Why I’m Not Leaving OnlyFans
In light of the recent drama surrounding OnlyFans and the so-called ‘leak’ of content, I’ve seen a lot of misinformation about what this actually entails, with a lot of models deciding to leave the platform as a result. So, I’ve decided to write a quick post about why I’m not leaving OnlyFans, and why this ‘leak’ isn’t really a valid reason to do so.
First things first – it’s not actually a leak. OnlyFans isn’t responsible for this issue – pirates are. It’s not as if someone has hacked the OnlyFans servers and downloaded all of the content and uploaded it for anyone to see, due to some terrible vulnerability in their security. No – it’s subscribers who have paid for access to profiles, downloaded all of the videos/photos, and put it all into a big collection for anyone to download. OnlyFans aren’t at fault.
All of those ditching OnlyFans in in lieu of similar sites need to know that this can happen anywhere. ManyVids, Clips4Sale, IWantClips, AVN Stars, JustForFans. If someone is able to view your content, they can pirate it. You’re not safe no matter where you post your content – this is something you should be coming to terms with before you post content anywhere. It sucks, and in an ideal world, it wouldn’t happen. But there are men out there who resent sex workers, who are so angry at the fact women are empowered enough to put their content behind a paywall, that they simply have to ruin it for everyone by stealing and distributing the content. It sucks, but that’s life.
There really isn’t much that can be done to prevent piracy. No matter what we do, there will always be a way to pirate content. So if you’re thinking of ditching OnlyFans, don’t do this just because of this instance of piracy. Your content isn’t truly ‘safe’ anywhere you go.
