OnlyFans website to ban ‘sexually explicit’ content
OnlyFans, a site where fans pay creators for their photos and videos, plans to ban “sexually explicit” content.
The ban will begin on October 1 and is the result of requests from banking partners and companies that handle financial transactions, a spokesperson said.
Still, nudity is fine if it is “consistent” with company policy. It is unclear what that policy is and the company did not respond to questions. OnlyFans will share more information in the “next few days.”
OnlyFans has become famous as a space for celebrities to interact with people on a personal level, as well as a place where sex workers can post and get paid in a relatively safe way.
It is not available as an app through the Apple and Google stores, which prohibit pornography. OnlyFans has tried to distance itself from its association with pornography, recently announcing an OFTV streaming app, which is available for download from all major tech platforms, and features content in categories such as fitness, cooking, comedy, and music.
OnlyFans says it has 130 million users and 2 million creators who have collectively made $ 5 billion.
Bloomberg was the first to report the news.
