Nudity In PoF Advertisements?Page 1 of 1    
Has anyone seen any of the advertisements displaying pictures of topless women? I have seen them a couple of times and I wonder if women are getting the full frontal of the men? I have only seen topless women, but it begs the question...

PoF already has the reputation of being a meat market for hookups as it is, does not displaying ads with topless women reinforce this concept? I am sure women get shirtless guys in their ads, but that is a common societal norm, where as topless women, though legal in Canada, hardly ever acted upon in public.

PoF has rules against posting nudity in profile pictures, yet they display them openly to me (us) in advertising. Is this a double standard?

Just thought I would add something new to the discussions.

Yes this is a double standard, just like when someone post a thread that really needs to be brought out, such as dating and beware of....Plenty fish has rules on that among others, but those pictures are not deleted. However, serious issues are.
the thing is POF is enjoying them pics of naked woman.

I haven't seen these, but hearing that you have troubles me. I am certainly not offended by nudity, but I do not like double standards.

^^^^
But are they posted, or just attached to your email?

The ads bring in the revenue that the Big Fish has royaly enjoyed since the inception of this site. As for topless women on ads, they must be restricted to certain areas for viewing, not seen any here .

I was chatting last nite with a lady and I notices a link (above whos on line) of a completely nude lady top to bottom and commented to my friend who couldn't see it (maybe because everything is filtered). I'm thinking it a "for the men only" to see. Mind you since this site went from "free dating site" to "upgrade your membership" it only seem natural that skin sells and dating is just a novelty. Who Know!

FU2FAQ, that sounds more like a spam account, someone posting an account that POF will delete when discovered, usually pretty fast, but spammers post those trying to get hits, like from you, during the small length of time between posting and deletion. You saw it, and the girl you were talking to didn't because your account is set to show you girls and hers is set to show her guys.

I don't think that is POF, not by any chance. I had my fill of those spammers, often even spam robots, to the point that I literally shut my boards off because of them.

Indeed it might even be you doing it, that is your computer could be a robot and you don't know it. It could be placing those adds here at POF, or even just replacing the links that you see in just your browser. Like substituting that naked girl over top of what otherwise would have been a legitimate POF girl.

If it is your computer the fix is simple, go to a reputable anti spyware co like Spy Bot, Ad Aware, or even Trend Micro, and with a simple scan your problems are fixed until next time. Run them frequently and have less problems. However I do use the word reputable on purpose, there are plenty of programs out there that will add more spyware, or even just remove their competition.

It is hard enough to meet decent women on this site, and having nudity flashed on the screen in the form of ads is not the right kind of encouragement for anyone when contacting someone. Some people have said it is google ad words, that you will only see the nudity ads if you are a prolific porn hunter, which I disagree with, I am also seeing a lot of ads, and not all on this site, about pardon services. I have never been arrested for anything in my life, so why would I need pardon services or be looking? I could site other examples of ads that in no way relate to my online habits. In fact if this argument was true, I would be seeing ads for equipment relating to my businesses since the majority of my online travels is researching gear, trends, training opportunities and other related searches/pages that relate to what I do for a living.

Use CCleaner to flush those images off your computer and delete all browsing history/cache etc., don't play with the settings too much unless you know what you are doing, it is a powerful tool.

CC cleaner wont stop the ads from appearing. Your computer has little to do with it. It is based on your account profile information.

Excuse me, but I have seen a number of nude shots from women when rating images too. Not just nudity, per se, but close ups of their vaginas. Really, ladies!

I also think its an odd choice for women. We'd rather see the "girls" than your holiest of holies.

Not that I condone such behaviour.

its probably NOT pof ad's anyway
and they are just from random adult sites and stuff like that
they just pop up.
i think if your a member or something than they disappear.

i highly doubt these nude ads are pof of any kind.

dancingfire93 - Do you really think PoF is going to let ads be displayed that are not first approved? Very unlikely. PoF is a very targeted site. It may look simple, but it is one of the most profitable singles sites on the web.

You can bet PoF knows exactly what ads are being displayed and to who.

Some of the racks I have seen have been pretty nice though. The quality of women seems to be changing with the increase in fast food sales. I am not into the skinny girls, but there is a difference between healthy sized with some nice curves to over flowing flab and fat. Rolls are not curvy. Rolls are a pastry and some women need to walk away and seriously lower their expectations. You are going to get how you look. Fatty for fatty. Not very PC of me, but it is more reality than not.

While I think the nude ads are two faced on PoFs part. I will none the less enjoy their visual pleasures while surfing though the cellulite and ****y profiles of PoF women.

Apparently, although POF doesn't allow post of nudity to be upload AND posted. It does allow men to upload them and keep them as hidden images. Which in turn they end up sending without any warning to women. The double standards on POF make's you wonder if the site is what it is cracked up to be.

Red_Deer_Guy You say this is in the settings. I have never seen a choice to allow nudity. And as I am an Adult Webmaster as stated in my profile, you would think that if there were some hidden function from POF delivering such, I would see them. I have never seen any nudity on POF, and I have been here for what, a year or so. However I started this game as a computer programmer (hard coder) and I am quite well versed in computers. Spy / Ad ware is the likely culprit. However, I will hedge, and am disappointed that I do not see a POF mod here reputing this issue, their lack of such only lends validity to your claim.
