Tumblr announced that they have decided to ban adult content from their site completely. Their new policy includes photos, videos and gifs of "human genitals" and "female-presenting nipples" outside of birth, other health-related situations, and breastfeeding. Illustrations depicting sex acts will also not be allowed.

Explicit posts will be flagged and deleted using an algorithm.
