Who is Tim Stokely?
Stokely is a British entrepreneur The Sunday Times once called “the king of homemade porn.” He was born in Harlow, England. The youngest son of a banker, he graduated from Anglia Ruskin University in East Anglia, England, according to The U.S. Sun. Having created a BDSM and fetish site called GlamWorship.com in 2011, Stokely teamed up with his father, Guy, and brother, Thomas, to launch OnlyFans in 2016, according to Forbes.
OnlyFans charges fans $4.99–$49.99 a month for access to exclusive content from a creator, who gets 80 percent of the subscription fee. The company’s success boomed during the COVID-19 pandemic when people stayed home and turned to alternative sources of income. In the 12-month span ending in November 2020, OnlyFans reaped revenues of $400 million. The revenues were 540 percent up from the year before and the post-tax profits rose from $6.6 million to $60 million, Forbes reported.
Why did OnlyFans want to ban explicit content?
Before the ban announcement, OnlyFans was pursuing a valuation of more than $1 billion, according to Bloomberg, but it was also struggling to find investors, according to an Aug. 19 Axios report. “OnlyFans has a porn problem,” Axios’ Dan Primack wrote, adding that some VC funds can’t invest in adult content. Some investors worried that minors would subscribe to OnlyFans, while others worried that OnlyFans couldn’t attract brand partners.
That same day, OnlyFans announced the crackdown on porn. “In order to ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform, and to continue to host an inclusive community of creators and fans, we must evolve our content guidelines,” OnlyFans said in a statement, according to Axios.
However, before the ban could take effect on Oct. 1, 2021, an outcry from users and fans of the platform stopped the company in its tracks. The ban was then reversed.
