OnlyFans REVERSE adult content ban after user backlash
OnlyFans REVERSE the ban on adult content after a massive user backlash that saw thousands desert the platform.
The OnlyFans subscription service has now reversed its decision to ban adult content. This comes less than a week after the announcement of the policy change. SoSpoilt – an online platform designed to help bloggers, artists, influencers and content creators of all kinds earn from what they say saw a 300% increase in new signups after OnlyFans announced the ban adult content.
The overturning of the ban immediately angered some sex workers who compared the overthrow to an abusive ex-boyfriend trying to win them back.
OnlyFans is used primarily, but not exclusively, by amateur sex workers to sell pornographic content. Last week it announced it would ban content showing sex, masturbation and other explicit acts, while still allowing general nudity.
However, today, Wednesday, August 25, the platform announced that it will suspend its decision to ban pornography.
Tim Stokely, founder and CEO of OnlyFans, told the Financial Times this week that Bank of New York Mellon, Metro Bank and JPMorgan Chase were the banking partners behind the initial move.
Stokely said the company was already “fully compliant” with Mastercard’s new rules and had “no bearing” on its change in policy.
