NSFW Content on LW

There's some discussion of this on my post but I think it properly belongs on a meta post to which the mods can refer.

Points for consideration:

  • Do we want content about sex on LW at all? Yes, but only on people's own blogs? Yes, but only with a content warning? Yes, but only with some sort of NSFW tag? Yes, and with no limits?

  • It is probably a good idea to have at least a little idea what "about sex" means. Do STD etymology fact posts count? Or posts about rational romantic relationships?

  • Cursing: is it off-limits entirely? Certain words only? (Which ones?) No excessive cursing?

  • What norms apply to titles?

  • Even if the content is content-warned or on people's own blogs, the recent comments show up in the recent comments feed, which could make some people feel uncomfortable browsing LW in public.
