    Had someone ask me to write a comical style article based on the following title, would it be a topic allowed on HP, or would I need to find another outlet to publish it?

    "Things That Will Make Your Professor Feel Sexually Confused"

    And if by any chance it allows it, it will  not have ads. I tried to write an article about birth control and there were warnings from the moment I typed in the title to the end. As I was about to submit another warning popped up about how ads have been disabled on my article, I gave in and deleted it. To be honest it had some obsenities in it and I believe your article is bound to meet the same fate . I would suggest that it's better if you find another outlet.

        Hi Bills Place, the contents supported or allowed in hubpages are generally family oriented. However you can write such content if it complies with their policy. There are certain keywords that draw a red flag so you need to write carefully. The way to write such content is to use plain language and avoid red flagged words.This would probably affect the quality of your content. For example I wrote a powerful piece on scarification, it got published and latter red-flagged, i edited and it got published again then flagged, the ads were also removed. Another thing to consider are the images you add to the content, including the title.

          Thanks for responding. I agree on the images, for this reason I always try to keep images 'family friendly' both on and off HP. This increases the chance of being found in image search, as I don't have to worry about search restrictions of adult content. smile

          I'm having issues figuring out another outlet though, as the topic does not fit any of my current article based websites (which cover Pokemon, Coffee, Tea and Herbs).

    It’s all supposed to be “family friendly”. Something you can share with the kids. You may be on shaky ground.

      As the concept behind it was college humor, I probably wouldn't share the topic with kids, but teens. More of a PG-13 vs PG.
