    Google does not entirely prohibits, but the proper term would be "restrcited" in the use of Adwords for adult sites. here's what Google Says:

    Sexual & Adult Content

    Sexual & adult content is restricted.

    Advertising is not permitted for the promotion of child pornography, any sexually suggestive content involving children, or other non-consensual sexual material. We also do not permit ads promoting teen pornography or other pornography that describes models who might be underage.

    Examples include, but are not limited to, advertisements for 'teen xxx', 'teen porn', and 'school girl' pornography. Please note that Google does not allow this content regardless of whether or not a site complies with government regulations on this kind of advertising.

    While approvable adult-related ads can show in some countries, certain countries such as Germany, China, Korea, and India will not show any ads categorized as 'Adult Sexual Content' such as ads with any pornographic content. There may be other effects of family status on how your ads are served.

    Yes you can but it is VERY complicated.

    Here's a hint: Set up a review site. ;)

    Yes, I think you can. However, it is quite complicate as the previous poster said.

    See for example, you shouldn't advertise directly to your website with adult related keywords. In stead, you may try to advertise some anniversary or party or dating or something else not directly related to your materials.

    Make a landing page rather than linking directly to your site, otherwise you won't have a chance.

    They don't allow you to promote adult content at all. But if you make a landing page that doesn't contain any adult stuff, your just going around their rules. They could probally slap you for having bad intensions tough..
