sugihstore, actionlog

9 Jan

The first line of their profile says “We’re resellers in partnership with a Hong Kong, USA and Indonesia distributor.”


Am I missing something? I thought it was against Etsy TOU to have porn or is vintage Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse etc not considered porn? I have just been doing searching on what is against their rules due to the CNN report and wonder why I found a number of shops that sell these magazines. Not to mention most don’t have mature on it and actually show pictures of from the magazines. Look down your shirt and spell Attic.

I’m an adult I can handle it but some of the listings such as museumgoround have flashcards in the same place they have these magazines.

    Frankly, I don’t have a problem with the vintage men’s magazines. I’ve seen more exposure on television, which is more accessible than the listings on Etsy. Vintage Playboy is so much less raunchy than today’s Playboy… hardly what we would call “porn”.

    Heck, you can find realistic phallic representations, paintings of people vomiting and worse, and words sewn on items of clothing and dolls that I would not consider using in everyday life sold on etsy. Vintage men’s mags? Not even on my radar.

    “We’re resellers in partnership with a Hong Kong, USA and Indonesia distributor.”

    Per the Etsy playground, this would fall under Freedom of Speech.

    (On sugihstore) Check out this feedback from a buyer:

    Terrble rip off. Thought I was buying a concert quality shirt, received terrible knockoff, obviously amateur homemade. X Large shirt had tiny emblem and was not even centered. This is the reason I rarely buy anything online, too many amaturs marketing their knock off products as the “real thing”.

    Goes to show that buyers have no idea what Etsy is about either. It’s just another online marketplace to get cheap licensed crap. I’m sure if it was actually handmade it would be of decent quality. Resellers are not only padding Etsy’s wallet, they’re running their reputation into the ground.

    3 months is wayyy to long for such an obvious reseller shop to be open. Icky.

    Obviously no one working for Etsy has the brains to make a bot to search shop announcements, profiles, and policies for the words: reseller, supplier, wholesale and related terms.

    sugihstore gets to stay because they are like a welcome mat for all other resellers: pssst! don’t pay any attention to this site’s restrictive TOU — we resellers are totally welcome here!

    PORN is PORN. Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse etc it doesn’t belong on Etsy according to there TOU. Neither do resellers. Point is they aren’t really enforcing their TOU at all.

    Do a search for Pipes. You can get vintage tobacco though who would want to smoke it lol

    I would really like to see the percentage of items flagged that are actually taken down. I guess that isn’t fair because there are people who flag but don’t understand what exactly they are flagging for.

    I was flagged once. I received an e-mail from an admin. Well I’ve got lots of listings so I asked which listing was the issue and they said after looking it over my store they didn’t see an issue and apologized. I don’t think they look at all! I was flagged for tag words not being a reseller or copy right stuff so maybe they handle that different.

    @Etsydontcare: Porn is *subjective*. It’s not like saying you’re pregnant or you’re not. If you have a definition that everyone can agree on as to where the line is drawn, I’d like to see it.

    At one time (when I was young) television programs could not show two *married* people in bed together. (the Dick Van Dyke show had TWIN beds for Laura and Rob) Now? Sexual suggestiveness is embarrassingly (to me) frequent in every sitcom. The earlier men’s mags were not even close to what folks consider “porn” now.

    That said, I wish all this “vintage” crap would just go away. Let it sell in antique shops and on ebay and let’s have a truly handmade venue. But no one asked me.

    Dirty mags are PORN as far as I’m concerned and if it wasn’t you wouldn’t have to be 18 to buy it. Would you buy your child a subscription to any of those magazines? Would you leave them around for a child to be looking at?

    Do you think you will ever see a magazines like these at your dentist office so you can browse through them.

    There is hardcore porn and softcore porn. I would say Playboy is soft. Penthouse and Hustler hard, and as I said if Etsy’s TOU says no PORN then it should be there. Hardcore or softcore.

    Those mags are far less objectionable than the vagina pops and penis soap.

  10. Jael January 11, 2011 at 5:58 am #

    No, I wouldn’t want to see Playboy or Penthouse in my dentist office. What’s your point? I also wouldn’t want to see “f—” earrings, penis plushies, placenta pillows, vagina necklaces or glass dildos… all of which are sold on Etsy. Do you get my point? I don’t think so.

    Heck, if I ran the zoo, the TOUs would be different.

    That’s the last I’m posting on this subject.

    I give up. You aren’t reading and understanding what I wrote, so I give up.

    My point is lol that Etsy doesn’t adhere to there TOU wasn’t supposed to be an argument about what is porn or what is acceptable porn. Next you will see vintage videos if they aren’t already out there.

    Wouldn’t they be Glass Massagers 🙂 And the glass pipes most state that they are not responsible for the use and I think it is pretty clear what someone is going to be using a pipe or bong for.

    I wouldn’t call the vintage magazines “porn”. I have a collection of old ones from the 50’s and 60’s.

    I am not familiar with all of the magazines in question, but am familiar with playboy, and have never considered the images in it to be pornography. Must add that I have run across some old magazines that were pornographic, but they were not widely published.

    I had a large nude painting in my living room for years and did licensed daycare and raised my children with nude photography, sculpture and paintings that were visibly displayed in the open… No one ever raised an eyebrow or brought it up as being a concern.

    Mere nudity in itself does not constitute pornography.

    The only thing I find offensive in those older mens mags are some of the cartoons and articles, but then you have to consider the era in which they were published.

    I had a bunch of my grandfathers vintage Playboys, please. I know it was considered porn from back in the day but you see more going to the movies now-a-days.

    OMG, flash cards??? What degenerates! :O

    Nope, I have no problem with the vintage Playboys, etc… Lots of people use them for altered art and mixed media, although I think it’s a shame to cut them up (unless they’re damaged). Make a copy of what you want in your art and save the original! 🙂
