OnlyFans has pumped…the breaks on its plans to ban sexually explicit content on its platform.
Full story below…
As reported, the wildly popular subscription service announced its intent to prohibit sexually explicit content. A move that looked set to displace a number of its performers and disgruntle their fans.
The company cited the need to ensure “the long-term sustainability” of its platform.
Disapproval was widespread and OnlyFans has subsequently announced a pivot.
Moments ago, the platform issued a statement reversing the ban that was set to come into place on October 1.
“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.”
The news comes after rapper Tyga, who had been a very active adult performer on OnlyFans, announced the launch of a rival service.
Already renowned in its niche, OnlyFans popped the more during the pandemic – with a lengthy list of artists joining to cash in on their pin-up appeal. Notably at a time the global health crisis meant they were unable to tour. Said list included Trey Songz and August Alsina.
