Playboy Club Community Guidelines

Last Updated: December 13, 2023

While a community can be defined as a “feeling of sharing common attitudes, goals and beliefs,” a true community is made up of different people and points of view. For our community we have outlined the following Community Guidelines to maintain a diverse and safe environment that fosters and encourages creativity. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in these guidelines shall have the meanings given to such terms in our Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy.

Who We Are

For more than 66 years, Playboy has collaborated with the world’s most interesting thinkers, important newsmakers and iconic personalities. We’ve provided a platform for new ideas, free expression, diverse perspectives and controversial conversations. We’ve been on the front lines of the sexual revolution. We’ve fought for civil rights, freedom of speech, reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights and cannabis reform. We’ve curated sophistication, art, music and culture.

We are bold and outspoken in our points of view. We break barriers and question the status quo. We do not shy away from debate or taboo. We’re for the open-minded, the sex-positive and for all those who value equality, free expression and the finer things in life.

We believe now is the perfect time to take these conversations further.

Welcome to the Playboy Club. We created this platform to connect a community where people can discover and interact with others that share in their art, their lives and their creative expressions.

There’s a long way to go before the rest of the world sees things the way we do. But the first step is for us to live it, each and every day. It’s on us to champion the right to pleasure for all – and to show the world what that really means.

Consider this platform our playground to do it.

How We Play

Playboy is a diverse community and while opinions may differ, our Community Guidelines must be followed for everyone to feel safe and free to explore and express themselves. We support free speech that does no harm.

With that in mind, if you see a page on Playboy that you feel violates our Community Guidelines, please report them here. A member of our Playboy compliance team will review the report and if our Community Guidelines have been violated, we will contact the creator to let them know that they are not in compliance with our community standards. Please also see our Content Guidelines below and our Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy for more information outlining acceptable and unacceptable Content.

We understand for many Creators this is your livelihood, and you have our commitment to an open dialogue about both the Community Guidelines and Content Guidelines to ensure we are as transparent as possible.

Who Can Play

With the goal of creating a community that is inclusive, inquisitive, and diverse, we are open to all Creators and Members over the age of 18 who meet and maintain our Terms of Use, Acceptable Use Policy, and Community and Content Guidelines.

Though nudity and solo NSFW Content is allowed on our platform behind subscription or messaging areas (subject to compliance with our Terms of Use, Acceptable Use Policy and Content Guidelines), we ask that all Creators keep the public spaces on Playboy pages (meaning profile pictures, membership tier descriptions, page banners, etc.) non-nude / SFW.

Who Can’t Play

As a platform that empowers Creators financially, we are required to restrict both the types of media and projects that can be funded on Playboy.

At no time can a Creator make any threats, commit any crime, disclose private or personal information of others, or encourage others to do any of these activities.

Furthermore, Creators with a direct affiliation to violent or dangerous groups (such as terrorist or cyber terrorist organizations, organized criminal groups, and violent hate groups), may be restricted from receiving funds through Playboy.

Additionally, political candidates cannot use Playboy to solicit votes and/or aid in running for public office, or to fund the political campaigns of others.

Failing to comply with these Community Guidelines may result in removal from the platform.

Safe and Respectful Play

Our Community Guidelines exist to ensure Playboy is a safe and inviting environment for its Creators and Members.

We encourage all members of the community, both Creators and Members to be open to new points of view, and to respect each other’s right to express themselves so long as doing so does not silence someone else.

We encourage all members of the community, both Creators and Members to be empathetic and kind. All individuals have their own tastes and proclivities. We are of the “do you (but do no harm)” mentality. It’s every member’s duty to create and protect an environment where members feel accepted - not targeted, marginalized or judged.

We have a zero tolerance policy for spam or solicitation of any kind, including but not limited to creating pledging schemes, or the use of Playboy to release or link to spam, computer viruses, malware or phishing schemes.

We have a zero tolerance policy on use of others’ private personal information or collecting someone’s personal and public information for intimidation, also known as Doxing.

We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment, and behavior that violates the law, the Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy, and our Community and Content Guidelines.

Creators cannot take conversations off platform, whether by telephone, another platform, or physically.

We have a zero tolerance policy for sharing conversations outside of the context of this Community without permission of the members involved.

Be Yourself

Playboy is for Creators who are authentic. At no time can Creators post Content that infringes on others intellectual property. To learn more, visit our Terms of Use.

Creators cannot create fake pages or collect money for things they are not actually doing. For example, Creators cannot create a fan page for someone else.

Creators cannot pretend to be or impersonate someone else by using their name, brand or Content.

Creators cannot create misleading posts or comments on other Creators’ pages to promote their own page.

Creators cannot send a large number of unsolicited private messages asking for support or use incorrect tagging in order to drive more search results.

Do No Harm

While we encourage everyone on the Playboy platform to creatively express themselves, we have a zero tolerance policy for bullying, harassment, threats or hate speech of any kind. This extends to all Creators and Members of the Community, including celebrities and public figures.

If you view any Content as bullying, harassment, threatening or hate speech please report it to the Playboy compliance team.

Playboy Club Content Guidelines

Content can come to life in so many incredible ways, and we don’t believe in censoring creativity. However, to keep our community safe for the largest number of Creators and Members possible there are limits to what we can allow. Below are Content Guidelines to give our Creators the most amount of whitespace possible. Additional detail can be found in the Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy.


With an 18+ age verified Creator and Member community, nudity is permitted on the Playboy platform by individual Creators posting alone.

As a reminder, there is a zero tolerance policy for posting or sharing nude Content of any individual under the age of 18, including yourself. As a strong commitment to child safety, we will work with law enforcement and any other appropriate organization whenever we come across child sexual abuse material (“CSAM”).

Pornography and Sexual Services

We don’t allow pornographic material or sexual services on Playboy, which we define as more than one person engaging in sexual acts such as sexual intercourse on camera. To learn more, visit our Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy.

Offensive and Graphic Creations

We have a zero tolerance policy for the glorification of sexual violence, which includes bestiality, rape, and child exploitation (including but not limited to CSAM). This is true for illustrated, animated, or any other type of Content. Playboy reserves the right to review and remove accounts that may violate these Content Guidelines.

We also do not allow other sexual fetish creations that appear as non-consensual sex, such as incest or necrophilia.

Content with more than one individual

Content with multiple people MUST be entirely safe-for-work. Safe-for-work Content cannot be graphic or sexually explicit in any form.

All persons must be 18-years+ at the time the Content was produced. You will be required to verify the identity and age of all persons depicted in uploaded Content. Creator must hold all identification cards and documents required under Record-Keeping-Requirements, 18 U.S.C § 2257 and 28 C.F.R. Part 75, or applicable laws in any other jurisdictions, countries, and territories, for all individuals appearing in the Content; and must be able to provide supporting documents on request.


We have a zero tolerance policy on Content that promotes or glorifies self-harm, self-injury, suicide, or an eating disorder.

If you are concerned that you or someone close to you might be in danger of hurting themselves, please contact local authorities or seek help using the following link:

Illegal Activity

We have a zero tolerance policy for Creators collecting money for an illegal purpose, or aiding and abetting and/or encouraging others to break the law. Creators may not promote illegal weapons, drug manufacturing or distribution, property crime, human or animal abuse of any kind, or illegal betting or gambling products or services.

Dangerous Activities

We ask Creators who are posting dangerous stunts to include a “Warning” disclaimer.

Child Safety

We have a zero tolerance for behaviors that exploit minors in any way. All participants on the platform must be 18+ years of age with no exceptions. We will report all users engaging in any exploitative activity to the proper authorities and will remove violators from the platform.

Drugs, Medication, and Supplements

Creators may share their experience with struggles faced and how they got better as a way of helping others – we understand that. However, creators are prohibited from encouraging harmful or dangerous behaviors including illegal drug use, irresponsible alcohol consumption, prescription drug abuse, as well as offering any form of medical or alternative medical advice that may put someone at risk.

Weapons and Explosives

We have a zero tolerance policy for Creators who upload Content intended to sell, purchase, or obtain firearms or explosives. We prohibit the use of weapons to threaten, harass, cause self-harm, or remote violence or any other illegal activity.

This includes:

We prohibit live streams that show the Creators holding, handling, firing, and transporting a firearm and/or explosive.

Alcohol and Smoking

While creators are welcome to create Content that highlights alcohol and tobacco products such as their favorite cocktails or favorite cigars, Creators are prohibited from offering promotions, coupons, or any other incentives to purchase or obtain alcohol and smoking products.

Finance and Cryptocurrency

The platform cannot be used by Creators or Members to help launch or promote an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) or create an investment scheme. Creators cannot offer coins or cryptocurrency as part of a benefit or making any of your Members an investor. Creators may not organize benefits designed to commit fraud such as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme.

Sex Work and Sexual Services

While we welcome nudity and sexually explicit Content that complies with our Terms of Use, Acceptable Use Policy, and Community and Content Guidelines, we do not allow Creators to provide access to pornographic material such as giving access to a separate website or shared private access to pornographic Content on any other platform, and the platform’s payment system cannot be used to fund escort activity.

Multi-Level Marketing, Direct Selling and Raffles

This is not a platform to facilitate direct consumer product sales or a Multi-Level Marketing outreach of any kind.

Additionally, Creators cannot request payment for raffles or giveaways in any way, as these are subject to state gambling and lottery regulations.

Copyright & Trademark in Merchandise

All Content is subject to review and the company reserves the right to refuse the processing of any Content at any time, for any reason.

It is the Creator’s responsibility to follow both the Community Guidelines and Content Guidelines, and by submitting Content to the platform, you state that it complies with both these guidelines and the platform’s Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy.
