OnlyFans creator ‘jailed for refusing to stay off site’ in Singapore
An OnlyFans creator from Singapore has reportedly been sentenced to three weeks in prison for refusing to stay off the site.
Titus Low, 22, was arrested in December 2021 and charged with two counts of “transmitting obscene materials via electronic means”. He was released on bail under the condition that he would not access his OnlyFans account.
A Singapore court sentenced Low to jail on Tuesday (11 October), claiming he breached the order to stay off OnlyFans while he under investigation under obscenity laws, according to CNN.
Low pled guilty to the charge, and another count of transmitting “obscene material”, and he was fined 3,000 Singapore dollars (around £1,800), according to CNN.
Prosecutors reportedly claimed Low had “undermined police investigations to advance his financial interests” by breaching the order to stay off OnlyFans.
Low is believed to be the first person arrested and charged over OnlyFans in Singapore, where the possession, distribution, or sale of pornographic material is outlawed – while it is not illegal to stream pornography, it is prohibited to download or store it.
Low told CNN on Wednesday (12 October) that he is not ruling out returning to the adult subscription site, despite his sentence.
He said: “It wouldn’t be fair if the ban stayed. I love what I do and it’s what I’m known for. My nudes are out there already.
“But that is also the nature of OnlyFans. Creators have little control over our material being leaked or recirculated without our knowledge and that is not something I can control, but I will definitely be more careful going forward.”
The OnlyFans creator previously addressed his December 2021 arrest in a video online, claiming that everything he had created and sent online was “consensual”.
“We only create content for people who are our age and wish to have content they want to see. And all this is on the basis of everything is consensual,” he said in the video.
“We don’t force you to watch our content, we don’t force you to pay, it’s not open for public consumption, and if I don’t impede on your life and your lifestyle.
“To the person who reported me, why are you impeding in mine?”
As well as pornography laws, Singapore has previously criminalised gay sex, with prime minister Lee Hsien Loong announcing in August that the colonial-era law will be repealed.
Introduced in the 1930s under British colonial rule, the law (Section 377A) criminalised consensual sex between men, and has been debated for decades in Singapore.
Referencing a 2007 decision to not repeal the law, but also not to “proactively enforce” it, the prime minister said in August: “It would have been too divisive to force the issue then… Now, 15 years later, attitudes have shifted appreciably. While we remain a broadly conservative society, gay people are now better accepted in Singapore, especially among younger Singaporeans.
“Private sexual behaviour between consenting adults does not raise any law and order issue.
“There’s no justification to prosecute people for it, nor to make it a crime… The government will repeal Section 377A and decriminalise sex between men.”
The Singapore government, however, has stated that it has no plans to lift its current ban on same-sex marriage.
