OnlyFans, Snapchat and porn, in general, have surged during 2020 lockdowns. The trend shows that there has been a lot of interest from individuals to enjoy virtual sex and similar content. In a recent report released by Ofcom, they show that 50% of UK adults have watched porn during lockdowns. 

At the same time, other platforms such as Snapchat and OnlyFans have also registered an increase in interest during lockdowns. The situation around the world has pushed individuals to rely on virtual sex and contact rather than on real contact relationships.

OnlyFans Expansion

As per the report, there has been an increase in the use of sites such as OnlyFans. OnlyFans was created in order for celebrities and influencers to share content with their fan base. However, things turned out to be somehow different. Indeed, porn models that wanted to get some extra models have moved towards OnlyFans. 

Nowadays, several models and porn stars are working and making more money through OnlyFans rather than with the traditional porn industry. This is definitely a change in the way things were working in the past. 

A spokesperson said:

“It has been reported that economic factors caused by the lockdowns may have led people to turn to sites such as OnlyFans to generate an income, in the context of rising unemployment or furlough, and financial uncertainty for many in the UK.”

This shows that other reasons such as unemployment have pushed people to use OnlyFans as a way to generate an extra income at the end of the month. This can also be seen in the earnings recorded. In November 2020, OnlyFans recorded sales of £1.7 billion, which represents an increase of 615% compared to the previous 12 months. 

The expansion of OnlyFans is just the beginning, there are other things to take into consideration.

Adult Sites Grow in Popularity

In the past, it was considered taboo to talk about adult sites. Nowadays, it is very common to hear that people get access to unique adult content using porn sites. The situation has even increased during lockdowns. 

As per the study conducted by Ofcom, 49% of adults in the United Kingdom have used adult content sites. That means that in the U.K. alone around 26 million people have used these platforms. The most popular site for watching dirty content was Pornhub, a popular adult site. 

If we compare that with other traditional channels like Sky One, ITV4 or even BBC news, we can confirm that Pornhub had more visitors than these channels. This shows how things have changed during lockdowns. This is also something we should pay close attention to as it could help us understand where things could be moving in the future.

Moreover, younger generations reported also very large amounts of porn content visualization. 75% of men claimed they have visited Pornhub and 33% of women checked the site and its content. 

At the same time, Pornhub has also reported a larger user base. They now have more people registered and the trend could continue in the coming years as well. 

Snapchat Moves Forward

Snapchat has also become a very useful platform to handle dirty content. The application has expanded in recent years as an app that users could use to share VIP content with followers. The VIP content shared with followers is definitely paid, and this is where models have seen an increase in the number of visits and earnings. 

This is in line with the report released by Ofcom, where they informed that the average adult person in the UK spent 3.5 hours a day online in 2020. This is more than people in Germany and France (2.5 hours) and 0.5 hours more than Spanish adults.  

The lockdowns have helped pushed the current situation further. People now found themselves in a situation where they were closed at home and didn’t know what to do or how to have contact with others. Although we are now leaving lockdowns behind, things could change in the future as well. 

Snapchat could continue onboarding new users, and models could also use the platform to sell their content to clients. VIP users are expanding, as they realize that virtual content is now very good and with much better quality than they were five years ago.
