Gay dating app Scruff forbade profile pics in underwear


Gay hook-up app Scruff has banned jockstraps and other underwear from profile pictures, explain that it was done on demand of AppStore for the app to be possible to download from there. Currently the AppStore policy forbids nudity and that is why the application should either reconsider its content or disappear. The changes to the terms of use were announced by CEO Eric Silverberg on the Scruff website, where he suggested that a lack of policy around profile pictures could lead to Scruff being removed from platforms and the developers had to take actions immediately to avoid the ban turning permanent. “We have also clarified our policy by removing references to hugging and kissing – it is specifically sexually suggesting embraces that may not align with app store guidelines. Given that Scruff is a community that speaks openly and positively about sex, bodies, and intimacy, some feel that such policies are at odds with those values. Such criticism is not unfounded. Scruff respects the concerns voiced by our community on this matter, and we encourage everyone to continue to hold us, and all tech companies, accountable for the content and conduct standards we enforce,” he finished.
