You vote. Not for a change in rules, just to get a demographic of opinions.

To be honest, I don't really read the stories. Though, I don't think it would be bad to have some kind of code for explicit stores like "S" for sex or "P" for pooping.. things that might turn off or bother some people. As long as readers are warned what they're about to read, I don't see a problem with having them. That said, I don't think we need to have stories that are all smut and no substance.

Well this is a TB/DL/AB site so when you read a story expect explictness.

I recently read a story on this site, which I haven't done in ages, because of its title that looked explicit.
(Because I'm a mod, not because I wanted to get off)

It did leave me wondering: Is this actually allowed, even with a warning?

I'm of the opinion that this site should be suitable for 13 year olds and above. While no longer a teen site specifically, this is still a site where teens are very much welcome.

I was going to make a similar thread, but you beat me too it. :p

I think that it's acceptable to have a fetish support site that allows under 18/16s, but once you start having stories about people cumming and stuff... it seems risky.

I think there's a wider issue of things here being not so under 18/16 friendly, like threads in the mature thread forum going for the 'mature' in the other sense...
It's weird really, talking about sex and sexual stuff is perfectly fine, but sexual stories are basically porn. I have no idea what country's laws this site is affected by, but I reckon it's one that would disapprove.

I said No, but I want to qualify that. I believe that the warning idea has merit, and should be used. Keywords such as the ones cited above might be sufficient warning to keep the squeamish away. Explicit sexual references given as warnings will probably attract the readers who share that kind of interest, and I think that's a good thing. Those who are turned off by the referred subject matter will stay away, and that is good also.

If the warning system were voluntary on the part of the author, maybe with some participation by early readers, I think it would be good to introduce that system. We'd suggest a list of warning words (certainly to include those already mentioned) and gather suggestions for expanding the list.

edit: I read the question wrong :( :wallbash:

I'm in favor of the warning system, so my vote is void.

I have read stories here, and gotten through some of them. I'm not going to say anything more about my own reading habits, only that I think the authors should say a bit more to their audiences about how deep they go into the fringes of the fetishes described.

Yes, but ONLY with a mature content warning in the thread and thread title.

:bunny:The rub here is if you have a category of "mature topics" but any member of any age has access to it, there are great risks in allowing unregulated material. Not all the adult topic material is being generated and written by adults (+18-years.)

My opinion is that a mature topics forum should be restricted to age 18+. I've seen 13 year olds posting their suggestions for "Having sex in/with diapers" to a thread written by an adult op (in an adult domestic relationship). Makes you kind of wonder where we should (have) draw(n) the line. I'm sorry, but it is embarrassing to read these distasteful threads knowing that most of the suggestions and posts are coming from the imagination of 13 - 15 year olds "Fapping Fantasies".

If the intent is to allow for stories and role plays that are of an adult or explicit nature then their should be definitive guidelines/ground-rules and age restriction, if necessary. Otherwise just don't allow it (Porn or explicit sexual material).

One problem with this is that people have different ideas about what is or isn't explicit/sexual. I voted for "unsure".

I suggest you create a forum/usergroup especially for 18+ members of adisc, and have subforums like Mature Chat, picture threads, and mature stories.

Of course, the difficulty comes in validating 18 year olds. DailyDiapers.com asks for a $1 donation to the site to verify- definitely a plausible idea, though easily work-around-able. There's also the picture method, and as long as they don't obviously look like they're under 18.. but that still leaves room for judgement and err. Or using both methods as a double barrier.

I definitely approve of the idea of allowing mature content on adisc, however, I do agree that it shouldn't be easily accessible, as this is a community that was/is centered around the TB.

I voted yes/perhaps and did so because of the perhaps. I have mixed feelings. Even a 13 year old coming on to a site like this must have an idea as to the kind of content. That said, it is a valid point as to what kind of stories are appropriate for ADISC. We all have expressed a desire to keep our content at a higher level than other sites. That imparts a sense of responsibility to all of us members. If a story is just porn for the sake of porn, perhaps it doesn't belong on this site. On the other hand, since this is a diaper site, the stories are going to be about wearing diapers, and since most of us get off on wearing diapers, there is going to be sexual content. That's why I believe a 13 year old more or less knows what to expect. Besides, they are a lot more aware than some of us give them credit.

I voted "unsure" because there was no option for "it all depends".

Basically, my idea is that "R" equivalent should be permitted so long as there are proper disclaimers. But since this site has quite a few members who are 17 years old and younger, "NC17" equivalent material should be disallowed.

But that's just my two-cents' worth.

anything should go. If you don't like that type of stuff, then don't read it. I do agree that there should be atleast a warning of what you are about to read though.

Well my point is that some people have misused the mature topics forum. The idea is that people are meant to be mature: argue about serious topics sensibly, talk about sensitive issues with tact, and debate controversial topics without falling into name calling and stupidity.
These are all things that under 18s can do, and should be encouraged to do. Yet some people make threads about 'mature' things, 'mature' meaning "inappropriate for under 18s". Rather than impose an age limit, I'd prefer to remove the 18+ stuff.
I suggest you create a forum/usergroup especially for 18+ members of adisc, and have subforums like Mature Chat, picture threads, and mature stories.
I think that would encourage underage members to lie, or sign up again as older, to see the 18+.
Plus it would make under 18s the second-class citizens and be a big "fuck you!" to them.

I don't even think I like the idea of this place having anything sexual on it (as in, pictures, roleplay and stories made with the intention of arousal).

I liked it when talk about sex was done in euphemisms, and kept clean. :(

Edit:
I'm quite shocked that there's only 3 votes for 'no' at this time. Or more disappointed.
Is it perfectly normal for 13 year olds to be reading pornographic stories? Maybe the law is backwards, or maybe we're just doing our part to supply it and cause the apparent problem. I'm not really sure.

We are expressing freedom speech and of the press here. If a 13 year old reads something pornographic, then so be it. He/she made the choice to read it (Buyer beware). I am sorry, I am just not for the censorship of writtings, it has proved to be a huge cause for major problems in history.

Even with the rights of freedom of speech and press, I could not go onto TV and start waving my dick around. (Before watershed)

You can't do that on TV when children are watching. You can't do that here on a forum that allows children.

Same principle.

The "buyer beware" thing really doesn't work for under 16s. Hence why you have to be over 16 (or 18 (or 21)) to buy certain items. Because giving a warning IS NOT ENOUGH.

I don't really care about the stories, if it's really explicit, then I think a warning should suffice. I mean, if it has a warning, and you are surprised it's explicit, then that's your own fault

I could not go onto TV and start waving my dick around.
It's easier than it seems

I voted no; the assumption should be that a story will either be outright banned, as not conforming to our social mores or it will be read by anyone, whatever their age. Age verification is still voluntary; I am sure there are underage VIP's. A warning will do nothing to deter anyone who wants to read a story. Putting warnings on stories would be extra work to no good effect.

The author is free to tag a story as to its content as a service to readers. You can't avoid an image appearing on your screen, but stories take time to read; anyone turned off by one can just stop reading.

I see nothing wrong with posting those kinds of stories as long as a warning is put in the title.

I think you are right on the money there.
