OnlyFans Drops Its Porn Ban

OnlyFans has dropped its controversial porn ban.

In a statement on Twitter, the company said: "Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard.

"We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.

"OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators."

This comes just a few days after the content-sharing site announced that it was introducing a raft of new rules later this year that would clamp down on adult content. As a result, pornstars and other adult film creators started branching out into alternatives to OnlyFans.

In a statement to LADbible at the time, OnlyFans said: "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."

The company did go on to say that nudity would be allowed as long as it was 'consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy'.

According to the OnyFans terms, nudity is permitted as long it isn't public nudity, or broadcast from a country where public nudity is illegal.

Company creator Tim Stokley said banks were to blame for the proposed change.

Speaking to The Financial Times, he said: "The change in policy, we had no choice - the short answer is banks."

The move was quickly criticised by some of the site's content creators, who said they were concerned with the news.

Courtney Tillia, who traded teaching for an OnlyFans career, was one of those.

She said: "With OnlyFans's new statement about banning pornography I am concerned it is going to have an impact on me, it is going to have an impact on my income, my business.

"The extent of that though is unsure because what they're saying is so unclear, it's very vague.

"So were not sure to what extent are [they] banning it - Is it just that we can't sell it on our main page is just one thing that I've heard, is it that it has to be a PPV, or is it completely gone to the extent that are account are gone, our following is gone?

"Things that we've built up and established for years is just going to be gone on October 1st, which leaves us one month to figure out what am I going to do?"
