OnlyFans taps ex-porn star Mia Khalifa to promote ‘safe for work’ app

1

OnlyFans is pushing an exclusively “safe for work” app on Apple and Google devices — but has meanwhile tapped an ex-porn star to help promote it.

Former adult actress Mia Khalifa has a series of free interview videos on OnlyFans’ new app, called “OFTV.” The app also features former Disney princess Bella Thorne — who famously turned porn producer — as well as cooking and fitness instructional videos. 

OnlyFans, which says it has more than 150 million users worldwide, is primarily known as a platform where people sell nude photos and videos. The company’s explicit reputation has prevented it from releasing apps for Apple and Google devices, as both tech giants have policies forbidding pornography apps.

OFTV, which as a no nudity policy, has been available on Apple devices since last August, according to App Store records — but OnlyFans has not promoted it publicly until this week.

OnlyFans didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment by The Post.

“There’s no adult content on OFTV,” CEO Tim Stokely told Bloomberg. “Because it’s not being monetized and there’s no direct impact on creators’ earnings, we are able to be in the app store.”

In addition to making releasing apps difficult, the company’s smutty reputation may also be scaring off potential venture capital investors, many of which have agreements that prevent them from investing in “vice” industries including porn, alcohol and firearms.

OFTV, which will not change fees or include advertising, is part of a marketing push to clean up the company’s reputation while keeping profitable explicit content on its main website. 

“People who have come on to OFTV to watch one video may go on to choose another,” Stokely told Bloomberg. “It’s a wider audience, and perhaps a slightly different audience.”
