18 U.S.C. § 2257 Statement

Last Updated: January 22, 2024

Any persons that appear in any visual depiction of actual sexually explicit conduct appearing or otherwise contained on the website located at https://www.playboy.com ("Website") were at least 18-years old at the time those visual depictions were produced. The owner and operator of this Website is not the primary producer (as that term is defined in 18 U.S.C. § 2257) of any of the visual depictions contained on the Website.

Exemption: Content Produced by Third Parties

The Website's operator is not the "producer" of any depictions of actual or simulated sexually explicit conduct depicted in content produced by third parties ("User Submitted Content") that may appear on the Website. The Website's operator limits its handling of this User Submitted Content and only performs the activities of transmission, storage, retrieval, hosting, or formatting of User Submitted Content that may depict sexually explicit conduct, all which User Submitted Content appears on the Website as the result of actions taken by third-party users of the Website. All parts of the Website that have User Submitted Content are under the control of the relevant user, for whom the Website is provided as an online service by the operator. Under 18 U.S.C. § 2257(h)(2)(B)(v) and 47 U.S.C. § 230(c), the Website's operator may delete User Submitted Content appearing on the Website as the result of actions taken by the Website's users, which User Submitted Content is considered, in the operator's sole discretion, to be indecent, obscene, defamatory, or inconsistent with the Website's policies and terms of service.

Exemption: Certain Content Produced by Website Operator

Certain images or videos appearing on the Website, for which the Website's operator may be considered the "producer," may be exempt from the requirements of 18 U.S.C. § 2257 and 28 C.F.R. Part 75 for one or more of the following reasons: (1) the produced images or videos do not portray any sexually explicit conduct defined in 18 U.S.C. § 2256(2)(A); (2) the produced images or videos do not portray depictions of the genitals or pubic area created after July 27, 2006; (3) the produced images or videos do not portray simulated sexually explicit activity occurring after the effective date of 18 U.S.C. § 2257A; or (4) the produced images or videos were created before July 3, 1995.
