“ I guess we all owe it to ourselves to have a purpose in life and to use what we have to leave a legacy, create something.”
Are you a content creator or business in the adult industry trying to bring more traffic to your platform and promote it safely? Then look no further! Myonly.chat is a premium Telegram service that helps content creators or businesses sell access to their Telegram channels. It’s a subscription and tip-based, adult-friendly and safe to promote on any social media. Overall, a service that empowers content creators.
We had the pleasure to meet Andra Chirnogeanu, myonly.chat CEO, who gave us more details and insights of their recently launched app.
How did you come up with the idea to create myonly.chat?
I’ve worked in the adult industry for the last 6 years and all these years I´ve encouraged performers to take control of their content and their social media. When myonly.chat started, the idea behind it was ¨let´s do something that doesn’t put us in competition with anyone but can help everyone make more money¨. We´re not a platform, we´re providing a service, a way to make MORE money from your content, to bring more traffic to your platform, to promote it safely. I want everyone to win and it saddens me to see that in an industry so small, people are so divided.
What is the difference between myonly.chat and other similar services?
As mentioned before, myonly.chat doesn´t store content. The content is diverse, from text messages to audio, photo and video. 100% payout, the 24/7 support from our account managers, and the fact that this is not ANOTHER platform, but a service where you can monetize the content you already have. There’s also the fact that Telegram is an app that’s safe to promote on social media, it’s available for both Mac and PC, and most devices running Mac or Android.
An added benefit is push notifications, which, unlike browser notifications where fans have to opt-in, Telegram has native push right to your fan’s mobile device or laptop. And if creators needed more reasons to use the myonly.chat service, there’s also the fact that they can stream exclusive shows to their fans.
What are the goals of My Only Chat?
We´re looking at perfecting the service, making it easy to use for everyone that wants to join. The goal has always been to make people monetize what they’re good at. There is no one like you out there, and that’s something to celebrate and get money from. Nothing in this world is for free, why would your content be?
Where do you see myonly.chat in 2 years?
Hopefully fully adopted on every site that provides services, offer them our API and white label to use as a new revenue stream for their users and models.
Do you think that being a female CEO brings along more benefits, or more disadvantages?
I´ve never been a male CEO, so I wouldn´t know the difference. Timothy Leary said ¨Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.¨ In all seriousness, I believe any executive position comes with challenges and it´s a matter of personality, rather than sex how one deals with those challenges.
I don’t compare myself to anyone, as no one is me, or goes through what I went through, or had my background, struggles, privileges etc. I guess we all owe it to ourselves to have a purpose in life and to use what we have to leave a legacy, create something.
I´ll be foolish not to use all that I have, as a man would use physical power in certain situations, let’s say, I’d use my wits or smile. That just proves you know how to work and take advantage of your differences rather than seeing them as a disadvantage.
How many content creators do you currently have signed in?
At the moment we’re doing this interview, at the end of August, the number of creators using our service is 103.
Was it difficult to redirect people’s attention to a new platform?
For sure it takes time, and myonly.chat has just started a few months ago. People were very curious and wanted to try it, to see how it works. We´re changing, adapting, improving every week, seeing what works and what doesn´t, while keeping our principles about what the creators should get from it. We don’t want to redirect them as in choosing a unique platform to be on; we encourage creators to sell their content and have their ¨eggs¨ in as many baskets as possible.
How hard is it to start your business in these uncertain times?
Starting a business is easy, everyone can do it. Keeping a business going and making it successful (this is different for everyone) is the tricky part. You have to be patient, passionate, and not too proud to ask for help. We make mistakes when we think we know
Tell us a few words about MyOnly.Chat’s CEO.
I get up every morning and I take a few moments to pray. I´m not a religious person by any means. Praying is my time of giving thanks to being awake and healthy, able to do what I love, have people that I love in my life, and being overall happy. This is not something that people know about me and I believe it’s the first time I’m talking about it in an interview.
My career in the adult industry started 6 years ago because I was stubborn to get into something I knew nothing about and learn about it. The reason why I accepted the MOC offer was that it was a challenge to learn more about something I didn’t know. This is myonly.chat´s CEO in a few words: grateful, curious and ambitious.

Tumblr and why the porn-friendly era of the internet is over?
Matt Mullenweg, the chief executive of Tumblr parent company Automattic said that the “casually porn-friendly era of the early internet is currently impossible” as he looked to explain why Tumblr and other sites will never go back to freely available adult content.
After widespread and inaccurate speculation that Tumblr would lift its ban on adult content, Mullenweg posted a long explanation of why Tumblr will never go back to the old days. The internet has fundamentally change its stance on pornography, the head of Tumblr has said.
Tumblr was once known for lax attitudes towards pornography that helped make it one of the most popular sites on the internet. But in 2018, new owner Verizon banned such content, introducing restrictive rules that kept it off the platform.
Why is returning to that era impossible?
For now, it’s largely because of intermediaries that play a massive role in how people access the web. Payment processors have long been leery of adult content, and they’ve stepped up enforcement in recent years, in part because of concerns about child abuse and non-consensual pornography. Apple’s iOS App Store has been staunchly opposed to it since launch. And without those two pieces of infrastructure, running a for-profit site is incredibly difficult. “If Apple permanently banned Tumblr from the App Store, we’d probably have to shut the service down,” Mullenweg noted. Some non-profit sites that do allow things like explicit artwork have remained persistently web-only despite years of requests for apps.
Meanwhile, porn companies have their own stack of payment processing services, but they’re typically far more expensive — something that nearly got adult performers banned from the subscription platform OnlyFans last year.
The issue is compounded by new rules about age verification and anti-sex work laws like FOSTA-SESTA. Some of these laws are meant to combat unambiguously harmful phenomena like non-consensual pornography, but they also add substantial legal oversight.
Why can both Reddit and Twitter, fairly unusually for modern social networks, allow a lot of porn?
“Ask Apple, because I don’t know,” says Mullenweg. He speculates that Twitter and Reddit are both too big to ban, although Apple has forced moderation changes even for giant services like Facebook.
The overall upshot:
“If you wanted to start an adult social network in 2022, you’d need to be web-only on iOS and side-load on Android, take payment in crypto, have a way to convert crypto to fiat for business operations without being blocked, do a ton of work in age and identity verification and compliance so you don’t go to jail, protect all of that identity information so you don’t dox your users, and make a ton of money.”
Could TikTok turn into the new Only Fans?
TikTok is once again updating its livestreaming features, and this time the biggest improvements affect the people who can’t watch. For starters, the upgrade now lets TikTok Live users host adult-only broadcasts. If a stream is likely to include lots of colorful language or tackle traumatic subjects, you can make sure the audience is mature enough to handle it. The option will be available in the “coming weeks.” And no, it’s not an officially sanctioned alternative to OnlyFans — TikTok’s policies still forbid sexually explicit content.
However, people are speculating that TikTok could soon turn into an OnlyFans alternative after the platform announced the new “adults only” feature for live broadcasting.
TikTok rose to huge popularity during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns across the world.
While its user base is mainly comprised of Gen Z, it appears to the app is hoping to draw more of an adult audience after announcing it’s raising the age of those who can live broadcast to adults and is introducing an adult-only viewer option.
According to the Chinese-owned platform, the new feature is being brought in to protect its younger users and could be used to stream comedy routines with strong language or broadcast videos with more complex or “difficult” subject matter.
TikTok announced: “In the coming weeks, we plan to introduce a new way for creators to choose if they’d prefer to only reach an adult audience in their LIVE.
“For instance, perhaps a comedy routine is better suited for people over age 18. Or, a host may plan to talk about a difficult life experience and they would feel more comfortable knowing the conversation is limited to adults.
“We want our community to make the most of the opportunities LIVE can bring without compromising on safety.”
