Days after his arrest and sentencing in court, Singapore’s highest-paid adult content creator took to TikTok to speak to his fans and take stock of his well-being.
In September, police received a report that Titus Low had transmitted “obscene material” from his “private parties” to OnlyFans, a subscription social media platform known to host erotic content. The 22-year-old was indicted in court on December 30 with two counts of transmitting obscene material electronically for uploading 32 photographs and 29 videos to his OnlyFans account between April and October 2021. He also has was charged with violating an order by authorities in October to stay out of his OnlyFans account.
According to the indictment sheets, Low wrote to the administrators of OnlyFans to have his password reset so he could access the account, uploading three more photos and five videos to the account in October. The investigation against Low is still ongoing, with his trial scheduled for January 20. If convicted of the charges, Low faces a jail term of up to three months, a fine, or both.
“I’m still fine guys,” Low captioned a 14-second TikTok video posted Jan. 2 where he was seen alone, dancing to a song in a Lamborghini. The video has garnered over 50,000 likes and has been shared over a thousand times. Hundreds of comments have also come from those who encourage Low to “be strong” while criticizing the accusations.
the Straits Times The newspaper reported on December 31 that Low had withdrawn from an upcoming local male beauty pageant because of his accusations.
Sex and sexuality remain largely taboo in Singapore, where the production of porn, gay sex, and public nudity are illegal. But a significant number of Singaporeans have turned to OnlyFans to make their mark and reshape the porn industry in the conservative city-state.
Despite the repressive climate, the site has a notable presence in Singapore and its popularity increased during the early stages of the pandemic. At the start of last year, there were some 150 content creators on the site, a sizable number in a country where the local porn industry remains virtually non-existent. Content creators operate in a gray area because under Singaporean law the sale of âobsceneâ content is technically illegal. But the law is selectively enforced, and Low is the first OnlyFans content creator to be sued in the country.
Low garnered huge following on Instagram and OnlyFans, where he became Singapore’s highest paid male erotic content creator. In an interview with the Rice medium An online portal after his initial ban from the site in October, he spoke of his fame and the backlash that often accompanied it, saying his critics had “brought the police” to his door.
âOne of my enemies reported to the police. When they knocked on the door [in October] I was very confused. They asked me: are you aware that your nudes are circulating online? “, did he declare.
“The police seemed very concerned that this was spreading through WhatsApp and Twitter, over which I have no control as haters continue to leak my content.”
