OnlyFans Says It Will Ban Sexually Explicit Content

«We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change,» the company tweeted Wednesday morning. «OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.»

The reversal came after pushback from content creators on OnlyFans, some of whom lost work during the pandemic and now earn an income through the site.

Morgan Music, a single mom from Washington who sells explicit photos and videos on OnlyFans as a side hustle, told NPR that the money she earns on the website has helped reduce her anxiety.

OnlyFans Says It Will Ban The Content It’s Best Known For: Pornography

«To have that lifted because I have, like, a savings account for the first time and have a good credit score for the first time in my life, I think it’s hard to really convey how much that means to a person’s quality of life,» Music said.

OnlyFans previously tweeted that the company would «not be what it is today» without sex workers and that the policy change was «necessary to secure banking and payment services to support you.»
