Tumblr reverses policy, will allow nudity again

Tumblr is reversing its mature content policy and will once again allow nudity.

In new community guidelines, the blogging website said that after introducing community labels to give users control over content on their dashboard, it was “taking the next step.”

“So, even if your creations contain nudity, mature subject matter, or sexual themes, you can now share them on Tumblr using the appropriate Community Label so that everyone remains in control of the types of content they see on their dash,” the site reads.

Users can label content as generally mature or choose a specific category like “Sexual Themes” if the post contains sexually suggestive subject matter.

However, blogs that have a focus on mature content may not be eligible for certain Tumblr features, including monetization options.

While guidelines have been updated to reflect the changes, the rest of the content policies remain.

“We still don’t allow hate, spam, violent threats, or anything illegal, and visual depictions of sexually explicit acts remain off-limits on Tumblr… If you come across these types of content, please continue to report them to us,” Tumblr wrote.
