There are certain pages and parts of the internet which is made for or has become a places “Not Safe For Work” (NSFW). OnlyFans has been known for this and has a reputation and delivers certain types of content. That has been done with content creators who is willing and selling it online. They have been using the subscription model paying fixed monthly fees and also one-time payments for behind the pay-wall content as well.
Therefore, today’s news isn’t surprising. The rumours of OnlyFans going away from pornographic, Sex-Work and Lewd content has been on the horizon. Especially, since the website and owners has been searching for investment and funding to run it. Because, having such vast amount of content and distribution online has to be expensive with storage and such.
OnlyFans is already getting percentages of the sales from each creator. That is clearly not enough. While there is certain top creators who is earning millions of dollars and others have made this into a livelihood. Where they pose, drop pictures and videos. There been leaks from the page and some are using this as a “risky” Instagram account and pocketing easy money.
Now, the owners and shareholders of OnlyFans are going away from what they are known for. They are initially saying they are shifting content and focus. When they from October will block sexual explicit content. That is really going away from the special subscription to certain IG Models and internet personalities. Even some music artists has made accounts and blown up too.
Therefore, OnlyFans and the way the services has been rendered has been on the explicit content. It hasn’t been made on selling knitting tricks or cooking lectures. No, this page haven’t been family friendly or even artistic. No, this page has been a porn page with a pay-subscriptions, which has become a talk of the town. It has gone viral and been discussed online. If you follow certain people on YouTube. You will see them rating OnlyFans pages and telling how they are posting content. Therefore, this will also be lost genre there as well.
Certainly, the easy money and struggles will hit several of accounts on OnlyFans. As they have been living off and having a pay-off from the website. There will also be a bunch of people wondering where to go and wonder if they can follow their star, internet personality or IG model elsewhere. Since this has been the go to place for this and easily accessible.
While we can wonder, why the OnlyFans does it now? And if they were bushwhacked into a lewd site? As it seemed like a Paetron, but turned into a “pay-to-play” and “members only” hub. Instead, some of the creators now have to seek safe-haven elsewhere. If it even exists or is this accessible for the ones selling it.
What is also striking is that the OnlyFans page is going against it’s biggest earners and what it has become into. The OnlyFans isn’t a Paetron. Neither is it a Ko-Fi or Rokfin. It is showing NSFW and porn, which is what all the people are coming there in the first place. They are coming their with their hands over fist. The customers are not coming there for Disney stories, but Playboy bunnies unwind and being naughty.
So, the OnlyFans blocking and stopping this content is going against the grain. They are taking away the reason why the people are subscribing there and using their money on the services there. For me… this is a move of self-destruction and destroying what they already have.
This is like Colgate stop selling toothpaste or Cadbury stop selling chocolate. Because, investors saying they need to rebrand them to something else. However, we know these brands for one thing and when you take that away. Than there isn’t anything else left of it.
This is destroying what was built. OnlyFans is making itself irrelevant and soon it can be remembered like MySpace or Google+. Peace.
