    I want to know if we are allowed to discuss these things and write about them?

    Thanks for your sincere reply.

      the best advice i can give you is that you should submit your hubs to the hubpages staff before publishing them, by e-mailing them to look over your unpublished hub.  once they do, they'll tell you what's appropriate about it and whats not to so you can change it.

      Sex tips that describe sexual practices, positions, aids, toys, or enhancements are against our Terms of Service.

      Tips for enhancing intimacy, as far as romance or emotional connection are concerned, are okay.  Just no graphic descriptions.

        How about 'Quotes About Sex', or 'Sex Quotations', if the quotes were no worse than:

        "Remember if you smoke after sex you're doing it too fast"

        and

        "Sex was never as neat as the movies made it. Real sex was messy. Good sex was messier".

        Would they be permitted? And if so, would they trip the AdSense filter?

        I ask because I have, over a period of time, compiled a collection of over 550 of those quotes.... which I could make 9 hubs out of.... but wouldn't do so if they weren't monetised.

        Thanks in advance for your reply...

        what about references to sex?  or just describing sexual inuendos and how they're inappropriate in a film?  is that acceptable?  or not?

          Mentioning sex or using the odd innuendo is not a problem.  Descriptions of sex acts or promotion of toys/aids/enhancements is not okay.

          @ryankett: My first guess is the high concentration of "sex" and sex-related words in those quotes would probably mean AdSense wouldn't want to serve ads on them.  You can email me with a sampling if you want a more educated guess.

            oh okay. thanks for the heads up.  so what about videos though.  if there's like a nude scene, BUT the private parts are covered by a black bar, so you can't see anything.  would that be ok?

    Well, HP may allow you to publish the hub, but you're certainly not going to make any money off of it. Google has a list of topics that it wants nothing to do with, and if I'm not mistaken, sex is one of them.

      What do you mean by this? "Google has a list of topics that it wants nothing to do with"


      I just searched on the keyword "how to improve sex" in the google's search engine, and guess what, there are hundreds of articles come up on the first page and so on.

      What I want to know if HP do not condemn these topics...

        lrohner is referring to google adsense the advertiser used for advertising on your hubpages, which you should not confuse with the google search engine.

    It really depends on HOW "adult" the content is whether HP will allow it or not. IF they allow it, they will almost certainly disable Google AdSense ads. Google does not want their ads on articles (and not just HP) that have to do with guns, illegal drugs, etc.--and I believe most sex topics are taboo with them too.

    hubpages allow you to write about sex but don't use nude images and adult videos

    Even if you write a hub about it and it is allowed, chances are Google will still not display ads on it.

    Case in point.. My Zack and Miri make a Porno hub.

    I am no expert when it comes to sex. I have a long way to go first. I am one of the few inexperienced. Any advice for me?
