Patreon Lens Is Not Adult-Friendly: Message From Patreon



Update: Patreon Lens Is Not “Porn-Friendly”

We originally reported on the new Patreon lens as being “adult-friendly”, due to the original announcement from Patreon. We’ve got the original post below. Although Patreon initially branded Patreon Lens as “Adult-Friendly”, apparently it really isn’t. Patreon sent out an email explaining their stance on porn and explicit content. Here’s what Patreon had to say.

Patreon Lens Not Pornstar Friendly


Patreon’s Response On Adult-Content:

Apologies for the delay!

My name is April and I’m on the Trust and Safety team here at Patreon. I’m happy to answer this for you.

Pornographic content cannot be funded by or linked to or from your Patreon page in any way. We define pornographic content as real people engaging in sexual acts, such as intercourse or masturbation on camera. This extends to any vagina play, visible erect penises, any penetration, or play with sex toys.

You can post sexual themed images, however your creator page will need to be marked as Adult Content, and all adult content will always need to be patron only.

Here’s the original post on the Patreon Lens, if you want to see what we originally reported on.



Patreon Announces Adult-Friendly “Patreon Lens”

Patreon just launched an awesome new feature in the wake of a horrible catastrophic Snapchat update that everyone hates. The new feature is the equivalent of Snapchat Stories, it is called “Patreon Lens” and you are able to sign in to the Patreon app and post stories just as you would your Snapchat.

What’s the catch? Surprisingly enough, there actually is no catch. Patreon specifically says:

“Patreon is a place where all types of artists can express themselves freely. At the same time, we need to ensure that the browsing experience is sensitive to different age groups, cultures and contexts. That’s why we use the term “Adult Content” to denote material that ventures into R-rated territory. If your page will contain adult content, you must mark the “Adult Content” checkbox in the creator page settings.”


Simply Indicate “Adult Content” And Camgirls Should Be Fine

If you mark yourself as adult, you then have the go-ahead to use their new update. Which is surprisingly convenient considering the update that just ruined Snapchat for more sex workers, and better yet, it’s adult friendly as opposed to Snapchat. This makes offering subscriptions to your story much easier since Patreon handles the subscription end of things, you can offer viewer access for as little as $1 a month.


Not A Good Public Snapchat Alternative

In order to view the stories, the member must be a paid subscriber and have the Patreon app. This means that Patreon Lens would not be a good substitute for a public Snapchat for marketing due to the fact it costs money. Patreon Lens allows you to share photo and video that you record through the app, and you can also share from your camera roll. This could be the technology that completely kills Snapchat, since it is adult friendly. Thank you Patreon!
