Days after causing an uproar when it announced new terms of service that would prevent sexually explicit content, Only Fans retracted it all on Twitter.
Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard.
We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change.
OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.

The damage may already be done, however—many creators already migrated their content to another platform, while the whiplash-inducing backtrack has left many others questioning Only Fans’ commitment to its sexually explicit content.
Whether subscribers will take the step of following their favorites somewhere else or if they’re brand-loyal to the platform remains to be seen. But one thing is clear: There’s never any harm in diversifying where you find and post content.
