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 a Patreon page contains adult content, the creator must mark the “Adult Content” checkbox in the creator page settings.
Additionally, creator posts that show sexual or violent content in realistic detail must be marked as patron-only. Patron-only posts are hidden from public view so only consenting patrons will have access.
The glorification of rape and sexual violence is not ok and Patreon reserves the right to review and remove accounts that may violate this guideline. This includes:
- -images (illustrated, animated, and otherwise) that glorify rape or sexual violence, accompanied by titles/captions/descriptions
- -depictions of rape or sexual violence within the context of a personal/historical narrative or satire are subject to review
Additionally, Patreon does not tolerate content that sexualizes children in any way.
*Patreon is not for pornography, but some of the world’s most beautiful and historically significant art often depicts nudity and sexual expression. Because of that, we allow nudity and suggestive imagery, as long as it is marked as Adult Content. If your work contains nudity or any material that could potentially be offensive to users, make absolutely sure to mark the page as Adult Content in the creator description when creating your page. Think of the policy as allowing “R Rated” movies... but not porn. In keeping with our strong commitment to safety, we have zero tolerance for content that sexualizes children in any way.
