what are the rules for 'adult' themed contests?
This thread is adult themed regarding adult themed contests.


I would like to submit contests & giveaways that are adult themed. I have hookup for these sex themed contests, some are blogs & some are simply entry forms, others go into more detail.

What are the limits that I can submit? I don't want to waste my time & I don't want to do anything against the rules. I submitted a vibrator & sex 101 book complete with wedge pillow just now. I have seen vibrator contests here before. Are other adult toys out of the question or are they OK? I would also like to submit a photo contest with a fleshlight as a prize. Acceptable?

MODs, if this thread breaks the rules of the site, you can delete. I just ask that you PM me regarding the rules. Please don't delete if it's not against the rules due to uptights complaining.



I know there are people who are unfortunately against these types contests as having their own category has been discussed before, but there are probably more people against ONESI contests & they seem to be here to stay.

My opinion on this is that if it is a legitimate sweepstakes that meets all of the current criteria for being listed here, it should be allowed to be listed here. As has been pointed out several times with the blog sweeps and the OLS rating system, people enter for various different things, and what one person may not have an interest in, somebody else will.
Perhaps a heading of "ADULT" could be added to the title of the sweep, as was/is done with the blog listings.
Now, having said that, I don't think it would be a good idea to list a giveaway that is actually being done via a "pornographic" website.

It wouldn't bother me at all but I would think that since you have to be 13 or older to be a member on OLS that the sweeps would have to stay on the pg-13 rated side. If you had adult themed sweeps maybe you'd have to have a special section and have to check a disclaimer that you were 18 or older to go in to view them. Then again, who knows, I'm not a webmistress.

As far as I know, there's NO SPECIFIC RULES regarding ADULT THEMED contest
or sweeps.... all the ones I've seen here on OLS just have it NOTED in the title
that it's an ADULT THEMED CONTEST so some members won't be offended.


Good Luck .... I'll be looking for your listings!

I would maybe ask (an editor) to put a warning if there are pictures with some explicit content on the page. Personally I have nothing against it, have entered there before but I am usually sweeping with the kids around and don't want any surprises of naked flesh when I click the link - would like a *photographic warning*

I guess there are rules. Some of the ones I submitted yesterday for vibrators have disappeared.

I agree that they should be allowed, it should be up to the person entering what they feel is appropriate.

I am typically too cheap to buy such goodies as mentioned above, but would love the chance to win some! The fleshlight might be a bit, uh, intense, but I have enjoyed seeing contests for things that vibrate!

I was thinking a sticky thread kind of like Hasama's corner but one for adults only. Granted there may not be any way to verify age before clicking but if labeled as adult content only it would be up to the parents (who should be supervising their minors online anyways) to make sure they are not clicking on the thread lol.
