I was wondering why lush (an adult sex forum) does not allow explicit genitalia photos in their avatar pictures. Do y'all think that is a good thing or should it be changed to allow people to show what they want in their profile pictures?

Because avatars can be seen by anyone, including non members who stumble upon the site. That includes under age people who stumble upon it.

Also, not all members want some strangers' genitalia forced upon them just by coming across an AV. That's what image galleries are for.

Because AVs can be seen on the front page. They could inadvertently be seen by the wrong eyes, before they had the chance to decide whether to enter the site or navigate away...
Personally, I don't want to some guy's cock or some woman's pussy unless I choose to... If I want to see explicit or hardcore stuff, then I can choose to look at that... I don't need it foisted on me, unsolicited thank you very much!

Keep your junk private!!

I like the AV thing the way it is...

Because it's a "Story" site. First and foremost, people come here to read stories and not look at your explicit genitalia. Lush is a free sex stories adult community site. I come here to read stories and talk to friends, not to see your cock and prefer not to see it.

I'm in total agreement with the women above me. The rules are fabulous the way they are. You want explicit, then head over to xhamster or pornhub.



It won a potato. Aren't you intrigued?

because it's unimaginative. after a while, random genitalia shots get kind of boring - seen one, seen them all. i prefer avatars that reflect the personality of the person. it's much more intriguing then a picture of a penis. *yawns*

You can post any type of pictures you want in your image gallery as long as they don't violate major rules like violence or incest or underage things. But your avatars are really the face of the site. It accompanies your forum posts and your story comments. People navigate this site in many different places, and we like to keep the face of the site as view-friendly as possible because people see your avatar whether they want to or not.

So if it's anyone's desire to show their nudie bits, feel free to do so in an image gallery where people have the OPTION to do so and aren't forced.

Yes it's an adult site, so we should act like adults and not force people to look at our junk.

ASIDE: There are so many creative ways to show your parts to people without being so in-your-face about it. You can do an erection through undies. You can show your boobs. You can take a pic in a speedo. You can show your boobs. You can take a pic in some sheer panties (damp even, if it tickles your fancy..or if you've tickled your own fancy). You can show your boobs. You can do a pic in sweat pants. You can show your boobs. You can do yoga pants or booty shorts. You can show your boobs. You can do an underwear or bikini pic and do the vagina wedgie thing. You can show your boobs. You can do an obscure nude pic where it's not a close-up of your genitals, but it's still your genitals. You can show your boobs. You can do that torso thing that some guys prefer. Or...you can show your boobs.

If willies and vaginas were allowed as avatars, I would never have joined Lush. Some people may say that's a good thing. They can bog off.

Part of Lush's appeal for me was that I could read about and explore sex in written form without being freaked out by certain pictures and subjects that are thankfully not allowed. Lush is changing and growing, and whilst there are certain aspects of that I'm not happy or comfortable with, it happens. I hope this particular rule won't change. .

Of course it does. They then get their respective cocks or pussies slapped by admin and put up a more appropriate AV.

Ok ok I was imply curious about what the members thought about the subject aside from admin. No reason to get all up in arms lads and lassies.While I agree with most of what you say, I especially agree with a lack of imagination and keeping it for people you trust and want to see and show to. I have to ask though what harm does an avatar do when a non member or minor can step right in to the home page and see advertisement for hardcore porn sites and stories of incest and bondage? How does an avatar really keep them from viewing illicit materials?

Nothing is going to STOP anyone underage from seeing what is on this site. I mean there is no way to completely stop anyone from lying about their age and getting in. Lush does what it can to prevent it and when it finds out someone is underage bans them, but they can always come back under a different name and start again. By making the "no genitalia on the avatar" rule Lush does what it can to keep this from young eyes.

Personally, I like the rule the way it is. I don't want to have to wade through a bunch of "junk" (as it was termed) when looking for friends. MHO

i for one am glad

i think lush is classy sexy and naughty

i don't want to see right away someone's private parts

it is like getting undressed for your lover

i want to see you slowly evolved into your nakedness
