What is OnlyFans and how does it work? Why did it change its mind about banning porn?

Who is OnlyFans for?
OnlyFans is a place where people can share content. It is based in London. It was started by Timothy Stokely, and it is only a website. There are no official apps for it. Creators can use it to charge money for videos, photos, and even one-on-one chats. In the adult entertainment business, it is very popular. Early in 2019, the New York Times ran a story that said OnlyFans had changed sex work for good, calling it “the paywall of porn.”

Why did OnlyFans want to get rid of porn?
In a statement to the media, the UK-based company said on August 19, 2021, that it would stop letting people post content with sexually explicit content. The company said it needed to comply with “banking partners and payout providers.” “In order to make sure that the platform will be around for a long time and to continue to have a community of creators and fans that is open to everyone, we must change our content guidelines,” the statement said.

Let’s not forget that because OnlyFans has hosted X-rated content, the service is only available on the web and not on mobile app platforms like iOS and Android. Axios said that OnlyFans has had trouble finding outside investors because creators can post explicit content on the site. Maybe both app stores and investors couldn’t get past the porn issue. If that’s the case, it’s not surprising that OnlyFans thought it had to “clean up” to get money.

Remember that OnlyFans has already tried to ban porn before. It just started OFTV, a free streaming service that doesn’t let you watch anything sexy. Instead, it has content made by more than 100 different people. OFTV is currently streaming more than 800 videos, ranging from fitness to cooking.

OnlyFans has a big network of people who make and like adult content. Corinna Kopf, for example, can make as much as $1 million per month. Even after the Corinna Kopf OnlyFans leaks, she is still making a lot of money.

OnlyFans suddenly said on Twitter on August 25, 2021, that it would no longer try to ban sexually explicit content this fall. The news came after an interview with The Financial Times in which the CEO of OnlyFans said that the ban was caused by problems with the bank partners of the company. Still, the site got a lot of bad feedback from subscribers, creators, and the media. Many people said that OnlyFans used sex workers to get powerful and then betrayed them.

OnlyFans has now taken back the ban. It said that it was no longer needed because “banking partners have assured OnlyFans that it can support creators of all kinds.”

Who works with OnlyFans?
OnlyFans is used by creators of all kinds, not just those who make sex videos. Models, musicians, actors, fitness experts, and people with a lot of followers all use OnlyFans to make more money. They can get money from fans directly once a month, from tips, or from the pay-per-view feature. Blac Chyna, for example, charges fans $20 a month to access her OnlyFans page, and rapper Rubi Rose made $100,000 on OnlyFans in just two days by posting photos from her Instagram.

Bella Thorne, an actress, also said she made more than $2 million in one week on OnlyFans.

How to follow or subscribe to a creator
So, let’s say you don’t want to be a creator on OnlyFans, but you do want to be a fan. Make an account on OnlyFans, then go to the Home page to look for someone to follow. Once you find them, you can tap the star on their profile to add them to a list or mark them as a favorite.

On their profile, you can also see the levels of their subscriptions. Cardi B, a musician, charges $4.99 a month, even though she only has six posts behind a paywall right now. When she is online, her profile will say “available now” to let you know. On her profile, you can also see the last time you saw her. At the time this guide was written, she had not been seen since March 24, 2022.

This is one example of what it’s like to follow a creator on OnlyFans as a fan. If you don’t want to pay every month, you can also PPV or tip a creator, as we’ve already said. Some creators on OnlyFans also have links to their Amazon wishlists, where you can buy things for them. Just remember that this isn’t the same as OnlyFans and that it doesn’t mean you’ll be able to see their content.
