According to Variety, the company is making the change to “comply with the requests of our banking and payout partners.”

Effective Oct. 1, 2021, “OnlyFans will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually explicit conduct,” the company said in a statement. “In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.”

The site will continue to allow creators to post content with nudity as long as it is “consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy,” Variety reported.
