Is Medical Adult Content The Only Adult Content Allowed On This Site?

Please set CLEAR boundaries, that are not open to interpretation, in the terms of service.

PS:
Also, please be fair in drawing those boundaries.
If the argument that children can view such content is ever to be used, then don't apply this argument selectively.

Heyy (: care to chat?

EP permits the sharing of experiences around sexuality and other mature topics. We have adult filters in place to protects minors and ask that members appropriately mark mature content they share as '18+/mature'



That said, there is a difference between mature content and content that violates our terms of service. This is not a site for titillation, ***********, sexual harassment, or sexual solicitation. Advocating sexual behavior towards minors, or promoting behavior generally considered illegal in the United States (such as immediate family ******), is not appropriate, and is subject to removal. Likewise, do NOT send another member unsolicited or unprovoked sexual content.



You can see a full list of our terms of service on the footer of the site.

And those terms of service are sent from above and not open to justification and logical reasoning. Point taken. Thank you for your time.

Elaria,



You make get points and I totally understand where you are coming from. Unfortunately, EP like real life, is not fair or consistent. I one person holds a grudge against another and constantly flags their stuff. EP will remove said person rather than investigate what the issues are.



I have been warned about having nude photos in my stories. What made me mad is the story, which I spent lots of time writing was removed and I had to attempt to rewrite it. Yes I did flag it, but that is not enough. Now, like life, you can have stories of abuse, violence, hate, and bitterness with no issues, but show genitalia, the place freaks out.



It is an unfortunate way life is.

Thanks for your comment nudydude.
I agree that, like life, EP isn't necessarily fair, and that the flagging is very often done based on personal grudges or desire to 'hate/police'.
I'm sorry about your story and the time you spent writing it. I obviously am a bit emotional and can talk about this issue forever, but I don't want to provoke any more debate on the topic. My personal views are not very popular, so I'll keep them to myself.
Thank you for your kind comment.
Bare hugs!

Right on.



"the rules need to be very clearly spelled out, not open to interpretation, and they need to be fair and LOGICAL and not favor different groups of people.": I couldn't agree more.

PS - I don't give a damn about adult content, and never post such content myself.

I just strongly believe in fairness. If this is going to be a self-policing community, the rules need to be very clearly spelled out, not open to interpretation, and they need to be fair and LOGICAL and not favor different groups of people. I hope EP considers values fairness and logic.

So please, Arsineh or EP staff, answer the question in the title/body of this story clearly.

Thank you.
