Announcement regarding real porn

Dear friends,

Sadly we are forced to remove and ban real porn on our booru.org platform starting from 31 march. The reasons are as followed:

Financing: The platform does not generate enough revenue from ads to stay afloat, we’re making around a 25% loss that has to be paid out of pocket. With real porn getting crowdfunding (patreon, subscribestar etc) is not possible. Getting rid of of real porn opens up more possibilities. We were forced to stop our crowdfunding earlier because of this.

Legality: Real porn comes with risks such as underage content, revenge porn etc. Keeping this in check requires constant moderation, many times we find that the sites with real porn are abandoned or poorly moderated. There are constant law changes and we can’t keep up with this.

If you are a administrator of one of the larger real porn sites on our network (25k+ posts/active community) we can provide you with a backup of the database, excluding user data so you can self host the content. Email us at staff@booru.org if you’re interested. Do this before 31 march.

I’m putting some of community asked questions here so you don’t have to find them in the comments:


Will hentai be banned next?:
No.

How will it be determined that a booru has real porn on it?:
We will not use bots or algorithm’s, humans will scan the sites.

Will a single image of a real person in a gallery with 20,000 other drawn images warrant the entire booru’s removal?:
No, all moderators and admins of the booru’s should make sure real images are removed. If they keep up the moderation a couple images that went trough the needle will not warrant the deletion of a entire booru.

Is there or will there be a list of the sites on the chopping block before the 31st? If so, when will it be out?:
Chopping list is a good idea, we’ll try to work on it and hopefully release it to the public before 31 march but no promises.

Is there a way for a non-administrator like myself to acquire an entire booru’s image gallery easily in the case of an inactive site? (No idea how to use Imgbrd on Github.)?:
We would have to say no as if users were able to ask for backups it would cause to much workload on me for exporting the things. I would recommend downloading said images from the site trough gallery download programs before 31 march instead. We do have the bandwidth available for people to archive said content. We would kindly ask to keep downloaders single threaded as to not overload the server.

    • I firmly believe the patreon would get 5 times the supporters if this site shilled it more actively.
      But those awful, AWFUL porn ads going away would be worth supporting it. I don’t want to see some disgusting video of a morbidly obese black woman getting fucked by a skinny bitchboy simp when looking at hentai.

  1. Drawn porn is okay yes, regarding porn ads we had a period where they were gone but this was when we could still advertise our patreon. We were forced to remove patreon because of the real porn. After the real stuff is gone we can start exploring other ways of funding the platform.

  2. just out of curiousity… how big would a backup of the database be??? i hate to phathom the terabites it would take but i must ask

  3. Well I am a not that big fan of drawn porn but I do masturbate to it sometimes, shiit, I’m going to miss it. Wish you luck.

  4. i used the booru grabber tool available on github to pick up everything of real porn that was in a booru.
    the stuff that wasn’t bot spam, of course.
    i hope there’s some alternative to this, like another free and simple porn gallery network where you can upload as much as you want and fap whenever you feel like it.
    hydrus network may occupy that spot but it seems to be a local thing, so i suppose i should back up stuff on my own in some other digital archive.
    most of the stuff is also because of the day tumblr shit the bed and started banning porn.
    i still hope there’s still more positives to come out of this whole event.

      • i think that site is screwed too because of coppa law (which is another censorship law, with possible excuses such as “think of the children” or “it will stop sex trafficking”, even thought it will not stop actual problems and instead create new ones).
        in fact, i also recall article 17, “terror filter”, the org domain sale etc…
        we’re also in the time of the coronavirus and one way to resist it a bit more is literally to fap.
        i like both real and fictional porn, so i pray for a better future and not a crappy sci-fi/cyberpunk scenario turned into real life.
        because the problem with bans and censorship is the question of “what’s next?”.

    • Actually, only porn involving Real Humans is getting banned.

      That means porn that uses Photos and videos of real people, not porn based in actual art or 3d works.

  5. I’m the one who makes those ads I’m gonna not change anything for my porn ads on your puny little foot fetish site suck it you disgusting ass pigs if you want feet look around bitch
    I will continue to post porn ads and I’ll over run your site and turn ok into rule 34 2nd

  6. Next up Hentai will be banned. You can say all you like it’s not coming but we can all see the writing on the wall. First they ban hentai on patreon now theyre banning real porn on the booru, and its always, fucking ALWAYS because there afraid of underage stuff. Next thing you know we wont even be able to make Overwatch porn because somebody could take Widowmakers head and put it on a tiny body.

    It’s been real ladies and germs.

    • This ‘hentai is going to be next’ is a silly argument to make. If you know anything about booru’s is that these are imageboards build from the ground up for hentai and anime content. Stop fearmongering as we have no plans to drop hentai as its basically the entire platform.

      • You say that, and im sure you beleive it. And I wish i could believe you.

        But i dont think you have connected all the dots.

        (I was there when Tumblr nuked itself. As a small time content creator, And why did they do it? They wanted outside funding via apple store store)

        It started with Tumblr. Then next it was crackdowns on lewd artists on Patreon.

        Next they tighten up restrictions on youtube with COPPA,

        Then they outright banned not just hentai but any art that is “Japanese Looking” on Patreon. After that Paypal has banned Projekt Melody. Now this, and I wager pixiv and furry sites with questionable content will get the hammer dropped next.

        All of these things are happening in sequence because there all part of a big plan.

        Long story short, I wont say his name because i dont want this to get political but when the current president of the US was president elect he promised a crackdown on porn, and i believe all of this is part of that.

        Please I am begging you, dont bury your head in the sand like people on Tumblr did. I told a lot of those artists they were going to be waing tables at Dennys if they didnt do something and it happened, and now most of them are broke or irelevant and barely post anymore.

        Please research it and see for yourself that what im saying is true. And if you can do something to protect our rights to enjoy content we love then do so.

        An internet dark age is coming if we dont wake the hell up right now.

  7. Well, this is real sad.
    Appart the fact that I spent literally YEARS working to try to do a great job here with quality pics and tagging extensively those so users could find what they wanted easily, I believe this is censorship at it’s worst. Yeah, money and laws are the mean to get it done but, nonetheless, this is more and more pressure of the “well-thinking” ppl lobbying out there.
    Soon, as laymanIQ just said, hentai will be banned too.
    So, I will go back to my very own personal PC collection, not sharing no more with anyone stuff that I’ve found elsewhere OVER THE NET! So much for the copyrights…
    Good luck, good bye, so long and thanks for the fish.

    • Enough Fear-mongering.

      If they ban Hentai, people will RIOT.

      That’s the thing.

      They take away the good pornz, they better be ready for a Reckoning, weither it be Fire, or mass Smear campaigns that leave those who banned Hentai, penniless

      They’re messing with a Bull that isn’t going to like being Smacked around.

      • People will riot? If you wont riot now what makes you think youll riot then? considering real porn probably consists for at least 20-30% of all content on the site?

  8. Hmm quite a pity it’s sad to see censorship ruin the fun for everyone but might I suggest subscribe star as a patreon alternative because in all honesty I knew this was coming for a long time especially with patreon being with politically correct crowd

  9. Welp, that’s the end of Str8cartoonmusclemen.booru.org I made that to end the whole muscular guys are gay stereotype plus my fetish is muscular guys with girls. They can say real porn is what’s leaving but I know hentai will follow soon enough.

  10. Before you take this jump and try to crowdfund on Patreon, take another look at recent developments in the content they consider acceptable. They have recently come out against “anime styled art” and creators of it, claiming that all characters with anime styled faces look young, regardless of the body attached to the face, and they consider it all lolicon.

  11. Well, fuck those SJW Senators and Media Heads. There is a special place in hell for those virtue signalling fuckwads.

    Especially if they anger enough people. A well deserved lynching is coming for them, and there will be a RECKONING.

    Better question is, is anyone going to do something about it? Is anyone going to stand up against them?

    • >SJW
      >virtue signalling

      You should just lynch yourself just to save others the trouble once the right wing opportunists and others of your disgusting ilk are finally purged.

  12. I think this is just going to lead to just a ton of cropped animations to youtube, classily done like in a movie where you don’t show any nipples or male parts, but just enough to where you get an idea of whats going on. Theres already some stuff out there with Elizabeth and Widowmaker,

    I watch erotic movies on youtube all the time and youtube doesn’t care, maybe well just have to move to making softcore in SFM/Blender? I for one would enjoy a bit of change of scenery.

  13. I have many questions.
    There’s no way I’ll be able to cover all that ground with pleb tools, so:
    How will it be determined that a booru has real porn on it? Algorithm, tags, etc?
    Will a single image of a real person in a gallery with 20,000 other drawn images warrant the entire booru’s removal?
    Is there or will there be a list of the sites on the chopping block before the 31st? If so, when will it be out?
    Is there a way for a non-administrator like myself to acquire an entire booru’s image gallery easily in the case of an inactive site? (No idea how to use Imgbrd on Github.)
    If this is the wrong place to ask, where or who would know?

    • Excellent questions my good sir.

      How will it be determined that a booru has real porn on it:
      We will not use bots or algorithm’s, humans will scan the sites.

      Will a single image of a real person in a gallery with 20,000 other drawn images warrant the entire booru’s removal?:

  14. No-one says this will be easy, we watched W.W.O.E.C. die for $500. Xbooru must survive with it’s own funding. Regardless of youth and fans.
    We must stand alone, because it’s worth fighting for.

  15. nightmare combat; I too am banned here, but in reality it’s no big deal. I onced posted edits of other artists work. Some were shit, and some were worse. As they were mostly T.P. they all disapeared anyway. But I visit here every night, there’s no problem! I have saved hundreds of pics of Lisa Simpson, she’s history, see the writing on the wall, change is happening. Get over it.

  16. Shame. I understand only NSFW will be affected, but will non-nude gravure pics be affected as well? (I.e.- bikinis, lingerie, skimpy outfits) Would really hate to look for a great source of them from 3Dbooru (as much as I don’t like using that term) and other sites.

  17. anyway, i deleted all real life porn available in a booru i used and the only real life porn left is that from bot spam, so i couldn’t do shit but remind that they exist.
    real porn also shows up in other booru’s and i remember at some point seeing it in a 4chan drawthread booru, the vidyart one.

    during the moderation and examination/inspection of booru’s, will anything else be deleted?
    because i assume getting rid of real life porn and ads could facilitate some things as a positive outcome.

  18. In the middle that I am, I am not interested in the real one, I have a fetish to create a character and share fictional drawings,
    For my part, the illegal is destroyed.
    But if everything is removed from the website, I will save whaI will upload has, xao.

  19. i sent a personal message to the staff because i want to back up all my stuff, even favorites because i’d rather end up with some repeated stuff than missing any.
    i’ll organize things when i get them.
    i know some other things besides real porn will be gone, so i hope i get access to all of my stuff.
    i sent a long message that should have the details.
