AGREEMENT TO  
VIEW ADULT MATERIAL
The Site is designed and intended SOLELY for ADULTS - people who are at least 18 years old(21 in AL, MS, NE, and WY)-- who are interested in and wish to have access to visual images, verbal descriptions and audio sounds of a sexually oriented, frankly erotic nature. The materials which are available within this site may include graphic visual depictions and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity and should NOT be accessed by anyone who is younger than 18 years old(21 in AL, MS, NE, and WY) or who does not wish to be exposed to such materials. By purchasing a Membership you are making the following statements:   

"Under penalty of perjury, I swear/affirm that as of this moment, I am an adult, at least 18 years of age(21 in AL, MS, NE, and WY)." "I promise that I will not permit any person(s) under 18 years of age(21 in AL, MS, NE, and WY) to have access to any of the materials contained within this site." "I understand that when I gain access to this site, I will be exposed to audio sounds, visual images, and verbal descriptions of a sexually oriented, bluntly erotic nature, which may include graphic visual depictions and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity. I am voluntarily choosing to do so, because I want to view, read and/or hear the various materials which are available, for my own personal enjoyment, information and/or education. My choice is a manifestation of my interest in sexual matters, which is both healthy and normal and, which, in my experience, is generally shared by average adults in my community. I am familiar with the standards in my community regarding the acceptance of such sexually oriented materials, and the materials I expect to encounter are within those standards. In my judgement, the average adult in my community accepts the consumption of such materials by willing adults in cirumstances such as this which offer reasonable insulation from the materials for minors and unwilling adults, and will not find such materials to appeal to a disagreeable interest or to be patently offensive."
