ADULT CONTENT: What is it?

There seems to be a bit of confusion about ADULT CONTENT (AC) here in Second Life. Here at Tribe we have always adopted an 'live and let live' policy : To each their own and what you do in the privacy of your own home is exclusively YOUR business as long as it is within TOS and covenant, of course. Basically, as defined by the Knowledge Base on the SL website, AC means:

"The Adult designation applies to Second LifeƂ® Regions that host conduct or display content that is sexually explicit or intensely violent, or depicts illicit drug use. Any Region must be designated Adult and therefore require account verification, if it advertises or publicly promotes the following:
Representations of intensely violent acts, whether or not photo-realistic (for example, depicting death, torture, dismemberment or other severe bodily harm)
Photo-realistic nudity; photo-realistic means that an image either is or cannot be distinguished from a photograph
Expressly sexually themed content, spaces or activities (whether or not photo-realistic); we will broadly define what is "sexually themed" to include any sexually oriented activities and conduct. "

Now the above qualifiers apply to events , groups , regions and even classifieds. What the above qualifiers do NOT apply to is what you do in the privacy of your own home!! You do NOT need to be in an AC region to have a sex bed, have sexually explicit poseballs, or even to have marijuana plants on your property. The key to ALL of this is the following phrase: if it advertises or publicly promotes . The bottom line ( no pun intended) is that the ADULT CONTENT policy has brought NO changes to what you can and can not do at TRIBE ISLANDS. So...Just have you have always done from day one...relax, have fun and ENJOY!!!
