    OnlyFans Is Banning "Sexually Explicit" Content, And Here Are 16 Of The Most Appropriate Reactions

    "OnlyFans banning sex content is like KFC not selling chicken."

    It's been a rough couple of years for OnlyFans fans (lol).

    First, there was the Bella Thorne scandal, where she charged $200 for nude photos only to scam people, causing OnlyFans to update their policy to include a maximum on tipping amounts and subscription charges.

    Now, OnlyFans is once again updating their policy. According to Variety, starting Oct. 1, the company "will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually explicit conduct... In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.”

    Translation: They're banning porn.

    Basically, they're banning users from posting the exact type of content that made OnlyFans a success in the first place, and forcing a lot of sex workers to most likely lose their income. However, nude content will still supposedly be permitted as long as it abides by the new (yet to be released) guidelines.

    Anyway — naturally, a platform that updates its policy to negatively impact one of its largest demographics is going to upset said demographic. Here are some of the best responses while we all try and process this news together.

    As Only Fans decides to kick the core base it built itself around to the curb, I'd like to remind them that Tumblr was purchased by Yahoo for $1.1 billion in 2013, and, following it's ban of adult content, was sold in 2019 by parent company Verizon for $3 million dollars.

    "Only Fans" ain't shit without sex workers. Just like Tumblr before it, social media platforms love to use sex workers to launch and rise then ditch them when they want the respectability of the mainstream. https://t.co/MpyXht4QdA

    For those making fun of the girls who make their income off of Only Fans, y’all some special type goofys. I never really seen women bashing men who hustle. How is taking away someone’s money funny to you? Once OF finds their funding they’ll go bankrupt.
