Is nudity allowed on Patreon?
Nudity and the human body has been part of art since the very beginning of our history. It is so intertwined that we would never even think to ask whether or not the “David” would be allowed on Patreon.
Nudity is allowed on Patreon as long as it is flagged accordingly:
If you are planning on posting nudity on your page, please mark your page as adult content. The same logic applies if your project changes with time. You can read more about how to mark yourself as an adult content creator here: Should my creator page be marked as adult content?. Content with mature themes should be marked as “Patron Only”. It means that you cannot post nudity in public areas including your profile picture, banner, reward images or about me section.
What does Patreon consider to be nudity or mature themes?
When looking at content and how it should be flagged, we don’t factor in artistic merit and try as much as possible to stay away from bias. You should make sure that both nudity and implied nudity such as the gimmicky censorship of breasts and genitals, sheer/see-through clothing, and overly sexual poses are always marked as adult. Please note that this list is not exhaustive as we also review for context.
Other things to note:
While we allow nudity and for creators to push the boundaries of art, we also have guidelines against funding pornography on patreon. In our community guidelines, We define pornographic material as real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation or sexual intercourse on camera.
If you ever have doubts about whether one of your posts is starting to cross the line towards content we would consider pornographic, please contact us.
