    I'm just writing some jokes for my site and was wondering if it's okay to use the term "sex" on my pages with Adsense?

    ...and how about YPN?

    I don't know, I suppose not, If It's not a Porn site then normal people will be going on it and seeing porn.

    So probally not.

    I wonder if these words would put you on googles radar even if they were legit and give google moe reason to close an account on 'suspicio' of click fraud?

    "Sex" as a word does not make your content "pornographic" on its' own. It is very commonly used within niches like health, fashion, pshycology etc. if you know when an image or text goes beyond the limit and becomes "for adults only", you should be fine.

    Your site is full of adult content, it uses words like f*ck , ma*turbating, etc. So its against Google's terms.

    But the word "sex" is not always related to adult. Say if you have site regarding to health and one of its page is about sexual health then its good for adsense, nothing wrong in it.

    So it always depends upon what is the main niche of your site.

    It might actually depend since the word SEX can have 2 meanings such as "whats your sex?" (male or female) or "lets have sex". Using just the word sex i doubt it is against the tos. Now, if on the page there is the words like f*ck m***urba*ion than it would display adult t0ys ads etc, which would be breaking the tos.

    if your web site does not contain any adult or porn content, you will not get any problem with the adsense

    Your jokes should be fine, just as long as you don't have porn on your site.
