OnlyFans has been in the spotlight for the past few weeks after the popular content creator platform announced it would ban sexually explicit content on 1 October 2021. Various factors were involved in this ban especially related to the lack of investors over the platform’s sexual content. OnlyFans has also been under fire due to the reports of child pornography being uploaded to the site. However, in a complete 180, OnlyFans has announced that it will no longer ban sexually explicit content in October.
The company announced in a tweet that the 1 October 2021 changes are no longer a requirement due to the banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support “all” genres of creators. This includes creators who publish and share sexually explicit videos and photos.
The proposed October 1st, 2021 changes are no longer required due to banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support all genres of creators.”
It is completely up to the users now. OnlyFans did kind of throw them under the bus even after the platform raked in billions of dollars thanks to the sexually explicit content uploaded every day. The company has not publically shared how the recent ban announcement affected its user and creator base yet.
Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard.
We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.
OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.
