Your Subscription Has Expired.

Only Fans, it is a meme in itself. In such a short space of time it has gone from nothing to everything in the world of a pandemic hit sex worker. Unfortunately, like a lot of platforms this oftentimes shady one has started to ‘drain the swamp’ of undesirables like Me. It is likely to be only a matter of time before they purge their image entirely of those who are seen as ‘obscene’ in the sex industry.

'Let's not forget who made them iconic'

One scroll of the OnlyFans Twitter feed or blog page and you can see the image management being played out. The brand is favouring promotion of it’s fashion and fitness models like Sierra Skye, up and coming singer songwriters as well as established recording artists like Yung Bleu. Of course they are entitled to do so, but please, let’s not forget who made them iconic, and here’s a hint, it wasn’t Beyonce.

As app platforms continue to refuse apps to companies marked as ‘adult‘, and creator of the platform Guy Stokely was quoted by the Economist as being ‘a veteran of the adult entertainment world’. In late 2018 Guy Stokely gave up significant company control and the MyFreeCams adult content platform founder Leonid Radvinsky took 75% company ownership. If the company’s roots are so entangled in sex work, with both Stokely and Radvinsky at the helm, why are so many adult stars being pushed away?

Perhaps this comes down to the company’s quick rise to fame in 2019. The influx of more sex workers came with so many unknowns, how could a platform ever consider that fringe, but entirely valid kinks like scat play and ABDL would be hitting their feeds? Who knows what they could have anticipated, but, it’s there now. Instead of accepting, supporting and helping their creators grow, they are locking down and shutting the gates without warning.

The reasons behind recent account shut downs have been named as breaches of the Terms Of Use. Such a breach could be attributed whole host of innocent mistakes or blatant rule breaks. For example, tweeting a link with an explicit photo while your twitter isn’t marked as ‘sensitive content’ goes against the OnlyFans Terms of Use as does posting something that is considered and reported as ‘Obscene’ by a user.

The main concern, as I hear it, is the sites lack of transparency, and muddy interpretations of the terms of use. Of course terms of use keep us all safe, however uncertainly on the interpretations is causing anxiety and worry during an already pandemic-panicked time. Communication and clarity would have been easy in preventing sex workers from being left out in the cold, yet the site has failed us all.  Let’s not forget, adult platforms Clips4Sale and AVN (pictured below) have compiled comprehensive lists of content restrictions and are consistent in their support of bettering their high earners, and owning their pride in supporting online adult entertainers.

'if sex workers built OnlyFans, they can tear it down'

Rolling Stone had it right when they published this article: Sex Workers Built OnlyFans. Now They Say They’re Getting Kicked Off

For a company making millions off the back of sex workers and yet providing such uncertainty, I suggest the working women of sex industry vote with their beautiful feet and walk away with their heads held high. If sex workers built OnlyFans, they can tear it down. This will not be easy, and will take a group of powerful influential women to do, so its a good job I know a fair few of them! However as strong, capable and resilient as sex workers are they cannot do this alone.

The generosity of you, the subscriber and tipper who has supported them is also being taken for granted. 20% of what you spend is being syphoned off to fund a platform that will be unlikely to hold your favourite creator in the months and years to come. 

Personally, I have opened an AVN account. Their clearer stance on banned content and ability to contact them and get an actual response is reassuring.

Personally AVN is my new platform of choice. I’ll be leaving my OnlyFans running for anyone who wants to see the content archive but future love, care and attention will be going towards my AVN. Anyone who is currently subscribed to my OnlyFans will be given free access for the first month while things transition over. 

If you’re a sex worker and you’re also migrating away from OnlyFans and you’d like some help setting up an AVN account please signup with my referral link here and i can help you get set up.

Back to BDSM basics

The BDSM community can seem alien when you first encounter it, but all it takes is a little patience and some basic research. This is not the Illuminati, or the Masons – there is no ritual, human sacrifice or handshake to get in – you just have to learn how to interact with people all over again.

“I don’t have any limits, Miss!”

A statement that genuinely makes my full body shudder. You think you’re telling me “I’m the biggest, bravest submissive you’ve ever met!”. When in reality it reads as “I haven’t thought this through enough” or worse “I don’t care about myself”.

Why Chastity is Freedom (for you!)

There is no doubt about it, sexual desires are distracting. At the worst possible time, that little prick shaped bit of your brain pings and there you are, off in fantasy land with last month’s paperwork piling up beside you in the home office while you once again wander off to your favourite subscription site with your hand in your pants. Sufficiently jerked off, you wash your hands and wipe the sweat from your brow before logging in to that Zoom call.

3 in the bed. You, your partner & the kinks you won’t tell them about!

No matter what stage of your relationship, dating, long-term or fully committed, sharing your innermost taboo secrets with someone will seem like the most nerve-wracking thing in the world. But what if I told you the conversation could open you up to experiences you previously thought weren’t possible? What if the conversation led to foreplay or better yet raw, red-hot kinky sex!
