A growing number of OnlyFans creators are expressing their frustration and anger online due to the alleged frequent deletion of their content, leading to concerns of a potential mass exodus from the platform. These creators, including individuals like Rowan Odubhain and Aaliyah Yasin, who have a substantial following, claim that their posts are being removed from OnlyFans without violating any of the platform’s terms of service.
In response to this treatment, many creators are seeking alternative platforms to host their content, with OKfans.com emerging as a popular choice. One creator expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter, highlighting that their video was removed by OnlyFans despite not violating any terms. They criticized the lack of specific information provided by the platform’s compliance team and called for better communication and transparency.
Other creators, such as Rae and ‘Bungabooty’, also voiced their disappointment and frustration with OnlyFans, stating that their videos were being removed without valid reasons. Aaliyah Yasin even reached out to OnlyFans CEO Amrapali Gan, claiming to be facing discrimination as a Pakistani Muslim creator. She accused the moderation team of bullying and discrimination and expressed her disappointment with the lack of support from the customer service team.
Amid the backlash from creators, some have chosen to seek a more permanent solution by establishing themselves on alternative platforms. Arian Demnika, the founder of Okfans, has witnessed a significant increase in sign-ups over the past year. Okfans.com is designed specifically for adult content creators and consumers and promises not to ban sexual content, in contrast to other platforms like OnlyFans that have implemented restrictions.
Arian acknowledges the complexities surrounding the regulation of adult content on social media platforms but assures creators that their content will never be removed or their accounts banned on Okfans. The platform offers similar features to other content subscription services, including messaging, live streaming, custom subscription options, and analytics to track content performance and audience engagement. It has attracted top creators who now earn substantial monthly incomes ranging from £8,000 to £40,000 ($10,000 to $50,000 USD).
While Arian focuses on enhancing Okfans and providing new tools for creators to connect with their fans, he recognizes the potential consequences that OnlyFans’ restrictions may have on creators’ lives. The ban on sexually explicit content could result in a loss of revenue for creators and a need to find alternative platforms for monetization. Additionally, consumers may lose access to content they enjoy and are willing to pay for, impacting the overall availability and diversity of adult content.
The situation raises concerns about the livelihoods of creators and the potential impact on the adult content industry as a whole. As creators explore alternative platforms like Okfans, the landscape of adult content subscription services continues to evolve.
