Chris Crocker has deleted his Facebook page, which had 4 million people following it, after the news that Facebook had enacted a brand new “sexual solicitation” policy.

The policy could potentially ban gay, bisexual and transgender users from discussing whether they are top or bottoms on the site as it seeks to ban “sexual hints such as (the) mention of sexual roles, positions or fetish scenarios”.

“Demonizes sexuality”

Chris, who is an internet star, turned adult performer took to Twitter to say that despite the fact he had 4 million followers on Facebook, he would no longer “contribute content to a site that demonizes sexuality”.


Facebook’s community standards say, “Do not post content that engages in implicit sexual solicitation, which can be identified by… using sexual hints such as mentioning sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, sexual preference/sexual partner preference, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), commonly sexualized areas of the body such as the breasts, groin, or buttocks, state of hygiene of genitalia or buttocks.”

The policy change comes just a day after blogging site Tumblr said it was going to remove all adult content from its site.

In a separate Twitter post, Chris wrote:

The internet is becoming Anti-Sex.
