OMG! Tumblr is removing porn pics and videos this month!

Bad news boys, Tumblr – every fella’s favourite ‘go to’ site for dirty pics and vids - is cleaning up its act. WHAT??

Yes, this week the doddery old suits behind the social media site has unveiled their plans to rid it of any explicit adult material by December 17.

This shock move will make a huge impact on the lives of those who like to gawp at naughty pics as well as those who use the site as an outlet to share their stories, upload their sexually explicit art work and express their sexuality through porn.

The news comes a month after it was reported that the Tumblr app had been sensationally ditched from Apple’s app store after the site’s filtering system mistakenly allowed child pornography to appear on the site.

The news has caused some blogs to document each move, as Tumblr is removed and readmitted to Apple's App Store, The Verge has some more detailed reporting

Now the company’s snooty chief exec, Jeff D’Onofrio says the site has responsibilities to “different age groups, demographics, cultures, and mindsets” and will remove all – ALL - adult material from December 17.

Just to clarify that, Tumblr will remove every single bit of adult content on December 17th. Shock / Horror. 

“We spent considerable time weighing the pros and cons of expression in the community that includes adult content,” Jeff says. “In doing so, it became clear that without this content we have the opportunity to create a place where more people feel comfortable expressing themselves.”

Tumblr has warned its subscribers that any content they post that shows “real-life human genitals, female-presenting nipples” or feature sex acts will be banned immediately. However, there are exceptions such as classical artistic works and political protests that involve nudity.

Of course, Tumblr isn’t just a jack-yourself-off friendly porn site, it does do more.

It was actually set up eleven years ago for folks to express themselves via pictures, videos and slogans. As the years rumbled on, the LGBTQ+ community in particular embraced the site and found it great way of creating a community in a safe environment.

In fact, if you think Tumblr is all dick, bum and titty pics you may be surprised to learn that it can actually be a pretty educational place. If you look hard enough. there are many blogs on Tumblr that educate young gay folks about having safe and responsible sex in terms of physical and emotional unions.

Below is a screenshot of a video from Tumblr. Some super hot guy, half naked can be seen sliding his grey sweat pants down his legs - moments later, WAHEY! his dick pops out. This is pretty much why the site's is being forced to close.

Earlier this year, rumblings of change kicked in when the site was fitted with a safe filter out obscene pictures. However, various incredibly innocent pictures of same sex kissing were deemed “adult” content, upsetting the community no end when pictures of straight couples slobbering all over each other were seen as totally acceptable.

However, some fans of the site upset that the adult content is being removed have demanded of the owners if this new policy mean that some of the ‘Nazi’ content that is prevalent on the site is also flagged up as inappropriate and banned.

Just one note to end on about the future of Tumblr and that's according to Tech Crunch 22.37% of all incoming traffic to Tumblr, comes from porn or adult material, further, 11.4% of the top visited .Tumblr domains themselves are entirely adult content in their makeup. That's a big hit to take, but perhaps not as big as being removed from every single iPhone in the world. 

Could all this change at Tumblr be a life line for Twitter? After all, the micro blogging site hasn't and from the look of things isn't planning to change it's policy to exclude adult material. 

If you listen closely, you can almost hear the charge of Only Fans stars as they run to Twitter in order to keep their earnings up.
