Something weird is happening on the internet.

We know – that’s a vague statement to make, and there’s always something unusual to find online. But this feels particularly strange because it’s to do with YouTube and OnlyFans.

There are some new crazes for content creators publishing videos on YouTube that you would think would be taken down immediately, and yet they aren’t being removed.

Is YouTube about to become a new platform for you to push your OnlyFans? Or is this a short-term fad that’ll soon be confined to the YouTube trash can?

Let’s take a look. Make sure you read all the way to the end for some top tips on creating YouTube content as an OnlyFans creator, to maximize your earning potential.

What’s Happening

To put it simply, content creators seem to believe that they’ve found a loophole on YouTube that’s allowing them to post spicy content.

As long as their videos claim to be non-sexual in nature, they seem to think they can get away with adding nudity, and while they are talking about non-sexual things, in reality, they’re showing off their body and then helping to drive more traffic to their paid channels such as OnlyFans.

The biggest craze seems to be around fashion, and trying on clothes that are see-through.

By adding a disclaimer to the start of the video, the creators are trying to provide a ‘warning’ about the nature of the content and explain that it is not designed to evoke any kind of sexual feelings – it’s purely fashion, right?

Sometimes it’s even more blatant that they are trying to be sexual, such as in this video, where the content creator claims to be testing how good these white shirts are when they get wet, and whether they turn transparent.

Spoiler alert – they very much do get transparent.

And then there’s this video, which is perhaps the most explicit one of all – you have been warned! This isn’t a fashion video but is instead a shaving tutorial, which shows extreme close-ups of, well, everything.

Update: The video below seems to now have been removed by YouTube due to being ‘against their terms of service'.

In all of these cases, the creators are using clever ways to link to their other content around the internet, whether it’s QR codes embedded in the video, or a bio link in the description or the creator’s YouTube profile.

The idea is that this content can generate serious interest sexually, whilst clearly stating that it is ‘not’ designed to be sexual so that viewers are interested in discovering more.

YouTube’s Content Guidelines Explained

YouTube's content guidelines are designed to maintain a balance between allowing creative expression and protecting viewers from harmful or inappropriate content.

The platform has explicit rules regarding nudity and sexually suggestive content, aiming to prevent explicit material from being easily accessible to the general audience. Let’s take a look at what those guidelines say.

Nudity and Sexual Content

YouTube strictly prohibits content that features pornography or sexually explicit acts. However, not all nudity is treated equally.

The platform does allow certain types of content that include nudity, provided it is presented in an educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic context, and not in a gratuitous or exploitative manner.

For instance, a video on breast cancer awareness or a documentary about indigenous tribes that features non-sexual nudity may be permitted.

Loopholes and Exploitation

Recently, some content creators have been testing the boundaries of these guidelines by posting videos that, while not explicitly sexual, are suggestive in nature.

They exploit the gray areas by framing their content as fashion reviews, fitness tutorials, or other seemingly non-sexual topics.

By adding disclaimers that claim the content is non-sexual, they attempt to bypass YouTube's automated moderation systems and community guidelines.

This isn’t the first time that YouTube’s guidelines have been challenged (and it’ll be far from the last), but what’s interesting is that there doesn’t seem to have been the immediate reaction from the platform that there usually would be.

Enforcement and Consequences

YouTube employs a combination of automated systems and human reviewers to enforce its guidelines.

Videos that violate the rules are subject to removal, and channels that repeatedly breach the guidelines may be demonetized, suspended, or permanently banned. The platform also relies on user reports to identify and review questionable content.

And that’s where we might be seeing something interesting here because the YouTube videos that creators have posted so far haven’t been removed even within a couple of weeks of going live.

By adding disclaimers that claim the content is non-sexual, they attempt to bypass YouTube's automated moderation systems and community guidelines.

YouTube is normally pretty good at responding to bad content and will remove it within a matter of hours or, at worst, days in most cases.

But so far this nude content has survived. Is that because of the way it’s exploiting the loopholes? Or is it because the viewers are enjoying the content and not complaining?

There’s a good chance that the content isn’t reaching an audience of people likely to be offended, and that instead everyone who is actually watching these videos is just enjoying what they see.

As a result, the content might be flying under the radar, for the time being at least.

Why This Is Important

For OnlyFans creators, the potential to use YouTube as a promotional platform is a potential game-changer.

YouTube’s massive user base offers unparalleled opportunities for reaching new audiences and engaging with existing fans.

By leveraging YouTube, creators can tap into a vast pool of potential subscribers who might not otherwise discover their content – and they can hit them with even more exciting content that is more likely to attract them.

Expanding Reach

YouTube boasts billions of monthly active users, making it one of the most visited websites globally.

For OnlyFans creators, this means access to a vast, diverse audience. By strategically creating and posting content that hints at their more exclusive offerings on OnlyFans, creators can attract curious viewers and convert them into paying subscribers.

The platform’s searchability and recommendation algorithms also increase the likelihood of new viewers discovering their content.

This is YouTube – the absolute king of websites for encouraging people down a rabbit-hole of content. Meaning if you can tap into the right content themes, you could get your videos viewed by a massive number of people.

Superior Platform for Long-Form Content

Unlike other social media platforms, YouTube excels at hosting long-form video content.

This is particularly useful for OnlyFans creators who want to provide more in-depth previews, tutorials, or engaging narratives that can’t be effectively conveyed through shorter clips typical of Instagram or TikTok.

Creators can use YouTube to showcase their personality, creativity, and unique style in a way that can captivate audiences, building a deeper connection that encourages viewers to seek out more intimate content on OnlyFans.

Remember that you don’t become a success on OnlyFans because of how sexy your content is, but also because you’re trying to build a relationship with your fans. And so YouTube can be the tool that you use to showcase the best insight into who you really are, and why they should be interested in pursuing an online ‘friendship’ with you.

Exciting Content for Potential Fans

By navigating YouTube’s guidelines, OnlyFans creators can offer tantalizing content that piques the interest of fans without crossing the line into explicit material.

Fashion hauls, fitness routines, behind-the-scenes looks, and lifestyle vlogs can all be crafted to subtly promote their OnlyFans, apparently without breaching YouTube’s rules.

This approach not only means that you stay compliant but also teases exclusive content, driving viewer curiosity and subscription rates.

Other social media platforms are even more strict on nudity, and it’ll be interesting to see if and when YouTube clamps down on some of this content. For now, it seems like it could be the best social platform to plug nude content, as long as you do it in the right way.

Creating a Funnel for Monetization

Let’s not forget that you can earn money directly on YouTube as well. YouTube’s monetization options, including ad revenue and channel memberships, provide additional income stream options for OnlyFans creators.

By growing a substantial following on YouTube, creators can monetize their content directly through the platform while simultaneously directing traffic to their OnlyFans. This dual-income strategy maximizes earnings and builds a sustainable business model.

Ultimately, you should treat this more as a bonus. Your goal should be to drive people to a paying subscription on OnlyFans, especially as YouTube could pull your content at any time.

Plus it sounds like a lot of creators making this kind of content on YouTube are at least getting demonetized even if they aren’t having content removed. So you absolutely shouldn’t rely on the fact that YouTube could directly earn you money.

Still, you might be able to, even for a little while.

Engaging Community Interaction

YouTube’s interactive features, such as comments, live chats, and community posts, allow OnlyFans creators to engage with their audience in real-time.

This interaction fosters a sense of community and loyalty among fans, making them more likely to support creators on multiple platforms. The personal connection and responsiveness that YouTube facilitates can significantly enhance fan engagement.

Just take a look at the comments on the videos we’ve shared above. There are loads of them, and they’re almost exclusively positive. If you can tap into that vibe, and get active in the comments, you can definitely take advantage of the platform to further build up your community.

Is It Worth Investing Time In?

So, with all of this positivity around the potential of YouTube, you must be thinking it’s a great idea to start posting videos immediately, right?

Actually, we aren’t so sure.

Because yes, it appears for now that this content is getting around YouTube’s content guidelines, but that could change in an instant. If you poured hours and hours into making YouTube content, you could find all that work wiped out very quickly once YouTube decides to pull the rug on nude content altogether.

However, OnlyFans creators have an advantage in that they’re already used to shooting video. You’ll know how to make content and there’s a good chance you can turn around a video in relatively quick time.

So here’s our recommendation – you should give YouTube a go, provided you’re able to get a channel set up relatively quickly and you’re comfortable shooting videos with a short turnaround time so that you aren’t investing huge amounts of your own time into the channel.

Not everyone’s in that position – you might be making your OnlyFans content around existing commitments, and have limited free time to promote yourself. If that’s the case, it’ll be better to stick to safer channels that you know won’t be deleted at short notice.

But if you can film a video in 10 minutes and then get it uploaded fast, and you’re looking for ways to smash the glass ceiling and break into the upper echelons of OnlyFans as an earner, then YouTube is now a viable option for finding new audiences.

It looks like YouTube might be one of those tools that explodes in popularity for a short while before it disappears as a nude content option quickly, so we’d recommend getting in on the action as quickly as possible, even if it’s only for a short-term boost.

Just make sure you’re driving people to a bio link tool such as Ohh.me if you want to maximize your success, because then even if your YouTube content does get taken down, you’ll have captured them on your other social media accounts even if they’re yet to be convinced to sign up to your OnlyFans account.

Top Tips for YouTube OnlyFans Success

  • Add a disclaimer to your videos advising that the content is not intended as sexual. It might just help to keep it from being removed from the platform.
  • Be careful to show nothing too explicit. Nude seems to be OK, but is a risk. Aim to stick to transparent clothing instead if you want to keep your content alive
  • Use a bio link tool like Ohh.me to capture new fans across your social channels
  • Promote your YouTube content on your other channels – it is designed to be shareable after all!
  • Be efficient with content creation – perhaps shoot a YouTube video and an OnlyFans video in one go, creating separate edits. Maybe you try on a range of transparent clothing, and then remove it and get sexual with yourself for an exclusive OF video
  • Get your subscribers involved! They could buy the transparent clothing for you from a wishlist, and you can reward them with some exclusive videos just for them.
