New filtered category -- what is it?

there's a notice up in the ad review centre that says they are replacing the sexual filter for a broader one -- 'References to Sex & Sexuality'

the thing is, though, i've already been blocking the 'dating', 'drugs and supplements' and the old 'sexual' one for months, but now this new category has appeared (unblocked) it says that it contributes 10% to my current earnings.

so if i want to carry on blocking the sexual ads, i've got to include this new filter too, which will knock off a chunk of my earnings.

anyone know what this new category blocks which the old one didn't? because i can't figure it out. the link that google supplies to explain doesn't work.

I wish I did know.

The "learn more" link takes me to a page that says they can't find the info.

I'm still unable to find these settings, has this been rolled out to all Adsense publishers, or is it still in beta for a smaller group?

I don't know how useful these categories really are. Despite blocking dating and suggestive ads I found an "escort" agency ad on my site a few days ago. As an added insult landing url promptly redirected to a different address. I raised a formal complaint with G as well as explicitly blocking both URLs but have had no response.

Ken_b, thank you, but I cannot find it, because I just don't have it in the interface. This is what I see in Adsense Setup:

Get Ads | Manage Ads | Color Palettes | Channels | Competitive Ad Filter | Site Authentication | Ad Review Center | Allowed Sites

And I can't find it under "Ad Review Center" either. So, has this been rolled out to all Adsense publishers?

Could it be part of the new adsense interface?

i've got it on the old interface, under the Ad Review Centre. top paragraph says 'category filters', and there's a link which changes the filtered categories.
