OnlyFans platform’s profits soar: Nearly 3.2 Million Creators
Parent company Fenix International’s released accounts reveal the adult subscription platform’s substantial profitability increase.
In 2022, the site saw a 47% rise in content creators, reaching almost 3.2 million, while the number of fans grew 27% to 238.8 million.
The platform’s pre-tax profit soared to $525 million (£417 million), significantly surpassing the £374 million achieved in 2021.
The site enables sex workers to post explicit content for which users pay a subscription fee, with creators keeping 80% of their earnings.
It generated a total of $5.6 billion (£4.4 billion) from fans accessing adult content in 2022. While primarily known for adult material, OnlyFans has also started hosting safe-for-work videos, diversifying its content offerings.
The company stated its mission is to build a safe social media platform that empowers content creators.
It paid over £87 million (£69 million) in corporation tax in the past year and has also faced scrutiny regarding its advertising, with billboards featuring an OnlyFans model sparking complaints.
The UK’s advertising watchdog cleared the billboards, deeming them unlikely to cause offense.
