Per a recent announcement from the team at Harriet Sugarcookie, the men’s lifestyle and now former porn site Sugarcookie.com has removed all its adult content due to “censorship by governments and Silicon Valley giants.”

In her blog post, “No more porn on Sugarcookie.com,” site founder Harriet Sugarcookie informed fans that she is removing all the porn from Sugarcookie.com. Luckily, fans of Sugarcookie’s pornographic content will still be able to access her videos at a new, dedicated adults-only site, Sugarcookie.xxx.

Sugarcookie explained the reasons for the split, emphasizing how her non-adult content, which includes sexual health advice, male grooming and relationship advice, doesn’t appear in Google searches due to Sugarcookie.com being labeled an adult site.

“Most articles at Sugarcookie.com are completely unrelated to pornography,” said Sugarcookie. “We don’t believe it’s fair for those articles to be penalized because of how Google has categorized our site.”

According to Sugarcookie, it’s not just Google censoring her content. She’s had three YouTube channels, two Facebook pages and an Instagram account deleted.

Sugarcookie said, “Currently we get social media accounts deleted at random because they think we’re sharing links to pornography. We’re not. We’re asking people why their balls itch?”

Sugarcookie.com is also subject to credit card companies’ censorship rules — rules that even govern what text can appear on a site.

As an example, “If we write an article explaining the origins of tentacle porn in hentai, it’s classified as promoting beastiality — rather than an informative discussion about art — and we run the risk have having payment processing stopped on our site,” Sugarcookie shared.
