#1 Tumblr Porn - Bye Bye!

Post by fountainhall » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:09 am

I wonder how many around the world open up tumblr sites for one reason and only one - porn. Well, guys and gals, lap it up while it lasts because the end is nigh. From December 17, tumblr will ban all porn on all its sites.
Banned content includes photos, videos, and GIFs of human genitalia, female-presenting nipples, and any media involving sex acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include nude classical statues and political protests that feature nudity. The new guidelines exclude text, so erotica remains permitted. Illustrations and art that feature nudity are still okay — so long as sex acts aren’t depicted
I don't know any other reason for visiting tumblr. I have no idea what other content it offers. My gut feel is that tumblr will die. However, it seems there may still be a way of viewing 'adult' content -
Posts with porn content will be set to private, which will prevent them from being reblogged or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community.

I'm not sure what this means. Even though reflagging and sharing will be banned, presumably no one can ban screen shots.

My other thought is that anyone who has been collecting thousands of tumblr photos may eventually be able to offer them somewhere and make some money :o

Why do I have a feeling those who enjoy porn will manage to find all they want elsewhere?

For those of us fortunate enough to live in Thailand - who needs porn in the first place, especially since many of the guys who pose for photos, or easily could, are perfectly willing and readily available to come right to your door?

Somehow I doubt they are anxious to go to anyone living on the “Dark Side”.....Too much hassle too many cheap falangs.

Is that so? Fine with me. Doubt all you want and believe what you want.

Tumblr is the best site going for such fine artistic material

There was one site which featured great artistic photos of guys from Taiwan - Blue Man. Its main site is one selling photo books of the models. Most photos are not pornographic - merely great-looking naked young guys. But its photos were often available on some tumblr sites. No more.

I wonder if tumblr is now in its death throes?

Not pornographic? I wonder if Mike Pence would agree with you about that . . .

That jerk will no doubt think a carton of milk is pornographic - because it makes him think of women's' breasts! Either that or a cow's udder which kind of looks like uncircumcised penises of four boys rather too close together! Both in his warped mind will be the Devil's creations!

Tumblr was great but not been on it since the porn was circumcised from the site. Well tbh I did try a couple of times to see if there was anything worthwhile but alas no joy. Won't be trying again unless I hear it's picked up again. Any other suggestions for porn pics?

Perhaps Pence might find this more acceptable . . .
