I just created a lingerie hub. Does this violate either Hubpages TOS or Google Adsense TOS? I really don't want to break the rules and will delete if it does!
Well you signed your agreements.... So like Anyone else in a business that has a legal responsibility and whose owner wants to know what their legal terms are..... Go and read the documents BEFORE you take the Lazy Option of asking others to do the job for you!
I did - and the reason I am asking is because the definition of
"Lewd or provocative images
Crude or indecent language, including adult stories
Sexual tips or advice
Sexual fetish sites (e.g. foot fetish content)
Adult toys or products
Ads or links to external sites containing adult content"
"•Publish Hubs or Hub or Author Content that include any content or links that are pornographic, defamatory, libelous, tortious, vulgar, obscene, invasive of privacy, racially or ethnically objectionable, hateful, promotes or provides instructional information about illegal activities, promotes any act of cruelty to animals, or is otherwise offensive."
is very broad. And as I am not a legal expert I was simply seeking advice.
You shouldn't get into trouble over this. There are plenty of hubs on that sort of subject matter. I have one about slips that has been very successful with traffic!
Clearly if your hubs contain sexual tips for foot fetish sufferers and are tortuous in their composition; in that they could be interpreted as being a lewd invasion of the privacy of a friend's race horse; which may or may not be attempting to have you link with it directly and indecently with images of racially affected adult toys....... Then you have a problem!
If you have received a notification along the lines of the above from HP Central.... Then your problem requires suitable modification, to fall within the terms of service.
If you haven't, then you do no have a problem... Unless someone or a provocative race horse flags it
So What is Broad about That BB?
Well I guess I do violate the Google TOs, and therefore don't mind there being no Google Ads; I'm more concerned with the Hubpages TOS - not sure if pictures of lingerie are considered pornographic - I guess if someone flags it, it'll get reviewed - I just received a generic warning plus the new 'google ads' warning...
Why don't you email the HubPages team and ask them to review it. They've stated more than once that they are happy to do this.
It looks fine to me content wise and picture wise, I think you will be fine, but it might be wise to email hubpages just in case.
If you see PSA google ads then google doesn't like it! Topics such as massages and stuff can also get you grief from the google prude police.
It all depends on the perspective you're trying to show. If your bikini pictures are obscene or lewd? then there is a problem but if they're normal bikini or lingeri picture I don't think there may be a problem

Howdy,If the contents of our hubs is our property, as hubpages reassures us it is, then why is there such strangling posting restrictions as to choke the breath from the spring blooms of free speech? ,
