Publisher of adult industry trade publication XBIZ has written an open letter to Google urging the tech giant to reconsider its position on adult-oriented advertising.

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

In response to Googles recent decision to ban advertising of adult-oriented websites through its AdWords advertising platform, Alec Helmy, president and publisher of adult industry trade publication XBIZ, has written an open letter to Google urging the tech giant to reconsider its position.*

As of last Monday, Google prohibits any promotion of most sexually themed sites.*

In notifying businesses potentially affected by the policy change, Google said in an email, Beginning in the coming weeks, we'll no longer accept ads that promote graphic depictions of sexual acts including, but not limited to, hardcore pornography; graphic sexual acts including sex acts such as masturbation; genital, anal, and oral sexual activity.*

When we make this change, Google will disapprove all ads and sites that are identified as being in violation of our revised policy.*

Helmy notes that a national organization that publicly opposes porn, already has taken credit for Googles decision.
