Almost two years ago, Lauren quit her office job to work full time on her OnlyFans profile — posting semi-nude and nude images on the subscriber-based social network. OnlyFans describes itself as a social network, where anyone who creates content can set a monthly subscription fee for their followers. It isn't aimed primarily at people who sell nudes or explicit content — but a large amount of users are doing exactly that. A new BBC Three documentary, Nudes4Sale , meets Lauren, 23, and others like her, who say their income from sharing adult content on the site far surpasses what they could earn in regular employment.
But there's a dark side: the documentary found evidence of the age verification process being circumvented, meaning unders were able to illegally sell explicit content of themselves on the site. OnlyFans users often use other social networks, like Twitter and Snapchat, to advertise their OnlyFans profiles and direct followers to them. Research conducted by the BBC found that, on a single day, a third of all the Twitter profiles analysed for the study could have belonged to an underage person.
Snapchat told the BBC: "We strictly prohibit s that promote or distribute pornographic content. We do not scan the content of private s, but we continually look for ways to find and remove these s, including discussions with other platforms like Twitter. Twitter said it has "zero tolerance for any material that features or promotes child sexual exploitation," and asked for further information on the s found in the documentary that may have been linking to such content.
She used the ID of an older friend, even though they didn't look alike, and managed to use OnlyFans for seven months using various profiles. She claims that selling nudes on social media was extremely lucrative. Hannah says she hasn't attended school for the past couple of years. I got pushed out of school when I was about 13, I was like, I'm not going to school, it's not happening.
Turning to the internet after refusing to continue her education, she says: "I was 14, turning 15, when I started gaining followers [online]. A lot of them were around my age because they knew me in person.
On Hannah's situation, OnlyFans told the BBC: "When we were alerted in August to an allegation that an individual was potentially underage and gained access. We took proactive, swift measures to suspend and limit functionality and activity of the . She actively conspired with a of adult accomplices. They all intentionally, knowingly and repeatedly tried to cheat our age verification checks.
There is not currently a legal requirement for online platforms to monitor explicit content that could have originated from underage users — this means that the creator of the content and the person that buys it would face criminal liability if any action was taken. Laws on soliciting — the sale of sexual services — don't include any clauses about advertising online. Instead, that's covered by other laws around obscene material.
The OnlyFans users featured in the documentary don't exchange sexual services for money with their followers. While Lauren tries to reply to as many of hers as possible to maximise her profits, she says she's never been tempted to go any further. Recalling the kind of messages she's received, Lauren says: "'Will you sleep with me, I'll give you five grand?
In the UK it's an offence to make, distribute, possess or show any indecent image of anyone under However Journalist Ellie Flynn, who reports on the issue in the documentary, thinks that because there is little regulation on the internet, coupled with the law of consent being 16 it's "A kind of grey area. Ellie thinks the onus needs to be on the platforms to perform stricter checks on the ages of people ing up to the platform, but says that it's important to remember many women are actively choosing this line of work. It should be on the adults who run those platforms to ensure they don't succeed.
It is important to have an open discussion without stigmatising sex work, but also saying it can be dangerous, and it's important to think about whether it really is the right thing for you. In a statement sent to the BBC, OnlyFans said: "We constantly review our systems to ensure they are as robust as possible, to ensure that OnlyFans operates in line with all legislation and guidance. If we are alerted to any underage individual who has gained or tried to gain illegitimate access to the platform we will always take immediate steps to investigate and suspend the .
We have ificantly changed and upgraded our age and identity verification process, making it far harder for underage persons to abuse the system and gain access without specific assistance from an adult. Thea de Gallier 6 July Share this:. Copy this link. Most Popular. How to masturbate.
