OnlyFans delays plan to ban sexually explicit content after backlash

OnlyFans has announced that it will delay making changes to policy on content creation, following a widespread backlash by its users.

The content subscription service announced plans last week to block sexually explicit photos and videos from October.

On Wednesday, it tweeted that it has “suspended the planned 1 October policy change”.




It is currently unclear if the delay will be permanent.

OnlyFans wrote on twitter that it would “continue to provide a home for all creators”.

“Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard,” said the company.



“We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned 1 October policy change.

“OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.”

In an email to creators it said: “The proposed 1 October 2021 changes are no longer required, due to banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support all genres of creators. OnlyFans is committed to providing a safe and dependable platform for all creators and their fans.”

OnlyFans makes its money by taking 20% of all payments made to its content creators.

The platform reported a 75% increase in new creators in May last year, during lockdown.
