Onlyfans And Censorship
Last year Onyfans sounded some alarms in social networks after announcing a possible ban of explicit sex on the platform.
The platform tried to justify itself by claiming that the measure “obeyed the concerns of bankers and investors” just when they were looking to raise more funds.
Such arguments were not enough for many enthusiasts, and during the controversy, a lot of decentralized alternatives started to appear.
However, shortly after, the platform announced that an agreement was reached with content creators so that they could continue to offer their services without restrictions.
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.
