OnlyFans has abandoned its plan to ban all pornographic content from the popular app after a furious backlash.

The adult content subscription service announced last week that it intends to block creators from posting sexually explicit content on its website.

Creators would still be allowed to post nude photos and videos, as long as they follow OnlyFans’ new policy.

The announcement has aroused the ire of sex workers who rely on the platform as a vital source of income.

But in a massive U-turn, OnlyFans has now confirmed that the proposed policy changes will be scrapped.

A spokesperson for the platform tweeted: “Thank you all for making your voice heard.

“We have secured the assurances necessary to support our diverse designer community and have put the policy change on hold on October 1.

“OnlyFans is all about inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.

“An official communication to the creators will be sent by email shortly.”

The popularity of the adult content platform has grown significantly since its launch in 2016.

Content creators make money from users who subscribe to their exclusive content feed, which includes images and videos.

Scores of people signed up to the platform at the height of the coronavirus pandemic last year – with sex workers, influencers and musicians offering exclusive content to fans.

Over 130 million people now use OnlyFans, of which around two million provide content to the service.

Bella Thorne, Cardi B and Tyga are among the famous names who offer exclusive photos and videos on the platform.
