NSFW Rules

A Wiki

As of Jan 2017 GameBanana now allows some NSFW (Not Safe For Work) content. NSFW content must adhere to the rules or risk being immediately flagged, withheld or trashed.

1. Requirements

  1. NSFW submissions must use the NSFW toggle provided.
  2. Real and animated nudity is allowed but no "Sex Acts" should be shown, or implied.
  3. No depictions of under 18's (real or animated). This includes 'Lolita' content where the character is visibly under the age of 18 no matter how old you state they are, as well as characters that are known to be under the age of 18.
  4. No unnecessary closeups.
  5. No bestiality, shock images, etc.
  6. Heavily pornographic images are not allowed. This includes photographic and drawn images that have been clearly made for pornographic reasons.
  7. Mods have discretion to remove any content that they feel is too sexual in nature or inappropriate.

2. What is a "Sex Act"? 

  1. Anything that depicts erotic behavior, or:
  2. Anything intended to cause sexual excitement, or:
  3. Anything pornographic, or:
  4. Anything you might find on a porn site.

2.1. Masturbation 

Hands should not come into contact with genitalia in a manner which is clearly a display of fondling or masturbation.

2.2. Sexual Intercourse

Subjects should not be depicted in a clear display of sexual intercourse. This includes depictions of sexual penetration, oral to genital contact, genital to anal contact, and oral to anal contact without exception. Some depictions of same sex genital to genital contact and some depictions of oral to breast contact might qualify under this guideline as adjudicated by staff but not all will be considered an automatic violation of policy.

2.3. Vaginal, Penile or Anal Penetration

This includes depictions of any object being inserted into the vagina, penis or anus.

2.4. Sexual body fluids

There should be no depiction of semen or vaginal lubricants.

2.5. Erections

There should be no use of imagery depicting an erect penis.

2.6. Vaginal or Anal Spreading

Female subjects should not be depicted with their labia spread or parted in any manner by hand or manipulated open or parted by any other artificial means or object. Neither sex should show the anus manually opened in a similar fashion.

3. Exemptions

Below are specific exemptions:
  • Animated depictions of sex toys not within the context of sex acts (e.g Dildo knife skins would be allowed).
  • Swearing and profanity is generally not necessary to be marked as NSFW.

    Would a gif of a guy doing the "he's a wanker" motion with his hands be counted as a sex act if not in a sexual context?

    Regarding the 5th requirement, I need to ask a question and I NEED it answered because yes

    Is any mod related to furry/anthro characters bestiality?

    I've CERTAINLY created my fair share of my own personal NSFW mods. I'm extremely hesitant to actually upload any of them. I may at some point.

    Does that depict erotic behavior, or is it O.K. and qualifies as harmless pinup?

    I'm asking, because I've implemented it here. And It's also included in my profile guardian.

    I can understand if qualifies as NSFW, because the body language isn't really leaving room for doubts.

    However, it's fine by deviantart's standards and was a fun extra project for my first ever stand alone sfx release here on GB.

    I'd hate to tag my submission as NSFW or remove it and am not keen on making a new version of my profile guardian takes time I don't have.
    I think it depicts erotic behavior and is technically NSFW - if your employer saw this on your computer screen it might be embarrassing. With that said I wouldn't toggle it as NSFW, but some moderators might.

    Shouldn't mark this as NSFW since it has some words that aren't good for kids?

    Just saying, since I don't think kids will upload a naked photo of a woman.
    Everybody should be familiar with the rules, so they can't mark this as NSFW.
