SINGAPORE - OnlyFans user Titus Low Kaide, whose sexually explicit images had been found on the online content platform, appeared in a district court on Thursday (Dec 30) after he allegedly continued to access his account despite the authorities warning him not to do so.

The Singaporean, who is known for his sexually explicit videos on OnlyFans and has more than 160,000 followers on Instagram as at Thursday morning, was charged with two counts of transmitting obscene materials by electronic means.

He was also handed a charge under the Criminal Procedure Code as he had allegedly failed to comply with a police order not to access his OnlyFans account.

He is now accused of offences linked to obscene materials.

OnlyFans is a site where members can share adult content.

Low, 22, is believed to be the platform's first content creator in Singapore to be prosecuted for transmitting obscene materials on it.

According to court documents, Low is said to have uploaded multiple obscene materials - 32 photographs and 29 videos - on one of his OnlyFans accounts between April and October this year.

The police later told him to stop accessing the account but he allegedly failed to comply with the order in October.

Low is also accused of uploading more obscene materials - three photographs and five videos - onto his other OnlyFans account that month.

In a statement on Wednesday, the police said they received a report on Sept 4 alleging that Low had transmitted images and videos of his private parts using his OnlyFans account.

On Oct 11, the police seized the account and served him an order under the Criminal Procedure Code. As part of the order, Low was told not to access the account.

The police added: "(He) was warned at the time when the order was served that a breach of the order would amount to a criminal offence.

"Despite that, (he) allegedly wrote in to the OnlyFans administrators, claiming that his account was not secured, and a password reset was done."

Low later regained access to the account and is said to have continued to electronically transmit more obscene materials using it and a secondary account.

On Nov 1, he was served with a fresh order under the Criminal Procedure Code not to access both OnlyFans accounts.

The police said they are conducting further investigations into possible fresh offences including a further breach of the order served last month.

They added: "The police would like to remind the public that it is illegal under the Penal Code to transmit any obscene materials by electronic means.

"It is also against the law to take part in or receive profits from any business where obscene materials are transmitted by electronic means or advertise the sale of obscene materials. Members of the public may wish to lodge a police report if they are aware of persons engaging in such activities."

Low’s bail was set at $5,000 on Thursday and his case has been adjourned to Jan 20 next year.

For each count of transmitting obscene materials by electronic means, an offender can be jailed for up to three months and fined.

And for the offence under the Criminal Procedure Code, an offender can be for up to six months and fined up to $5,000.
