OnlyFans and Demon Time are teaming up on Friday to launch the first-ever virtual nightclub.
OnlyFans is a popular subscription platform that requires subscribers to pay a monthly fee to become a creator's "fan" and see their NSFW images and videos. Demon Time is an exclusive virtual strip club hosted on Instagram Live that was launched during coronavirus lockdowns.
It's rumored that OnlyFans and Demon Time got inspired to start the partnership after the release of Beyoncé's new remix to "Savage." In the song, she raps, "Hips TikTok when I dance/On that Demon Time, she might start an OnlyFans."
Former international pro basketball player Justin LaBoy started Demon Time after the coronavirus forced nightclubs to shutter their doors.
"Shoutout to OnlyFans for doing great business and being a part of the culture," LaBoy wrote about the new partnership. "They were interested in helping women financially during these tough times while bringing entertainment to the people who are stuck at home bored."
Previously, Demon Time was streamed on Instagram Live. When he started out, LaBoy would drop the Instagram handle to the account where the show would be live-streamed.
Women, usually in masks, performed for thousands of people online. The viewers were encouraged to tip the performers, who had their CashApp information pinned in the comments. That's when LaBoy introduced a tier system, with the lowest "verified demon" priced at $200.
Instagram was furiously searching and taking down the live streams as the shows violate its community guidelines. So, Demon Time got more exclusive. The show became invite-only with required minimum payments to attend.
But now that OnlyFans has partnered with Demon Time, the virtual strip club won't have to sneak around anymore. It appears like OnlyFans will create a live-streaming platform specifically for Demon Time. OnlyFans described it as a "dual-screen live feature."
"I told y'all I wouldn't let you down. Now we have our own club," LaBoy tweeted. "We can do whatever we want, when we want, without getting reported or cut off. So you know it's about to get crazy with the demons."
The new partnership was announced, rather fittingly, with a soundbite of Beyoncé's "Savage" remix.
