Sales of adult items on a Mod sim.

Question

I looked at the SL adult content wiki and didn't see an answer for my question. My shop is on a Moderate sim, if I create adult items (furniture) can I sell it in my shop ?

From the Knowledge Base with my added emphasis:

Moderate Parcel_lght_M.png

Second Life's Moderate designation accommodates most of the non-adult activities common in Second Life. Dance clubs, bars, stores and malls, galleries, music venues, beaches, parks, and other spaces for socializing, creating, and learning all support a Moderate designation so long as they do not host publicly promoted adult activities or content and do not use adult search tags. Groups, events and classifieds that relate to this broad range of activities and themes generally should also be designated as Moderate.

Residents in these spaces should therefore expect to see a variety of themes and content. Stores that sell a range of content that includes some "sexy" clothing or objects can generally reside in Moderate rather than Adult regions. Dance clubs that feature "burlesque" acts can also generally reside in Moderate regions as long as they don't promote sexual conduct, for instance through pose balls (whether in "backrooms" or more visible spaces). However if any of these businesses uses adult-oriented search tags, the region may be categorized as Adult and blocked from appearing in non-Adult search.

The important words here are "as long as they don't promote sexual conduct."  You may sell a sex bed, but you can't use one on your front lawn or rez one in a public park to engage in sexual activity. It's a fair bet that you can't allow people to do a full field test on a demo unit in your store either. It's the activity that is not allowed, not the objects.

It is for this reason we moved from a moderate parcel to our own adult region a few years ago when we needed more space for our store.  You have no idea how many times I had to kick out naked noobs using the store as a free sex location.  It still happens now but at least I won't get in trouble for it.  

Also the part about keywords is important for your land description.

You'll see signs in some shops in moderate regions that warn people to keep their clothes on when trying adult furniture. Whether or not that gets you off the hook, those shops are still open.

Also, it isn't like the Lindens have cops on patrol. It is when someone complains that you run into problems.

Best to try and do it right. But, you can get away with a lot in SL... until you don't.
