Sexually explicit content will be prohibited on Onlyfans.


OnlyFans, a subscription site known for adult content, has announced that starting October 1st, it would restrict sexually explicit photographs and videos NewsReport gathered.

On the site, people will still be allowed to publish nude content.

However, this must be done in accordance with OnlyFans’ policies.

The announcement comes after BBC News requested a reaction from the firm in response to stolen records relating to accounts that posted unlawful content.

According to OnlyFans, the shift came as a result of pressure from banking partners.

During the pandemic, the site grew in popularity, and it now claims to have 130 million users.

“In order to secure our platform’s long-term viability and to continue to host a diverse community of creators and viewers, we must evolve our content guidelines,” OnlyFans said in a statement.

The London-based social media site enables its creators to post nude videos and photos and charge subscribers for tips or a monthly fee.

Creators can post a range of content from cooking to fitness videos, but it is best known for pornography.

In return for hosting the material, OnlyFans takes a 20% share of all payments.

Thursday’s announcement comes after BBC News approached the company for its response to leaked documents and concerns about its handling of accounts posting illegal content.

The documents – described as “compliance manuals” – show that although illegal content itself is removed, OnlyFans lets moderators give creators multiple warnings before closing accounts.

Moderation specialists and child protection experts say this shows OnlyFans has some “tolerance” for accounts posting illegal content.

In response to the BBC’s investigation, OnlyFans said the documents are not manuals or “official guidance”, it does 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, founded in 2016 by Essex businessman Tim Stokely, has come under fire in the past after a BBC News investigation found under-18s had used fake identification to set up accounts on the site. In June, BBC News found that under-18s sold explicit videos on the site, despite it being illegal for people to share indecent images of children.

After the BBC investigation, the children’s commissioner for England said OnlyFans needed to do more to stop underage users. In response to the investigation, OnlyFans said it had closed the accounts flagged and refunded all active subscriptions.

In July, the company’s first monthly transparency report said that it deactivated 15 OnlyFans accounts after finding indecent images of children on those accounts.
