Would naughty humour be allowed?

I'm thinking of opening a new section on my website with some mild adult content (not pornographic or anything, just a bit of naughty humor)

The plan is that it's going to be on a subdomain of the main site and with a disclaimer.
The main site is running adsense, I will of course not try to run adsense on the new subdomain, but the question is: Do you think that google will ban my site because another section of it is against their tos if I'm not running adsense on that section?

Thank you in advance :D

(BTW I hope I'm not breaking this sites rules by asking this, if so please inform me asap)

Im pretty sure this is against TOS

No one can answer this but google themselves, why don't you drop them a link and get their ok before placing ads there, make sure to explain well that it is only an 'experimental' section of your web site and that you are willing to remove it if it violates the TOS.

Thank for the welcome...

Maybe I didn't clarify enough. I'm not going to run adsense in the section with the "adult" content.

But I am running adsense on other sections of the page.

still, my advice is valid with no ads there too, ask them.

Maybe instead of loading up a subdomain with kill words (the words that would trigger PSAs) it might be easier for you to create an entirely new website for the adult humor.

It may even help lure new visitors to your original domain that way too.

I agree that a different domain would be wiser, and not all that costly. Google won't make a judgement on borderline content without an example so make up a sample page and ask them.

But I am running adsense on other sections of the page.

At the very least use separate pages.

I wonder how they define adult content?
Is a glamour model in her underwear adult?
If so does that make a lingerie sales page adult?

Is a topless woman classed as adult?

I would email them, get, and keep, an email saying that it is OK.

Presumably, borderline cases could have different verdicts depending on the view of the person looking at it

mmm we all remember the site by Markus, well, after his post I went to his site and checked it out, I bet most did, I saw one username of "Spunkman" and a guy from aus that says he smokes weed in his profile (priceless) although he probably cant remember typing it now.

I understand Spunk to an american, as zest or fun, correct me if I am wrong there, BUT, this side of the pond its something else ;)) oh and so is fanny, its not an a$$ lol

Andrea99, how did you make "But I am running adsense on other sections of the page" stand out?

billdex just copy the text you want to quote then type [quote] paste the text then close the quote [/qu0te] I put a zero instead of a o so it wouldnt go to tags properly

I have a lingerie directory page, as well as swimwear and bikinis and Google doesn't seem to have a problem with those sites in general as apparel pages, but a lot of actual porn sites sell lingerie on the side and I don't list those. It's not really very hard (for me at least) to distinguish between apparel pages and skin pages.

man, you make my site sound boaring with all the fun you are having, how did I forget to make site about my favorite hobby: Scantly clad females. And you get money for that too? Not fair!

Hey, I have one single page - not site - with my GF on it. It pays 50 plus dollars a day! ONE PAGE! All traffic is coming from an image search...

Hi Nitrous,

Curiously, an entirely innocent picture of my g/f's feet seems to make for one of my better paying and more popular pages. Not in your earnings bracket, but still noticable...

Something must be in the eye of the beholder...

Seems that sex (however weird) sells! I am considering hiring some fit models...

Mines bringing 1.8k to 2k visitors per day to that page. 95percent of them are searching in images for a very popular keyword that finds my birds picture at no 1. Pure fluke. Been working for two months now!

I've sent them an e-mail - I'll keep you informed of their answer (if I ever get one)
