The Covid-19 pandemic brought with it a number of new developments, and one of those was the increased interest in London-based content subscription service OnlyFans. The site has been around since 2016, but it really took off in early 2020, with CEO Tim Stokely telling BuzzFeed in May 2020 that the site was gaining 200,000 new users and 7,000-8,000 new content creators every 24 hours.
OnlyFans is best known as a platform for posting explicit, adult content, which fans can view by paying a subscription. While it is also used for other purposes such as promoting artists' work, adult content is by far its biggest export. However, on August 24 they announced their decision to ban "any content containing sexually explicit conduct" as of October 2021. This decision was made following difficulties securing funding despite the phenomenal growth and potential of the platform. Investors were reportedly wary of associating themselves with a business built on adult content.
The announcement was met with furious backlash as the adult content creators expressed their sense of betrayal. OnlyFans was built on the back of their work and they felt that they were being used and abandoned, many left without a reliable source of income. Less than a week after the announcement, OnlyFans decided to reverse the decision. A spokesperson said they no longer needed to enforce the ban "due to banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support all genres of creators." So, it’s back to business as usual!
