onlyfans reverses

In a turn of events that I can say is not surprising, OnlyFans reverses. The company has announced this morning that they are going to reverse the ban on pornographic content that was originally set to go into effect in less than a month (Oct. 1st). 

In less than a week, the amateur run platform has decided to turn back on its original plan due to the backlash it received from its users and consumers. And I must say, in an era that is continuously growing in the favor of sex positivity, their originally planned ban was a slap in the face to many. 

On Wednesday morning, via Twitter, the company stated: 

“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 last week, many content creators started to provide discounts on their content fearing that in less than a month, some of that content would be irretrievable. But with the reversal in place, there is still uncertainty in trusting the website now that competing sites like JustFor.Fans welcomed everyone seeking porn-loving asylum

If OnlyFans continues to remain a go-to place for great original content produced by these actors, there are many issues that need to be fixed. 

In speaking with friend-to-the-site John Thomas on the initial news of the original proposed ban, he expressed:

“I delayed joining for a long time because of all the horror stories I’d heard about porn actors getting their accounts suspended, or being unable [to] access their earnings, due to breaking rules that were never clear or universally applied…What is more alarming is that the anti-sex work lobby is only gaining momentum, and I expect there to continue to be further de-sexualising of websites (such as Twitter) and the removal of pornography platforms ahead. I think it's more important than ever that sex workers and other human rights activists work together to ensure full decriminalization of sex work, which is the only way we can protect our livelihoods and safety going forwards.”

In the short week, there had been news that OnlyFans had to make the decision due to the influence of financial institutions making their transactions difficult. In an article shared by Xbiz earlier this week, OnlyFans CEO Tim Stokely stated:

“The change came in response to an increased level of obstacles from banks, which would ‘cite reputational risk and refuse our business…We pay over one million creators over $300 million every month, and making sure that these funds get to creators involves using the banking sector.”

Apparently, these banks were making payment challenging for all and in the upcoming weeks, OnlyFans really needs to get their shit together. 

For now, we will take the win that porn will continue to live on OnlyFans. One day and one video at a time!
