#ff0000">IMPORTANT: No Gonzo / POV [ Clause 16]
The administration of this site consider that sexual acts between photographers and models as part of shoots ( often termed "gonzo" or "point of view" ) are unacceptable to the professional standards that most of our membership wish to see.
Photographers and models are therefore not permitted to advertise or promote in any way these activities via this site. In addition, models and photographers who engage in this style of work or activity will have their memberships cancelled.

Hardcore Boy/Girl or Male/Female Work [Clause 16]
Please note that this policy has now been revised further to prohibit ANY B/G work that involves sexual contact regardless of who the participants are.
This does not affect any artistic male/female work with no sexual contact, as per an example shown in this thread.
Note that Clause 16 Suspensions are Permanent and Irreversible.
Purestorm will not tolerate the owners of competitor portfolio hosting sites blatantly attempting to poach members from this site and will instantly terminate the accounts of any member found doing so.
Additionally, members encouraged to blatantly poach on behalf of competitor sites face Suspension if they do so either through the forums or by spamming through the internal messaging system.
It has been necessary to make this stand following a rash of poaching attempts this week from new sites.
The owner of Purestorm and his team have worked long and hard to build this site up without using underhand tactics and we Moderators see no reason to let those who have no grasp of even the most basic internet etiquette profit from that hard work.
