Key Take Aways
OnlyFans is a social media site that allows creators to post content and connect with their fans, with the option to charge a fee. While it was for creators in the adult industry at first, it now includes creators from a range of fields.
Despite this, OnlyFans still has strict rules for sexually explicit content. It does not allow sexually explicit conduct, such as hardcore bondage, or posts that promote violence or illegal activity. Additionally, OnlyFans does not allow posts that show hate speech, child exploitation, or self-harm.
OnlyFans’ acceptable use policy points out specific posts not allowed on the site. In addition to the above, OnlyFans does not allow illegal content, revenge porn, or those that go against intellectual property rights. The site also does not allow sexually explicit material with minors or other illegal activity.
While OnlyFans has strict rules for sexually explicit content, it allows certain types of adult content.
Creators may post nude photos and videos, as long as they are within the content guidelines.
OnlyFans also allows sexual content that does not go against its acceptable use policy.
As a social media site, OnlyFans is a space for creators to connect with their fans. While heavy on the pornographic industry, many creators have found success with posts on fitness, cooking, makeup tutorials, and music.
Users and fans on OnlyFans may join creators’ accounts and pay a monthly fee for exclusive content. Creators set their own prices, with a minimum subscription price of $4.99. Fans can also send tips to creators, which can be great for those looking to earn extra cash.
In August 2021, OnlyFans announced that it would ban sexually explicit content starting in October of the same year. This was to secure banking and payment services.
OnlyFans spokesperson said that the ban was to also “ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans.”
The decision to ban sexually explicit content on OnlyFans has had a great impact on the sex work industry, which has largely relied on the site as a source of income. Many creators have concerns about losing their source of income and the risk of removal from the pornographic industry. The ban has also raised questions about the treatment of sex workers.
After the ban on sexually explicit content, OnlyFans took it back and did not apply the change. The site now supports its diverse creator community while securing banking and payment services for creators and fans alike. OnlyFans has assured users that it will work with banking partners and payout providers to make sure the platform’s long-term sustainability. They also promise to protect users and make sure all posts on the site are lawful and meet OnlyFans’ terms.
Sex workers and those with an Onlyfans account cannot post illegal content. Such content like revenge porn, sexual assault, and sex trafficking videos goes against Onlyfans rules. With good reason! These posts are not only gross but hurt the Onlyfans community as a whole.
If you do post third-party material make sure as a content creator that you obey all of Onlyfans rules as well as other social media platforms.
