You may have heard a lot of chatter about the website OnlyFans over the past week or so.
First, it was related to how OnlyFans was dropping what many have thought of as its main attraction: sexually explicit content. Now, in what appears to be an epic flip-flop, the company is reversing that ban.
Tech expert Omar Gallaga has the lowdown on the company, and it’s shifting rules.
“There is a large contingent of sex workers who are using the platform to provide content to their fans,” Gallaga told Texas Standard. “And the CEO of the company, Tim Stokely, announced that in October they were going to start kind of clamping down on that; they were going to continue to allow nudity. But anything kind of beyond that, they were looking to crack down on.”
What you’ll hear in this interview
– What Stokely said was behind the move to ban explicit content.
– Why the company decided to backtrack on that decision.
– How the ban, then reversal, may affect the company long term.
