Eclipse on a Roll

The whole thread is freakin' hilarious.

Psychic Line

Let's all predict the locking post that is sure to come. (since a shop was called out with a direct link)
Whoever comes closest wins...uh...something awesome.

My guess:

Please do not call out Etsy sellers on the forum. Please do not post links to adult websites. If you see any items you think don't belong on Etsy, please report it using the "flag this item" link or email flagged [!at] etsy.com.

Please treat other users with respect and understand that behind every avatar is a real person. (or sometimes a whole factory full of real people)

Please see the Do's and Dont's regarding mature items. Tasteful nudes of hot chicks are allowed on Etsy. Please understand that behind every Etsy user is a behind. We just don't want to see all of them them.




Mis-Tagged
I once saw a painting tagged as "erotic nude".
It was of a fat naked guy with a small endowment and I felt misled because it was not in the LEAST bit erotic. Artistic and well painted, yes, but erotic? NO.
Please do not mistag your nudies.



Rules

non-erotic nudes are permitted on Etsy but they should not use the tag erotic. If a nude does not pass the boner test it is not erotic.

The funniest part is compare the locking post to my prediction. Pretty damn close, eh?

ShrugItOff said...

Eclipse is smart *and* damn witty too!

i loved this whole thread, eclipse's post was the icing on the cake and it all rolled along quite nicely until RobWhite came ........






eventually with the lock


(maybe reading the bjtutorial link Pie posted would have speeded 'things' up)

In that case YES there is pornography on etsy. Nude models are one thing but a nude model on top of another nude model or a nude model with parts of another nude model in their mouth or body IS pornography under your definition

I wish I had the chance to ask her if the reason why she considered nude people touching each other to be pornography because SHE is sexually excited by it. I consider it art on Etsy, but I guess she gets girl boners from it ...

---------------------------------
That thread was only locked so Admin could spend their time learning great bj techniques. The forum went quite quiet for an hour or so afterwards, everyone was busy learning a new craft.

Now that you mention it Pie, I did notice a lot of pearl necklaces listed shortly afterwards.

jodie nicholson said...

And I noticed a lot of dicks in the fora....

*chokes on coffee*


Pie, you crack me up!



(and this is a craft they didn't already know? No wonder there's only that ONE Admin baby being flaunted at us constantly)

Grace said...

Well, Etsy must have learned something from that link, because the site keeps going down!

eclipse said...

LMAO grace!!
Rokali has been trying his best but he just can't get it to stay up.
















THE SITE!!!!
cheeky monkeys.

Grace said...

Well, if I'm not going to get any action tonight, I may as well just roll over and go to sleep.

If this keeps up, I'm afraid it's going to be grounds for divorce.

mememe said...

Fabulous. The whole thread. 5 stars, must read, highly recommend, blockbuster hit of the summer.

Alorinna said...

Yuk - naked guys??? Eww. Only hot girl on girl action qualifies as porn!

Seriously though, this was damn funny.

SoCali said...

That's some good writin' there, eclipse.

i have to admit that thread cracked me up too. AND i went on a hunt for the porn and came up with NOTHING. why can't i find it? what kind of tags do people put on their porn on etsy? i found some tagged porn but they weren't really porn. sigh...

eclipse said...

Every time I see this blog title I picture myself on a big kaiser roll, with mustard, and a giant is about to eat me.
noooooooooooooooo!

From handmade to handjob, Etsy's got it all.
