OnlyFans ban latest – Naked models BLAST website  and Bella Thorne for 'betrayal' after 'sexually explicit' content ban

SEX workers and models who create content on OnlyFans have blasted the company's move to ban explicit content from the site.

From October 1, members will still be able to post some nude content, but it will need to obey the new OnlyFans' policy.

But many popular creators – who turned to the site as a "safe space" to share their content and made it their sole source of income – have accused the app of "betraying" and "using" them to boost the platform's profile.

Content creator and student Camila Elle, 21, told MailOnline: "I feel betrayed by OnlyFans, I made it my entire livelihood, and quit my dreams of becoming a doctor to pursue a full time career on the site."

She continued: "Sex workers built this platform, it's a business to us. We were the ones who promoted OnlyFans across social media. They used us to build the site and now they're throwing us away."

Since the start of the pandemic, OnlyFans says their membership surged to 130 million users across the world.

    WHY IS ONLYFANS BANNING ADULT CONTENT?

    In a statement OnlyFans said: “In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.”

    This is to “comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers”.

    The company is trying to raise money from outside investors at a valuation of more than $1billion.

    The unexpected move will come as a shock to its 130 million users, with many flocking to the platform during the coronavirus pandemic as the production of regular pornography was impacted by lockdowns.

    OnlyFans has been praised for providing sex workers a safer place to do their jobs, but sex work does come with a stigma.

    The company positions itself more as a forum for musicians, fitness instructors and chefs than sex workers.

    In August 2021, OnlyFans introduced a new TikTok style app for iPhone, Android and smart telly, called OFTV.

    LAUREN GOODGER 'MAKES £1MILLION A MONTH'

    Towie star Lauren, 34, could be clearing seven figures every month, according to OnlyFans' calculator.

    That's partly because the former glamour model charges a whopping £33 a month to subscribe.

    That's an awful lot more than her partner, Charles Drury, who also sells sexy snaps on OnlyFans – but for under £8 a month.

    The couple recently welcomed baby LaRose to the world and shared heartwarming pictures of their new daughter on Instagram.

    ONLYFANS BAN ‘AWFUL’ AS IT WILL PUSH SEX WORKERS INTO LESS SAFE SPACES

    One former OnlyFans user warned the ban on sexually explicit content was “awful” because it would push those working in the sex trade who used the platform to other, less safe, spaces.

    Tilly Lawless said many sex workers used the platform, particularly during lockdown, as a vital source of income.

    She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that OnlyFans was under pressure from its banking partners and payment providers to “clean up their act”.

    She added: “I understand why they’re doing it from a financial perspective – they now have the platform they wanted, they can kick sex workers off now they’ve got influencers on it, they’ve got celebrities on it, they’ve got fitness people on it. They can make money that way, they don’t need sex workers like they did when they started.

    “But I can’t understand it from a wiping out (sex) trafficking perspective, because getting rid of platforms like this, none of that actually stops people in dangerous scenarios, it actually just makes it harder for sex workers who are using those platforms to work safely.”

    CARDI B MAKES '£15.3MILLION A MONTH' ON ONLYFANS

    The American rapper, 28, announced she was joining OnlyFans last year on Instagram and, according to the calculator's formula, she could now be making tens of millions.

    While the amount seems sky high, the calculator comes up with the figure by looking at what she'd earn if just five per cent of her 105million Instagram followers paid her £3.66 monthly subscription fee.

    If a creator has one million followers and charges the same as Cardi B, they're estimated to earn up to £183,000 a month, according to OnlyFans' own estimates.

    Fans get a first look at her content for £3.70 a month, but she made it clear from word go that there would be no nudes.

    She told her fans: “Ok guys so now you can subscribe to my only fans! Yes I will be putting my BTS from WAP there ! and my day to day content. Also any rumours floating around. NO I WON’T BE SHOWING PY , TS AND A.”

    Cardi B is thought to be able to make millions on OnlyFans every month

    After experiencing backlash for the change of rules, Bella wrote on Twitter: “PT1 Remove the stigma behind sex, sex work, and the negativity that surrounds the word SEX itself by bringing a mainstream face to it that’s what I was trying to do, to help bring more faces to the site to create more revenue for content creators on the site.

    “I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalize the stigmas, and in trying to do this I hurt you.

    “I have risked my career a few times to remove the stigma behind sex work, porn, and the natural hatred people spew behind anything sex related. I wrote and directed a porn against the high brows of my peers and managers because I WANTED to help with the stigma behind sex.”

    She continued: “I am a mainstream face and when you have a voice, a platform, you try to use you in helping others and advocate for something bigger than yourself.

    “Again in this process I hurt you and for that I’m truly sorry.”
