If XCritic had a NSFW Other Would You Post?

Lots of talk about issues around posting things that are NSF. One of the thoughts with XCritic was that we'd be a place you could go to post freely babe threads, mature topics (even naked coloring books).

So I'm trying to figure out what we can do to fill that mission. Your thoughts are more then welcome. One Idea that has been passed around a lot is to have an XCritic Other that is NSFW but does not have a lot of adult ads. (maybe text links or something unabtrusive).

Would love your 2cents

No, I've posted over there but the threads suck and no one posts anything. There should just be a NSFW Other here that includes topics that include more than things that are related to sex.

Its a porn site. While I would like an otter where it is occasionally NSFW, I don't want an otter that by definition is always NSFW.

Sorry dude, xcritic is as barren as joltaddicts crotch. The few times I've been there it was a bunch of blog stuff. And, it seemed geared for the people in the industry instead of just j6p.

Er... isn't that kind of what the XCritic forum already is? Do people there have a lot of serious, in-depth conversations about the state of the porn industry or something?

One of the main problems of XCritic, as many people have pointed out, is the lack of activity, which I think has to do with the spreading of topics amongst a large amount of forums. Adult Talk was a lot busier because there weren't so many forums.

Not to mention, many posts just make me ill at XCritic. And that's saying something, given I frequent here.

Another thing, I remember back when if you heard there was a nude of a celebrity it was in adult talk here the same day. When that wrestler chick Maria was in Playboy I went to xcritic weeks later and there wasn't a single photo of her there.

I miss Adult Talk. It was exactly what you're looking for. We were able to post NSFW while keeping the Otter spirit. I've looked at XCritic twice and it didn't feel inviting.

Because no one asked for it. That's the problem. When Lohan's nude released that day, I asked for it and it has been posted at Xcritic.

Agreed.

Plus, sorry, I don't want a porn site on my browser history, whether I'm at work or not (other people sometimes use my computer at home, including kids). Posting on DVDTalk and occasionally wandering into AdultTalk is MUCH, MUCH less farther along that line than posting at an actual porn site.

I post most of the times at work, so I can't be caught going to a porn site.

I personally think that the most helpful adult threads were the ones in Otter. It changed once it had its own forum (it got a bit more "porny" for lack of a better term) and its even more changed now that it has its own site.

Then again this is from someone who always read the Advisor first before looking at any pictures on Playboy.

Yeah - my work filter blocks xcritic but didn't block adult talk. I'd rather have a nsfw other, too (that I could still view at work but I can shut the door so its ok).

Ditto, since I don't have a home computer anymore I would never be able to post there.

I refuse to frequent a porn forum that prohibits pics of sexual activity. Seriously, if you're going to be something, BE it. Stop pussy-footing around.

Have a forum at xcritic where pictures of sexual activity is allowed, an x-rated forum. Afterall, it is xcritic.com, not rcritic.com. And I also agree that there are too many forums over there, cut them down to four or five.

My 2 cents? Bring back adult talk as an "r" rated forum, nude pics allowed as well as sexual talk, but no graphic pictures. That'll be your NSFW forum. Then make Xcritic.com more, well, x-rated.

As far as having a NSFW forum over there, no, I wouldn't be posting on a regular basis.

Unbelievable...you STILL DON'T GET IT.

People don't want to post on a porn site. Why are you in denial over this?
