Prohibited adult items policy

Adult and sexual wellness items banned by eBay are not allowed.

At our discretion, we prohibit items which depict or describe adult content that we believe is not suitable for eBay.

What is the policy?

The following or similar adult items are not allowed:

  • Services implying sexual or adult activity
  • Sex toys simulating sex with animals
  • Amateur or hidden camera content not produced by a legitimate studio where all actors were compensated for their performances
  • Digitally delivered adult content
  • Memberships for adults only clubs/establishments

Activity that doesn't follow eBay policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.
