Community & Content Guidelines


Last Updated: May 10, 2021

Sharesome was created to provide a safe place to share adult content and one where everyone is free to explore their sexuality in a positive and mindful way. Everything on Sharesome was created by you, the Sharesome users. Our job is to make sure that Sharesome remains an open, consensual, and safe place, so everybody on the site can have a good time.

Sharesome is a safe space. A place where you can share and live out your fantasies and desires, contribute to the community and grow with it in an open and honest way, free from prejudice or judgment.

Sharesome is made up of a series of diverse communities built around topics. Not every topic might be for you, but we ask that you always be open-minded and non-judgemental. All the different topics are defined by their respective rules (enforced by moderators) and they thrive only through community participation.

Sharesome and its large and diverse communities can only exist if we share the same values and follow a basic set of rules. These platform-wide rules are enforced by the admins.

Friendly and respectful conduct will go a long way. The community will forgive minor slip-ups, but serious infringements will result in the admins taking immediate steps to ensure that everyone feels comfortable. 

The three most important basic rules

1. Age: The 18+ rule

We do not want to see any content of minors (people under the age of 18) or someone who appears to be a minor on Sharesome. These include images, videos, illustrations, computer-generated imagery, or stories, regardless of the amount of nudity (or lack thereof).

We also do not allow anything that sexualizes a minor, including fantasy content (e.g., stories, “loli”/”shota”/anime cartoons), that depicts, encourages, or promotes pedophilia, or child sexual exploitation.

2. Consent: The ‘No Involuntary Pornography’ rule

We do not allow the distribution of content showing any person in a state of nudity or engaged in any act of sexual conduct apparently created or posted without their permission. This includes content that has been faked.

Content of intimate parts of a person’s body, even if the person is clothed or in public, are also not allowed if apparently created or posted without their permission and put in a sexualized context (e.g., “creepshots” or “upskirt” imagery).

Additionally, do not post content of another person for the specific purpose of faking explicit content or soliciting “lookalike” pornography (e.g., deepfakes).

3. Copyright: The ‘don’t steal other people’s stuff’ rule

You should only upload content that you have produced or which you were given permission (either by license or by legal exceptions/limitations like fair use) to post on Sharesome.

If someone has taken your content and uploaded it on Sharesome without your permission, we will take it down. Check our DMCA page for more information on how to report copyright infringements.

Community Guidelines

These are the things we expect you and each member of our community to do when using the site:
Have fun with it!
Seriously, enjoy yourself! Sharesome is an open and welcoming space for a diverse group of people. Your openness is welcome here. Make the most out of this new social experience and put yourself out there! Join topics that interest you, read what other people have to say, participate in discussions and strike up conversations with people that catch your attention. Who knows, maybe you will even become a verified content creator yourself. We are just saying...

Mutual respect is important.
Having respect for one another is the key to any community, so do not be a creeper. Treat the other people on Sharesome the same way you would want to be treated and do not forget that being vulgar is not sexy. People do not come to Sharesome to be abused (unless of course, that is their kink, in which case, we do not judge).

Sharesome is a place for fun, not for attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people. We make sure that everyone can use Sharesome free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence. Users or topics that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.

Let folks know what you think.
Feedback is part of the experience, and when done with respect, can be a great way to make friends, tell stories, and make your time on Sharesome richer. So, leave comments, share ideas and remember: this is your world, make it rock.

Remember to play it nicely:
“I personally don’t like your outfit.”
…is ok.
“You look like a piece of shit in these pants.” not ok.

Keep private conversations private.
Private conversations between two users should stay private unless of course, the two people who were having the conversation both agree to it being posted publicly.

Do not spam – and limit cross-posting!
Keep your posts and comments meaningful and genuine. We all know some things are better said once – preferably in a deep, sexy voice, for maximum effect.

Nobody likes spam, except other than spammers. We do everything to protect you from it. This includes cross-posting. Anyone posting or sharing the same content more than three times a day anywhere publicly on Sharesome might face banning.

Sometimes users add a list of related keywords/hashtags to a post or topic,  and that is ok. But sometimes users add too many keywords/hashtags, oftentimes unrelated to the content of the post, in order to increase the visibility of said post. In cases like these, we reserve the right to e remove all keywords/hashtags and issue a warning. If it happens repeatedly, the user is out.

Privacy Violations / Doxxing / Exposure
On Sharesome, each person is comfortable with a different level of privacy. Some people do not mind using their full real name and others cover their tattoos in pictures. We decided that we do not allow some personally identifying or confidential information on Sharesome. This includes phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers, unlisted contact information, or private photos of your ex's junk (no matter how remarkable).

Do not use Sharesome to deceptively obtain personal information.

Finding your private information online, posted by others, can also make way for harassment and threats to your livelihood. Doxxing (or Doxing) is a term used for sensitive information being shared on the internet, usually without the owner knowing about it. While info such as other social media profile names may be accepted, anything like real names, phone numbers, addresses, social security numbers, unlisted contact information are not.

We know that being exposed is a fetish for some people, and as long as they post pictures of themselves, that is completely ok. But the same rules for personally identifying or confidential information apply: No phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, or social security numbers. Do not “expose” other people if you can not provide 2257 documents like an ID and a model release. Only with these documents, we will treat that as “voluntary exposure”.

Content Guidelines

It is very important for us that you can be yourself on Sharesome!

Our content policy is not black and white, as we do not think it would be healthy for it to be so.

A lot of different things influence our content policy:

The first one is the law and the fact that laws are different (and ever-changing) in different countries. For example, there are obscenity laws in the US, Canada, and some European countries, that prohibit the content of certain topics, while in other countries those topics are ok.

There are also compliance rules to follow when we work with different business partners, like hosting providers, payment providers, or others.

Then there are our beliefs as makers of Sharesome. We (the employees, founders, investors) do not want to run a platform that contains content that we would oppose in our private life.

And then, there is you, the community. The latter applies to you as well. You do not want to be part of something that supports topics that you would oppose in your private life.

There is always a discrepancy between being non-judgemental and certain values. It is our responsibility to try to do the right things and create an environment where a diverse group of people can coexist in harmony.

The big and major idea behind all of these is: if it involves consenting adults and it poses no real health risk, it is allowed.
We’re just repeating Rule No. 1 of our basic rules.

Under no circumstances can someone post content that includes a minor, either partially or fully, suggestively or not.

We also do not allow anything that sexualizes a minor.

No Actual Incest
You cannot post any pics or vids that display real incest between lineal ancestors or lineal descendants.

Incest as roleplay is right on the edge (e.g., stepsiblings), however, while we cannot be 100% sure, if we see twins, they are out. For the rest, we do check for similarities between the people involved and make an in-house decision based on that.

No! Put the cat down! Due to concerns of animal abuse, we do not allow the sharing of any content containing sex or sex acts with animals (this is known as bestiality) or between animals. We also do not allow people to look for others to participate in bestiality.

Also, content featuring animal genitalia is not allowed, as well as any kind of imagery hinting at sexual acts with or between animals.

Illustrations of so-called sexualized furries (e.g., furry pornography, yiff art) are right on the edge.

Also, our strict rules regarding minors apply for furries as well, so no cub-age characters whatsoever on Sharesome.

While we value artistic freedom, we draw the line where human characters are involved with non-human characters (anthropomorphic characters). 

Do not step on anybody’s balls. Literally. Or any other part of their body, for that matter. Crushing can lead to many injuries and even loss of reproductive capabilities.

We also do not allow any content that has to do with the crushing of any type of animal, either dead or alive, in a sexual or kinky context. Animals include, but are not limited to mammals, insects, and fish.

The crushing of inanimate objects is perfectly acceptable.

Blood Play
No wounds or blood allowed. We do not want anyone hurting themselves for someone else’s pleasure. Several diseases can be transmitted only through blood. So, no visible real or realistic blood on Sharesome.

Also, the use of edge or picture instruments is not allowed.

Scat Play (Feces)
If we see something brown coming out of your butthole, you are out of here. Different bacteria can live inside fecal matter. This is a major health risk, and we are not okay with that.

Important: scat play does not include diaper play, anal play, or enemas/clyster (whereby the 'bloating' is okay, while the 'ejected material' is not).

Hateful Slurs/Terms
We do not promote censorship and are passionate about our defense of free speech. But using a hateful slur on Sharesome to attack other people or marginalized or vulnerable groups of people, in public or private, is a big no-no.

Marginalized or vulnerable groups include, but are not limited to, groups based on their actual and perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability.

We use common sense to determine what is a hateful slur - or, to say it with Justice Potter Stewart's famous sentiment: "I know it when I see it."

Within the context of play between consenting adults, hateful slurs are only permitted in private conversations and between friends only.

An exception to this rule is using a slur when referring to oneself as a form of self-empowerment.

We also recognize that there are historical differences in how certain slurs are considered hateful or problematic. So, we make some differences in how we treat some slurs:
- Irrespective of context, we do not allow the use of the n-word ('er' variant) in a topic's title, description, or rules.
- Irrespective of context, we do not allow the use of any Nazi symbols or names anywhere on Sharesome.

Involuntary Pornography
We’re just repeating Rule No. 2 of our basic rules.

Do not post or share any sexually graphic content if you do not have consent for it.

Involuntary pornography can include:
- Images taken during the course of an intimate relationship (including images you took of yourself and shared with the intent to keep them private);
- Hidden recordings;
- Images stolen from electronic devices (phones, computers, tablets, etc.);
- Recordings of sexual assault;
- Etc.

This includes content that has been faked. While computer-generated (e.g., CGI) porn is completely ok, we do not want to see your neighbor’s face photoshopped onto a porn star’s body, or a celebrity having computer-generated (e.g., CGI) sex with a hobbit.

Posting or sharing intimate images without consent is against both civil and criminal law. It is illegal.

Do not promote or glorify self-harm
Any account found encouraging or urging users to embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or to cut, harm themselves, or commit suicide will result in a suspension without warning.

Do not post violent content
Do not post content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people; likewise, do not post content that glorifies or encourages the abuse of animals.

Deceptive or Fraudulent Links
Do not post deceptive or fraudulent links in your posts. This includes giving links misleading descriptions, tagging an incorrect “source” in a post, setting misleading click-through links on images, or embedding links to interstitial or pop-up ads.

Copyright or Trademark Infringement
We’re just repeating Rule No. 3 of our basic rules.

Respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. If you are not allowed to use someone else's copyrighted or trademarked work (either by license or by legal exceptions/limitations like fair use), do not post it.

Full-Length Videos
On the same note as above, while at times we do appreciate a nice movie from start to finish, that is not something we want to be doing here. Instead of the whole thing, you could post clips or cut scenes from it instead. It would also give you more things to post, wouldn’t it?

We know ‘Knife Play’ is a thing. If they are not real weapons and are not used to cause harm or injury, we are good with it. Guns, however, are starting to push it. Just do not use any of them to hurt or simulate hurting someone. Dull blades and water guns are recommended.

Bite marks are awesome! Just do not overdo it. We said “marks”, not “wounds”. If we see permanent damage inflicted in any content, it may be removed.

Just like other situations, roleplay with this kink is okay, if it is not too real and the one under hypnosis is not controlled into harming themselves or others.

Forced Sex / Rape
To clarify, this does not concern BDSM enthusiasts. Being tied up is not the same as being forced. On that note, roleplay is also accepted, if you do not go overboard. Content in which one of the people involved is seen as being in pain, crying, struggling, or being hit is likely to be reported and removed.

Horror / Snuff
This one is simple. Are the people in the material still breathing at the end? Cool. Killing is not sexy. This also includes material in which homicide is simulated or hinted at.

No. Just, no. We also want the people in the material to START OFF breathing, too. As stated before, even simulating necrophilia is not accepted. Actors may be actors; however, it gives the wrong idea of what the community stands for.

Vomit / Puke
No. While we know it is a fetish for certain people, it is a big turn-off for most others. Plus, this may lead to health problems, like bulimia. Keep your food down.

Extreme (Violent) Fisting
While fisting is allowed, anything taking it too far and potentially endangering the people seen in the material is not. Keep it below the elbow.

Forced Intoxication
Did we not say consenting? Alcohol can make you think you can dance and that texting your ex at 3 AM is a good idea. But it is not for an online community. Drunk or drugged people have no place on Sharesome. We are ok with people getting high, but they should do that in the safe space of their home, and together with friends and family.

Hard Drugs
Same as above. Since marijuana has started getting legalized, this is allowed. Other high-risk drugs, however, are not. Please stay away from anything that is not legal in your area! Basically, it’s only cool if the people in the content are lucid.

Even worse than the previous two. If they are unconscious, they are not consenting. This substance may cause kidney and liver damage. If hospitals stopped using it, they must know something. Makes sense? Good.

Now, we get eating out. But not in that way. We do not think that we need to explain why this is a health hazard.
