Facebook Bans Any Mention of Sex, including erotic art, sexual slang, or even Vague Suggestive Statements

Desperate to avoid more criticism, the World's Most Visited Site goes Victorian on Sex

 

December 26, 2018

"When correctly viewed, everything is lewd. I can tell you things about Peter Pan, or the Wizard of Oz. There's a Dirty Old Man!" Tom Lehrer

Friends don't let other friends have sex, apparently.

In the wake of declining values of its stock and criticisms of its true worthiness as a waste of time, Facebook.com has now specifically banned "sexual slang" as well as any hint of "sexual roles, positions or fetish scenarios".

Don't be visitng the world's most popular website if you are "looking for a good time tonight," because precisely that phrase will get you banned, reports the UK Sun. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7935520/facebook-bans-users-who-talk-about-their-sex-lives-in-crackdown-on-anything-that-encourages-sexual-encounters/.

wrote: "Facebook's new 'sexual solicitation' policy is horrifying. It bans, among other things, erotic art (even non-explicit), talking about kink, talking about your boobs or butt, mentioning your preferences in sexual partners, 'sexualized slang,' and 'vague suggestive statements.'"

Clearly, Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg and CFO Sheryl Sandberg are desperate to avoid additional criticism. They have been criticized for accepting Russian election advertising, and for debasing the morals of American (and foreign) youth.

Anyway, here are the new "Community standards," from https://www.facebook.com/communitystandards/sexual_solicitation :

"Do not post:

Content that attempts to coordinate or recruit for adult sexual activities including but not limited to:

Filmed sexual activities

Pornographic activities, strip club shows, live sex performances, erotic dances

Content (hand drawn, digital, or real-world art) that may depict explicit sexual activity or suggestively posed person(s).
