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.
'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 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. For any other help and advice when it comes to the dark art of online content selling please do visit Intellect Models.

Thrills can come from every avenue of our dark minds. Sexual tendencies aren’t linear and what you considered entirely off limits at first may be your current hottest high. This goes for exposure, ruination, home wreaking and blackmail too. Some clients invite this, they crave it.
