"OnlyFans faced intense backlash from its users over a decision to ban pornography"

I assume this was a "New Coke" type marketing scheme?

At least until JD Vance gets it outlawed.

I cannot think of one person on this planet I would actually pay to see get naked/do porn.

There are some celebrities that I think are gorgeous, but still not worth shelling out $ to see.

It'll do fine until oil hits the anus.

Should have just listed those you wouldn't pay for. It would have been a much shorter list.

I know this has been true historically....but I can't imagine being tight on cash and deciding to visit OnlyFans.

When you've got money and don't care much about it...sure. whatever. But what a ridiculously easy thing to cut out and save money on.

Unlike most of history, you can still get an unfathomable amount of free porn.

Fark_Guy_Rob: I know this has been true historically....but I can't imagine being tight on cash and deciding to visit OnlyFans.



I help people make quality content for Onlyfans. "Quality" is relative, but I have the lights, cameras and other associated gear and knowledge to make things that are several steps up from the "bathroom selfies on an iphone"-level that seems to be every baby account's starting point. Almost all the people I deal with are top 10% accounts, which means they have monthly revenues in excess of over $1000/month.

The couple models I've talked to in the last week have both said they've lost around 25% of their subscribers in the last month. We have a group chat set up and a lot of the talk right now is focused on retaining subscriptions instead of the usual stuff about marketing and people to avoid dealing with. It's a real problem. That means everyone is running sales to maintain subs. Better to keep something coming in than to lose even more.

As for why people might not want to quit their Onlyfans habit: nontechnical people who don't know how to save things will lose access to anything they paid to unlock if they unsubscribe from a profile with locked content.  OF blocks downloads from vanilla desktop and most mobile browsers, although not mobile Firefox, and the fix on desktop Firefox is just a teensy little about:config edit. My roommate made a bunch of content with a top-500 Onlyfans model; even though she hasn't posted anything on her own account in about a year, she still has about 60 active subs, people who either don't care that they're still paying $10/month or are afraid of losing the videos they paid for. She hasn't lost a subscriber in six months.

OF is also direct support for somebody you presumably have some kind of social or parasocial association with. Most of my friends are strippers who work in Chicago, northwest Indiana or Southwest Michigan. The people who subscribe to their accounts mostly did it because they've met the creator in person and chose to support them in that way. OF actually takes less of their money than the clubs do, so it's a better deal in that way as well. It's not just that you're paying to see somebody naked. You're also helping to make sure they can keep their bills paid. Maybe you care about that and maybe you don't, but OF got a lot of people through the pandemic and probably through the latest recession.

That is one of those accounts that will bite you in the ass.
 
2022-06-07 2:32:39 PM  
I guess I'm the only person who hasn't got an OnlyFans account and never accesed the site. Pretty soon their entire business model will switch to finding a way to get me to sign on. And then, my plan will be complete. Muahahahahahaahhahahaahahaaaaa

There has been free porn since Zog first      documented his furry addiction.

Now, we need to commoditize sex acts and create derivative contracts we can buy and sell on an open market. Rather than buying a single BJ from a meth head behind the Red Lobster dumpster, you could buy an options contract that gives you the right, but not the obligation, to buy 100 BJs at a given strike price. This is the idea that could save your 401(k).

I'm sorry, but your top 20 doesn't contain Natalie Dormer. My days of not taking your seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

I think they're competing not so much with online porn but with strip clubs. The people paying for OnlyFans believe that the performances are just for them.

Arkanaut: The people paying for OnlyFans believe that the performances are just for them.


Small and mid-size creators absolutely will make content that is unique to a single subscriber, although from what I know about the very largest creator account I know in real life, you're pretty unlikely to get her actual attention for anything less than $1000. She has five assistants working 30 hours a week who are either answering messages and sending out purchased content, pretending to be her on burner phones or OF chats and otherwise helping with back-end stuff like cataloging photos and grouping them in to thematic sets. I'm not exactly sure how much money she's making every month but I have seen the house she bought with her earnings. She's in the seven-digits annually club for sure.

Anyway, some creators will do personalized content for as little as $25. Anybody who has their act together will have a prepaid phone for private texting or voice calls, snapchat or whatever else they can sell. 5 minutes of video chat for $30 is decent money for a lot of smaller creators.

Also, people who request custom content will sometimes let that content be released to other subscribers. Sometimes that's part of the negotiation. Sometimes people want to use real names or something and real contacts get involved. It's a weird world.

But don't think that it's impossible to get something unique, because it's definitely not.

I find myself having to teach a lot of people who may only have a phone how to handle the creator side of Onlyfans. I should probably make an E-book or something while it's still useful knowledge.

That was an incredibly informative reply. Thank you

Sadly not true for my porn mag collection.  Apparently buyers only want "Mint" condition items.

Maybe create a onlyfans account to teach other onlyfans account subscribers how to make money and grow their brand....

I actually do have a bunch of text posts on my account. Anyone with an account can post stuff. A friend of mine also made one to show off his ventriloquism, just to be funny. OF is only MOSTLY nudity.
