A former teacher turned OnlyFans model is fuming that the subscription site is banning 'sexually explicit' porn in October – and expects to take a big financial hit.
Courtney Tillia told TMZ that she was confused about why OnlyFans – who owes its success to sex workers – is now hanging them out to dry, but insists that she won’t go back to teaching kids.
The brunette beauty has spent a relatively short time posting sexy snaps and videos on the site, but has already raked in a six figure salary.
Courtney pulls in between $20,000 (£14,500) and $100,000 (£72,900) every single month.
The former special education teacher has 18,000 loyal subscribers and is worried about how the rule change will affect her income.
She also said that she was confused about what exactly will be banned.
There are thousands of sex workers on the website – where subscribers pay a set monthly fee to gain access to content creators’ snaps and videos – who have carved out a living doing porn.
Courtney claimed that money was tight back when she was a teacher, but since finding fame on OnlyFans she’s bought cars, a new home and travelled around the world.
Luckily for the sex worker, Courtney has other sources of income including a life coaching business, but she admits that OnlyFans was the bulk of her income.
Courtney is worried that she only has a month to work out what to do next and women around the world will likely be thinking the same thing.
OnlyFans has over 120 million users and two million content creators – and it’s become synonymous with pornography thanks to many of its top creators being sex workers.
During the coronavirus pandemic a number of users turned to the site to make money after losing their jobs.
And, it’s not just Courtney who is outraged at the rule change.
Posting on Twitter, OnlyFans babe Jasmine, @jasminericegirl, said: “OnlyFans is banning all sexually explicit content from their platform.
“They've also made billions off of the backs of sex workers.
“As someone who does sex work on OF, I'm angry for every creator that has relied on OF for an income just to be thrown out. This is so f***ed up.”
She added: “I’ve been on this hell of a platform for over a f***ing year.
“’Ive dealt with all sorts of leaks, harassment, abuse, rape threats and death threats, all while OnlyFans ignores my emails for help and takes 20% of everything that I make.”
Jasmine noted: “I’m deleting all my content from the site.”
So, why is the website banning sexually explicit content?
Well, according to CNN, not all OnlyFans explicit content is going away as simple nudity will be allowed.
Only "content containing sexually-explicit conduct" will be banned which presumably means any sex acts.
An official spokesperson for OnlyFans told the Daily Star: "Effective 1 October, 2021, OnlyFans will prohibit the posting of any content containing sexually-explicit conduct. In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines.
"Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy."
