OnlyFans just admitted that it “would not be what it is today” if they were not hosting virtual prostitution on their website.
The Twitter account for OnlyFans just put out a tweet admitting that they would be nothing if not for the virtual prostitution that occurs on their website, which has greatly contributed to the site’s popularity in recent years.
“Dear Sex Workers, The OnlyFans community would not be what it is today without you. The policy change was necessary to secure banking and payment services to support you. We are working around the clock to come up with solutions. #SexWorkIsWork,” tweeted OnlyFans.

This comes after OnlyFans, where the vast majority of users are women posting sexually explicit videos and images for paying customers, announced that by October that the platform will be banning any “sexually-explicit content,” in order to “ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans.” Republican Congressman Paul Gosar applauded the announcement following his initiation of Congressional pressure against the site in April this year, as was previously reported by National File.
Effective 1 October, 2021, OnlyFans will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually-explicit conduct. 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. Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy. These changes are to comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers. We will be sharing more details in the coming days, and we will actively support and guide our creators through this change in content guidelines.
“It’s a positive development when women and children are protected. Glad to see @OnlyFans move to ban illicit content,” tweeted Congressman Gosar.
