Skip navigation! Story from Porn For Women. After Tumblr announced that starting on December 17, it'll ban porn and adult content from its blogs, many scrambled to find suitable alternatives. The ban — made in response to child pornography being found on the site — will cover photos, GIFs, and videos that show real human genitals, "female-presenting" nipples, or sex acts written erotica will still be permitted. Despite the intention behind this ban, quite a few people on Twitter have zeroed in on the fact that, in a matter of two weeks, they'll suddenly be without their favorite source of porn and NSFW content. Luckily, Tumblr isn't the only place on the internet where you can find not-so-mainstream, ethical, and feminist porn. And you needn't limit yourself to video content, either.

But there must be a reason so many people are using Tumblr for porn , and I wanted to figure out what it was. Unfortunately, when I asked my young cool friends, they basically laughed in my face. It's a massive improvement on the homepages of most porn sites , which often have a mishmash of recently-posted videos clips that assault your eyes which you can never un-see.

Later, he posted it again. Then again. All four of Vintrove's posts were flagged by Tumblr as "sensitive" content, meaning the platform's algorithm had decided his posts were in violation of its "porn ban" enacted one year ago , on December 17, Under Tumblr's new policy , users are not allowed to post any not-safe-for-work NSFW content: that includes nudity, pornography, and media showing "real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples.
