OnlyFans reverses decision to ban porn on platform after sex workers were left ‘angry and confused’

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In a statement on Wednesday, the company thanked everyone for “making your voices heard” and confirmed they will not ban the raunchy content.

“We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change,”

the company confirmed.

“OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.”

The U-turn came after it was announced on August 19, 2021, that the subscription content service would be banning sexually explicit videos starting in October.

OnlyFans — which was founded by Timothy Stokely in 2016 — said that the upcoming changes were due to pressure from banking partners and payment providers.

When OnlyFans made its recent announcement, the company explained: “In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform, and continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.”

The news was released just days after the company launched its new app, OFTV. 

The new platform which features free content from OnlyFans creators, might not be the content users are expecting.

It has been reported that OFTV will feature genres like fitness, cooking, comedy, music, and more.

The company said: “From the onset of launching OnlyFans, we have been a creator-first platform to give creators further autonomy and power over their content.

“We’re all about giving creators more opportunities to get their content out there and more ways for our community to access it.”

It is unknown if OFTV is the start of a new brand for the company — which said that they will provide more information about their new policies at a later date.
