Image Rules and Classification

Here you'll find everything you need to about how your images are classified, how long it takes, and what can and can't be uploaded.


When uploading an image to your profile, all photos go through a two-stage process before they are visible.  

1.  Images are classified by the Fetish.com community using the ‘Activate Photos’ feature (only available to members who have a Premium or VIP account and have completed the 18+ check and have a verified profile).  

Images are classified into three main categories: 

  • SFW (Safe For Work)
  • ASFW (Almost Safe For Work)
  • NSFW (Not Safe For Work)

These categories are split into images that contain people and those that don't (objects). See below for more on what these categories mean.

2. Images are then activated by our admin & support teams.  If you feel your image has been classified incorrectly, please contact the support team.

Please note the following:

  • Please only upload images in .png or .jpg format.
  • Each newly uploaded image must be activated by an admin, while we aim to do this as quickly as possible, this can take up to (max) three working days.
  • Images that contain/represent another person or people other than the profile owner will not be unlocked (e.g. the only exception is if you already have a ‘couple’ profile).
  • Images that do not match the gender stated in the profile, will not be unlocked. (This is not applicable, however, to trans or non-binary profiles).
  • While anyone can upload sexual photos to their gallery, only those with a Premium or VIP membership with an 18+ check can view them.
