Via photos, comments and hashtags, many Instagram members are inviting other users to join them for “Kik Sex” on the messaging app Kik, where individuals can chat privately or exchange nude photos. Girls who wanna play post a comment and I’ll kik you,” wrote one Instagram user in a post that included the tags “instaboner,” “instac*ck,” “instahorny,” “instap*ssy,” and “f*ckme.” “Don’t be shy. Hit me up hotties." The post received 17 “likes.” Instagram’s adult-content alter ego comes as no surprise: the deluge of explicit imagery accompanies nearly every social network’s transition to the mainstream.
The explicit images run afoul of Instagram’s terms of service, which prohibit “nude, partially nude, or sexually suggestive photos.” But while Instagram can ban certain activity, it can’t always police it.
With just 15 full-time employees and over five million photos uploaded every day, Instagram depends on its users to report activity that violates the service’s policies.
Interaction here will likely include people teens don't know personally but are in the same zip code, state, or entire U. 's terms ban images that contain "nudity (includes thongs and topless females from the back), pornography, sexually explicit, weapons, violence, or drugs." But a lot of photos and written posts are clearly sexually suggestive, even if they don't technically break the rules.
A profile setting asks users to select whether they are looking for girls, boys, or both (not looking isn't an option).
But beyond the food porn that regularly tops Instagram’s “most popular” list lurks an abundance of, well, porn porn.
