Sexual Content

  1. The rise of services that create artificial sexually explicit content or modified photos is a concerning trend in digital media. These platforms use advanced algorithms to create fake pictures, potentially causing harm to the people depicted and contributing to the spread of confusion. 
  2. Guidelines for developing content, particularly those involving difficult themes such as synthetic sexual content, are critical to ensuring acceptable digital representation. Content creation must follow ethical guidelines, creating enjoyable experiences while protecting consumers’ well-being. Clear rules assist authors in handling boundaries, and promoting respect, variety, and inclusivity while avoiding negative presumptions or pictures that are violent. 

Why It’s Necessary to Follow

Compliance with guidelines for synthetic sexual content is critical to maintaining a safe and trustworthy advertising ecology. By following these criteria, advertisers maintain ethical standards and protect users from potentially dangerous or improper content. Google’s warning system stresses the importance of these principles and allows advertisers to improve their actions. However, frequent infractions need more stringent penalties, such as account suspension, to enforce compliance and protect the advertising platform’s integrity. 

What will happen if we continue to process?

  1. Advocating for the promotion of services that create, distribute, or store artificial sexually explicit content, particularly those responsible for ‘deepfakes’ and manipulated pictures, raises serious ethical and moral considerations. Such content can reinforce negative stereotypes, violate people’s privacy rights, and contribute to the spread of disinformation and exploitation.
  2. Create adverts for content that instructs users on how to create synthetic sexually explicit or nudity-containing content.
