    Ah wonderful - I'm glad that cleared things up. As always, if you're unsure about anything please ask :)

    I'll go and update the rules now to say "Unnecessary Expletives" for clarity now.

    As for the coffee stain, I'm awfully sorry about that :P

    And Fluffbags - just please be careful, that stuff's bloomin' slippery on laminate! ;)

    Jess ...Last night I bumped into an old female workmate with her family, she married at 16 and is now a grandmother of 8 and still married. Is the life starts at 18 rule due to other countries laws or to preserve the ambiance of the forum?

    Isn't it a legality to sell sex toys ect only to those 18 or over? So I just assumed it was because they have the rules of selling the items ect, which then if we're posting about sexual experiances under the age of 18 could be a little confusing for some people, and then is also in a grey area for their licence? If you even need a licence? lol

    Hey Gunther

    Definitely. Having 'life start at 18' keeps things simple for all users of the forum. The age of consent for intercourse and marriage is 16 in the UK also, but we still prefer to keep the guidelines clear for everyone by maintaining '18' as the key age.

    I totally understand the new rules but can someone explain why my recent post in the thread entitled 'Sex on the Brain' was pulled and in fact why the thread in its entirety appears to have been pulled?

    As I recall there was nothing in my post that could (I think!) have been construed as offensive and was simply a response to the original poster.

    Hey LV

    That thread was pulled due to the original post, not your reply.

    The original post was discussing sexual acts before the age of 12 so I pulled the entire thread down.

    I had only noticed it after you replied so that's probably why it seemed it had been taken down in response to your post, but it wasn't, honest! :)

    I love the way lovehoney never tell us off or banned us if we brake the rules.
    They just ask us so nicely not to do it please.
    What lovely people you are! =)

    Hells Bells - I hadn't spotted that!

    Totally see why the thread was pulled and relieved to find it wasn't something I'd said.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Jess quick question about profiles and contact details,

    Many of us do have contact details on our profiles, for the adopt a toy thread and as a support network for members who are going through tough times but might not be comfortable putting all the details on the forums.

    Is this still within the rules? Once in a blue moon I get an 'interesting' email which get read but never responded to. I get more junk/spam/phishing/viagra ads on my business email so having difficulty seeing why it would be an issue.

    Hey GG

    We never encourage sharing of any personal information on our site for a couple of main reasons:

    a) Once you post online your information is completely public, meaning anyone can access your details and bombard you with junk, hack your account, share your details without your knowledge or anything else they wish to do with it. It's just not safe so we ask that you don't do it.

    b) Lovehoney isn't a hook up / chat site. As soon as personal information is shared it's impossible for us to moderate and protect our forum members from potential abuse. To keep everything running like a well oiled vehicle, we prefer to keep everything out in the open. This also means other members can learn from your dicussions.

    Having said all of this, it is up to you where you share your own information. If you feel comfortable putting contact details on your profile (not on the forum) then that's absolutely fine, just remember that this information is totally public, to members and non-members alike :)

    Hey MissChar

    It is indeed correct :)

    Although 'life starts at 18' at Lovehoney, we're not daft and understand (and expect) that the odd community member is probably younger (or older!) than they say they are. Sadly, through a computer screen, there's nothing we can do to confirm or deny someone's age. We just have to trust you! Technically speaking, as soon as someone is old enough to work a PC and own a debit card, there's nothing we can do to stop them joining the community and shopping with us.

    Our job is to protect those people when they do stumble on our forums. As long as all of the other rules are being adhered to, there should be no opportunity for a youngster to be 'damaged' by any extreme images / stories / references.

    Obviously the national age of consent in the UK is 16, and from that age you can have as much sex as you like! Having said this we do ask that all community members refrain from discussing sexual acts before the age of 18. We don't want anyone discussing anything which could be potentially pornographic / skimming the lines of underage sex / unclear for a youngster who may be visiting our site.

    In addition, the national age of consent around the world varies from country to country. We have community members from all over the world, and by keeping discussions 18 and above, everyone has the opportunity to join in and feel fully comfortable with all of the discussions on the forums.

    Lets be honest this is a site about sex toys and our experiences and just to have friendly conversation , not to go into graphic detail like dirty talk. It makes people feel uncomfortable.
