OnlyFans Porn Ban
Ok, people, the stinky lumpy brown stuff may have just hit the “fan” in a major way — if you’re an adult content creator currently making money on OnlyFans, that is. It has been reported by several major news sources that OnlyFans, which revolutionized the sale and delivery of adult content on the internet, is banning sexually explicit content (porn) from its platform effective October 1st. Is this true, or just more social-media-spawned fake news? Let’s find out.

ATTENTION, MUCHACHOS & MUCHACHETTES: The dreaded day that so many in the adult content world have been fearing would someday come may have finally arrived. I’m going to sort the bull from the facts and explain exactly what you need to do next, if you’re currently using OnlyFans to sell adult content.

There is a ton, and I mean a metric s#!t-ton, of confusion circulating in the adult model world right now about what exactly has occurred regarding the OnlyFans acceptable use policy. Some people believe the news reports, while some others are calling BS, partly due to the responses some creators have received from OnlyFans support reps. Here’s what we know.

On August 19th, shortly before 2pm Eastern Time, Bloomberg reported that OnlyFans was changing it’s content policy to exclude “sexually explicit” material, while continuing to allow nude content. The article, by reporter Lukas Shaw, claims that OnlyFans is “getting out of the pornography business” due mainly to pressure from banking partners and payment processors who look down on the popular platform’s embrace of sexually explicit content.

OnlyFans may be transitioning to “OnlyPrudes.”

OnlyFans, which was founded in November of 2016 by a pair of British brothers, and has quickly grown to 130 million subscribers and over $1 billion of annual subscription revenue, is actively seeking investment capital to expand its operations.

Finding that much capital can be a challenge when you’re hosting lots of seriously risque content that would make many of the institutional prudes on Wall Street pee themselves and clutch their pearls if they were ever to catch even a minor glimpse.

The company had recently decided on taking a turn towards the mainstream, actively seeking to recruit non-adult influencers like musicians, comedians, YouTubers, and others. This had many in the adult content community worried that OnlyFans would ultimately turn its back on the sex workers that made it great and built the platform into what it is today. Turns out, they may have been right to worry.

 

OnlyFans Says Goodbye To Online Naughtiness

The Bloomberg report was quickly picked up by several other reputable news sources, including Variety and Vice.com, and it indeed appears to be true. Even the New York Times is now reporting the story. OnlyFans did, in fact, issue a statement announcing this policy change, and it was received by several news sources.

The confusion I mentioned earlier seems to stem from some claims made by OnlyFans support reps that came in response to content creators who contacted the company about the reports. One adult model received a response that indicated “There has not been any change in our Acceptable Use Policy” and that OnlyFans does not plan to “move away from adult content.”

Mixed signals coming from OnlyFans has created confusion among many in the adult content creator community. Despite assurances from support reps, this policy shift does appear to be coming.

Parsing the words in the reply carefully, we can see that those claims are actually not in contradiction to the news reports. Indeed, the OnlyFans policy has not (yet) changed, and the platform is not moving away from “adult content.” As stated in the original Bloomberg piece, nude content would continue to be allowed. It’s “sexually explicit” content that’s getting the ax. Porn.

UPDATE: Okay, looks like the backlash from sex workers across the internet has had its effect, and OnlyFans has responded. The company announced, just days after the porn ban news broke, that they have cancelled their planned policy change and will continue to allow sexually explicit content!

Most sex workers seem to be EXTREMELY suspicious of this move, and many are expecting the porn ban to occur eventually anyway. We’ll have to see where this goes, but it’s clear that OnlyFans is now a very unstable platform on which to build a following and subscriber base, if you put out explicit content.

 

Buttler, What The Fan F#CK Do I Do Now?

Given that this change is actually happening, adult content creators on OnlyFans have to seriously consider abandoning the platform — and fast. If your brand is all about hardcore content, then there is no way you can continue to use OnlyFans to sell subscriptions to your fan followers.

Creators that have a sophisticated marketing machine in operation can pivot to using OnlyFans as an “on-ramp” to their content funnels, while hosting their hardcore material elsewhere. But those who don’t clearly need a new home.

Luckily, there are alternatives. The success of OnlyFans spurred a bunch of competing “fanclub platforms” to emerge that offer much of the same functionality and features.

LoyalFans - Alternative To OnlyFans

There are a few decent candidates, but none stand out like LoyalFans. This platform was created by the owner of Clips4Sale, which is a long-standing adult content platform specializing in short video clips. Most models in the industry know and trust that site, and many have used it for years.

LoyalFans is a great alternative to OnlyFans because, as a creator, you basically get everything you’re used to, but much more comes with it. There’s one feature, in particular, that LoyalFans offers which completely changes the game for adult content creators — they pay you 5% commission on ALL THE SPENDING from subscribers you refer to the platform…for LIFE. Pretty much nobody else in this game does that.

Of all the “fanclub” platforms that you could choose as your new home, LoyalFans is the clear stand-out. The best thing about it is the referral program for new subscribers. 5% on all spending for life. Can’t beat that with a dead Hitachi.

Yes, this means that you can refer your existing OnlyFans subscribers to LoyalFans, and you will get 5% of everything they spend on the site, whether it’s on you or OTHER MODELS, for the life of the subscriber.

Not only that, but LoyalFans pays out the same percentage to content creators that OnlyFans does (currently 80% of spending). So, do some simple math and realize that you could actually make quite a bit more on LoyalFans than you currently do on OnlyFans.

The 5% subscriber referral payout is totally passive, by the way, because you don’t have to produce any content or sell your time in order to enjoy revenue from it. If these subscribers go off and spend thousands on other models, you still get your cut. As an experienced internet marketer, I can assure you that there is nothing in the world sweeter than PASSIVE INCOME. It’s the bee’s balls.

LoyalFans is currently used by some extremely high profile influencers, such as Amanda Nicole.

I’m currently advising adult models and creators to sign up for a LoyalFans account pronto. You will need time to prepare your fan base for the switch, and sell them on the reliability and trustworthiness of LoyalFans.

Switching to a new platform can be hard for many subscribers. They tend to get used to things the way they are and lack trust in new sites. You will need to begin the process NOW of convincing them to follow you over. With enough time spent encouraging them, they will eventually agree to tag along.

The OnlyFans policy change is set to occur on October 1st — you’ve only got a little over a month. Get going!!
