Adult Content Topics & Settings
Quora is open to questions about Adult Content, including on the Sex topic. The Sex topic is sensitive and we are focused on creating a space where users don’t feel uncomfortable. Given this, questions relating to Adult Content will only appear in your Feed if you have opted in either by (1) editing the Adult Content Filter setting in your Settingsto explicitly allow it, or (2) following a specific Adult Content topic (for example: Sex) that has been applied to the question.
As always on Quora, we aim to create an environment where contributors can write great reusable questions and answers. General questions that can be reusable resources are preferred over anecdotes that apply only to one person. Questions about sex should be intended to be useful and should not be jokey, puerile, adversarial, or graphic.
Sexual and sexually-provocative images. Sexual, sex-related, and sexually-provocative images are only allowed on pages involving adult topics and which have been tagged with the appropriate Quora Adult topic(s) (i.e.,, and/or other topics), which will restrict its distribution.
Because user profile picturesappear throughout the site, sex-related image content is not permitted in profile pictures.
Sexual and sexually-related language: in answers on pages where the question is related to sex. On these pages, it is OK to include such language, if the page is appropriately tagged with, , and/or related topics.
Sexual and sexually-related language in answers on pages where the question isn't about sex or adult topics. Users may use sex-related language in their answers to these questions if it is important to the quality of the answer. However, these users should be careful to use language that is not jokey, puerile, adversarial, or graphic.
However, users should avoid sex-related language/content in their answers if it is not important to the quality of the answer. For example, users should avoid using sexual language to (1) make a humorous point or (2) provide a non-important supportive illustration, example, or anecdote.
Topic pictures for sex-related topics
Pictures for sex-related topics should be either (1) similar to images you would find in a medical / anatomy textbook or (2) altogether not sexually graphic or explicit.
