OnlyFans will not send the porn to get dressed. The platform famous for sexually explicit photos and videos published by creators for paid subscriptions, announced Wednesday that it had reversed its decision to ban these types of content.
Tim Stokely, founder and CEO of the site had motivated his initial decision by the threat of large banks to end their relations with OnlyFans, for fear of seeing their reputation tarnished.
“We have assembled the necessary safeguards to support our diverse community of creators and have suspended the regulatory change scheduled for October 1, OnlyFans tweeted. We will continue to provide accommodation for all creators. “
150 million users worldwide
Founded in 2016 in the United Kingdom, OnlyFans took off thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, which has kept hundreds of millions of internet users in their homes. The platform now claims more than 150 million users, a figure multiplied by more than 15 in just two years.
OnlyFans says it has more than 1.5 million content creators, to whom the site claims to donate more than $ 5 billion per year. On the site, “fans” can pay to subscribe to profiles that interest them and thus have access to updated content at different intervals.
