Adult Content - Forbidden on BigFooty

There seems to be confusion over the role of advertiser and publisher:

* The publisher provides a place where any advertiser can show ads. The ad networks - there are hundreds - then work up from there.

* We have some control over ads and ad categories. If you see an ad that concerns you please send a screen grab and URL to


The biggest issue it seems is "sexually gratifying" material.

Acknowledging the existence of sex and sexuality isn't the biggest issue, it's the PHWOOAARR element - that's the best way I can describe it.

We understand that it can be confusing to work out what is and isn't OK. But keep it clean, don't post pictures of bikinis, cleavage, or the like. Don't post pictures of injuries. Real or cartoon.

Just keep it safe for work, as the site rules have always aimed for.

If you can steer clear of these things we are 99% of the way there:

* images of a "sexually gratifying" nature,
* wound, injury, disease and other gory images,
* racist and derogatory posts, violent posts,
* drug talk, and illegal stuff like that.

This one is the new one, and probably what has people confused:
  • sexual health advice related to pregnancy, childbirth, or family planning
We will work out how to block Google ads from the specific threads where this is being discussed in the BF community. There are a few, and our users find them valuable so we will work a way around them.

The Site Rules/Terms of Use:

BigFooty runs on money from advertisers including - mainly from Google.

We have our rules on pictures of people in states of undress:

Posting those images in your posts or in your avatar will see them removed and your privileges curtailed. Pictures of nudity and sex acts will see your account banned.

We have always had rules against adult content, but this is starting to seep back in to some threads and boards.

Please be warned!

Adult content like the following should not be posted on BigFooty. Not even ironically. You may lose your account.

TLDR, the main stuff we see around the site:

* Nudity, near nudity, strategically covered nudity - including cartoons.
* Discussions about sex lives and performance, sexually transmitted disease and so on.
* Derogatory use of sexual words for people, players etc.
* Racist and hateful posts.
* Injuries and gore.

These are already part of the BigFooty rules, but some members have been posting it anyway.

Full info here - including a video:

Nudity and pornography
Google ads may not be placed on pages that contain nudity or pornography. Examples include, but are not limited to, pages with images, videos, or descriptions containing:
  • pornographic images, videos, or games
  • pornographic cartoons or anime (hentai/ecchi)
  • nudity

Sexually gratifying content
Google ads may not be placed on content that is sexually suggestive and/or intended to cause sexual arousal. Examples of content that may be considered sexually gratifying include, but are not limited to:
  • close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches
  • sheer or see-through clothing or lingerie
  • strategically covered nudity (includes situations in which genitals are blurred out by camera) - So no posting leaked images of footy players. You know the ones we mean.
  • images of men or women posing and/or undressing in a seductive manner

Fetishes and sexual aids
Google ads may not be placed on pages that promote, sell, or discuss sexual fetishes, aids, devices, or enhancement tools.

A fetish may be an obsession or sexual desire in which gratification is dependent upon specific objects (diapers, food items, etc.), materials (leather, latex, etc), parts of a body (feet, toes, ears, etc.), or situations. Examples of types of fetishes and fetishistic practices may include, but are not limited to:

  • bestiality, necrophilia, incest, and voyeurism
  • role-playing, bondage, dominance and submission
  • sadomasochism, snuff
Google may consider something to be a sexual aid, device, or enhancement tool if it is used for sexual pleasure and/or to improve sexual experiences. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • sexual toys such as vibrators, dildos, personal lubricants
  • penis and breast enlargement tools and/or medications
    Note: Certain medications used to treat conditions like erectile dysfunction fall under our prescription drug policy.

Examples of comment spam include, but are not limited to: random sentences and/or portions of sentences to forum posts that have been copied and pasted from other sources, random and/or nonsensical words, and phrases that are unrelated to the topic.

While we understand the challenges of monitoring user-generated content, we require publishers to monitor the pages upon which ad code appears. Please visit the user-generated content section of our Help Center for recommended solutions to police your content.

You got it.
I'm genuinely not trying to be a smart arse here, but does this mean we can't link news articles covering this too ( for instance has the video and all quotes listed in its articles today on the NY stripper tape)?

I get keeping the gratuitous stuff off line, but not being able to reference or discuss it full stop will severely limit some of these discussions. For instance we would probably have to pass on the trump tape 100%

Chief how does this effect news discussions like Trumps audio tape, PHON at the strippers, pee pee tape, and so on?

According to this list, we can't discuss the details anymore if we are strictly following this list.
Look, it’s not forbidden to discuss news and the like. But if you’re trying to elicit a PHWOOOOARRR from people, you’re on shaky ground.
