OnlyFans abandons adult content ban

OnlyFans has backed down from its planned changes to ban adult content from its platform.

Last week, the subscription platform announced changes to its terms of service that would prohibit the publication of sexually explicit content on its platform in spite of this making up the vast majority of the site’s 2 million creators. 

The London-based company – owned by pornography mogul Leo Radivinsky – said that it was ‘evolving’ its content guidelines “in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform,” with the changes being made to comply with the requests of banking partners.

The decision was met with a massive backlash from creators who accused OnlyFans of building its business off the labour of sex workers and casting them aside when it was expedient to do so. 

However, in a remarkable about-face OnlyFans has announced a reversal of that announcement. 

In a statement on Twitter, the company stated: “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.”
