I cant even begin to imagine the lack of intelligence that would accompany such an assumption. To see things like Topless, Glamour, Fetish and then Adult and to think Adult, in that list, meant they are all grown ups. Someone like that... I'd be concerned they'd have problems walking and breathing at the same time.




It's not as extraordinary as you may think and it's not just newbies and stupid* people.

For people involved in commercial pay sites, even a site that depicts fully clothed women wearing uniforms or flashing their panties are classified as "Adult web sites" and this terminology is used fairly consistently by acquiring banks, payment processors, and gateway providers. If I hadn't seen prominent descriptions (and, later, threads discussing the terminology) I would very certainly have "Adult" currently ticked on my profile for this reason, even though I'm not looking to hire models for genres that are "Adult" under the definition  used by Purestorm.





* Admittedly, I may well be stupid, but even if so, that wasn't the reason for not knowing intuitively that "Adult" had a different meaning here.

If you make a casting call for a fetish genre, you're required by the rules to tick the Adult flag, even if the shoot is fully clothed and has no "Adult" content.

As a result, nearly all my castings have had the "Adult" flag, and to clarify matters I often add "This is NOT an Adult shoot" in the title.

I don't have "Adult" selected in my list of work genres on my profile, because I'm not seeking models for "Adult" shoots as generally udnerstood (and fairly clearly defined) here.


I know the 'fetish rule' which is why I was very careful in my post to mention that those who have 'fetish' in their pofile should be able to select 'adult' when they create a casting.

May I ask why you don't fave 'fetish' on your profile, if (as you say) 'nearly all my castings' are fetish?

Understood: I mentioned that to clarify it for anyone who wasn't aware of this and may have not have realised the significance in this context.

There isn't a box for Fetish.

I don't actually do "glamour", but since "Nude" and "Topless" aren't genres in my case but just (sometimes) elements of my shoots, I felt I had to tick at least one item that I do consider a genre, peferrably one that indicates that my shoots have a sexual rather than artistic purpose, and  "glamour" seems the best fit.

My profile notes say in the first sentence that I shoot fetish content, though.

Perhaps "Adult" should simply be replaced by "Porn" ? laugh
