OnlyFans bans 'sexually explicit' images and videos - but nude content still allowed

OnlyFans bans 'sexually explicit' images and videos - but nude content still allowed

OnlyFans, a London-based social media platform, is popular with amateur pornographic models and has become more widely used during the coronavirus pandemic. But it says any posts featuring nudity will now need to be consistent with its updated policies.
OnlyFans will ban "sexually explicit" images and videos from October, the online subscription service has announced.

The social media platform, which is used by sex workers along with celebrities, musicians and comedians, allows "creators" to share pictures and videos with their subscribers.

Under the new rules, people will still be able to post nude content on the site, but it will need to be consistent with the London-based company's updated policies.

The firm said in a statement: "In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform, and continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines."

The OnlyFans website states that creators receive 80% commission on their earnings, while the remaining 20% covers "referral payments, payment processing, hosting, support, and all other services".

The BBC reported that the change came after the company was approached over concerns about its handling of accounts posting illegal content.

OnlyFans told the broadcaster it did not tolerate violations of its terms of service, and its systems and age verification go far beyond "all relevant global safety standards and regulations".

The site, which was founded in 2016 and has seen its popularity increase during the COVID-19 pandemic, says it has 130 million users.

OnlyFans said this week it was launching a new streaming platform and app called OFTV, on which creators can share video content on topics such as fitness, cooking, comedy and music.
