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.

"Yeah, what's up with that ? How hard can it be to find another recognizable face'o'porn"
That's kind of the point thought. Ron Jeremy is just... Ron Jeremy. He is just known, somehow he just is.
I remember once about 5 years ago I was on a business trip walking through the Houston airport. It was, as always crowded with hundreds of people in my line of view. Over the intercom systems comes
"Ron Jeremy, please call the continental ticket counter, Mr. Ron Jeremy"
It was surely just coincidence, just someone with the same name, but I looked up and every adult male in the building had the same s#$t eating grin on their face just hearing his name... It was hilarious.

Nothing somehow about it. Guy's got a huge dick. Every guy loves to imagine he's got a big dick and he can get beautifull women with it, which is basically the whole point around porn. To top it off Ron Jeremy isn't exactly a beautifull guy either, which makes it all the more relatable for the most of us.
Don't know about you guys but i've got less of a problem imagining i'm Ron Jeremy then imagining i'm one of those tall, handsome, ripped, hairless guys in modern porn. It'd be even more work to look like them then it is to get the girls they're having sex with!
