OnlyFans bans content creators from sharing public sex pics and videos

OnlyFans has informed its content creators that they can no longer share images and videos featuring sex in "public places".

The ban is the latest to be implemented onto the subscription-based platform's already lengthy list of content it forbids.

The terms of use for OnlyFans now state that sexually explicit content that "was recorded in or is being broadcast from a public place where members of the public are reasonably likely to see the activities being illustrated" is no longer allowed.

As of archives saved in mid-February, no mention of public places was included in OnlyFans' Terms of Use – meaning this change is a new addition within the last month.

Adult content creator Aspen Eden first noticed the change when OnlyFans sent her an email recently, saying her outdoor content was in violation of the terms and was taken down, without warning.

The email said that even areas that are far away from populated places is considered public nudity, and that nude photos outside are only allowed "if it is a private territory only," such as a private beach.

However, creators must provide proof of ownership or permission from the owner to post those images to OnlyFans.

Eden told Vice that since most of her content is shot outdoors, she'll have to find a new platform for that work.

She commented: "My niche and content has always been centred around outdoor and nature content, explicit or not.

"All of my content was either created on private property, secluded areas deep in the mountains/deserts or national forests.

"None of my content was ever made in a public area with people around or the chance of people walking up. No parking lots, busy streets or public parks.

"I’ve never and would never want to put someone in a situation where they haven’t consented to seeing me nude."

Eden said she thinks that OnlyFans' terms of service, which change often, are due to payment processors' strict rules that are biased against the adult industry.

Many adult content sites have similar rules that may seem subjective, but are guided by the banks that do business with those platforms.

Adult performer Cam Damage recently asked OnlyFans support for a complete list of banned phrases and types of content.

The full list included things that are clearly stated in the terms of use, but many more that aren't, including knife play, bruises, spanks and pegging (unless they're not "violent," then they're allowed — but examples of a "violent" pegging or spanking aren't given).

Anything baby-themed like bottles, diapers, or baby powder, are also banned, as are ashing cigars onto body parts, promoting or selling alcohol (what constitutes "promoting" isn't defined), and bondage—although some bondage is allowed, if "there are no signs of violence or suffering."

Talking about the new rule on public sex, Damage said: "My feelings on the 'public place' ban are similar to my feelings as they relate to all other banned things.

"I understand bans are put in place to protect sites in accordance with rules set forth by payment processors. I don’t take issue there. It is what it is.

"Sadly for porn to exist at all on the internet, rules will be in place—and we have no choice but to adhere."
