In the near future, you will most likely be taught how to cook and garden on OnlyFans.
OnlyFans executives have outlined plans to become more transparent and include richer content as the UK (where they are based) is finalizing new internet safety laws.
“Amazon sells books about sex and gardening. Nobody calls Amazon an adult bookstore, right? Our content creators provide content on everything from gardening to gardening, yet for some reason OnlyFans is branded as ‘a site with adult content,'” Keily Blair, chief strategy officer OnlyFans said.
Blair said the online platform is trying to get rid of the 18+ mark by increasing communication with journalists, banking partners, regulators
Many politicians in the UK have expressed concern that platforms like OnlyFans lack control and could harm children. They plan to introduce an Online Safety Bill to improve this situation.
According to OnlyFans’ transparency report, the company has removed more than a million posts for policy violations since July 2021 and takes down hundreds of accounts every month.
OnlyFans employs 1,000 people to control content safety. They also hire 40-50 more seasonal workers per month. These people are responsible for moderating 20 million monthly posts from over 2 million creators. Each post is reviewed within 24 hours of posting, after being processed by a word and image recognition system.
Founded in 2016, OnlyFans is based out of a small office in London’s Soho neighborhood – what was once the city’s red light district. The platform has been incredibly profitable during the Covid-19 pandemic with a pre-tax profit of $433 million in fiscal year 2020.
OnlyFans subscribers pay content creators a monthly fee for access to photos, videos, and more, and the company charges a 20% fee. OnlyFans is trying to expand content beyond 18+, such as cooking, music, gym, etc.
At the present time, if you search for the keyword “gardening”, OnlyFans will bring up a video of a woman giving tips on growing pumpkins. A search for “cooking” also yields a few results, but certainly not too many.
