After social media exploded with angry sex workers and advocates following OnlyFans announcement to ban sexually explicit content, the company changes its plan

Just a week ago, OnlyFans announced it would change its policy regarding sexually explicit content. The site had singlehandedly built its well-known name with adult content.

The news is good for sex workers who rely heavily on the website for a safe and steady income.

This also shows how easily such a community could crumble.


OnlyFans tweeted that they had “secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.”

The announcement to change its policies was evidently influenced by the companies banking partners and payment providers.

Social media was filled with frustration from many sex workers and advocates that helped create a name for the company, as well as bring in its revenue.


While this reversal comes as good news, it now has sex workers wary of the next time they may have the rug ripped out from under them or worried about being replaced by sex dolls.

OnlyFans was created in 2016 and took off during the pandemic as sex workers began using the platform for a safe source of income.

Founder Tim Stokely had said that the company was being forced to ban sexual content due to the unfair treatment by banks.
