2257 Compliance Statement

Posted in Policies on April 6, 2018

Except with respect to certain content that is posted directly by this website's operators or its partners ("Operators"), all of the content appearing on this website was submitted by third party users/members.

In fulfilling its obligations under 18 U.S.C. 2257 with respect to content submitted by third party users/members, this website relies on the plain language of the statute and on the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Sundance Associates, Inc. v. Reno, 139 F.3d 804, 808 (10th Cir 1998), which held that entities which have no role in the "hiring, contracting for, managing, or otherwise arranging for the participation" of the models or performers, are exempt from the record-keeping requirements of 18 U.S.C. 2257.

Exemption Statement - Non-Explicit Content Produced by Operators:

With regard to all other visual depictions appearing on this Website, for which the operators of this Website are producers, such depictions are exempt from the provision of 18 U.S.C. 2257 and 28 C.F.R. 75 because:

  • they do not portray actual sexually explicit conduct as specifically defined in 18 U.S.C 2256 (2) (A)(i)-(iv);
  • they do not portray depictions of the genitals or pubic area created after July 27, 2006;
  • they do not portray simulated sexually explicit activity created after the effective date of Title 18 U.S.C. 2257A; or, they were created prior to July 3, 1995.
