Facebook’s Strict New Adult Content Rules

The internet seems to be getting more hostile to adult content with each passing day. Shortly after Tumblr announced their porn ban, Facebook quietly changed their guidelines to be extremely stringent, worrying many activists not only for adult performers and sex workers in general, but also advocates for the queer and trans communities and those who appreciate free speech. The new guidelines for adult content prohibit people from discussing sexuality, and anything that might seem like trying to get sex from someone (not professionally, just trying to hook up like people do sometimes!)

The language is very specific as to what it will not allow. Certain points include: “Vague suggestive statements such as: ‘looking for a good time tonight.’”, and “Using sexual hints such as mentioning sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, sexual preference/sexual partner preference, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), commonly sexualized areas of the body including breasts, groin or buttocks, state of hygiene of genitalia or buttocks.” This is really scary for people who want to communicate about their states to the world. Based on these guidelines, it would be against the terms of service to say, “Hey I am a lesbian, I like to date women.” Let alone trying to cruise or use Facebook as a way to meet people to date in your local community. Later on Facebook did put out a blog post to clarify their stance, they say that you actually can say your sexual orientation, but you can’t do anything that would be seen as coordinating a sexual encounter between adults.

Obviously this type of strict porn ban hurts porn sites and performers too, although FB was never very friendly adult content or performers at all. It is also just not good for anyone. Facebook is one of the main ways people communicate. You might have a chat over FB Messenger with your boo or your crush, and you might want to get a little fresh. Now you have to watch what you say or you could risk your account getting shut down. You can’t comment on your bae’s cute FB picture saying how much you want to smash her when you get home from work. This restriction is just not good for the sexual pleasure of consenting adults! Luckily there are still plenty of porn sites and dating sites where adult talk is still allowed, but many people have a bad feeling about all these new adult content bans taking place.

As porn lovers and porn fans, we feel that sexual pleasure is just an innate part of life, and everyone should be able to get a little nookie every now and again or at least talk about it and have the possibility of hooking up with someone that you have a crush on. These porn and adult content bans keep people from getting sexual pleasure and we just don’t understand it. So, if you’re frustrated by it, keep watching porn and finding the top porn sites here!
