OnlyFans Reverses Pornography Ban Plans
The subscription-based social platform is taking a step back on its policy change after “securing assurances” to support its creator community.
“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,” read a statement shared on Twitter.
Just last week, the company announced a ban on sexually-explicit conduct “in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform”. Keen on attracting investors with a valuation of $1 billion, OnlyFans wanted “to comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers,” according to Variety.
OnlyFans, which has 130 million users, earns over $2 billion in revenue of which 80% is shared across its 1.5 million creators.
An official communication to creators will be emailed shortly.

Mayday Trailer Released
Magnolia Pictures has released the official trailer for Mayday. Directed by Karen Cinorre, the drama film follows the story of Ana (Grace Van Patten), who finds herself transported to a dreamlike and dangerous coastline.
Once there, she joins a female army engaged in a never-ending war where the women lure men to their deaths with radio signals, like 20th century sirens. Though Ana finds strength in this exhilarating world, she comes to realize she is not the killer they want her to be.
Mayday arrives in theatres October 1st. Check out the trailer and official poster below.
