The term celebrity in this case, is also misleading.

Desperate men will still pay, but this might cut down on the insanity slightly.  Strippers are strippers, they'll find an angle to keep the tips coming.

Of course, they'll pay. Onlyfans is actually LIMITING how much the "strippers" can charge. That's the main issue.

You may have heard the news that Bella Thorne, the 22-year-old Disney star who once starred in Alvin and the Chipmunks, joined OnlyFans last week.

I've never been more please to be out of the loop.

On the one hand, it makes no sense.

On the other, it makes way more sense than spending hundreds of dollars on outfits for your video game avatar or pay-to-win game "upgrades".

I've never done it and have no intention of doing so, but I'm also not going to pretend I'm not a couple dark nights of the soul away from paying a friendly young woman to acknowledge my existence. There but for the grace of god, etc., etc.

People that normally would be at the nudie bar.

For a certain segment, it was a cool gig and a reasonably safe way to "enjoy" the creators. But I have a hard and fast rule not to pay for porn. So, I haven't actually seen any of the profiles.

More importantly, they pointed out, the changes meant a reduction in income, and a delay in payments for many sex workers on the site. "Imagine suddenly going from a weekly paycheck to a monthly paycheck," tweeted OnlyFans creator Erika Heidewald. "People have bills to pay. Kids to feed. Many people, including content creators and sex workers, live paycheck to paycheck. How are they going to pay their bills this month?"

Well did you have a contract with OnlyFans that covered when you got paid or how much you could charge for your content?  If not then you can not complain.  Does it suck?  Sure.  Is it OnlyFan's platform/site to run how it's best for them financially or otherwise?  Yup.
 
2020-09-01 11:45:13 AM  
Sex workers should unite and refuse to fark, blow, span, or pee on Hollywood actors, directors, executives and writers as long as Bella Thorne has a job. This is the Lysistrata reboot we've been waiting for.

When I was younger I spent more than either of those on a saturday night bar crawl.  I'd say the only thing I got out of it was the memories, but half the time I didn't even have those.  So...who cares?  Neither are any better or worse uses of money than sports tickets, or a few rounds of beer and darts, or any number of other things.
 
2020-09-01 11:48:36 AM  
If you, like me, think that sex workers are actually people, that sex is a legitimate way to make a living (assuming adult consensuality and lack of exploitation), and that this website was a way for sex workers to finally be able to be independent, keep most of the revenue, and avoid most of the downsides, this is a sad story.
This entitled biatch ruined a lot of other peoples' lives with her grift. That's not amusing.
 
2020-09-01 11:48:38 AM  
Well that's a whole lot of bullshiat.  People putting content out on the site should be able to charge whatever the hell they want.  If they advertise nudes and don't deliver, then kick them off.  And what the hell makes the site think they can keep the money for a month?  Who wouldn't be pissed about this?

Obviously.  The strippers can't target a small number of big spenders for huge tips, so now they have to keep large numbers of smaller tips coming to make up the difference.

2020-09-01 11:51:47 AM  
Presumably there's two or three OnlyFans competitors (read: copycats) who've been waiting for a way to break into the spotlight and siphon off users (read: models) from OF. This is their chance, and the market will sort itself out.

2020-09-01 11:53:22 AM  
This doesn't affect most OF workers in any real way.  How many of them were able to charge $50 a month?  Most of the ones I see advertising on Reddit are <$10/mo.  And going from weekly to monthly payments doesn't affect their earnings at all.  They just need to budget better.

Really?  You think that tossing a little money someones way because you enjoy what they put out there makes them pathetic?  It's not like they give a drunk $5 a month to access a free website.

"We're going to hold on to the money you already earned for an extra 21 days because someone elsemade us issue thousands of dollars in refunds. But that's okay -- it's your own fault for living paycheck-to-paycheck."

You can get nude pictures via the internet now? I'm not sure that'll catch on.

The onlyfans model is broken because it's easy enough to cap the content and share it for free. Some people want custom vids or pics so they're willing to pay but if you just want to see a model's butthole you can just search for her handle and find images.

Don't worry.  I'm sure they'll offer an option where if you give them 2% more, they'll give you the money whenever you want.

Hearing the complaints it sounds like a 100 year tradition is being unfairly expunged. OnlyFans started in 2016. they're lucky it survived and didn't just shut down at some point.

And what if all the guys addicted to porn, that the world despises so much, all got over their porn addiction?

Supposedly that's what we want from these men--that they grow up and learn to respect woman and stop consuming porn. If the social arbiters got their wish, the camgirls would soon have no income at all. We're supposed to feel sorry for their current situation, where cam-girling is an actual career option, while at the same time wishing that option were obliterrated.

Sounds like an excellent time to start up a directly competing site that offers the exact same functionality, undercuts slightly on price, and doesn't do stupid, self-defeating shiat like this in response to a single person scamming customers.

Meh. Amazon caps ebooks at $9.99 and holds author money for 60 days.

Probably to factor in the customer return window.

Before you get mad at women for making money selling their nudes online, consider  that most sex workers aren't in the industry by choice but by circumstance and necessity, and that certain men are already making huge bank off exploiting women for porn. The reason you guys have so much FREE porn to jerk yer yerkin to is cos people DO pay for this stuff. Pornhub ain't a charity. That there are women profitting from porn shouldn't be such a concern, especially considering wild successes for individual women like Thorne are exceedingly rare compared to the guys making money on content you can't even be sure was posted with consent of all involved parties.

Over the last like, five years or so? International laws have been changing in ways that specifically target sex workers on the internet. OF is probably one of the safer ways to participate in this industry, so a change that pretty drastically reduces the amount a person can charge for their own images and moves you from a weekly paycheck to monthly paycheck is significant for the folks who are working just to scrape by. Sex workers are mad because a woman who did not have a financial need to participate in sex work enriched herself to the tune of a million dollars at the expense of everyone else, especially those who need this work to keep afloat.

Why the scare quotes on content creators, subby? Normal people on OnlyFans create content, period, end of story. Implying that the work of these women isn't real content or that they aren't doing real work because it is sex work is just misogyny. Calling people who pay for content they like from people they want to support simps and incels is abusive bullshiat, and in the case of 'incel' entirely the opposite. The real incels are the guys calling these women whores and scoffing about why you would pay for 'something you can get for free.'

Bella Thorne came in, play-acted what these women do for a living, then made bank with a bait and switch. She advertised this grift on her Instagram account, among other places, which would and has gotten any other of the women on OnlyFans and instant Instagram ban for TOS violation. But because she is famous or something, Instagram declined to ban her and allowed her the free advertisement. fark her and her BS.
