Just for Fans, which nearly shut down the adult services that brought it notoriety as a streaming platform announced a new consent program that better defines what kind of experience users and performers are looking for. The Consent Center on September 15 to assist models in complying with MasterCard’s new October 15 guidelines regarding adult websites to ensure that all uploaded videos have fully documented consent from its participants.
Creator Dominic Ford explains, “While getting signed 2257 documentation has always been required by U.S. law, MasterCard is taking this several steps further and requiring ‘consent forms’ – which are different from 2257 forms – to be uploaded to websites.
“Whereas 2257 forms needed to be maintained by producers (i.e. models) and not JFF, MasterCard is now requiring that adult sites themselves keep consent forms on record. Complicating this further, we understand that many amateur models have been afraid to give their ID and personal information to another model, because they have no guarantees how safely that information will be stored.
“We aim to solve both of these issues with our Consent Center. Now, a new scene partner fills out a consent form directly on JustFor.fans; their ID and personal information is stored securely on the site, and the model who filmed the movie does not have access to that information, other than knowing if consent was given or not.”
The controversial announcement that Only Fans would be changing policies around adult content sent many of its performers into panic mode as they had built a base of subscribers through the streaming site that had led many to become full-time streamers in lieu of other work. Had things not been adjusted it would have pushed the performers to find totally different platforms leaving open the possibility that their fans would no longer be able to find them.
The Consent Center contains several videos to show how the new system will be used, and JFF will conduct a webinar Friday, September 17 at 7pm East Coast time to answer any questions and walk models through how to use the Center with ease. Information can be found at https://twitter.com/

JFF makes it extremely easy for models to request consent both from other models – and scene partners who are not on JFF – simply by giving their email address or phone number. JFF handles the rest, which includes contacting the model and guiding them through the simple online consent form.
“All platforms that accept credit cards will have to abide by these new rules, whether they want to or not,” says Ford. “While other fan platforms have not publicly stated how they will comply with the new MasterCard rules, we are taking the lead by launching our Consent Center exactly one month ahead of when these new rules go in effect so our community can fully understand how to use it and not feel pressured. Starting October 15th, we will have to ensure that newly uploaded videos are compliant with the new MasterCard rules.”
“We understand how scary this transition can be for our models; what is scarier are sites that have not talked about their plans to be compliant, as models will most likely find those sites losing their abilities to process credit cards,” added Ford.
“To ease the fears of our models and fully answer any questions about these new rules, please attend our webinar, which is open and free for all verified models. Follow us on Twitter (@JustForFansSite) for details on how to attend the webinar.”
