    Underage Characters in Sexual or Voilent Situations

    We have done our best to create clear boundaries on what is and is not appropriate for younger characters on BD. You are allowed to have children in your stories but they should not be involved in sexual situations or excessively violent situations. This means that characters under 18+ mentally or physically should not be involved in sexual scenes. If your character looks to be 12 physically, but mentally they are 18, they still could not be put in a sexual scene. If they are 100 years old but mentally 12, they cannot be in a sexual scene. They must be 18 in body and mind.

    If you are wondering why we used the age of 18 and not 16 or 17, the site itself is hosted in the US where the age of consent varies from state to state. We wanted to be safe rather than sorry.

    In terms of violence, we would ask that children are not greatly injured, harmed, tortured and do not witness such acts in the RP.

    Sex and violence can be a part of a character's backstory, but we ask that it only be mentioned in less detailed ways. Please do not write out scenes where your character was abused as a child.

    Admins also reserve the right to use their judgment when a character's age is not stated, but the character seems to be acting or being treated as if they are very young. We allow age play, but we do not allow "age regression" in sexual situations. It can be incredibly difficult for the admins to tell if a character is a consenting adult if age is not stated and the character is acting excessively young.

    If you plan to do a DDlg or MDlb RP, you must explicitly state the ages of all characters involved in the RP and "littles" should not be infantilized or childish during sexual scenes. If it appears that the character is over 18, but mentally de-aged during sexual scenes, you will be banned from the forum.

    Our rules on this matter are strict because we do not want to attract members who wish to pursue pedophilic or pseudo-pedophilic stories.

    This is a rule we do not ask a lot of questions about if you have already written underage or underage-seeming characters into sexual scenes. If the sexual scene has begun to be written, you will be banned from the site. If a character sheet contains a character who is underage and seems to be headed for a sexual situation, we may issue a warning, but we still reserve the right to ban if it seems like the aim is to attract underage sexual RP.

    Bestiality & Necrophilia

    BD defines bestiality as sexual acts between humans and animals you would typically find in the real world. If you intend for your story to have sex between a human and animals like dogs, large cats, horses, etc, it is not allowed, even if you give those animals some kind of sentience. We do not want to end up in a gray area with this rule where users want to 'fuck fido' but get around the rule by making fido have human-like intelligence. If it is an animal you find in the real world, you can't write a story where it has sex with a human on BDRP.

    We do allow some stories to have sexual elements if they involve creatures based completely in fantasy, like dragons, were-creatures, Nekos, Anthros etc. If we worry that you are using those creatures to skirt the bestiality rule you may still face consequences.

    We do not allow Necrophilia in stories. You cannot have a character have sex with a dead body or portray a scene where someone has sex with a dead body in any amount of detail.

    Ultimately, judgment on whether or not a scene violates our bestiality rules is up to staff. If you are worried you may violate the rule in a story you are writing, we suggest changing the story.

    Minor Harassment Issues
    Sometimes a friend or former friends get into conflicts. We ask if this happens, please use the ignore feature. Do not post aggressive or passive aggressive statuses or messages. You will be asked to stop and the statuses will be removed from public view.

    Major Harassment Issues
    Unwanted Sexual Behavior/Advances
    First and foremost, do not be a creep. Sending members of the site unsolicited sexual requests or content will get you banned from the forum. We are not a dating site and while we understand that RPers often establish close relationships with other members, your primary intention here should be to write and create stories.

    Stalking
    This one is fairly common sense. If someone blocks you or cuts contact, do not try to get their attention by other means. This includes: Asking other members to contact them for you, posting in ways to catch their attention, posting in discord channels to try to get their attention.

    Excessive Aggression/Rudeness
    If you are constantly rude or aggressive to other members you may be banned from the forum. BD works hard to limit drama and conflict on the site and if every message you send or conversation you have ends in insults and name-calling, we may choose to remove you from the site for being excessively disruptive and hurtful towards other members.

    Asking For Private Information
    Do not ask for private information from other members repeatedly. This includes but is not limited to information like a member's RL name, gender, sexuality, and location. If you only wish to RP with members of a certain gender, you are fine to request that, but you should only seek out those that openly share that information. Do not press members for it privately.

    Excessive Aggression Toward Staff
    Our staff puts in many hours each week to ensure we have a safe and fun community. To be frank, if you choose to constantly make our job more difficult by always being rude or aggressive for things like rules reminders or warning points, we reserve the right to remove you from the community. We do our best to be fair with this and we understand that everyone gets frustrated at times, but you do not get to endlessly abuse staff without consequences. We're people too. Just be nice.
