OnlyFans on Wednesday announced that it will no longer ban sexually explicit content on its platform.

Last week, the content subscription site said that it would prohibit the posting of “any content containing sexually explicit conduct” beginning on October 1. OnlyFans founder Tim Stokely later addressed the reason for the ban, claiming that banks have continued to deter the company’s growth, going as far as citing reputational risk and declining their business.

However, OnlyFans took to Twitter on Wednesday to share that the planned ban will no longer go forward.

“Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard,” the tweet began. “We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change. OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.”

It’s unclear whether OnlyFans secured a deal with banks associated with the platform to go forth with sexually explicit content on the site.

The initially proposed ban was met with heavy criticism, as OnlyFans, founded in 2016, has evolved into a leading source of income and a safe space for sex workers who post adult content.

Last week, following news of the ban, Tyga announced that he deleted his OnlyFans account and has plans to launch a competing platform called Myystar.
