OnlyFans is a social media platform, not unlike Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. However, this website has a catch: Users must pay a subscription fee in order to view the profiles they want to follow on the site. OnlyFans explicitly states this in their FAQ: “The media contained within your posts is fully hidden until the point of purchase, at which point the subscriber can view all of your content.”
Comparable to following a private account on Instagram (where the user must formally permit you to follow them), or requesting to become someone’s friend on Facebook (where the user must formally accept your request), not just anyone can see what a particular user posts.
But you’re probably wondering, “Why in the world would I pay money simply to follow someone on a social media website?” Well, the main reason is that OnlyFans exists as one of the few sites that actually allows explicit content.
Unlike Instagram, which only allows “nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures,” and Facebook, which only permits nudity in art or “as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons,” OnlyFans allows users, and possibly even encourages them, to post revealing or entirely nude pictures of themselves. OnlyFans also permits explicit videos, with certain restrictions. The subscription fee, then, helps establishes a sense of privacy and control for users of the risqué platform.
Is OnlyFans legit?
Of course, when dealing with such sensitive material, user safety is incredibly important, a reality that OnlyFans is well aware of. To join the site, users are required to undergo a rigorous application process in which they must provide proof of legal age (at least 18 years old), through some sort of government-issued identification and fill out a W-9 tax form.
The user must then wait until their request has been considered and approved before they are able to attach their bank account to their profile. Because OnlyFans cares so much about safety and abiding by the law, the background check may take a day or two.OnlyFans offers users an 80 percent commission on each subscription fee.

OnlyFans also uses a safe payment method. They employ a secure third party payment provider, which means users can never see your card details because your payment information is not stored at OnlyFans. The platform even mentions the fact that they have acquired over a million accounts, including “some very high profile influencers,” so they take the safety and privacy of their users seriously.
Is It Just Adult Film Lite?
While many OnlyFans profiles certainly fall under this category, the website is not normally defined as a cam-girl website.
While this might occur because the site is largely unknown, another reason could be that this isn’t the only service that OnlyFans provides. Users are not limited to explicit content and may opt out of this if they so desire. If someone wants…
