OnlyFans, a site where fans pay creators for their photos and videos, is planning to ban “sexually explicit” content.
OnlyFans has become famous as a platform where sex workers can post nude photos and videos and get paid in a relatively safe manner, and also for celebrities to interact with people on a personal level.
The ban on sexually explicit content will start Oct. 1 and is the result of requests from banking partners and companies that handle financial transactions, a spokesperson said.
Still, nudity is OK if it’s “consistent” with the company’s policy. It’s not clear what that policy is, and the company did not reply to questions. OnlyFans said it will be sharing more information in “coming days.”
The site is not available as an app via the Apple and Google stores, which ban pornography.
OnlyFans has tried to distance itself from its association with porn, recently announcing an OFTV streaming app, which is available for download from the major tech platforms, and features content around categories like fitness, cooking, comedy and music.
OnlyFans says it has 130 million users and two million creators who have collectively earned $5 billion US last year.
