But it's also the one the majority owner (also a huge pornographer) needs to cash out bigly, so that's where they're going.

So September is going to be a fun month!

In other news, OnlyFans to soon go out of business.
 
2021-08-19 2:51:10 PM  
Wait - I thought that WAS their business?

What in the world is it for then?

So are the banks being prudes or is this organic from the company itself? Because there's a lot of money in making bananas stand, eh.

Would you bother to make new content if you knew it wouldn't stay up long enough? Every new video is going to be 5 seconds long, just text saying "Come find me on the NEW platform 'OnlyTissues' link ..."

I can imagine that there are many people looking at different platforms right now, nary a day goes by where we don't get a, "I was a sheep herder in Afghanistan making $4 a year and now I make a gazillion every month on OnlyFans!" story.

Yeah if someone wants to step in and fill the hole they can make a lot of money. Wait, are we not doing phrasing anymore?

Given how upset Fark was a couple days ago that some woman was fired for moonlighting as a stripper on OnlyFans, I can only imagine this as a massive win for everything involved.

There is nothing - absolutely nothing - that prevents you from registering iamahornyhotnursereadytoplay.xxx and do all your dirty shiate there. OnlyFans was just the pimp in the process. Right, right?!?!?!

Well talk about shooting themselves in the dick.

I never understood how they competed with the billion hours of free porn out there anyway.

Ive paid for more water than porn.
 
2021-08-19 2:57:16 PM  
Hmm, I wonder if they have any plans to find a clever new name to rebrand and try to get the stink of all of that porn off of them. It's got to be clever and still give off a similar vibe but be less porny. Probably calling it something like Patreon would be brilliant.
 
2021-08-19 2:57:21 PM  
😂
Their pushing them to a new platform which will pay less/differently or some other contract changes.
 
2021-08-19 2:57:37 PM  
The only legitimate reason I can come up with is that they're afraid of their liability if there are underage sex videos, or people being forced, or everything else to do with that.

Depends on the definition of explicit.

Explicit defined by my grandmother might be a bit different from a ute who had a friend suggest they watch 2 Girls 1 Cup and 14 Dildos in their early teens.

Applying the the Abbott/DeSantis model of pandemic mitigation to one's revenue seems farking stupid

I can't imagine it's the banks. Banks happily and unquestioningly take billions from Colombian "toothpaste" factories.  It's gotta be some Xtian on the board of directors

/next week: Onlyfan director spotted with Gaetz

Never go full tumblr.

"According to OnlyFans, creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity "as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy." The site's terms currently allow nudity except in the case of content featuring public nudity recorded in or broadcast from a jurisdiction where public nudity is illegal."

They are offering the clarification that nude photos and videos are still allowed, just no "sexually explicit" material, whatever that means.

Also see some claiming that Bloomberg is being deceptive and they are referring to a new TV program they are launching not the site proper, but that doesn't seem reflected in the language they are sharing.

Solty Dog: The job market is about to be flooded.


What kind of jobs?
 
2021-08-19 2:59:41 PM  
By "explicit" do they mean ban X-rated, while R-rated nudies are still allowed? Not clear.

Following the Tumblr business model is sure to go well.
 
2021-08-19 2:59:44 PM  
Probably a move by the GOP to get those attractive girls out of the porn business and back to secretarial/intern/waitress work for minimum wage as it should be.

Salmon: I can imagine that there are many people looking at different platforms right now, nary a day goes by where we don't get a, "I was a sheep herder in Afghanistan making $4 a year and now I make a gazillion every month on OnlyFans!" story.


Running an OnlyFans in Afghanistan sounds like a quick way to get stoned to death in the street now.

No more videos of vapid tattooed women giving inane options on Veganism while they plunge a dildo in and out of their butthole? Oh no what are we ever going to do?

Where exactly is the revenue growth going to come from without porn?

So what I'm hearing is that there's a new opening to be the premier fan-interaction pornography portal on the internet. I think all the cam models are wondering who will step up and fill that opening. The service provider opening, that is.
 
2021-08-19 3:01:03 PM  
And OnlyFans is trying to raise money from outside investors at a valuation of more than $1 billion. The company handled more than $2 billion in sales last year, and is on pace to more than double that this year. It keeps 20% of that figure.

If they're on course to make over 800 million next year, why do they need investors?

It's getting pretty scammy and sex-trafficky. They probably see a legal headache coming.
 
2021-08-19 3:02:52 PM  
On top of everything else, now they'll be in direct competition with Patreon, probably as the weaker of the two choices.
