Nudity is still allowed as long as it's artistic, educational or a documentary
Keep those sexy videos to yourself, because Twitter has made porn a no-no on Vine.
According to the
, Twitter -- which owns the social video service Vine -- has changed its rules and terms of service this week, including a ban on sexually-explicit videos.
The rules state that videos of sex acts (whether they're alone, with other people or with objects) are forbidden. That includes sexually explicit animations.
However, nudity is still allowed as long as it's artistic, educational or a documentary. Even sexually suggestive content is welcome, but only if it's clothed.
Twitter will rely on Vine users to report sexually explicit content rather than policing the site. Those who are flagged for sexual content can have their accounts suspended until the content is removed.
But Twitter is already contacting Vine users with existing sexual content, which was posted before the rules changed. The company is seeking mass removal of any pornographic content, or users have the option to move their sexy videos to a new tool created by Twitter. This tool is only available to users to posted porn before the change in rules.
Vine is a video-sharing service that allows Twitter and Vine users to share short video clips with one another. The minimum age for using Vine, according to Twitter, is 17 years old.

If your 12 year old daughter is on the internet she is exposed to "that kind of dren." Don't be naive.

not only is she exposed, changes are it will be the first thing she sees! as you've failed to show her anything else.
We are so extremely "protective" especially when it comes to sex that getting to age 11-13 kids start to wonder how it looks for the other sex, and if they haven't been shown before that time they will start to dig themselves, either by asking their friends or the internet. it's just a healthy curiosity that is better satisfied beforehand
unfortunately the first thing they will find is probably hardcore porn. So what do we do "hide" the porn even more ?
No do the opposite, show children from a young age how things work in a normal controlled fashion, teach children about sex, about the dangers that it's normal,that you both have to agree, all that stuff before they start trying to find it out for themselves and make a real mess as they don't know what they're doing (and you can't blaim them for screwing up if you didn't explain it to them)
no; Nudity through movies, documenteries and biology lessons should be encouraged, it will satisfy the curiosity of the youth preventing them to find the craziest stuff first, and result in much more balanced relaxed posture to nudity and more safe and normal sex.

You mean the first thing she
There may be a lot of porn on the Internet, but it doesn't find you. You find it. Unless you're in Soviet Russia.
