X-rated subscription site OnlyFans have reversed their decision to ban sexually explicit content.
Last week, the company announced that the new policy would come into effect from October 1, but the decision was met with serious backlash.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the platform wrote: “Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard. We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.”

“OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators,” they added. “An official communication to creators will be emailed shortly.”
OnlyFans is a subscription-based service, which allows content creators to earn money from users who subscribe to their account.
Since it launched in 2016, OnlyFans has allowed sex workers to share images and videos of a sexual nature behind a pay wall.
While the site boasts content of a sexual nature, it’s also used by a host of celebrity musicians, models and reality stars to share non-explicit content.
It’s exploded in popularity over the past year, as it’s allowed celebrities to make easy money during the coronavirus pandemic.
Over the past few months alone, stars like Tyga, Cardi B, Bella Thorne and Blac Chyna have joined the phenomenon.
Goss.ie previously listed the celebrities who have joined OnlyFans, and revealed much they’re earning through their personal content.
We also spoke to Irish social media star Niamh O’Connor about her decision to sign up to the site.
A documentary on Irish OnlyFans content creators is coming to Virgin Media One on September 6.
