OnlyFans is reportedly cracking down on “sexually explicit conduct” from October – and some of its creators feel “betrayed”.
While the company hasn’t shared what its updated policy is going to entail, it’s expected to allow nudity to continue.
It’s the influencers who make pornographic content who are likely to be impacted by the rule change.
One of the women is Lena Nersesian – a creator based in California, US, who goes by the name Lena the Plug.
She spoke to Philip DeFranco about feeling let down by the company.
Lena has concerns for the people on her payroll too – as those helping her produce OnlyFans content could soon be out of a job.
Lena said: “I guess I really shouldn’t even be surprised because I’ve been treated terribly by almost every platform – whether or not I’m breaking the rules.
“But this just kind of felt like the one really safe place.
“This is the place that is accepting me, this is the place that’s inviting me and telling me to make this content and collab with all the other creators.
“I mean, it’s not like it’s tomorrow but it’s not that long from now and it’s October…
“No platforms care about sex workers”.
Lena is also disappointed by the rumoured OnlyFans policy changes because sex workers have been pivotal in catapulting the company to success.
She said: “I do feel completely betrayed.
“I feel we completely built the platform and we made it big.
“But then it became more mainstream and they got loads more influencers – like Corinna Kopf…
“And now it’s like ‘we don’t need the girls that helped us get here and we’re going to try and get more celebrity type people instead who will never actually cross into the sexual activity’.”
Lena added: “It really sucks because I treat this like a business and I have a team of people to support.
“I’m their livelihood. They take the photos, they schedule out the content.
“So if I don’t have an income, they don’t have an income…
“Someone is taking my job from me, essentially.”
While Lena is going to continue posting content on OnlyFans, she plans to remove any porn she has on the subscription site.
In the future, she’s open to joining another platform that’s more welcoming to sex workers.
She believes others will be joining her by signing up to other sites too.
Lena added: “My plan as of now is to delete all the content that would break the rules, I assume, and leave all the nude photos on there.
“I do have a huge following on there so why would I want to stop posting content on there.
“But I have already been researching as there are other companies out there that have the same sort of models…
“There are other platforms out there that will be welcoming the sex workers, so I will be joining them.
“And I bet all the other girls will be doing the exact same thing.”
