OnlyFans content creator Titus Low Kaide was arrested in Singapore on Dec. 30 for “transmitting obscene materials,” causing fear among other creators based in the Southeast Asian country.
Low, 22, was charged on two counts after Singaporean police received reports that he “transmitted images and videos of his private parts.”
He was also charged under the Criminal Procedure Code after reportedly resisting a police order not to log on to his OnlyFans page, according to the Straits Times.
Although consuming porn in Singapore is not an offense, it is illegal to possess or download pornographic material, even for personal use. Gay sex is also outlawed in the country.
Low posted a video on YouTube to recount the events leading up to his arrest.
“We only create content for people who are our age and wish to have content they want to see,” he explained. “And all this is on the basis of everything is consensual.”
“So 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?” Low continued.
“’Til today, I don’t know who made the report, and I don’t know why,” he went on. “I mean, it’s OnlyFans. I have to create specific content for specific adults. We are both willing like buyer and seller.”
Low told Mothership in October that there are risks of creating an OnlyFans page.
“I don’t know how to tackle [the legal] situation, [and I’m] not even sure if it’s [legal] to do OnlyFans,” he said.
Low’s OnlyFans account, which he claims has made him a five-figure salary as an income per month, is currently not taking any further subscriptions.
He is set to go to court on Jan. 20 and could face up a three-month jail sentence and a fine for the two counts of transmitting obscene materials by electronic means. Low could also face up to six months and a $5,000 fine under the Criminal Procedure Code.
