OnlyFans is begging you to put some clothes on, and more news you missed

When it comes to shooting content, it’s fair to say that clothing, for the vast majority of OnlyFans creators, is not a primary concern. There are bigger things at hand! And yet the platform is seemingly desperate to get more people wearing clothes, launching the OnlyFans creative fashion fund – a Project Runway-style competition whereby first and second-place designers will be awarded $50,000 and $25,000 dollars. Having inaugurated a similar scheme for musicans last year, it’s the latest attempt to veer the platform away from its NSFW associations. Hosted by reality star Francesca Farago, the initiative will be documented as a television series on OnlyFans’ free video offshoot, and will be judged by stylists Law Roach, Maeve Reilly, and makeup artist Sir John. “OnlyFans is a creator-first platform and has always had a commitment to support its creators across a range of verticals,” CEO Ami Gan said. “This is one additional pulse point we’re giving our community around this sentiment.”
