Squirt.org, the completely uncensored hookup/cruising site for gay, bi, and curious men who want to skip the pretense of dating and get right to the boning, truly believe that sex is a good thing, and that our bodies – whatever the shape, size, colour, or age – are beautiful and should be celebrated. They believe that there’s nothing wrong with getting your clothes off, because there’s no shame attached to nakedness.
However, censorship of adult and sex-positive content is only increasing and it’s now impacting dating apps. Gay digital safe-space is being eroded and censorship seems to be the go-to option for governments and companies around the world. It feels like anything that’s a bit queer or a bit sexual is at the top of the hit-list. The rising tide of censorship and online regulation could soon put apps like Squirt out of business, making it no longer feasible for them to provide the types of services and content that their members value – services and content that also play an important role in the LGBTQ+ community; sex, intimacy, connection, freedom etc.
So, Squirt wants to take a stand and send a message. They’re not willing to stay silent in the face of increasing censorship, so they’ve launched the #CensorshipSucks campaign, using a hashtag that unifies and allows people to have their voices heard.
Some of your favourite adult stars are coming out in support of the campaign, with these tweets below:
“A society that is comfortable with every detail of violence being broadcast on every channel but not comfortable with the broadcasting of examples of the love, lust, compassion, caring, and sexual freedom the porn industry portrays, is a society that seriously needs to reconsider their viewing priorities”. – Jack Andy (@jackandyxxx)
“I think censorship limits creativity and self-expression. This concept of safety by hiding sexuality of nudity never really did anything to help human trafficking nor folks being raped or abused. Some of my friends think nudity is dangerous. We have to stop the bad connotation associated with the human body and what we do with it.” – River Wilson (@riverwilsonxxx)
“The whole point about the internet is the freedom to post or create media without censorship. A world with online censorship brings us back to the 1980s. Being a Model and Director in Gay Porn, I think it’s crazy since many men like to and do express themselves in a sexual and more natural manner. People shouldn’t be censored on what they want to express sexually. Even censoring nude photography is a big shame as that’s art, art of the male form. We are now in 2019, censoring things online is quite ridiculous and a step backwards as it’s nothing new and nothing to be ashamed of – people and companies have been doing this a long time.” – DICE (@DiceInPDXXX)
“When it comes to the increasing of online censorship, I feel as though that it is Prehistoric. We are living in a time and age where everything is more advanced. For me personally, I think it is a double-edged sword because there are many things in this world that aren’t censored. Take for instance, various paintings and statues. Those are considered national treasures; however, still showing full on nudity for all to see. The body is an art form, it shows the beauty and uniqueness in all of us. It is a sign of self-confidence. Others can say it’s too much or vulgar, but that just a closed-minded perception of how to think.” – Tigger Redd (@Tigger_ReddXXX)
