OnlyFans to BAN 'sexually explicit' content over pressure from investors after making millions from ‘porn subscriptions’

ONLYFANS is reportedly set to ban raunchy content after pressure from the company's payment providers and banking partners.

From October 1, members will still be able to post some nude content, but it will need to obey the new OnlyFans' policy banning sexually explicit images and video.


Since the start of the pandemic, the OnlyFans says their membership surged to 130 million users across the world.

But the company has since released a statement announcing the change at "the requests of its banking partners and payment providers".

It said: "In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.

"We will be sharing more details in the coming days, and we will actively support and guide our creators through this change in content guidelines.

"OnlyFans remains committed to the highest levels of safety and content moderation of any social platform. All creators are verified prior to being able to upload any content to OnlyFans, and all uploaded content is checked by automated systems and human moderators."

OnlyFans creators can post a range of content from cooking to fitness videos, but it is best known for adult content. 

Some creators post nude videos and photos that subscribers can only view by paying a tip or a monthly fee.

OnlyFans takes a 20 per cent cut of all payments.

Essex businessman Tim Stokely founded it in 2016.

On Wednesday OnlyFans announced it had launched a new “suitable for work” app that allows people to share nudity-free content.

Mr Stokely told Bloomberg: "OFTV provides a super convenient way for fans to watch content from favorite creators.

"There's no adult content on OFTV. Because it's not being monetised and there's no direct impact on creators' earnings, we are able to be in the app store."
