    I don't think you can get into trouble from getting backlinks from Adult sites. Sometimes backlinks are not something that are in your control, anyone can post your site on their site. Still if it bothers you then you should request those websites to take down your link.

    I thought competitors create such links to destroy your link building schemes, but I dont think it will work.

    Don't worry about it - keep building good links, and creating good content.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I guess I am just going to ignore it as contacting webmaster for each link can take up lot of my time

    you can`t totally take care of all your backlinks. if someone wishes to put a link to your site you can`t do a thing. but it will not affect you, indeed

    Don't worry about, just build quality links, and those links will overrule the adult links and won't affect SERPS.

    If your site isnt in the adult industry, this could class your site as a bad neighbourhood and get your site penalised with Google. Just contact the sites and ask them to remove the links - if they are in the blogroll etc, this normally works.

    I don't think that Backlinks should matter. As Google pays little or no attention to spammy links and these links either have no value or worth that is why you shouldn't matter. They can't really harm your site. To counter them just build links to high PR related sites.

    Geester is spot on. I agree with him.

    There are many reasons why one get links from other sites to which they have not linked to.
    1)If the article you have posted in article directories are used by others in their own site you can get links from different domains, TLDs.
    2)If at any stage you have used any automated submission services then you don't have any control over from where the links come
    3)I have seen competitors link the sites to other bizzare sites in order to bring down the page rank as well as top SERP

    If you are not comfortable with those link or have slightest of doubt that these links are not going to help your site in anyway or some kind of spamming is going on then you should block them.

    Solution

    If you have links coming from bizzare sites, take them down ASAP.
    If you have links from sites that have nothing to do with your verticle, take them down ASAP.

    1) Send a polite mail to the webmaster or site owner stating your problem with a solid proof and make them to remove your link. I know it's tiring task to contact each webmaster, but never leave it for granted because lot of spoofing, spamming etc can happen in the long run then it would be too late to control.
    2) If they don't respond to your polite mail, try to contact their webhosting company and state your problem.
    3) After all these efforts if they don't respond to your request, send them C&D threatening of legal action and report the same to Google.

    Note: I would suggest you take all the valid proof of the link, check them from where it's coming, landing page etc from Google Analytics before you approach them.
