Are you guys really allowed to say some of these words that you use, like Face F***ing? I know this is a sexual education wiki, but I thought that it would be more of a sex education-style teaching. We can say things like "penis" and "fellatio" and "erection", but not actual swear words like those sometimes used. Are we really allowed to use that language on a sex education wiki? I can understand if "A common slang word for this practice is (insert word here)." But they out-right said Face F***ing in this article. Star651 18:48, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

The site is not allowed to violate UK laws. Otherwise, see for discussion of similar issues with respect to Wikipedia. This site is distinctly not "educational" in the sense of being intended for children... AnonMoos 06:39, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
I'd say that there's far less really offensive stuff here than on Wikipedia or Commons. Last year, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger requested the FBI to investigate Wikipedia for knowingly distributing child pornography. In 2008, a page of Wikipedia was blocked in the United Kingdom because the Internet Watch Foundation labelled it child pornography. I don't know why the block was lifted, as the offending photo is still there. There has never been a trace of child pornography on Wipipedia. And as for Commons, can you imagine Wipipedia hosting pictures of "sexual penetrative use" of bananas or cucumbers?--Speedoslover 13:34, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
That was all rather greatly overblown (the first had much more to do with some kind of long-term Jimbo Wales vs. Larry Sanger feud than with any real criminal activity, while in the second case the IWF quickly found out that it had bitten off much more than it could chew in attempting to limit the access of millions of UK internet users to Wikipedia over something which had been offered for sale in High Street record shops continuously since 1976...).
