In context: OnlyFans is well known for its many, many accounts filled with adult content, though there are plenty in which people keep their clothes on. Despite attracting over 130 million users per month, there’s never been an app that replicates the website—Google and Apple don’t allow that sort of stuff on their respective stores. Surprisingly, OF does have an app version; it just lacks any naked bodies.

Bloomberg reports that the OnlyFans app, called OFTV, launched in January after being in development for some time; the company is only now promoting it. The app is part of an attempt to distance itself from the “amateur porn site” image and become a reputable platform for online creators, similar to Patreon.

The app currently includes a library of over 800 videos, including the original series “Unlocked,” which features conversations with creators such as media personality and former adult-movie performer Mia Khalifa, actress/director Bella Thorne and Holly Madison. There are also videos from fitness instructors, chefs, musicians, podcasters, and more. Bloomberg notes that while it is free of porn, there are plenty of scantily clad females—one of the podcasts is called Coffee and Cleavage—but the same could be said of Twitch.

“OFTV provides a super convenient way for fans to watch content from favorite creators,” OnlyFans CEO Tim Stokely told Bloomberg. “There’s no adult content on OFTV. Because it’s not being monetized and there’s no direct impact on creators’ earnings, we are able to be in the app store.”

OFTV is available now on the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Stokely says there are currently no plans to start charging for access or to introduce ads.

The popularity of the OnlyFans website soared throughout the pandemic last year, with transactions increasing seven-fold to $2.4 billion and revenue up 553% to around $390.4 million. A recent report claimed that creating content for the site helped the UK cope with lockdowns.

I've seen people call this correctly: it was only a matter of time before even a lucrative company like Onlyfans is defeated by anti-sex-work, puritanical corporate forces and pressure.

Though it will still be a huge miscalculation: you can't separate sex work from the platform at this point and it would wither and die without by simply becoming another competitor.

I'm sure someone will develop a new platform to take it's place.

We have come to a point where men or should I say "men" are paying money to women online and it's not to even get naked. She's out there banging other guys for free while a loser is spending money hoping he'll get a glimpse of her nipple one day.

Given what many of those women are doing (Demi Rose for example) its right on point.
I'm not sure what you talking about, have never used onlyfans, and assume those women you mentioned were similar to ASMR youtubers mimicing d!ck sucking sound.
This is weird topic for me. I understand why people pay for sex but don't get it why people paying to see others' to do it or watching sports.

In this particular case, Demi is a “famous” instagram model, who started as a escort and only has sexy photos.

then she opened an OnlyFan page and the stated reason was to show nudes photos of herself.

Men flocked to it, paid and got “nudes”.
But her nudes never show anything, since she always cover her parts with objects or angles.
