OnlyFans is the new face of online exploitation. Let's talk about it.
During the pandemic era, the content subscription platform OnlyFans - the subscription-based adult-entertainment site – has boomed. Revenue at the UK-based company rose by 553% in the year 2020, and users spent $2.36 billion on the site, a seven-fold increase from previous years. OnlyFans is marketed as a site where individual content creators are provided a platform to access quick funds and monetize imagery that would be deemed inappropriate for Instagram and other mainstream platforms. But there is another, darker side to the OnlyFans story.
