Is this the final count down for sex workers on OnlyFans?

On the 27th May 2021 BBC news reported findings from their undercover investigation into OnlyFans.

The BBC reported the British subscription site OnlyFans is failing to prevent underage users from selling and appearing in explicit videos, a BBC investigation has found. According to reporter ALEX WILLIAMSON Under-18s have used fake identification to set up accounts, and police say a 14-year-old used a grandmother's passport.

As part of the BBC investigation, they found that one 17-year-old from a suburb in the south-east of England had sold videos of herself masturbating and playing with sex toys, while an under-18 participated in graphic videos hosted on an adult account in Nevada, US, in breach of the company's terms and conditions.

Furthermore, the UK's most senior police officer for child protection also says children are being "exploited" on the platform. Multiple police forces say children have complained about their images being uploaded to the site without consent, and one 17-year-old reported being blackmailed.

"It is increasingly clear that OnlyFans is being used by children," says chief constable Simon Bailey, the UK's child protection lead. The company is not doing enough to put in place the safeguards that prevent children exploiting the opportunity to generate money, but also for children to be exploited."

OnlyFans says its age verification systems go over and above regulatory requirements. Efforts to stop children accessing its site limits the likelihood of them being exposed to blackmail or exploitation, and if it is notified about these behaviours it takes swift action and disables accounts.

The platform took swift action by sending out a blanket verification request for all site users; which includes more than a million "creators" sharing video clips, photos and messages directly with their paying subscribers. OnlyFans required all content creators and users to reverify their pages by uploading ID and a new biometrics face scan to get a new reverified acceptance.

OnlyFans has also requested new up to date model releases for all content starring another person. They have refused to accept the adult industry standard 2257 document which is a legally mandated document that has been written by industry attorneys and been the industry standard for many years. OnlyFan’s is also not accepting old model releases for content that features retired or no longer living or unreachable content creators.

Rumours have indicated that OnlyFans is insisting on these specific types of forms as a result of the MasterCard new compliance policies coming soon. Here is the article I wrote last month about these pending Mastercard changes and how it will affect the adult industry https://smuttyfy.com/read-blog/16_mastercard-policy-change.html

Time is now going to tell the real affects this BBC report will have on OnlyFans and adult content on the site. Many people are questioning how long it will be until OnlyFans removes adult content and porn completely off the platform? Others are saying it's only a matter of time before the site loses Mastercard and Visa as payment processors and many fear the site will be shut down. We really do not know how this is all going to play out. Just stay calm, make sure you verify ASAP and ensure all your documents are in order in case they are ever requested.

I can't say that this is all together surprising. Just from one line of thought, Only Fans is all over the sexual content on Tik Tok, at the least people plugging their Only Fans. In 2020 Tik Tok had a real problem with minors doing overtly sexual behaviors on the app. The issue was prominent enough that they were cracking down on Kink and Sex Educators for mentioning sex organs. Now everyone just speaks in code, and tries to avoid the ban hammer including the kids. It doesn't help that they are drawn to the idea that by shaking their ass a little they can have fans and money. They don't get that there is a hell of a lot more to the sex work industry than that. History has shown that children will find ways to get adult content (in some cases make it) if that is an interest of theirs. As adults we can try and try to stop them. But at the end of the day, we have to realize it's not the site's fault if the children are circumventing the community guidelines, terms and conditions, and in some cases actively committing fraud to do it. I absolutely think that removing proven child content and closing those accounts is necessary. Call it due diligence. Don't think for a second it will fix the problem. Teenagers trying to grow up too fast is a problem going back generations. They'll keep working to circumvent being locked out of adult content. We'll keep changing it. The cycle continues. Sorry for rambling.
