    There are many adult products being sold through Amazon. Are such Adult ads like Vibrators, sex toys allowed to be selected and used in Hubs by Authors. I have seen many hubs using Amazon ads like that. (Many hubbers display such amazon ads in hubs that have no relation to that Topic)

    I just want to know whether they are allowed or not in Hubpages , as they are displayed along with Adsense ads.

      I believe amazon ads can be selected by author.I buy from Amazon re-sellers all the time. I haven't had any more (or less) problems with them than I've had with any other internet vendors.

      Recently I came to know that there is a website named AmazingWatcher.Com which is a free website that will “watch” items for you on Amazon and let you know when amazon has them in stock at regular retail price.It got so awesome!
      Good luck everybody!

    Oh sorry, at first I thought you meant the toys are annoying, rather then the ads are annoying, and I was curious to see what an annoying sex toy was like?
    I am sorry I dont have good advice, but I am pretty sure I have seen similar questions about how to remove an ad..good luck. Are amazon ads like adsense, in that they will change to a more appropriate one over time?

    The default search on Amazon will NOT bring up any adult products.  This is true of both the HubPages widget and Amazon.com itself.  They go to a lot of trouble to keep it that way!

    However, HubPages peeps can certainly choose those products specifically.  Whether that's appropriate for a Hubber to do isn't for me to decide!

    But don't worry, if you use an Amazon widget, it won't suddenly start displaying adult products on your HubPage (unless you specifically tell it to do so).

    I can see it in others hubs. I just want to know whether it is allowed in this site or not. Are everyone aware of it or not. That was the question i asked in the first post.

    When you see stuff like that, flag it and let admin sort it out.
