Default Inappropriate Avatar Pictures

Hi,

I don't know how others feel about this, and I am aware this is an adult site, however, find it very distasteful to see people post avatars of themselves in what it would be understated and polite to call a "boudoire shot".

I have not run across one yet that I have found distasteful, but we each have our own levels of distaste. If you find it very objectionable I would report them to the mods and see what they have to say.

Nothing on this site bring up my "omg" look. But then again, my idea of distasteful is apparently different than others

I have avatars turned off because I find a lot of them corny rather than distasteful.

I don't exactly want to turn into the avatar police or the thought police or anything on this site, and it is an over 18 site so even the grosser ones are probably legal. Its a personal taste thing, unless I am really into someone, I just don't want to be seeing that side of them.

have you got a profile on fetlife? This is where I have this beef.... I have a hard time talking to friends about deep personal emotional things when every time they write back I get a pussy shot. I get your point, but don't have the same thresh hold I think.

Maybe you should talk to the person on PM and see if they would mind changing it because you find it offensive.

I agree, it looks desperate.
