OnlyFans launched in 2016 and became a medium for adult performers to directly connect with their fans. The site is full of NSFW photos and pictures that are hidden behind paywalls and fans of content creators can pay a monthly subscription fee to get access to premium content from their favorite accounts.
The site saw a rise in its users in 2020 when COVID-19 halted everything in the world. During that time, a lot of artists and other high-profile users used the site to promote their new projects.

It also offers artists a source of revenue. Influencer Bhad Bhabie claimed that she made $1 million in just six hours and posted the receipt on her Instagram page. Celebrities can charge subscription fees that typically go up to $49.99, for content that is only exclusive to the “fans”.
The site is becoming more and more mainstream every day because many celebrities are joining the site and convincing their fans to subscribe. A lot of male celebrities also use OnlyFans to post NSFW content for their fans and unfortunately, they get trolled online for it.
