10 Best OnlyFans Alternatives for Content Creators (Sites Like OnlyFans)

By Amelia Peck

OnlyFans is the most popular and well-known adult creator platform – but it’s not always the best. Many creators want features that OnlyFans doesn’t offer, and that an alternative does.

Maybe you just want to post on a platform that isn’t associated with pornography? Or Maybe you want to be more discreet about your content? And posting on a lesser know platform will let you be more anonymous?

Whatever the reason, there are plenty of high quality subscription-based platforms for creators to monetize any audience with any type of content – nsfw or not. Many of these sprung up after OnlyFans announced they’d be banning sexual content in 2021. Creator’s go scared that they’d lose their income and moved to new platforms (a few of them are listed below).

7. JustForFans

Looking for a more direct competitor to OnlyFans than Patreon? JustForFans might be what you’re looking for.

JustForFans was created by Dominic Ford who is known as one of the most popular homosexual pornography stars in the industry. For this reason, JFF’s fan base is more targeted at the LGBT audience. However, there are straight adult stars, male and female with large (and growing) audiences on the platform.

OnlyFans absolutely permits all genders and orientations too – but JFF has become known specifically for its LGBT content.


  • JustForFans takes 20% of earnings

8. iFans

iFans claims that is has “everything our competitors have”, but that they are better for earning more money. It looks quite similar to OnlyFans, but has a few extra features.

One big difference is in discoverability and referrals. While the core subscription model works the same, there are a lot more opportunities to work with other creators, referring subscribers to each other and earning more from those referrals.

iFans pitches itself at being open to all creators, although similar to most other content creator platforms, most creators use the platform to post adult content.


  • Creators keep 80% of their earnings.
  • If a creator sends someone to another creator via a tag, they will receive a commission on any purchases that person makes.
  • β€˜Share for Share’ allows creators to share each other’s audiences through mutual tagging.

It’s a familiar UI for most because… it looks like Twitter. By adopting a similar design and features like blue ticks, trending, discover – Unfiltrd is really easy to use.

10. Patreon

– 210k Creators

Although Patreon is different from a lot of the OnlyFans alternatives on this list, it is still a good option. It limits explicit content – so Patreon is not for adult content. But if that doesn’t apply to you… then Patreon is likely the best option.


  • They take 5% commission on the Lite plan
  • 8-12% commission on the higher plans


  • βœ… Largest brand recognition
  • βœ… Lowest fees


  • ❌ No nsfw content allowed

How to Choose an OnlyFans Alternative

You don’t necessarily just want to jump on the next platform for one specific reason. Consider the follow factors before choosing an OnlyFans alternative:

  • 🚫 Content Restrictions – is your content allowed on the platform? This is the first question you should ask if you make nsfw content
  • % Commission Structure – how much does the platform take out of your earnings? The standard is the list above is 20%, but that doesn’t mean that is fair. Consider other platforms that charge less and leave you with more money in your pocket.
  • 🏟️ Size of Fanbase – how many people know about and already use the platform? You don’t want to have to educate potential subscribers on how to use it and what is does – subscribing to you should be frictionless!
  • πŸ’³ Payment Options – how can your fans pay you? The more payment methods available the higher the conversion rate. Do they take crypto, credit cards, PayPal? And consider how you want to be paid. Do they payout your earnings in a way you want to receive them?
  • πŸ“ž Community & Support – does the platform help you succeed? Do they respond swiftly to your queries and problems? Is there a thriving community of creators trying to help each other grow by sharing tips and advice?
  • 🧰 Platform Features – can you selL PPV on the platform? Send DMs? Schedule content? Look into whether the platform does what you need it to do. There are always new ways of making money from your fanbase being developed – stay up to date!
  • πŸ‘¨πŸΎβ€πŸ’» User Experience – is the design on the platform attractive and easy-to-use? You want your fans to be on there all the time, right? Well, it will help if it looks good and doesn’t require a whole bunch of mental effort to navigate.

To Sum It Up

OnlyFans is clearly the dominant adult creator platform. But the alternative options could be a great way to generate additional income from your existing revenues OR instead of OnlyFans.

Adult-oriented content creators may like to use a platform built exclusively for that type – OnlyFans was not made specifically for that purpose. And with the potential that OnlyFans might suddenly decide to ban adult content, it’s worth having a backup plan to diversify your income should that happen.

There’s no “best” alternative to OnlyFans. Instead there’s lots of viable OnlyFans alternatives for adult creators to choose from. Most follow the same structure, allowing monthly subscriptions and allowing creators to post content explicit adult content and interact/take payment from fans.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best OnlyFans alternatives for users (not creators)?

This is very individual and depends on the type of content a user wants to see. If you have a specific interest (like feet), then there are sites that cater to that content specifically (like FeetFinder).

Otherwise, the alternative platform you use will depend mainly on what platform the creator is using – fans follow creators, not platforms. And all these sites essentially do the same thing!
