I am creating an dating review site and I have done full reviews of the "adult" oriented dating sites but I am worried about linking to them for fear of hurting my PR.

For example, one major adult dating site, has a PR of 0 but I have reviewed them and in order to provide my visitors good content, I feel I should link to them.

Would you guys do it, or just review it and provide the url and let the user enter it themselves?

You could always link via JavaScript. Google will be blind to this. I see nothing wrong with linking to a PR0 site in the sense you want to.

So you recommend boxing the links to adult sites inside javascript? That sounds like a good idea.

Another question, my reviews use the several keywords that can be considered adult like "adult", "erotic" "adult dating"

I tried not to say the word sex for fear of Google hurting my site for using that word.

Do you think its ok that I used those keywords, or will Google penalize me for having text with those words?
