Is "NSFW" against Fiverr rules?

I notice that NSFW is a popular label in art, I would like to know where or what is the line regarding to how NSFW can something be to be considered porn or “adult” material?

I would be interested on making a gig specializing on that, as there are many, but it´s important to me to stay inside of Fiverr guidelines. I see things in NSFW art that are IMO clearly porn, including direct in the act portrayals.

Where can I find something more specific regarding what is allowed on this?

Hi there , you can check the ToS [ https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service ]

I apologise for I am about to sound condescending:

when I asked where I could find something more specific regarding what´s allowed on this, I meant something more specific than the ToS as they DONT define how they evaluate something as “adult” or not. I would have expected nudity would be the line, but I see MANY gigs that cross it, showing both nudity and even ■■■■■■ acts.

Yes … please read the terms and conditions carefully

I think, specifically, what you’re looking for is this (third section), which is, indeed a part of the ToS: https://www.fiverr.com/community/standards/objectionable-content

The ToS itself reads:

Gigs and/or users may be removed by Fiverr from the Site for violations of these Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards, which may include (but are not limited to) the following violations and/or materials:
Adult oriented services, Pornographic, Inappropriate/Obscene

and

Non-Permitted Usage
Adult Services & Pornography - Fiverr does not allow any exchange of adult oriented or pornographic materials and services.

Fiverr does not allow * Adult oriented services, Pornographic, Inappropriate/Obscene. Just because someone else is doing it, doesn’t mean they should be offering those services. It also doesn’t mean you can get away with it, just because someone else has gotten away with it. If you have a specific gig you want to offer but aren’t sure if it is allowed, send your idea for your gig to customer service and ask if it is permitted.

These NSFW gigs typically get removed after being reported, but some of them still exist on the platform. I say it’s best to get permission first, rather than get a warning on your account and have the gig removed.

Documentary Exception

Fiverr will allow nudity when the primary purpose is educational, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitous. For example, a video edit ordered by a midwife depicting proper breastfeeding technique would be appropriate, while creating a video with clips from the same film but used out of context for the purpose of ■■■■■■ gratification, would not. Out-of-context nudity from indigenous communities, protests, medical procedures, childbirth, artistic performances, breastfeeding or like, may not meet our documentary exception.

Do not post, offer or ask for:

  • Nude or adult related images or videos.
  • Sex or ■■■■■■ partners.
  • Sex chats or conversations.
  • The execution of fetish scenarios.
  • Sexually gratifying modeling.
  • Content that depicts explicit ■■■■■■ activity, unless the conditions for “documentary exception,” as listed above, exist.

The above is from the Community Standards.

Thanks :slight_smile: This is exactly what I was looking for. Okay, so with this in mind it seems that all those services are infringing.

Though… I find it very strange, some are videos showing art of this kind, and this must be approved by fiverr… so… weird.

I understand the need for feedback and your want to “not” be redirected to ToS. For this reason, my “career” on fiverr has been a sociological experiment, designed to organize the specifics of things that constitute “adult” behaviors.

Here is a quick list of things I have done/said that are not allowed:

  • I offered a service to offend other services
  • I offered a leg breaking service. To be fair, I specified that I wouldn’t join any neighborhood gangs … still, fiverr didn’t dig it.
  • I started a gig to make “gigs great again.”
  • I invited everybody to “Foure-rr.” Then I realized there’s a foure-rr.
  • I started a “describe yourself nude gig.” Then I cancelled all orders. That stuff is for sickos.
  • I started a “Post your best gig here” thread. Then I changed the name to “post your biggest rip off’s”
  • I started a gig where I called out all the psychics. But they knew I was gonna start the gig and they beat me to it.
  • I started a “I will teach you to cuss in American” gig. It was fine but the clients treated me terribly.
  • “I will: need five of your dollars” does not amuse fiverr.

That’s the short list. I wouldn’t recommend any of those behaviors. Give me a couple months and I’ll have more behaviors to not recommend.
I hope that helps.
