This Adult Content Policy forms part of the Member Agreement and is incorporated by reference therein. Capitalized terms not
defined herein will have the meanings set forth in the Member Agreement and related policies.
The Site includes language, content, images and themes of an adult, sexual or controversial nature (collectively,
"Adult Content"). To ensure that Ingenio listings do
not inadvertently offend some Members or users and do not violate any relevant laws,
Ingenio exercises its judgment in the best interests of its entire
membership by allowing, segregating or rejecting certain listings. Telephone communications, discussions, postings and other
services that may not be appropriate for all users, such as listings that include language, content, images and themes of a sexual
or controversial nature("Sexually-Oriented Content," as described below), are restricted to
Ingenio's "Adults Only" section listed under
the Social/Entertainment category. Listings that are illegal in any jurisdiction are prohibited on
Does Ingenio permit Advisors to post Sexually-Oriented Content
Yes. To ensure that any Adult Content is not accessible to minors, entry to the Site requires age verification. Furthermore, to
avoid inadvertently offending adult Members or users of Ingenio, all
Sexually-Oriented Content is restricted to the Adults Only area on
You will take your time to carefully consider and find the appropriate category in which to create your listing. You will not send
Mail containing Sexually-Oriented Content except through this Adults Only section. If you create a listing within the
"Adults Only" section of the Site, you will not create any listing outside of the Adults Only section. Likewise,
if you create listings in any category outside of the "Adults Only" section of the Site, you will not create listings
within the "Adults Only" section.
What are the requirements for entering Ingenio's Adults Only area?
Ingenio requires all Members and users who accesses or uses any area of
the Ingenio Site to be eighteen (18) years old or older.
In addition, to view listings in the "Adults Only" area, Ingenio
requires Members to agree to the Age Verification Agreement. These extra precautions help to ensure that minors do not have access to
Adult Content material.
What kind of listings does Ingenio consider to be "Sexually-Oriented Content?"
Material that Ingenio, in its sole discretion, considers to be
"Adult-Oriented," includes, but is not limited to, the following content:
- Descriptive sexual language.
- Any reference in a listing to any form of sexual intercourse or behavior, actual or simulated.
- Any listing that contains sexually explicit or sexually related text or images (of partial or full nudity).
- Any listing whose purpose is to sexually arouse a Member or user or cause lascivious or lustful thoughts.
- Any listing which is intended to let Members or users know that the Advisor has listings that appear in the Adults Only
section, Adult Content websites or other Adult Content locations.
- Any listing which, because of the nature or because of the description in the listing, appears to be designed solely to
solicit sexual/adult talk, such as: "I'll talk about anything", "Tell me your wildest dreams," etc.
- Any listing whose feedback consistently indicates that the Advisor is engaging in Sexually-Oriented Content conversations.
Some listings may have sexual content, but are not considered "Sexually Oriented Content," such as discussions limited to
sexual medical issues and/or sexual education.
Are there any limits on the types of Adult Content material that can be listed in the Adults Only area of the Ingenio website?
Yes. Members are expected to follow all applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances relating to obscene and
indecent content and communications. In particular, obscenity and child pornography are prohibited on
Ingenio because they violate the laws of the United States and many other
countries. While obscenity is not always easy to define and depends on the standards in your area,
Ingenio specifically prohibits any listings or Mail that contain content
related to bestiality, rape sex, incest, sex with graphic violence or degradation, excretory functions, bodily fluids, fisting and
any other content which may be judged as obscene. With respect to child pornography,
Ingenio will remove any listings and prohibits any Mail containing or
referring to child pornography, such as listings containing the word "Lolita" or referring to nude photographs of
"girls," "teens" or "children." In no event may images of children, whether nude, clothed or partially
clothed, be posted in Mail or in any area of the Site, including Advisor listings. In the event that
Ingenio discovers child pornography in any listing, Mail or otherwise,
Ingenio will promptly notify the National Center for Missing and Exploited
Children and or the appropriate law enforcement agency.
In addition, nude or pornographic images, including sexually graphic "wallpaper" as a backdrop to a listing, are not
permitted in any Mail or any area of the Site, as outlined in our Photo Policy and
this Adult Content Policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Advisors may send Mail containing nude images, provided that any such
Mail containing nude images has been initiated from and is restricted to the Adults Only section of the Site and complies with this
Adult Content Policy. Nude images are not permitted in any Advisor listing or elsewhere on the Site, as outlined in our Photo Policy.
In no event may images of children, as outlined above and in our Photo Policy, be posted in Mail or in any area of the Site,
including Advisor listings.
What will Ingenio do if it finds unrestricted listings that belong in the "Adults Only" area of the Site?
If Ingenio finds a listing that it determines, in its sole discretion,
belongs in the Adults Only area of the Site, Ingenio will delete that
listing and notify the Advisor via email of the change. If an Advisor repeatedly posts Sexually-Oriented Content in unrestricted
areas of the Site, Ingenio reserves the right to cancel, without notice,
his or her membership.
What will Ingenio do if it finds listings that contain adult content or is notified that Mail contains adult content that is prohibited on the Ingenio Site?
Ingenio reserves the right to suspend at any time and without notice any
listing, and to cancel at any time and without notice the membership of any Member, that
Ingenio, in its sole discretion, determines to be in violation of its
Adult Content Policy. Ingenio will take all appropriate steps with
listings that Ingenio believes violate applicable laws, including
cooperation with any investigation.
What should Ingenio Members do if they see listings that should be restricted to the Adults Only area of the Site or are prohibited from the Site?
If you see a listing that you believe should be restricted to the Adults Only area of the Site or is prohibited from the Site
altogether, please contact Play Fair, by filling out a Support Form and selecting "Play Fair Inquiry" from the drop down menu. Ingenio
will review the listing and determine whether to move it to the Adults Only area, remove the listing from the Site and/or report
the listing to the appropriate authorities. Ingenio appreciates your
assistance in keeping the Ingenio Site free of material that is illegal
or may be offensive to Members.
