OnlyFans is a site that came into focus because it is used to sell nudes online. The platform is similar to a social network, with profiles that can follow other people or be followed, but with an addendum: there is a charge for a value so that users can see the content of those who follow. In addition to the web version, the service also offers an application for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, but that is not yet available in Brazil.

The website was created in 2011 so that digital influencers could put their content on demand, so fans should pay a stipulated amount to receive this extra material, such as photos and videos. However, it was not just these groups of people who took advantage of OnlyFans: people from all over the world started selling pictures and explicit videos to raise money. There are now more than 12 million registered users. Among the content creators that make use of the platform are experts in fitness culture, fashion influencers, musicians and independent artists, as well as characters from the porn industry.

There is a monthly subscription scheme in the service, in which the fan pays an amount per month to access the material that person publishes during the period. In addition, there is the format pay-per-view, which allows you to send the content directly to a fan for a certain price, but with the guarantee that you will receive the money beforehand, since it is not possible to view it without making the payment. For the most generous, there is still the possibility of tipping, whether for a message or photo received, an accepted request, among others.
Because it does not have a policy that restricts the content published by users, the platform opened the door for people to start selling nudes to anyone and for varying prices. Most of the users are men, who set prices between US $ 5 and US $ 25 per month for the subscription, about R $ 20 to R $ 100 reais, according to the current quote of the American currency. Women, even in smaller numbers, charge more: fans must pay up to U $ 40 dollars, just over R $ 160 reais, to receive female nudes.
Values ??change according to the popularity of the person in question. Depending on the number of subscribers, users can get a good monthly remuneration, mainly because the amounts are in dollars. Stars of the porn industry, for example, manage to take many fans to the platform, but it is worth mentioning that the platform gets 20% of the value.

OnlyFans accepts different forms of payment, with debit and credit cards being the most recurring. There is also the possibility to use Wallet Credits, a platform for adding funds to a virtual wallet. Thus, the money can be used in any registration.
However, the platform also offers risks, especially with regard to image leakage, as it is possible to find photos and / or videos from OnlyFans on Google or other social networks. Some users place their content as protected by copyright to, in case of leaks, have the possibility to file lawsuits.
Still, this alone does not inhibit the chances of having a nude seen elsewhere and by someone who has not paid. Another thing that can generate suspicion about the security of users' images is the fact that the service is connected to social networks, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
