OnlyFans Drops Own Ban on Posting Pornographic Content

OnlyFans provided a financial lifeline to sex workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now those who have built businesses on the platform are wondering whether they’ll see everything evaporate.

The social-media company said Thursday it would ban sexually explicit content starting in October, but it also said nude photos and videos would still be allowed — provided they’re consistent with OnlyFans policy. That’s leaving creators questioning where the company will draw the line between what’s acceptable and what violates its rules.
