The Great PAWG Migration: Why Reddit Is the New Home of Ass Content

As Instagram becomes even stricter about flesh, adult content creators looking to promote their OnlyFans have made niche subreddits their home

It’s not easy finding ass on Instagram anymore. Sure, you might still be able to post it yourself, or continue to follow a selection of women with the wagon, but gone are the days of the high-level ass-curation account. In previous years, accounts like @buttsnorkeler and @whitegirlsevolving (whose names have since changed) embodied coveted Instagram real estate. Women, particularly PAWGs (phat-ass white girls), would often pay to be posted on such accounts, or otherwise get lucky and have their photos shared. Either way, appearing on them almost guaranteed a surge of new followers and the opportunities that can come with them, from brand deals to lucrative OnlyFans accounts. But this ass economy has all but collapsed — except on PAWG Reddit. 

PAWG Reddit: What Happened to Instagram?

As Instagram becomes increasingly puritanical, most of these large accounts have been deleted. Attempts at re-creating them have come up short: Keeping the account private makes it less likely to be taken down, but it also slows growth. Without the hundreds of thousands of followers or ability to appear on Explore pages, they no longer have the clout they did before. As such, there’s far less incentive for women looking to build a paying fanbase to pay to appear on butt-centric accounts, especially when Reddit offers similar opportunities for free.

On PAWG Reddit, just about anyone can promote their content for free and on their own terms. Though some subreddits require certain protocols before someone can post and have 18+ restrictions, there’s little chance of Reddit deleting erotic photos unless they break laws. For that reason, Reddit has become one of the primary places for adult content creators to promote their work. 

The Best of PAWG Reddit, From FrogButt to BigAsses

This is especially true for people who promote according to a specific niche. Per RedditList.com, there are nearly 800 NSFW subreddits with at least 3,000 members each. Beyond the classics like r/GoneWild, r/NSFW and r/RealGirls, some of the most popular subreddits focus upon particular pornographic niches like PAWGs. r/PAWG is itself the 25th most popular NSFW subreddit, with 879,000 members. Before posting, women must be “verified” by the mods by sending in multiple photos utilizing specific poses to prove their PAWG-iness, as well as a photo proving their identity. Once in, though, the subreddit seems to be a boon. Almost all the women who post either watermark their photos with their OnlyFans username, or direct users to a link in their Reddit bio. 

Other NSFW groups like r/asstastic, r/thick and r/bigasses feature similar PAWG content. There’s also r/hungrybutts, r/upvotebecausebutt, r/hotbutts, r/booty_queens and r/frogbutt. Some prohibit explicit advertising in the form of OnlyFans watermarks or directing users to their profiles where an OnlyFans link is listed. Nevertheless, were it not beneficial for content creators to post in these groups, it’s unlikely they would.

The PAWG OnlyFans Funnel

An added bonus to promoting OnlyFans content for PAWGs on Reddit is the option of greater anonymity. Many of the women don’t show their face at all. Though this doesn’t guarantee they won’t somehow be outed to their family or otherwise identified, it still offers a layer of distance between adult work and the everyday self for those who want it. 

The biggest benefit of PAWG Reddit, though, is that while there may be some rules and restrictions in place, the platform is far less prudish than Instagram. Though a few model-centric, vaguely erotic accounts still exist on the Gram, they often seem run by bots. One account, for example, @townbabez, has over 2 million followers and regularly posts bikini and lingerie photos of voluptuous women. The accounts tagged in the photos, however, often belong to different women entirely. 

This all points to another growing rift between Instagram’s overall ethos/aesthetic and the current desires of adult content consumers — that is, Instagram feels largely fake in a time when people are increasingly in search of authentic pornographic work. Thus, Reddit has become the central site of this new type of self-advertisement. Though subreddit moderators may function similarly to the Instagram account owners of years prior, the exchange of adult content on Reddit remains largely between the creators and consumers themselves. Now, OnlyFans fame isn’t simply for the women who’ve been able to build an Instagram following utilizing ass-repost accounts before their demise — instead, the PAWGs need only post to their designated subreddit. The fans will come to them.
