Whether you're a content creator, a fan, or neither--it still affects everyone.
If you’ve spent any time on the internet in the past week, you’ve likely heard the news that OnlyFans will no longer host explicit content. Yesterday, the company backpeddled and stated they would continue with business as usual going forward, suspending the ‘new’ guidelines that were to go into effect October 1st.
Adult content creators, myself included, spent days scrambling in high stress and anxiety. While my account there has never been huge, it did afford a bit of side income I appreciated. However, the company didn’t just make this announcement and then leave things alone. Creators found their money being held, back charged for fans canceling multi-month subscriptions, and more. Because it’s not bad enough to remove someone’s income, but to punish them for attempting to move their content elsewhere and inform their clients, and take money they’d already earned…not good business practice.
Needless to say, for me anyway, the announcement they’d revised their plans did nothing but piss me off further. It came just an hour after I realized my bank account was in the negative due to chargebacks I didn’t anticipate or get any warning about. Not only have they lost me as a provider, they’ve lost me as a customer. I subscribed to a few accounts myself, but I’ll be following those ladies to wherever they move their content, unless it stays on OnlyFans.
If you’re a fan, and you’re wondering why you’ve not heard from your favorite content creator about where they’re moving, try finding them on social media. Twitter and IG are good places to start, or their personal website if they have one. Most creators I know have been making announcements and posting links on Twitter, a lot of them with free trials available for a few days. Personally, I’ve decided to move my content to Pocketstars for the most part. They’ve been on top of things with this crazy situation, and have been answering questions, inquiries, and making changes to their site on the fly. They were started by adult content creators (and are still run by them) so although I’m sure they’re in it for the money like anyone else, they have a vested interest in keeping things running.
But enough about that, here’s what I’ve had to say about a few things since we last spoke:
A piece of short erotica was featured on Satisfyer’s Spotify page, and is available in their app to listen to as well. I also published it in written form on Medium if you’d rather read it for yourself:
