Selling adult content

  1. Hi there,

    I've had a look around the forums and support sections and I can't find an answer to my question. I am trying to set up an online store where I can sell my products, which are pornographic in nature. I have checked, and WooCommerce (the ecommerce solution I want to use) and Paxum (the payment gateway i'll be using) are fine with me selling adult content. However, I have found this set of WordPress rules from other posts on this forum:

    We do permit mature content on WordPress.com, including text, images and videos that contain nudity, offensive language, and mature subject material. However, blogs that contain such content can and will be marked as Mature in our system.

    [You cannot]
    -Post explicit sexual materials that can be considered pornographic, such as explicit images or video of sexual acts or close-up images of genitalia;
    -Post links or banner ads to adult-oriented affiliate networks, such as -pornography site signups;
    -Post links, text, or images promoting or advertising escort services;
    -Post images of extreme violence or gore without associated context or commentary;
    -Post images of child pornography;
    -Post content that promotes pedophilia, such as blogs with galleries of images of children where the images, content surrounding the images, or the intent of the blog is sexually suggestive.

    My actual WordPress site will not have ANY of the above posted on it, i'll just be selling my content from it. But it will contain 'mature subject material' in text form, because i'll be advertising my content and describing what each product is before the customer buys it (and i'm perfectly fine with my site being marked as 'mature' because of this). When someone buys the content, it will be emailed directly to them as a download link from another site (who allow adult content).

    So my question is, essentially, will this be allowed?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org software install. http://wordpress.org
