OnlyFans, the online subscription platform known for its abundant amount of pornographic content, will prohibit its users from publishing any material that contains “sexually explicit conduct” as of October 1.
According to a release issued by the London-based company, this change will be made “to ensure the platform’s long-term sustainability, continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans (…), and fulfill requests from our banking partners and payment providers. “.
“We will share more details in the coming days and will actively support and guide our creators through this change in content guidelines,” the company said. “OnlyFans remains committed to the highest levels of security and content moderation of any social platform.”
According to the company’s first monthly transparency report, in July 2021 only 114,065 creator accounts were approved out of a total of 279,222 requests and fifteen accounts in which child pornography was detected were deactivated.
Just a few days ago, OnlyFans officially launched OFTV, a free streaming service that will not include any sexual material, but rather original content on fitness, cooking, comedy, health and music from more than 100 creators.
The company’s revenue for fiscal 2020 increased 553% over the prior year, to $ 383 million. This came amid lengthy shutdowns and lockdowns caused by the covid-19 pandemic, with millions of people around the world searching for new forms of online entertainment, as well as artists and content creators who saw OnlyFans as a way to make up for the decrease in your income.
