OnlyFans says it will ban sexually explicit content


OnlyFans is set to ban sexually explicit content from its platform, the company said Thursday.

The popular photo-selling site said nude photos and videos will still reportedly be allowed if they meet the company’s new guidelines, but sex acts will not be allowed under new rules taking effect on Oct. 1. 

“OnlyFans will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually-explicit conduct,” the company said in a statement to The Post. “Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy.”

The company said the changes were necessary to “comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers.” 

“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 added.

OnlyFans, which has more than 130 million users and 2 million creators, has skyrocketed into popularity over the past several years by giving sex workers an organized platform to sell content. 

But even before Thursday’s porn ban, the profitable company had been trying to shed its smutty reputation, which has prevented it from attracting investment from traditional investors, who typically shy away from “vice” industries like porn, alcohol and firearms. 

Earlier this week, the company officially launched a no-nudity app called OFTV on the Apple and Google app stores, which featured content from celebrities like former porn star Mia Khalifa and actress Bella Thorne.
