OnlyFans Ban Leads Sex Workers to Make a New Game Plan
The subscription image and video company OnlyFans faced immediate backlash to its ban on sexually explicit content from its platform. As a result of the ban, many sex workers abandoned the platform, a place where many creators had been able to make meaningful income while retaining ownership of their images and videos. Amid the uproar, the company quickly reversed course and suspended the ban, having blamed the change on its banking partners' policies. However, the company's brand damage appeared serious, as some adult creators remained skeptical about the term "suspended" and began the process of moving their content to competitor apps.
