Adult Content

Basics


Is adult-oriented content allowed on Tumblr?

Sure. We have no problem with that kind of stuff. Go nuts. Show nuts. Whatever.

What should I do if I don't want to see adult-oriented content?

For material on your dashboard, you should be judicious about who you choose to follow. If someone posts stuff you don’t want to see, whether it’s adult-oriented or not, don’t follow them. If you don’t want to see anything overtly sexual in your search results, just click the padlock in the upper-right corner. As long as it says “Hiding adult-oriented content,” you’re good. If a questionable post happens to sneak through, please do everyone a favor and flag it.

My blog contains adult-oriented content; what should I do?

If your blog contains nudity or adult-oriented content, please respect the choices of the people in our community and flag your blog as “adult-oriented” on your Settings page.

What happens to blogs that are flagged NSFW?

  • Logged-in users won’t see those posts in their search results if they’re hiding adult-oriented content.
  • Logged-out users won’t see those posts in their search results, period.

 

Troubleshooting


I think my blog was flagged by mistake; who can I contact?

If you think your blog was inappropriately flagged (or if was appropriately flagged, but you have since removed the adult-oriented content), file a report with our Trust & Safety team with the following information:

  • The email address you used to register your account.
  • The URL of the blog you're asking about.
  • A detailed explanation of why you think the blog was mistakenly flagged or should be unflagged.
