OnlyFans censors sexually explicit content but keeps nudes
The OnlyFans website, known for its risque content and which gained popularity during the pandemic, announced Thursday that will censor all “sexually explicit” content from October.
The UK-based company, which claims to have two million “content creators” paid for uploading photos and videos, indicated that it will still allow nudity within an “acceptable use policy” still in definition.

OnlyFans said in a statement that the changes are in response to concerns from bankers and investors, as it seeks to expand its audience beyond adult content, with cooking or yoga photos and videos.
Since the 1st of october “OnlyFans will prohibit the publication of any content with explicit sexual conduct,” notes the newsletter. “Creators may continue to post … nudes as long as they are consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy,” he adds.

The text does not specify what OnlyFans considers to be sexually explicit content, but indicates that it will “share new details in the coming days.” “We remain dedicated to our community of 130 million users and more than two million creators that have received more than 5,000 million dollars in our platform “.
OnlyFans, a favorite of pornstars looking to make extra money, gained popularity during the pandemic, with sex workers connecting online with clients. But the site recently launched a “fit for work” channel offering videos focused on areas like fitness, music or cooking, to compete with platforms like Facebook that also pay content creators.

The news comes after Pornhub operator MindGeek revised its policies this year under pressure from payment processors concerned about complaints about posting illegal content on the site, such as rape or pedophile videos.
