Pr0n everywhere!

Surely this is so off-putting for new residents to SL? This sh&& would make me want to log out straight away...

For comparison, have you logged in with an account that does not have adult content enabled? Just curious.

You know what... I didn't even see that option enabled! Hahaha - just out of curiosity, if you're adult verified, by default, do you automatically see adult related content?

Probably if you verify, but shouldn't be immediately for new signups. That said, I know it's off-putting to a lot of older residents too, they keep the adult option off for that reason.

People like sex
Give people the option to make shit, they make sex shit


Annoying distasteful or whatever -sex shit is the canary in the coalmine.

Tacky? Sure

But the ability to make it and sell it is a sign of health. Restrict that and you open up a big ole can of unexpected consequences.

Also if anyone can't hang with some tackiness on MP then they're gonna flip their shit once they go inworld.


So, yeah. I might not like it, but I like all the alternatives less.

Pretty sure the ability to see adult content in search and Marketplace is based on your in-world maturity setting.

(Mine's set to "Immature")

I do feel a bit weird about opening Search and immediately being hit by what's sometimes quite explicit porn, but turning off Adult content would lock stuff out of search that just happens to be on adult land, right? So I just sort of put up with it.

Probably wouldn't open Search in public though, or in front of a friend who wasn't in the know.

I engage in occasional light bdsm and make an odd rlv toy or two to pass among friends, but I very rarely have the adult setting on.

It's just ... tacky. Too much dreck.

For every St. Andrew's cross in the form of a decorative "wall art" butterfly or dragonfly with stained glass wings, there are 100 butt-ugly dark splintery wood crosses in dark dungeons. For every imaginative sex bed in the form of a woundrous bubble floating in the clouds or a clever oyster or nautilus shell in a hidden cove there are 100 with brass rails, ceiling mirrors and ... I've gone on long enough, you get the drift.

I'm no CSI:SL type but looking at your provided picture, I can easily see the Maturity spot right under the search window. All three options, G, M, A are checked. In case you did not know, they stand for General, Mature, Adult. So if you have it checked (enabled) and see adult content, you have no ground to stand on to act all shocked and surprised that you're GASP seeing adult content.


That's like going to a museum and being shocked they have old stuff on display! Or Barnes&Noble and being upset they have magazines for sale when the sign clearly said books and made no mention of magazines, or toys, or coffee...


Also who are you to decide what is off putting to new users? Maybe it isn't your cup of tea, untick the A box, problem solved.



Also, did it really make you want to log out straight away? And did you log out? Or did you tough it out and kept on SLing?

I'd love to have a (X - Don't show me this ad again) to help filter if we can't have a breakdown of what you want to see in Adult. Adult- Horror; Adult- Porn; Adult- Softcore; Adult- Kink; Adult- Violence

I have had my sim right in the middle of Kama City, Zindra, for over a year now.
Those busy adult locations? Some of them are my neighbors, and really, they are just everyday people, from the managers down to your every day prole sex workers.

What cannot be tolerated can be easily muted and derendered. "Adult SL" isn't so different. When walking around the city at peak hours there are also a lot of non-pornified home owners and mundane conversation that are in "Adult SL".

My only complaint is there has been an influx of ultra violent "Snuff" and mutilation fetishes. If it gets too invasive and disturbing, what can't be derendered and muted can always be AR'd.

I think there’s a big difference between having adult search turned on and having explicit content thrown in your face the second you open the window. I don't get porn when I open a Google window, despite SafeSearch being off... why do I in SL? In my opinion, you should not see explicit classifieds or events unless you search for explicit keywords. That would solve this problem while leaving everyone free to search for whatever content they want.

The other issue is ratings creep where people think they need to buy adult land just because they want to have sex in their house. That is not the case, you only need it if you have an adult business or club, something that caters to the public. But many people buy adult land anyway, so to find a lot of not really adult places in SL you still have to turn on adult search. And then you end up getting toilet and torture links and other things you really don’t want to see.
