It's time: Adult filter opt-in
I've started up an adult (aka sex and/or "Not Safe For Work") filter for my journal. This will strictly be on an opt-in basis, and opting in via poll or comment is all you have to do (n.b.: I make no guarantee to people not on my friends list).

No questions asked, whether you vote yes or no. Comments are screened (and will be left that way unless you request otherwise).

Poll #1076641 Adult filter membership

My adult posts, let me show you them!

Can has posts?
64(88.9%)
Do not want!
6(8.3%)
Invisible vote! (i.e., my comment will explain)
2(2.8%)


STANDARD ADULT FILTER RULE AND DISCLAIMERS:
* What's said there stays there.* This goes for both my posts (unless I repost them elsewhere myself) and people's comments.
* Will contain NSFW content -- however, every post will be lj-cut to keep your friends page worksafe.
* I may still post (clearly labeled) links to NSFW content outside the filter, but I won't post any NSFW content out here.
* Will contain personal material and TMI. I'm really not a kinky guy, but it may still dramatically alter your view of me and mine; read at own risk.
* By signing up for the filter you certify to me that you are an adult and that reading about sex is not illegal. I'm not in this for the legal problems.

--
* Your intimate partner(s) specifically exempted. See comments.

> I'm a grown-up. So are you. You can make up your own mind about what you want to share with me (or with others).

Sentiment appreciated. I've decided I want to share (otherwise I wouldn't have posted this in the first place). But when it comes to something so thoroughly complicated by our society as sex, I want to give people warning and choice. My grown-up friends may have perfectly legitimate reasons for not wanting to read those posts that have nothing to do with what I want to say*.

If someone doesn't want to hear about my draconity or my tech support rants, they probably shouldn't be reading my journal. But with sex, I would rather connect with everyone on a level of mutual comfort than try to force boundaries.

... Anyway, it sounds like your response is a yes. If that's not the case, let me know.

> I need to add my own standard disclaimer [to "What's said there stays there"] here, which is that I never promise to keep things from my partners that I think they need to know.

Thanks for reminding me. I do explicitly support the "partner exemption". If you opt in, please feel free to share it with your intimate partner(s), with the understanding that they need to respect its privacy in the same way you do.

If something should ever come up in my filter that would be in conflict with the principle of openness with a partner ... geez. I can't imagine it, either. But that would definitely be handled on a case-by-case basis, with as much communication with involved parties as possible.

It's alright. These things tend to go in waves.

(Which reminds me. I've got a question to ask you -- I'm trying to track down something I wrote a while ago. I'll drop you an e-mail.)

Added -- sorry about the delay; the comment notification got lost in the mail when Tomorrowlands went down.
