In a move as dumb — and as predictable — as when Tumblr got rid of sex (or claimed to), OnlyFans, a company synonymous with sex work and sexually explicit videos, announced Thursday that it would end graphic content on its platform.
The sea change would occur on October 1, and all previously uploaded porn would have to be removed by users before December 1.
Why? Clearly, the banking institutions that work with companies like OnlyFans are extremely conservative, and are skittish about explicit sex. The excuse eBay used when announcing it was abandoning nudity (unless demonstrably artistic in nature) was that any pornography or explicit content would be hard to vet against revenge porn and use of underage or unwilling models.
Which is garbage. Utter garbage. The solution to combatting abuse is to sidestep all of erotica? This thinking is WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS!?! hysteria to the nth degree, and has no place in a supposedly free society.
How free are you if you aren't free to exploit your own body?
JustForFans is swooping in to save the day ... but wants 30% of your money instead of 20%:
