Q: What is Fleshbot?
A: This is what it's not: it's not "erotica," it's not "literate smut," it's not a thumbnail gallery post, it's not a sex or adult industry news site, and it's not an academic porn review - although we do cover all of those things from time to time.

Q: So, if it's not erotica or literate smut or academic or news, what is it?
A: It's Fleshbot. Look around and see.

Q: I like straight porn. What's with all the gay stuff?
A: Fleshbot wants to stimulate all varieties of tastes and sexualities. If you don't like what you see on the main page, simply use the text and graphic buttons in the sidebar to filter the content which most interests you.

Q: I like gay porn. What's with all the straight stuff?
A: See above.

Q: I like <insert particular category here>. Why don't you include that?
A: Probably because we haven't gotten around to it yet. You can always send us a link to a site that tickles your fancy and we'll check it out.

Q: What does "TGP/preview gallery" mean?
A: TGP is online porn shorthand for Thumbnail Gallery Post, which refers to some adult sites which feature preview galleries from pay sites, often in exchange for a commission or link exchange. Fleshbot isn't a TGP site, although we do post links to them when they come from trusted sources and only after we've tested them.

Q: How do I know the sites you link to won't screw up my computer?
A: Because we don't want to screw up our computers either, and because we check out every link on Fleshbot before we post it. Read our notice on Popups, Viruses, and Links for more information.

Q: How else can I avoid popups and viruses when surfing porn?
We recommend using the Google Toolbar if you're on Windows. If you're on a Mac, use Safari as your default browser and make sure the "Block Pop-Up Windows" option is enabled. Keep your virus definitions up-to-date and scan your computer regularly for parasitic software—a good idea no matter what kind of sites you're visiting online. More information here.

Q: This link is dead/This site you linked to has too many popups or ads/My computer crashed when I visited X. You suck.
A: Like we said, we do our best to make sure that all links on Fleshbot are current and free of pop-ups, viruses, and parasitic software. But links in the online porn world tend to change or become outdated quickly. Drop us a note if you come across anything that doesn't seem to be working, or working badly, and we'll check it out.

Q: Link exchange?
A: We don't do link exchanges. But if you'd like us to check out your site, let us know about it.

Q: Who writes your posts?
A: They're all written by the editor, who has a disconcerting habit of referring to himself in the third person, with occasional help from his Fleshbot porn minions.

Q: I found a site that's ripping off your links/text/graphics. Are you going to do something about it?
A: Probably not. We think imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And besides, karma will out.

Q: Can I send you free porn?
A: Yes.

Q: No, really, I have some DVDs/sex toys/magazines/products I'd like to send you to consider for review. Can I?
A: Yes. Contact the editor for more information.

Q: Can I send you naked pictures of myself?
A: Only if you are hot.

Q: I want to be a porn star.
A: Good luck!
