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 Vine blog, 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.

What's with all this "violence and gore" in the media talk anyway? The media is more pussy now than ever before. Just compare today's bullshit Robocop PG-13 kiddie flick with the original. Verhoeven's masterpiece would have been NC-17 by today's standards, hard R.

Hell movies are barely rated R anymore. People don't know what violence and gore really is today. All the violence is implied and sterilized. It's not visceral anymore.

Some silly cop drama where a cop shoots a guy and you don't even see blood...that ain't violence or gore, kids. Violence on TV? Doesn't exist today really.

THIS is violence and gore. Take your digital blood splatter Walt Disney crap and shove it.

Try Vikings on History channel. Pretty bloody.
