Ads should respect user preferences and comply with legal regulations, so we don’t allow certain kinds of adult content in ads and destinations.
This is based on evidence and the real-life experience of sex workers themselves that criminalization makes them less safe.
We reached this position by consulting a wide array of individuals and groups, including but not limited to: sex workers, survivor and abolitionist groups, HIV agencies, women’s and LGBTI rights activists, Indigenous women’s groups, anti-trafficking groups and leading academics.
Some kinds of adult-oriented ads and destinations are allowed if they comply with the policies below and don’t target minors, but they will only show in limited scenarios based on user search queries, user age, and local laws where the ad is being served.
