Full story: OnlyFans Censorship...OnlyFans moves away from adult content
Thai OnlyFans creators are sweating right now due to a miserable police clamp down on them for making explicit content.

Nong Khai Nao (Miss Bad Egg), the most well-known of Thai creators, was arrested on Monday night along with her boyfriend. Nong Khai Nao allegedly raked in, at her peak, nearly B1 million in three months, but has now quit OnlyFans to focus on her YouTube content instead.

Their arrest has sparked a lot of debate regarding Thai police priorities for there are more pressing issues and crimes out there, and whether creating X-rated content on OnlyFans should be considered illegal, to begin with.

Lt Gen Kanchai Khlaikhleung, chief of the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau, said that he is unfazed by the criticism as his bureau is only doing its duty.In order to uphold the good morale of Thailand and out of concern on its impact on the younger generations, he said that he couldn't turn a blind eye.

 

 

Updated: Trashed livelihoods...

Moral bankers use onerous new rules to put a stop to sex workers making a living via OnlyFans

Full story: OnlyFans Censorship...OnlyFans moves away from adult content
It's not just state censorship rules that control adult companies, but there are also rules imposed by other organisations for their own reasons. And in this case it is the banking industry that is controlling adult content.

Video sharing site OnlyFans, best known for its creators' adult videos and photos, will prohibit sexually explicit content starting October 1st. The company says it is making the changes because of pressure from its banking and payment providers.

OnlyFans said in a statement emailed to The Verge:

In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of our platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines,.

Creators on the platform will still be allowed to post nude images as long as they comply with the site's acceptable use policy. More information will be available in the coming days. OnlyFans remains committed to the highest levels of safety and content moderation of any social platform.

 

Update: Will OnlyFans censorship pave the way for Bitcoin to become the coinage of online porn

22nd August 2021. See article from newsweek.com

OnlyFans has been effectively banned by moralistic bankers, so will this in turn be an opportunity for the crypto industry to capitalise by offering platforms that are not held to ransom by financial institutions.

Crypto analyst Christina Rud told Newsweek:

What's essentially happening here is that you have payment providers deciding what's right or wrong which is really scary, and definitely not the kind of society that would champion democratic values.

Rud explains that using blockchain-enabled technology is the way forward for the porn industry because content cannot be censored. The technology also has no central entity controlling it. Therefore crypto-led pornography platforms would be immune to the moralizing whims of boardroom politics.

The porn industry has already begun embracing the blockchain. Pornhub first announced it would be accepting cryptocurrency payments in 2018. Then, after it was axed by Visa and Mastercard in 2020, the platform moved to only accepting cryptocurrency for its premium service.

 

Update: Naming names of the disgraceful bankers

24th August 2021. See article from variety.com

The OnlyFans CEO names names of the disgraceful bankers that sought to impose their morality on their customers and have trashed the livelihoods of so many.

OnlyFans founder and chief exec Tim Stokely placed the blame for the U.K. company's move to ban sexually explicit content as of Oct. 1, announced last week, on several major banks in an interview with the Financial Times published Tuesday. He said:

The change in policy, we had no choice -- the short answer is banks, Stokely said. Banks including JP Morgan Chase, Bank of New York Mellon and the U.K.'s Metro Bank cite reputational risk and refuse our business

We pay over 1 million creators over $300 million every month, and making sure that these funds get to creators involves using the banking sector. Because several banks have cut off OnlyFans from making wire transfers, that has made it difficult to pay creators, he said.

Stokely also said that OnlyFans is fully compliant with new Mastercard rules, so that had no bearing on the decision to ban porn. He also said the change was not made to appease investors.

 

Update: A change of heart

24th August 2021. See article from tmz.com

OnlyFans has reversed course and will no longer be banning sexually explicit content on its platform starting October 1 ... after outcry from its creators and the general public. OnlyFans announced:

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.

As we reported ... OnlyFans blamed its planned porn ban on conflicts with banking partners and payout providers -- suggesting they'd no longer do business with the site due to the sexual content -- but it seems those issues have been resolved.

 

Update: Mastercard censorship rules

28th August 2021. See article from mastercard.com

Mastercard updated its censorship rules for their customers in April 2021. Mastercard wrote:

Enhancing requirements for adult content, preventing anonymous content

This month, we are extending our existing Specialty Merchant Registration requirements. The banks that connect merchants to our network will need to certify that the seller of adult content has effective controls in place to monitor, block and, where necessary, take down all illegal content.

Now, our requirements address the risks associated with this activity. And that starts with strong content control measures and clear, unambiguous and documented consent.

Other updated requirements include:

  • Documented age and identity verification for all people depicted and those uploading the content

  • Content review process prior to publication

  • Complaint resolution process that addresses illegal or nonconsensual content within seven business days

  • Appeals process allowing for any person depicted to request their content be removed

 

Update: A good summary from the Guardian

28th August 2021. See article from theguardian.com

Why OnlyFans had second thoughts on banning sexually explicit content. Homegrown adult content site announced last week it was suspending adult content, only to quickly change its mind

 

 

Obituary: Victoria Paris...

Link Here15th August 2021
AVN Hall of Fame porn performer Victoria Paris died Tuesday of cancer at the age of 60.

Paris entered adult movies in 1988 after moving to Los Angeles, where she dabbled as a secretary, mud wrestler and nude model before performing in her first triple-X title, Girls of Double D 7 . Her first starring role was in Moonlight Entertainment's Live In, Love In (1989), a parody of Three's Company co-starring Tori Welles, Carol Cummings and Robert Bullock, to whom Paris was married at the time.

The following year, she took home Best All-Girl Sex Scene -- Video (with Sabrina Dawn) for Henri Pachard's The New Barbarians , and Best Couples Sex Scene -- Video (with Randy West) for Paul Thomas' Beauty and the Beast 2 , both from VCA. Then in 1992, she won Best Girl/Girl Scene from the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) for her performance with Angela Summers and Sandra Scream in the Bruce Seven-helmed Snatched to the Future from Elegant Angel Productions.

Some of Paris' other most notable credits include:

  • John Leslie's The Chameleon (1989, VCA),

  • John Stagliano's The Adventures of Buttman (1989, Evil Angel),
