eBay to Ban Sales of Adult Video Games and Other Sexually Oriented Items

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.
