OnlyFans has suspended its decision to ban sexually explicit content. The decision comes after it received a big backlash over the planned policy change we reported about a few days ago. The backlash comes, surprise, from the porn content publishers on its platform. The backlash was not only verbally either, in response to the planned policy change, several content creators had already deleted their OnlyFans accounts and moved to alternate services.
In a press message OnlyFans says they “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.” Sex as an inclusion tool, why not.
But instead of inclusion, it’s probably the fact that changes are no longer required due to banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support all genres of creators. Money remains the best negociator of course.
OnlyFans was founded in 2016 and has over 130 million registered users and more than 2 million content creators.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
