But why is any of this content considered as prohibited, especially for consenting adults? Is it specifically a result of SESTA/FOSTA? These laws were written with so much ambiguity that the platform providers, out of fear of being shut down or removed from app stores (think Apple App Store or Google Play) are prohibiting any content that could remotely be considered sexual. Frankly, I do not blame them for their fear. These regulations, applying to any content posted on their platforms, would be near impossible to police. And they can be held liable, fined or even prosecuted for said content. Even the much-touted new algorithms being used to scan for such content can’t handle the job, either erroneously tagging content, or letting others slip by that should be prohibited.
