I have seen child porn on Tumblr, but it is very rare....that is about the crusade of the New Puritans to outlaw all erotic fun.

It does seem like these sjw types are Puritans.

It actually has to do with a law that was passed. H.R.1865 - Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017

They want to limit their exposure to legal troubles.

It seems like pornography in general is a hotbed of legal problems, frankly when you get down to it it's prostitution.

I suspect a lot of the pornography on tumblr was amateur.

This is a lot more complicated than just deleting some hardcore porn from the site; over the past several years Tumblr has become a hub for communities and artists with more adult themes. This has largely been born out of the fact that adult content has been disallowed from other multimedia-focused social platforms. There are bans on nudity and sexual content on Instagram and Facebook, though Twitter has more relaxed standards.

I don’t know how much it needs to be reiterated that child porn is a major issue plaguing the web, but a blanket ban on adult content on a platform that has gathered so many creatives working with NSFW themes is undoubtedly going to be a pretty controversial decision for the company.

Increasingly in the Failing West erotic fun is verboten.

The Feminists dont like it.

Wow, never knew there was porn on Tumblr. Always used Pornhub or Spankbang. Guess I'll have to keep on stroking in the same ol' places.

It didn't help that someone manage to pose some child porn there, also.

There are ways of dealing with that that don't involve taking down every single bit of adult content.

Yes, but the combination of the child porn PLUS the law made them decide to be prudent. It probably killed their business..but heck, the morality police will be happy

Well, now that there's nowhere else on the internets to get porn now, I might as well retire from the online. I guess it's back to glossy magazines.

If you're getting your internet porn from Reddit, you're doing it horribly wrong.

WE USED TO JERK OFF BETTER

Tumblr, the best porn on the internet for at least four years, and I am an expert on the subject.

Kobie, you keep being out of the loop!
