After receiving thunderous outcry and pressure from sex workers, consumers, and political commentators, OnlyFans reversed its recent prohibition of sexually explicit content on its platform.

“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,” the company wrote on Twitter. “OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.”

Less than a week ago, the subscription service, which allows influencers to charge users monthly fees for access to their brands, many of which are sexually suggestive in nature, announced a ban on pornographic material for its gig economy employees. The ban was supposed to be effective October 1st. OnlyFans skyrocketed in popularity during the quarantine period of the pandemic, when people were sheltering in their homes with few options for recreational activity.

As reasoning for the policy change, the London-based company stated that it was to “to comply with the request of our banking partners and payment providers.” OnlyFans leaders, who are seeking funding at a valuation over $1 billion, also feared explicit content could deter potential investors and therefore stifle the platform’s growth.
