Non-Consensual Adult Intimate Media Policy Explainer Page

Non-Consensual Adult Intimate Media

At Discord, we take a firm stance against the sharing, distribution, taking, or creation of sexually explicit or sexually suggestive content of other people without their knowledge or consent seriously.

The term non-consensual sharing or distribution of adult intimate media  means sharing intimate or sexually explicit content without the person's knowledge or consent, whether it's with a group or one person.

This includes media taken or created without an individual’s knowledge or consent (for example: hidden cameras, "creepshots", videos of sexual assault, AI-generated sexual images such as "deepfakes"), as well as media that was originally obtained or created with consent (such as, within the context of a private or intimate relationship, sometimes known as “revenge porn” or “image-based sexual abuse”). In order to protect victims and stop the proliferation of non-consensual adult intimate media (NCAIM), we will remove confirmed instances of this content.

We take the threat to share or distribute NCAIM seriously and will take appropriate action covered under our Threats Policy. This includes the threat to share non-consensual intimate media unless a demand is met, otherwise known as sextortion. This policy covers the content of adults only, for content involving minors, please see our Teen and Child Safety Policies.

For example, you may not post, share, or engage in: [sensitive language content warning]

How to Avoid Violating This Policy

  • Do not post or share non-consensual sexual content as a whole - even as a joke
  • We understand consent can change at any time. If you do not have explicit and informed consent of the subject - do not post it. This includes sexual AI-generated media 
  • If you find yourself in a server that is sharing this type of content, report it and consider removing yourself from the space
