OnlyFans to Ban Explicit Sexual Content Starting in October

Share this article:

The site, which features numerous Twitch streamers such as Amouranth, Indiefoxx, Alinity, and xoAeriel, will prohibit “sexually explicit” content while still allowing nudity.

This will be part of a new policy, which the platform is still waiting to unveil and publicly release. “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,” OnlyFans said in a statement.

“Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy,” they added but didn’t clarify the extent of the nudity allowed. That said, OnlyFans is planning to announce more details regarding the change to this more safe environment in the coming days and will be helping guide creators with the transition process.

The news will surely come as a hit to some big content creators. Corinna Kopf reportedly made over $1m in just 48 hours on OnlyFans. Meanwhile, Twitch star Alinity says she made more in two months than she would have in ten years steaming.

At the time of writing, OnlyFans has a whopping 130 million users with over 2 million creators. It’s unclear what the company expects its site audience to look like in the months leading up to and following the content ban.

Here is the text of OnlyFans’ statement: 

Effective 1 October, 2021, OnlyFans will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually-explicit conduct. 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. Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy.

These changes are to comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers.

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. 

We remain dedicated to our community of 130 million users and over 2 million creators that have earned over $5 billion on our platform.

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.

As part of our commitment to safety and transparency, we are releasing our first Monthly Transparency Report for July 2021.
