This page describes the scope of Freedom Porn, defining the types of media and textual information that is welcome at this project.

Copyright

Per Freedom Porn:copyrights only freely licenced or public domain content is allowed here. Even when media would otherwise be allowed, one cannot upload it here if it cannot be kept, copied, altered, and redistributed after alteration for any purpose.

Nothing stated below can be interpreted to allow copyright violations or media not licenced with at least one free licence.

Media themes

Pornographic content

Ths is to be interpreted widely. Any media which is intended to arouse sexual thoughts, to appear erotic, or to cause that tingling feeling inside, as well as lewd, lascivious, smutty, sexy, erotic, and other such content can become part of this project.

Although commonsly pornography is legally defiined as depictions that cause sexual thoughts that are without artistic merrit, there is no such limitation here.

Pornographic content can be of all different media types, but the intention of this project is to strive for the maximum use of free standards, thus where free containers or codecs for a specific type exist they should be prioritised over the use of non-free counterparts.

Historical erotic art

Historical erotic art, that is in public domain is automatically within scope of our project.

Sexually educational content

Media intended to educate users of sexual practices, objects, body anatomy, etc. can be uploaded.

Special care needs to be taken when uploading depictions of sex toys all by themselves. Such things as a general shape of a vibrator cannot be copyrighted, and only a picture of it has copyright. On the other hand if there is a brand-name sex toy, it is likely to hold copyright of its own, and a photo of such a toy becomes a “derivative work” and can be freely licenced only if all the copyright holders agree (in this case: the photographer and the designer).

Nudity and naturalism

Media portraying nudism and naturalism is welcome to be uploaded, even though it is not pornographic by its nature.

To list some of the media which we are looking for (keeping in mind that it is a representative rather than an exclusive list): World Naked Bike Ride, World Naked Run, public nudity protests.

Content preserved from censorship

Nude or sexually related content on free media repositories, that is at risk of censorship there, can be mirrored to our project.

See Category:Wikimedia preserved content as an example of such mirroring.

Sexual politics

Radical, revolutionary, and liberational content that deals with sex-positivism, feminism, queer struggles, lgbt rights, gender liberation, sexual freedom of speech, and non-capitalist sexual interaction can be uploaded and shared here.

Event announcements

Freedom Porn forwards announcements for other projects of interest, specifically of events that viewers may be interested in. If the media is needed for such announcements, it can be uploaded here (provided that it is freely licenced). This, however, should not be abused. If the relation of the event is only tangential and there are other places where such material can reside without fear of censorship, then it should be placed there, and only linked from this site.

Free software for similar projects

Freedom Porn tries to encourage similar to itself “competing” projects which may wish to start up. Thus a lot of tools that are created for our site are published under a free licence at Freedom Porn:free technology.

Out of scope

Freedom Porn accepts a lot more than most other projects when it comes to freely licenced sexual media, but that does not mean that there are some restrictions on the project's scope. Following are types of content which should not be uploaded here.

Hidden cam, telescopic shots, non-consenting distribution of private nudity

Copyright only deals with the right of the person who is holding the camera; therefore it is possile to create a freely licenced image of somebody's nudity, when that individual does not even know that one is being photographed. However, such content goes very much against the idea of Ethical Smut and should not be uploaded here. If administrators will find such media, it will be deleted.

It does not prevent the media for hidden cam fetishes to be uploaded. There is nothing wrong with populating Category:spying fantasy, but they should be of consenting and knowing people, use your imagination how to make it appear like the camera is hidden.

Stuff created by friends of Gays and Lesbians

Often on the internet people upload files of their friends with the names like "Fag John.jpeg" or "My friend Sussy is a dyke.gif". On Freedom Porn we support submission of media depicting all sexualities and all genders, but this doesn't mean that we allow cyberbullying.
