The social media platform says sexual content can be a “legitimate form of artistic expression.”

Elon Musk’s social media platform X has updated its policies to officially allow adult content.

Under the updated guidelines, the platform formerly known as Twitter will allow users to share sexual content as long as it is consensual and clearly labeled.

The revised policy, which was updated over the weekend, states that “users should be able to create, distribute and consume materials related to sexual themes as long as they are produced and distributed consensually.”

“Sexual expression, whether visual or written, can be a legitimate form of artistic expression,” she says.

“We believe in the autonomy of adults to engage with and create content that reflects their beliefs, desires and experiences, including those related to sexuality.”

Exposure to graphic material will be restricted to children and adult users who choose not to see it, and users will not be allowed to share content that “promotes the exploitation, non-consent, objectification, sexualization or victimization of minors, and obscene conduct,” according to the law. Policy.

The change, first reported by TechCrunch, formalizes a relatively tolerant stance toward adult content that predates Musk’s purchase of Twitter in October 2022.

Unlike platforms like Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube, Twitter has never explicitly banned nudity and sexual content.

Under Musk, X has significantly reduced moderation of the platform and reinstated previously banned accounts, including those of former US President Donald Trump and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Musk has argued that he supports freedom of expression, but critics have accused the Tesla CEO of encouraging hate speech and misinformation.
