    ok so this is kind of a vauge question but im basically just wondering is nsfw always 18+ and what counts as NSFW

    is a objective, desexualized conversation about sexuality or kinks (like just stating you have them) considered lewd? what about nudity and stuff? and im assuming general discussion about what is nsfw is considered not nsfw. sorry im kind of socially awkward and also that kind of stuff works very differently where im from so its in general really hard and culture clashy for me to determine what is innapropriate

    basically i wanna know if discussing your sexuality without sexting and stuff is considered 18 plus on this forum because it tends to vary a lot from place to place and im in general very confused on terms and personally like having them be clarified

    also is it ok but disencouraged to look at nsfw forums without engaging with them or leaving traces or will it result in a ban or harsh words

    As I understand it, the model of the forums is that discussions of sex and sexuality within a primarily clinical and nonsensual manner are considered nsfw but not 18+. So while discussing the explicit details of a sex life would be 18+, discussing sex in general and safe sexual practices is not (because this is knowledge that you should, by rights, be teaching in schools anyways, and it's better for minors to know rather than get into shit they shouldn't be into.) So if we're discussing masturbation in pre-pubescent kids with anecdotal evidence, it may not be 18+ (because it is clinical) but it would be NSFW (and can border into 18+ depending on the level of detail that goes into it.)

    I thiiiink? All images with nudity are considered 18+, even nonsexual nudity, because of Internet Legal Shenanigans. Likewise, sensual and explicit detail with regards to sex, sex acts, and kinkiness is considered 18+.

    Currently, I think that while checking out the NSFW forums is discouraged, you won't be banned for it unless you post in it. Banning is typically not taken as a course of action unless it's requested by the banned party (such as self-imposts bans from FiD and That Could Have Gone Better or the ITA forums) and I think it was tossed around as a potential last resort in the even that a minor continued to post in the NSFW forums without abiding by the "please don't" guidelines. It may never have been formalized though.

    NSFW to me could be anything from sex to gore to "you're not supposed to be using social media at work". but things marked 18+ in this forum are definitly sexual and most often also personal. the general discussion of sex and sexuality is okay though, and not 18+. like for example the XX/XY sub forum has discussions about that but is not marked 18+, and the ITA subforum also contains discussion of sex without being 18+.

    renaissance art would probably count as nsfw but not 18+

    i think checking the NSFW forums is fine if you know what you're going into, and don't post. like i think its healthy and normal for minors to be interested in nsfw, marked 18+ content, and browing that content is different from interacting with others about that content. 'cause respecting boundries is important, and if something is marked 18+ the people there dont want minors in the thread... but also there's no real way to stop minors from browsing 18+ stuff unless the minor asks for a ban. and even then, sockpuppets.

    I guess by point of reference, the conversations going on in the 18+ subforum are mostly people talking about their own personal sex lives and experiences, lots of details about what makes our kinks hot to us, and making and sharing recommendations for porn, and those are the kinds of conversations that I, personally, would be uncomfortable with a minor spectating (although there are not likely to be any formal consequences, and certainly not a general ban).

    Anything sex-ed related would definitely not be 18+ only, and I would say that extends to "i have this kink" and potential discussion of safe sex practices wrt that.
    fakeedit: likewise with the point PR raises about anecdotal discussions involving nonsexual discussion of sexual history, kinks people have, etc.
    Similarly, I think it's super important that discussion of sexual abuse, no matter how graphic, is never considered 18+, because we have a lot of minors with sexual abuse experiences here and they need to be able to talk about that in as much detail as the need or want to.

    Non-sexual nudity in art or whatever is not strictly 18+, but I think nude photos probably is.

    hmm seems legit. what falls under kinks, like saying you have a kink without going into explicit detail or loudly fantasising or should you just stay outta that trail entirely. like often its related to "wow is this fucked up to have" and all the insecurities with that. i also like meta discussing kinks like bruh how does someone even develop that.
    yeah thats funny cause my descop image is literally a naked painting of a woman looking sheepish and even tho i go to a christian school it has never gotten me in trouble. America in general is Extremely prudish tho (im 15 and very close to AOC in my country anyways and nudity, swearing and sex is shown on prime tv uncensored so like)
    i tend to be Uber careful given that its a big culture clash and i dont wanna make it weird, im also not interested in reading about peoples actual real life sex lives, it just makes me sad my girlfriend is so far away and also csa stuff.
    i know the sex ed and abuse things are all ages, and thats good tho.
    I know it makes people uncomfortable and i try to respect boundaries, i just dont always know where the line is (being both from an entirely different culture and also intra relatioship wise grew up with a very unhealthy sex life with lots of confused morals and exposure to Bad things its really hard to phase me tho, so i dont think theres any "protect the innocent" rhetoric that will make much sense to me or ill find anything posted crude or offensive. its more about what others are comfortable with)

    and yes i know better than taking naked pics, theres probably quite a few nsa dudes interested in that its illegal and causes more harm than good.

    All cool and not 18+. Especially the "is this fucked up to have," which I would say falls firmly under sex ed.

    i think all ages kink could be explanations of kink? and discussion of "wait that's a thing?" variety. and being open about sexuality.

    directing kink comments at someone is 18+ i think.

    fakeedit: ninjad! but yeah discussion of kinks, even on a personal level is okay! directing kink/sexual coments at someone is different thing than discussing the topic.

    also im right off the bat assuming crude jokes and cursing isnt nsfw because then we might aswell get out the chastity belts and magic underwear

    as someone who is a frequent target of unwarranted kink comments and randos fantasizing on me, i hope im aware of that distinction for the most part

    swirlingflight inane analysis and story spinning is my passion

    the difficulty is that the chastity belts and magic underwear falls under kinks for some of us...

    still, going to come down to a level of how overt/graphic/detailed, i think

    gotta admit that thought crossed my mind while writing it


    i cant believe a kink shaming society became a kink the world is beautiful

    yeah same, and intent. like i dont care if someone talks about their fantasies even in pretty graphic detail as long as its not directed at me with an expectation of having me reply and return the favor. like go at it man, as long as i dont feel obliged to engage or youre not just trying to start a sexting chain.
