Who decided this was a place for "raunchy sex talk", sex is a normal and healthy activity which is discussed here usually in a rational and occasionally humourous manner. Perhaps you may try reading back through all your posts, you have only made 334, and count how many are apologies for previous provocative posts. You seem to delight in sailing close to the wind with forum rules and "digging people in the ribs". To be honest I think you have completely miss understood what the forum and its members are about. Bestiality underage sex and incest are illegal, you have touched on all three in the last 24 hrs.

I appreciate that the moderators don't monitor forums other than 'Inside LH'. So it is up to us to keep everything 'squared-away and ship-shape'.
Nope - we read every single post, every single thread, in every single category. Our overseas staff moderate during their 'working hours' which means it's a 24 hour operation. The 'report post' button is used sometimes, but 9 times out of 10 we hide or close a thread at our own discretion because it's not something we want to read or promote. Our forum is great for making friends and sharing opinions, but it does ultimately represent us as a company.

Nope again - This isn't and has never been a place for raunchy sex talk. In our rules we state:
The http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/community/forums/ is a friendly place where you can be open and honest with like-minded people, have some fun and share advice and tips. The Lovehoney Forum is for genuine, non-judgemental sex-positive chat and it's far from sleazy. The forum doesn't exist for people to find cyber sex, dogging, phone fun or real life dating.
It's a friendly, open space for people to chat and unfortunately we have to have rules to keep everyone smiling. :)
....my friend.... pop back to the thread 'Porn name alternative' and read my response to your accusation about 'incest'. You will see that this was all a big misunderstanding... on your part...... and what we need to do is have a cyber-handshake and a good belly laugh about it !!
Also read my answer regarding 'raunchy sex talk' below.
Regarding your accusation about me delving into 'under-age sex'.... that is not JUST a little 'below the belt'.
Confiding about your own 13 year-old sexual activity is pretty innocuous....everybody has been there in their own experience. Talking about an adult having sex with someone under-age is plainly illegal, offensive and entirely out of place in this Forum. Let me repeat and make it quite clear..... implying that I was discussing and promoting sex between an adult and a juvenile is entirely misleading....and I am not happy that you failed to draw the distinction. (If you could see my face now, you would see that I am really serious about this point)
I appreciate that you feel very indignant about your very mistaken supposition about what I said about your baby.... and that this indignation has greatly coloured what you have written here. As I have said.... go back to the thread... and, hopefully, you'll cool down and even see the funny side of it. : )
LH LUCY AND JESS
..... Thanks for the clarification on rules and the inappropriateness of 'raunchy sex talk'.
My use of the term 'raunchy' is derived from the front page of the Forum. Check on the left-hand side under 'Sex Tips and talk'. I'll save you the journey.... it explains that Sex Tips and Talk is the place to CHAT, MOAN AND GROAN.
I suggest you do a small survey amongst your staff and ask them if they think that could imply 'raunchy sex talk'. Raunchy means 'hot' in this context. If moaning and groaning while in the process of talking about sex doesn't imply 'hot', raunchy content, then I've been in this place under a misapprehension.
If that isn't enough justification for my assumption that 'raunchy sex talk' is legitimate in the Forum, then just have a read of what is commonly being written in posts. In my judgement, it's pretty uninhibited, in-yer-face, speak it like it is. Quite a lot of it is a mild turn-on. In short, it's pretty damned 'hot'!! 'Cold', sanitised sex talk is what you would get at the doctor's surgery. That's not what we have here..... and thank goodness!
Maybe we are talking at cross-purposes. You think by 'raunchy' I mean 'dirty (sleasy) sex talk'. Well, no, I don't mean the Forum is for that purpose. 'Up front, speak uninhibitedly, without being vulgar' is what I mean..... 'hot' but not 'dirty'. (My brain's starting to hurt !).
Listen.... I am now feeling pretty 'ganged-up on'. Maybe I have brought this, in part, upon myself (the 'raunchy' 'moan and groan' thing notwithstanding). Some of my threads have arguably been 'sailing close to the wind' as Gunter points out. This isn't an attempt to undermine the Forum (I love it here). It's an attempt to 'get things going'..... sensational chat..... hot debate....big laughs. And, no doubt, I've allowed myself to get a bit carried away in this vein.
Plainly 'getting things going' isn't something that everyone wants.... and LH, for business reasons, really wants this place to be non-controversial.... and invariably 'nice'
So I need to button it. End of story.
Other than to say 'sorry' for giving you reason to shut down some of my threads.
Rotters : )) That's a joke.... okay ?! : ))
No.... point taken. I will take a lot more care in future. And if I don't.... then I won't be able to blame you for what might happen to my profile.
And now everybody.... go mop your brow and get a cup of coffee !!
