OnlyFans Is Banning 'Sexually Explicit' Content This Year

OnlyFans is set to stop its users from sharing 'sexually explicit' content from October.

Although the subscription platform is open to everyone, it has gained a lot of popularity with sex workers who choose to share content on their own terms.

But its 130 million users could be in for a shock later this year when the platform outlaws content that shows 'sexually explicit conduct'.

In a statement to LADbible, the company 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 'is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy'.

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

The news is likely to cause some confusion with many of its users who like to share X-rated stuff, and OnlyFans has reassured users that 'more details' will be released in due course.

The statement continued: "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.

"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."

The announcement comes just days after OnlyFans launched its OFTV free streaming service, which does not include any sexually explicit content.

The streaming service features content from more than 100 OnlyFans creators and includes topics such as cooking, fitness, music and fitness.

Tim Stokely, OnlyFans founder and CEO said: "From the onset of launching OnlyFans, we have been a creator-first platform to give creators further autonomy and power over their content.

"We're all about giving creators more opportunities to get their content out there and more ways for our community to access it."

OFTV, which is available as an app for Apple and Android as well as on various TV services including Amazon's Fire and Roku, is a way for the site's content creators to promote themselves and - potentially - gain more paid subscriptions.
