Don't want to try it if there are going to be problems

    If I write about the clitoris as part of anatomy, will I get problems about it being sexual content?

      You have a thing about sex.

      You wrote a hub about sex changes in young women, concentrating n the body parts.

      When your ads got disabled, you kicked up a fuss on the forums about a hub I had on the same topic, only I had concentrated on the emotional aspect.

      You got my ads disabled.

      So, write about what you want. I don't care if HP disable or unpublish your hubs.

        I was trying to get my ads enabled by showing that it was alright. I was not trying to get your ads disabled. If you would have left that hub on then your ads may have been enabled again. Can you guess why I say this?

      Yes, of course you will.   The automated filters can't read context, all they can do is look for "naughty words". 

      I know it's frustrating that you can't write about sex on HubPages, but those are the rules.  It's much better to start your own blog if those are the kind of topics you want to write about.

    Thanks. I have couple of blogs but they are about cancer and health. So I guess that I will put it on the blog about health. Although it is a Google blog and I believe that Hub Pages disables ads since they do not want to get in trouble with Google.

    Note that I do have an article that had its ads disabled for being sexual content. But I figured that I will still leave it up since it was a good article with current issues. Like they are talking about gays and marrage but being gay used to be classified as a psychoological disorder.

    So I left it up. I even read an article on here on why to leave up articles that have ads diabled. After awhile the ads were enabled. They have been like that for a while. Then I got a big surge in traffic for that article like someone mentioned it in their blog. During the few days the ads were disabled. Then traffic dropped and the ads were enabled. I did nothing so it was not me.

    I have a similar article on wordpress.com, no ads. I get a lot of comments like people cheering me for talking about a controversial subject. Ultimately it is about HATE. Who should we hate today? Then I also get people who do not like the article since they say that it is un-natural.

    Maybe I should write an article about black slavery. It is just like the above. It is all about timing. Many years ago if you lived in the south and were against black slavery, you could get into a lot of trouble. You were an awful person for trying to make people's lives harder. In fact Lincoln causes a war that killed more Americans than any other war. This meant many were killed for being against black slavery. Remember that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are considered the greatest Americans ever but they had black slaves.

    It was one of the darkest times in world history. Maybe I should an article on what was worse--black slavery or the holocaust.

      Adsense is a division of Google, and Blogger is a division of Google, but they are separate and have different rules.

      If you decided to use Adsense on your Blogger blog, you might be at risk of having your Adsense account banned.  If you're not using ads, you shouldn't have a problem.

      Just bear in mind that the rules are there to protect you.  If Google checks your Hub and finds you're showing Adsense ads on a Hub which breaks their rules, they will terminate your Adsense account.  For life. That will mean you won't be able to earn a cent from HubPages and most other revenue-sharing sites.  So if you hope to earn some income from any of your writing, it's better to err on the safe side every time you want to write about sexual subjects.

    I tried it with 2 paragraphs and ads disabled. Of course there is a chance that the moderaters may decide to enable them but I do not like to gamble. I will check Google blog rules and maybe I will put the article on wordpress where it has no ads.

    Here is what the Google blog says:

    Adult Content: We do allow adult content on Blogger, including images or videos that contain nudity or sexual activity. But, please mark your blog as 'adult' in your Blogger settings. Otherwise, we may put it behind a 'mature content' interstitial.

    There are some exceptions to our adult content policy:
    ■Do not use Blogger as a way to make money on adult content. For example, don't create blogs where a significant percentage of the content is ads or links to commercial porn sites.
    ■No incest or bestiality content: We do not allow image, video or text content that depicts or encourages incest or bestiality.

    The answer is: yes.  That is just how things are.
