Policy on Pornography, Adult Content and Nudity

We believe in freedom of expression and Ning, as a broad-based service, is designed to respect many different perspectives and enable them to co-exist seamlessly and effortlessly. With that said, we do not permit pornography, adult content or nudity. To clarify what we define as adult content, nudity or pornography, networks that contain the following would clearly NOT be allowed:

  • Depictions or images of sexual acts or implied sexual activity
  • Nudity (exposed or see-though coverage of areas typically covered by a bathing suit or underwear)
  • Graphic photos or videos
  • Fetishes

Assuming the content mentioned above is not included, the following are examples of topics and content that would NOT be classified as adult content, nudity or pornography:

  • Ning Networks for heterosexual, gay, lesbian or transgender individuals
  • Breast Feeding networks, provided that there is no visible nipple or areola
  • Educational networks promoting safe sex

We recognize that the actions of one member do not reflect the intentions of an entire network or the Network Creator, however, we ask that you please take advantage of the many tools built in to your network to ensure that all of the content and members on your network fit within our rules, and yours!
