A Guide to OnlyFans Creator Rules

A Guide to OnlyFans Creator Rules

OnlyFans is a popular platform that allows content creators to monetize their online presence by offering exclusive content to their fans. However, as a creator, you need to be aware of the OnlyFans guidelines and rules governing the platform and ensure your content is compliant with them. In 2021, OnlyFans made some significant changes to its terms of service by prohibiting “sexually explicit conduct” but reversed the ban a couple of days later.

So what does this mean for OnlyFans content creators? What are the guidelines for creating exclusive content without getting banned? In this article, we will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the OnlyFans content guidelines, account guidelines, and financial management guidelines. By following these terms, you can avoid potential issues or violations that could jeopardize your account and income. 

OnlyFans Content Guidelines 101

One of the main attractions of OnlyFans is how it allows creators to post various types of content — including nude and sexual content — that may not be allowed on other platforms. However, this does not mean anything goes on OnlyFans. There are still some restrictions and limitations on what you can post and how you can post it. 

Additionally, the terms for posting sexually explicit content have grown stricter in recent years to make the platform safer for everyone. Let’s go over the updated guidelines for publishing content on OnlyFans below.

Types of Content Allowed on OnlyFans

OnlyFans allows two main types of content: nude and sexual content and non-sexual content. Each has specific guidelines you need to be aware of.

Nude and Sexual Content

Nude and sexual content is one of the most popular and profitable types of content on OnlyFans. Though many content creators have grown their following and income from posting adult material, OnlyFans sexual guidelines became stricter in 2021. While there has been much buzz around OnlyFans banning content with sexual imagery, this type of content is still allowed, so long as adult content creators adhere to all content policies.

To post nude and sexual content, you must follow these OnlyFans rules:

  • You must be at least 18 and upload a verified identification card.
  • You must have informed consent from all the people involved in your content and/or sexual activity and respect their privacy and boundaries.
  • Do not post any content that involves minors, lack of consent, sexual assault, genital mutilation, and other illegal and/or violent content.
  • Do not post any content that infringes on the intellectual property rights of others, such as copyrighted music, movies, or images.
  • Do not post any content that promotes or encourages illegal activity, such as drug use, prostitution, or human trafficking.
  • Do not broadcast sexual content from a public place or space where nudity is illegal.
  • Do not include product placements, advertising, job posting, contests, or sales along with nude content.
  • Do not share or repost other creators’ content without their authorization.
  • Deepfaked content of any kind is strictly prohibited.

According to an OnlyFans spokesperson, “Creators will continue to be allowed to post content containing nudity as long as it is consistent with our Acceptable Use Policy. These changes are to comply with the requests of our banking partners and payout providers.” This means users can still post nude and pornographic images on the platform. However, illegal content is prohibited.

Non-Sexual Content

Non-sexual content is any content that does not involve nudity or sexual acts. This can include fitness, lifestyle, gaming, cooking, art, music, comedy, or any other niche you are passionate about. 

When posting non-sexual content, there are still some rules you must keep in mind and adhere to. It is against the terms of use to post content on OnlyFans that:

  • Is hateful, abusive, harassing, defamatory, or otherwise harmful to others
  • Is discriminatory to others on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, etc.
  • Is false, misleading, deceptive, or fraudulent
  • Contains personal or sensitive information of others without their permission
  • Is considered spamming or phishing
  • Contains, depicts, or promotes illegal activities
  • (Is calculated to) cause inconvenience or anxiety to anyone else
  • Is likely to upset, embarrass, or cause offense to anyone else

As with sexual content, non-sexual content must also not be copyrighted, deepfaked, posted without participants’ consent, or involve minors.

Prohibited Content on OnlyFans

OnlyFans has a strict policy against certain types of content prohibited on the platform.

Illegal or Prohibited Items

You must not post any content that involves the sale or promotion of illegal or prohibited items, such as weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia, stolen goods, counterfeit goods, or human organs.

Immorality and Social Vices

You must not post any content that involves the promotion or glorification of immorality and social vices, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, pedophilia, terrorism, or extremism.

Overall Account Guidelines and Rules

Besides the content guidelines, you must also follow some account guidelines and rules that apply to your overall presence and activity on OnlyFans. 

Profile Picture Guidelines

It’s essential to remember your profile picture also counts as content posted on the OnlyFans website. Therefore, it must also follow the above content guidelines.

 In addition, make sure your profile picture:

  • Is clear and of high quality 
  • Shows your face and/or body
  • Is free of any nudity or sexual acts
  • Does not contain any text or logos
  • Is not phishing or deep-faking someone else
  • Is an image that is 100% owned by you or legally licensed to you

Account Types Guidelines

OnlyFans offers two types of accounts: free accounts and subscription-based accounts. You need to choose the type of account that suits your goals and preferences.

Free accounts allow you to post free content for anyone to access. With free accounts, you can still charge for individual posts or messages if you want to offer exclusive or premium content to your fans. Free OnlyFans profiles account for 90% of all creator profiles, with many creators posting additional content behind pay-per-view paywalls.

Subscription-based accounts allow you to charge a monthly fee for your fans to access your entire profile and all your posts. You can offer free trials or limited-time discounts to attract more fans to a subscription-based account. Most users expect the additional content behind the initial subscription paywall to be free of charge.

You can switch between free and subscription-based accounts at any time. However, you must inform your fans in advance and give them enough time to adjust their subscriptions accordingly.

Both account types require you to adhere to all content guidelines.

Financial Management Guidelines for OnlyFans Creators

OnlyFans is a great way to earn money from your online presence. Many creators have learned how to make $10,000 or more monthly by growing their OnlyFans accounts. However, you need to manage your finances wisely and responsibly. Here are some tips on how to do that:

  • Set a realistic and sustainable price for your content and subscriptions: Refrain from overcharging or undercharging your fans. Consider the niche, quality, quantity, and frequency of your content, as well as the demand in your market.
  • Keep track of your income and expenses: Use a spreadsheet or an app to record your earnings and spending. 
  • Pay your taxes: All OnlyFans income above $600 annually in the United States is taxable. Make sure you pay your taxes and fees on time and in full, in accordance with federal and state regulations.
  • Save some money for emergencies and investments: Have a budget and a savings plan for the money you earn. Invest some money in improving your content, equipment, and skills.
  • Invest in marketing: Another essential investment is marketing to grow your account. Whether by launching paid advertisements on social media or partnering with an OnlyFans marketing agency, this investment brings financial gains in the long run.

Safeguard Your OnlyFans Account With the Right Management

OnlyFans is a platform that gives you plenty of freedom and flexibility to create and share your content with your fans. By following these OnlyFans content creator rules, you can ensure a successful and compliant presence on the platform.
