ebay has updated its Adult Items Policy to restrict a variety of sexually oriented items from being listed and sold on its auction store. Beginning on June 15, sellers will no longer be able to auction “adult films and video games with a rating of X, XXX, R18, or unrated for an adults-only audience,” “sexually explicit anime, comics, books, films, animation, manga, hentai, yaoi,” and “adult magazines, nudist publications, or adult anime/manga that include sexually explicit content, nudity, or sexual stories.” eBay is also removing its “adults only” category altogether.

Activity that doesn’t follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or canceling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.

    But why? Probably china.
    Because if I ban you from doing something, it means I can’t be doing it! Simple virtue signaling, nothing more.

  2. I never realized they sold that kind of stuff.

    It’s not really for me, but it seems like it is limiting perfectly legal markets. if they had parental concerns, just restrict listings based on the age of the account holder.

  3. Oh, I’m feeling repressed…….

    What if I needed ammo for an air cannon? It’s not like I’d trust Craiglist to support that effort.

    I guess I’ll have to stick with Amazon for my WWII dildo drone drop re-enactment movie making….

    Going to have to resort to clone a willy kits.
