OnlyFans shocks creators by reversing ban on sexual content


After Onlyfans shocked its followers by recently banning sexual content from the site, the creators, many of whom began removing explicit content that violated the platform’s new regulations, are now allowed to go back to posting normally.

In an unprecedented tweet, the steaming site announced that they’ll be reversing the ban initially put forth after banks stopped cooperating with OnlyFans.

“The proposed October 1st, 2021 changes are no longer required due to banking partners’ assurances that OnlyFans can support all genres of creators,” an OnlyFans spokesperson told The Verge.

The update comes only a day after Onlyfans founder and CEO went on record with the Financial Times, in which he clarified that the reason behind the ban was issues with banking partners.

Charlotte Edwards, founder of the campaign Sex Workers’ Financial Rights UK told Gizmodo that as a registered self-employed taxpayer, sex workers are one of the “most silenced and overlooked working groups in society.”

“Many sex workers have no choice but to obtain such loans/mortgages/business bank accounts under fraudulent pretenses, in terms of transparency relating to their line of work. This is forced criminal activity; these individuals could be prosecuted. Is that fair?” Edwards added, who was recently unable to obtain a pandemic loan from Santander due to the nature of her work.

Now, creators can either continue working on a site that almost sold them out when the situation got rough, or they can find alternative platforms to make ends meet.

After the news of reversing the ban broke out, OnlyFans assured its content creators that “An official communication to creators will be emailed shortly.”
