Post your most intriuging and controvercial hubs here for everyone to see and read and give feedback on. Here's mine to coincide with a hub a wrote.
Does sex really sell because it's just sex, or because we're so stupid we by into the word alone? What is it with sex? I don't get why it's being made to be such a big deal.
This is a touchy, controversial subject. Some people it doesnt bother and others its degrading. So what's really the deal?
I'm still trying to figure this one out, lol.
Check out my hub about this topic with more topics like it to come.
What help do you need on this hub? This is not what this forum is for.
Yes, but not to tell people to post their most controversial hubs.
It is supposed to be a forum where people who need help with their hubs ask for suggestions for improvement.
Somethings are naturally built into us. The survival of humanity depended upon the males need for and to be attracted to sex. Yes we are smarter now and know better but it is still there.
Some things we have a hard time avoiding. We had a horrible train wreck in DC yesterday; the worst metro disaster in its history. The cops had to keep back the gawking crowds. They had no reason to be there other the to see the wreck; they needed to see it.
I'm quite interested in this from a Google TOS point of view, I know there are quite a few risqué hubs here at HP, and have thought about publishing a few myself. However I've always steered clear out of fear of breaking the Google terms.
Obviously Pornography is not allowed, and nor is content related to adult sex toys, etc. But I've also been warned that anything with a specifically adult theme is also dodgy, and could result in account closure.
Anybody know exactly where the line lies with regard to mature content and Google Adsense?
That line seems to be a very blurry line, given what I've seen at hubpages.
It seems that the folks that do that make sure that their text is quite vanilla, while the pics aren't. I just ran across a few while I was looking at the New Hubs feature a couple of days ago. Given that they use bland text, I don't know how people find them.
I've been meaning to go back and see if there is google adsense on them, or if they're even still here. But I lost my list.
Yes I agree with the blurry part.
Maybe its just me ,but some Hubs are as explicit as any article in a Playboy or Cosmo.
Must be the Innuendo that sells..
Good points Eaglekiwi! My sister used to subscribe to Cosmo and I thought it was a pretty explicit magazine in some ways. Many of the articles were about how women can keep their men interested in bed, and after awhile it was the same thing over and over again - just with new titles and new spins.
Thanks all for your input, it certainly is a blurry issue, what HubPages themselves are willing to publish is of no real concern to me, but Google themselves can be very touchy about their ads being displayed on anything remotely 'Adult', and for anyone who has put a lot of effort into building up their Adsense content portfolio, it would be a real shame to lose your account by stepping into this Gray territory and being deemed to have crossed the line.
Because in 99% of cases, once your Adsense account is gone, it's gone.
thats kinda funny considering what you can google....
Well Goggle must be selling the adverts to someone because we all know theyre out there!
Having said that , I dont want them kinda adverts on my work anyway ,just one fact dont match the other.
Oh yeah, Google would sell ad space for badly cut drugs and third world sex trafficking if they could turn a buck and get away with it, but they won't let you put Adsense on content about these things because 'we're a family friendly company'.
I am, not so sure about them though.
* note to Google, if you're reading this, I love you really, please don't cancel my account!
Good way to get banned by posting a controversial hub here and tellin the world about it, might as well invite the police in to check out your kiddie porn and bong collection while you're at it.
Obviously sex sells. Just look around.
My view is..If you don't like it, avoid it. Don't read a hub you know is going to be controversial and then gripe about it or flag it. Sex is out there, everywhere. We aren't going to change that anytime soon, that's just a fact. If you don't like something, ignore it. No one is holding your eyelids open forcing you to read anything.
Ok, whew, glad i got that off my chest, feel a little better
I abhor sexually explicit hubs and avoid them alltogether. Why do they need to talk about sex all the time??
human nature. fun to push the envelope for some, just the idea that it will draw readers for others...who knows. Sex is no biggie to some and not something to think about censoring.
I wrote a hub to test the theory that sex sells, as soon as I put some sexy pics on it, it got more hits than any other hub by a mile! It also broke the rules and was suspended until I took down the pics and replaced them with less racy ones.
hmmm...RB...maybe you could try to think of a hub about a body part or something....
maybe an azz...oh wait, that's been done. Shoot, Oh I got it Man boobs...you know Moobs
You been peekin I know it.....and I'm so embarassed....they're just so small.....but they're very sensitive....I mean about people talking about them.
The problem with sex titled hubs is that for the most part, the viewer is not a buyer. I have made nothing from my test hub, yet it has had many thousands of page views.
See this is very interesting... this is why I wanted to get a hub started and I must say I probably did start it in the wrong place, my apologies...
On an different note, I wrote the hub I did, because I think the whole sex thing is retarded... really... but it's obvious it sells and it's out there. I mean no one any kind of harm, ill regard or anything... I was only writing the hub that I did, because at the time it's what was on my mind and what I was dealing with... I write as a way of venting sometimes, don't we all?
Everyone's perspective is truely great to know and I appreciate the feedback.

Hi, I have been posting a series of hubs on Dog Care and Adoption topics. All my hubs are original and I type each character in it. I also got a decent number of Hubs(21) to begin with all with good content. But google has twice turned down my request for adsense Account. It says-" Thank you...
by Karine Gordineer 8 years ago
When you send out the request for an account should you get an email back right away or does it take a while? Will the not respond to you at all if you've only published one hub? Does anyone know of a way to contact Google? Or a way to cancel your google account? I signed up, I...

I joined HubPages five months ago but have just recently (like yesterday)began submitting Hubs. How long do I wait to add Google Adsense & what about the other types of affiliate options? I am sure this is answered somewhere on this site but as a mother of six and a full time...

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

I've written 9 hubs, all are featured, Including 2 "Hub of the Day" and one "Rising Star" but have just been refused a Google Adsense account for "insufficient content". All my hubs are over 1000 words....can anyone tell me where I am going wrong so I can correct...
by AgeOfAquarius 11 years ago
I'm anxious to sign up for adsense but only have one hub, and possibly a second by the end of today. Will they still accept me if I only have a few?
