AVN Stars recently stated that it will be moving away from a membership model and moving toward an ad revenue model. This implies that all content creators using the webpage will forfeit all membership fees and their content will be viewable by anyone visiting the adult content creator platform, starting in January 2022.
This comes just months after OnlyFans declared it was pulling all adult content off the site, a choice that was reversed just days after the fact. Notwithstanding, the tales have not disappeared and it is widely estimated that something nearly identical will occur in 2022. This is despite the way most OnlyFans content creators are posting adult content. Why does OnlyFans expect to lose a large amount of income and why has AVN Stars previously made the statement that it will no longer tolerate membership fees?
Adult content is a normally dangerous business to be involved in. Of the plethora of things one can sell on the web, adult photographs and recordings are presumably the ones that have the most legitimate problems. This is not because it is illegal – that would simplify – but because there are numerous ill-defined situations. Things like reward pornography regulations or content guarantees embody individuals of legal age, so to speak. So a ton of standard banks and installment processors prefer not to get involved with anything related to sex work, including adult content creation platforms. However, these are the processors that have the least charges, so a ton of content creator platforms have settled with them as of now.
What’s more, they’re currently noting that it’s more difficult to move this relationship forward. They either need to switch to an adult content compatible installmentprocessor which will bring on heavier expenses (which they can’t afford as they haven’t made arrangements for this) or are closing the books too often which means they can’t keep a consistent trading account. It is creating gigantic problems for these platforms as they are making an extreme move to reconsider their call to action by stopping offering access to adult content. All things considered, they will either have to eliminate adult content (which is what OnlyFans tried to do), or offer all content for nothing and bring in their money in another way, for example through local promotion (the AVN Stars approach).
The assumption is that OnlyFans will phase out adult content in 2022, though likely with further ongoing changes to long-term deals rather than the abrupt removal of the bandage it tried before in 2021.
