NSFW images for the main site

Jan 18, 2021 - edited Jan 18, 2021 - permalink

Hi everyone,

Chainer suggested I put this here for discussion.

With the introduction of the forum being integrated into the main site it's now very easy and convenient to gain access to the 18+/NSFW images of girls with muscle. All you need is a valid account and you're in. However, in my mind this makes some of the upload rules a bit redundant as it is now so easy to upload these sorts of images to the site, all be it to the forum page. Many people in the forum asking the sorts of questions that are often posted for the "normal" pictures here like "Who is she?" and "Is there more?" etc...

What I propose is clear demarcation on the main site that would allow for the uploading, naming, tagging, viewing, reporting and commenting on of pictures considered 18+/NSFW (just like "normal" pictures) that can ONLY be accessed by valid account holders (possibly via an opt in option on the account page) accessible via a menu item in the main banner that only appears for those members. Just like you can't upload, comment or chat unless you're logged in.

From a technical aspect there could be an additional attribute given to images like NSFW or something that either the uploader could tick or the mods could use if considered necessary (although I know the mods have enough on their plates and this would add to that load.)

Chainer has made it clear that he does not want his site to become a porn site or known as such. I respect that feeling and it's his creation so his rules. I think that if done right it would make for a better user experience and should be easy to reverse should the need arise.

What are your thoughts on this?

Maybe, but then again I can understand where he’s coming from. If nude FBB was allowed then there would be more nude FBB pics than regular ones with attire on. So it’s probably for the best that it has its own forum.

Fair point but the whole idea around my post was that they wouldn't be visible amongst the "normal" pictures and that you'd have to make a conscious effort to see them. Hence the multiple steps to gain access and view. Also your point shows that it's what people want to see. If there would me more nudes than not what does that tell you?

True I didn’t notice that until now. As suppose as long they have their own page dedicated to those pics (also logging in to make sure your 18+) I think it should be fine.

I'll give my 2c, and this is a personal opinion based on my experience here:

TL;DR:

We risk losing more than we gain making NSFW available as part of the main site.

The long form:

We need to remember that we have many models here who tolerate or endorse this site because it is not a porn site. If SFW & NSFW pictures got mixed together, then we would risk having more models asking not be be on GWM - anything that contains porn is automatically considered a porn site in the halls of public opinion.

Remember that models risk losing sponsorships or professional positions, if they are seen being mixed in with porn content. I could point to one or two fitness personalities who suffered that fate, but I won't mention them here since it is part of the past careers.

Additionally, there is already a whole collection of adult oriented web sites, that Girlswithmuscle does not need to be another one.

I really must have not been clear when I put "What I propose is clear demarcation on the main site" - having SFW & NSFW mixed in together is very very opposite of what I'm suggesting here.

Although, honestly, how many NSFW pics/vids would there be that abide by the site's upload rules (no paysite content, no watermark cropping)?

I understand the desire to have an NSFW section, but that's already offered in the forum. And to reiterate what tamarok has already pointed out, most of these women are not porn stars. Many of them lead plain, wholesome, family-driven lifestyles. The last thing they would want is to have their pictures end up on a porn site (which this site is not).

i don't think that's a good idea personally, Bates. i'm much happier with the current setup as it is. too many people already think of this site as a fetish platform, and that's before a NSFW section of the newly integrated forum was established.

NSFW would make this site goated. I think pics like that could be great on a separate but identical platform.

Here's what I wrote in the original thread where this came up:

Depending on the specific form this takes, it could be more or less reasonable. However, I specifically want a separation between the main site content (which I like to call PG-13) and the actual nudity found on this NSFW board. The main reasons are:

  • I want the adult content to be more hidden and harder to find than regular content. I don't want GWM to be a porn site first and foremost, and I don't want that to be the first thing users see when they visit the site.
  • I want the adult content to be clearly identified and quarantined to one place so that if there ever comes a time when I need or want to delete it, I can easily do that (in this case, nuking the NSFW board).

tamarok above gave a well-articulated reason for why these two points are desirable that I agree with, in addition to me not wanting to host a porn site.

cgsweat also makes a good point. It's likely that most adult content would come from paysites or private onlyfans pages (effectively paysites), and so it would fall under our policy to delete it preemptively. After all, models don't post nudes of themselves on their public Instagram the way they do random flexing shots.

i vouch for a small sister site for all +18 content as not to jeopardize GWM's future integrity. this seems to make the most sense to me.

If it's not broke, then don't fix it. You guys who want porn? Kindly seek for it elsewhere.

I for one don't want to see GwM get the same sort of scrutiny as given to PornHub and perhaps Clips for Sale. Don't give the far right religious zealots any reason to extend their anti-porn jihad to GwM.
