In a completely unexpected move, OnlyFans he has forbidden what has led him to economic success: sexuality. The high voltage of the content of many of the accounts that offer content to the service has always been back in a controversy of which the legality was not exactly known in some cases, but due to the immensity of the service and the number of users that exist, went unnoticed over time.
But overnight, OnlyFans has announced that it will condemn without any qualms any type of content related to explicitly sexual behaviors, thus preventing users from posting images that meet some of the following conditions:
- Real or simulated sexual relations, including genital-genital, oral-genital, etc., etc. between persons of either sex.
- Real or simulated masturbation.
- Any display of genitalia of any person that is extreme or offensive.
- Real or simulated material featuring bodily fluids commonly secreted during sexual conduct.
All content that does not comply with any of these points must be eliminated before December 1, 2021 or on another date that the service itself will inform users, and the measures will begin to take effect from October 1, 2021, as indicated in the new specifications of the service.
Why now and so suddenly?
Officially there is no no official reason why OnlyFans wanted to take this unexpected turn of the wheel, but the decision coincides after the BBC will publish a report about the service in which the lack of monitoring and supervision of all the content that users upload is demonstrated.
Thus, for example, the report called into question the supervision of possible content involving child sexual content, as well as the creation of user accounts by minors, who access the service with ease.
There is also the long shadow of sexual exploitation, a trend that has become the main source of income for the service and that now, after these measures, will practically disappear completely.
This sudden decision may be nothing more than a preventive measure for possible severe punishment by regulatory bodies, as the BBC report could raise a serious problem that could lead OnlyFans to the depths of the internet. We will see if all this explodes in some way or if the service is finally reinvented with another more social methodology and not so focused on sexual exploitation, which is what the service has ended up deriving from.
