Topics & Settings for Adult Content
Quora is open-minded about questions that address adult content, including the subject of sex.The topic of sex is sensitive and we have set ourselves the goal of creating a discussion space in which users do not feel uncomfortable. In view of this, adult content issues will only appear in your feed if you have agreed to it by (1) setting the adult content filter settings in your privacy settings in https://de.quora.com/settings/pr… to explicitly allow this content, or (2) follow a specific topic with adult content (for example, sex) that has been provided with the question.

general

Our goal is to create an environment with and on Quora where authors can write great and reusable questions and answers.General questions that can serve as reusable resources are preferred over anecdotes that affect only one person. Questions about sex should be useful and should not be funny, childish, hostile or pictorial.

Sex-related and sexually provocative images. Sexual, sexual, sexual and sexually provocative images are only allowed on pages where adult content is discussed and which has been marked with the corresponding Quora adult themes (e.g. certain adultcontent, sex and/or other issues) that limit their distribution.

Because profile pictures of users appear throughout the page, sex-related image content is not allowed in profile pictures.

Language

Sexualized and sex-related language: in answers to pages with questions related to sex. On these pages it is okay to use such language if the site is appropriately marked with certain adultcontent, sex and/or other related topics.

However, users should avoid sex-related language/content in their responses if it is not important for the quality of the response.For example, users should avoid using sexualized language to (1) bring a witty punchline or (2) an illustration, anecdote, or example that is not important to the answer.

Theme images for sex-related topics
