I’m Polar and I’m the compliance lead at SLR. I’m responsible for ensuring that SLR is a place where adults can explore their sexual needs and achieve sexual wellness in a fun, safe, consensual, legal and ethical environment.
Our approach to compliance is kink and fetish agnostic. We never want to “yuck” someone else’s “yum.” That said, we do have some content which we as a platform are unwilling to host, and there is also content which external pressures mean we cannot host.
SexLikeReal stands for sexual wellness. That means everyone in the content and their characters must consent to what is being portrayed. Content where someone lacks the capacity to consent, or is PORTRAYED as lacking that capacity, is unacceptable. That means if someone is portrayed as being underage, drunk, asleep, drugged, hypnotised or lacks the capacity to consent for any other reason we don’t want that content on our platform. We also won’t host content which is presented as being non-consensual. If you see something that you think meets these criteria, we want to know about it.
Whilst we would love to host all other legal content where everyone is consenting, there are some formal regulations imposed by financial, hosting and other service providers we are happy to respect.
SexLikeReal is sparking a public debate of what’s cool and what’s not, in order to bring clarity for the community and creators, while respecting everyone’s right as consenting adults to express themselves freely. I’m currently working on new guidelines for all our content partners that I will share with the community.
I’m really excited as you are one of the most passionate and engaged communities I have come across. I can’t wait to hear your input.
