Former Bachelor contestant Matty Johnson is worried for young and impressionable OnlyFans creators. Johnson said on his podcast, The Babble, he worries OnlyFans could lead young people into the porn industry.

“I think the problem here is that OnlyFans could be a stepping stone into the porn industry,” Johnson said.

OnlyFans is a subscription-based site where mainly influencers and models, but really anyone who is interested, can create content deemed too promiscuous for other social media platforms. OnlyFans creators are not porn stars, nor strippers, but the content is typically sexual in nature.

Johnson voiced concerns that though OnlyFans creators aren’t porn stars, they are normalizing performing sexual acts for others via the internet, which could lead to partaking in porn in the future.

“If that’s your jam and if that’s how you want to make money—then that’s absolutely fine,” Johnson said. “But for younger people who are 18, 19, who are less aware, taking a photo with your nipple out, you do that for long enough it doesn’t seem like a big deal, you then can progress to doing more and more porn-type content. Over [time] you become quite desensitized to the content that you’re putting out there.”

Though there is some crossover between the porn industry and OnlyFans, it often goes opposite to what Johnson described. Many porn stars left the industry and created OnlyFans accounts because of the potential to make more money while creating their own content.

The difference between porn and OnlyFans is that OnlyFans allows creators to interact directly with their fans, which results in a more intimate experience, and is often less sexually explicit than porn. Now, some of the most popular OnlyFans creators can make tens of thousands of dollars, even over $100,000, a month on their own terms.
