Patreon enabled a variety of makers in the adult space to earn money in return of the erotic material they’ve made. But a recent change to the site’s conduct policies, occurred on October 17th that threatened many pornographers, who rely upon the site for revenue, to shut down their business.

But in response to this action Dozens of adult content creators have signed an open note to Patreon challenging all the provisions it has published on the making of pornography. The most highlighted part of the letter states: “We know people who would be homeless if it wasn’t for making porn on Patreon – and it’s not a small number. Your fuzzy position on ‘adult content’ versus ‘porn’ gives you the freedom to discriminate at will. And it makes content creators live in fear of that discrimination, itself leading to self-censorship of important viewpoints.”

On this warning Patreon’s chief executive has responded via a tweet.
