As everyone in the adult business knows, Mark Zuckerberg is hostile against any sexual content. His websites Facebook and Instagram do their best to banish anything of this type of content.
For the longest time, Tumblr was a blogging platform with a large NSFW community. Until December 17th, 2018. From that date forward, they blocked all sexual content.
When they stopped, several other websites offered a place for the users looking for a new home. Mewe.com was one of these platforms.
Alas, nowadays they’re not as welcoming as they were in December 2018. But they haven’t stopped altogether…

Apple’s War Against Sex

The reason why Tumblr enforced such a rigorous stop to their NSFW content was Apple. People had reported finding inappropriate underage sexual content via the Tumblr app, which is available in the App Store. As you probably know, Apple is as much against anything sexual, just like Facebook. Tumblr didn’t have any other choice but to make sure this illegal content was scrapped from their website. Everyone understood this and agreed.
Unfortunately, their algorithms weren’t perfect and began to block random content, or so it seemed. So instead of fine-tuning the algorithms, they decided to censor anything to do with sexuality or nudity.

Mewe for Tumblr Refugees

Mewe.com was one of the websites welcoming the Tumblr refugees, as they were soon called, to their midst. Literally:

Sexual content flooded the social media site. Many men uploaded a dick-pic as their profile picture, thus exposing many to this questionable content.

Apple vs Mewe

Again, in comes Apple. Mewe has an app in the Appstore and has to oblige Apple’s rules. The mega-company saw this inappropriate content and warned Mewe they needed to address this, just as they had with Tumblr.

Good for Now

So is Mewe.com a good alternative to host or link to sexual content on the web? For now, yes. It would be wise to not host your entire business on this one platform. According to their terms of service, they could block or remove your content at any moment. But if you would like to expand your online presence and make some friends, then go ahead. Make a profile, click around and see what you can make of it. But like anything in the NSFW realm nowadays, you never know how long it’ll last…
