eBay to stop sales of most adult items
If you’re looking to buy something naughty from eBay, it’s time to stock up.
The publicly-traded online auction site has announced new policies banning the sale of most ‘adult’ items, including X-rated movies, video games, comics, and magazines, except for a few titles like Playboy and Penthouse.
“We have revised our Adults Items policy,” the company stated in an email. “Starting June 15, 2021, items showing sexual activity, sexual content or sexually suggestive poses will no longer be allowed on eBay.com. Everything Else > Adult Only will no longer be available as a category. No new listings will be allowed in the Adult Only category and good-til-cancelled listings will be ended upon their renewal date.”
Other items like sex toys will be sold under the ‘Sexual Wellness’ categories, but must be pre-approved for sale by the site.
The new policy goes into effect July 15th. eBay’s annual revenues total more than $10 billion.
