Short, but a hell of a ride
While you still try to wrap your head around the fact that there are people still paying for porn in 2021, OnlyFans announced that it will no longer allow “sexually explicit” content on its platform last week.
The same sexually explicit content that raked in over two billion dollars last year, of which the platform gets a 20% cut.
In case your wildest dreams never led you beyond PornHub, OnlyFans is a platform allowing people to sell dirty pics of themselves to other people through subscriptions. Joking, it’s not only dirty pics, but mostly dirty pics.
Since its launch in 2016, 1 million creators, mostly sex workers, have flocked to the platform, and that’s the only reason why we’re talking about OnlyFans today.
Then last week, payment processors got scared they may go to hell for supporting such indecency and forced the platform to make amend. At least someone saw that coming: “OnlyFans is not going to last, but it is a hell of a ride,” Kimberly Kane, an OnlyFans creator, said in an interview back in May.
Woah! I just had a vision:
New logo, website redesign, etc. It will help them sweep their indecorous past under the carpet as they try to attract a new crowd. But, one thing is for sure, logos are not better than sex. Believe me, I’m a logo designer. So they better pull something interesting out of their … hat to go with it.
Crypto’s future starts today
Maybe this is the moment we get tired of being pushed around by the banks and start a financial revolution led by sex workers. This may not be how you imagined crypto taking over, but many people want to buy sex, and sex workers need a way to cash in.
