OnlyFans is giving performers and observers serious whiplash. At first, the company banned sexually explicit content, although it said nudity would still be allowed. Less than a week later, it overturned the ban, saying it received “assurances” from banking partners that it can support payments for all types of creators.
On one hand, the back and forth over the past week or so can be interpreted as a master class in garnering attention. OnlyFans generated tons of headlines, stuck it (verbally) to big banks, and apparently is back in the business that’s making it so much money.
