Accounts and payments to Russian content creators were “temporarily suspended” by the platform back in February. For now, the company has no plans to resume work with creators in that country.
OnlyFans, a platform popular with sex workers and used primarily by adult content creators, said it was “no longer able to properly serve our Russian creator community” due to Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine. OnlyFans told Motherboard the following in a statement:
OnlyFans is known for its countless community of adult content creators and their fans. Some talented models like Corinna Kopf earn up to $1 million a month.
Payments to content creators from Russia were suspended in February when Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began. OnlyFans, a British company, blocked authors based in Russia from accessing the platform.
Authors in Russia received a message from the OnlyFans support team saying, “We inform you that your country is not supported for payments, so we cannot help you with this issue at this time.
Bisexcouplefamilyfree, one of the Russian content creators using Pornhub and OnlyFans to protest the war, was the first to notice this change. “We can’t work on OnlyFans now,” they told me. “We worked on this platform for a year, and now we have to start all over again. It’s a shame that all Russians are now perceived as the enemy.” But not everyone supports the war. And many continue to express their position despite the fact that it is dangerous in Russia.”
