    Alright you guys, no more sexy tops, pasties, or bare chests while you are streaming. I guess this is going to put a cramp on all the cleavage being shown on certain Twitch channels. :eek:

    Had I known Twitch had this, I might have actually watched it. :)

    Thank you twitch.

    I was more than a little tired of having to compete for viewers with unskilled chicks with zero personality and zero anything except their willingness to show as much tit as they could get away with.

    Thank you Twitch. Too many streams where there were more pixels allocated to female-breast-cleavage crack than game-window.

    Females should simply be banned from playing games.

    Doesn't say anything about cleavage. "Sexually suggestive" is vague enough a term for them to deal with things on a discretionary basis.

    I'm sure all 5 of them will be drowned out by the din of unenlightened straight male gamers who make it their life's work to make anyone different from them feel unwelcome in any multiplayer game or gaming discussion.

    Acceptable playing porn based games is not acceptable or modding a game to have nudity.

    Btw they also banned getting blackout drunk on your stream <- good luck to all those alcoholics.

    Going shirtless <- aimed at those guys who refuse to wear a shirt as well as girls wearing underwear.

    The best part is the "I'm not looking for attention" on her description. LOL.

    more than likely it'll follow the jtv ban schedule where if someone wants attention there will be spare accounts making the ban ineffective

    Damn, I was going to start a channel and film with most of my man tackle hanging out, no tip though, that would be lewd.

    They can't because it applies to males too. Guys like that one Mega Man speed runner who often stream shirtless will have to put on a shirt too.

    We're guys, anything clothing is suggestive and we get horny at the drop of a dime.
    The only option, just take clothes out of the equation all together.
    Watch female gamers' channel subscriptions go through the roof.

    I guess I don't get it I thought to point of twitch was to watch the game, I didn't realize there were all these really popular streams that just show a person sitting in a chair.

    Sometimes they stream also... but their face overlays 40% of the video.

    yeah I thought that was the point too, I clicked on the above twitch link and noticed the chatroom is apparently filled with the teen kiddies, but still don't know why there's a tiny window with him playing an online cardgame.

    Well to be fair, it's more about setting standards for their own site. They have to draw the line somewhere in order to ensure that the site's focus remains on gaming only, and not get turned into some webcam for horny guy site.

    If someone wishes to use their own body for money, that's fine but they will have to do it somewhere else and not on a streaming service meant for gaming.

    Doubtful. It's rather embarrassing that a lot of males have "made" quite a few mediocre streamers a reality simply because they have a nice face and decent rack. Sadly predictable, but for the office nerds I imagine anything to make an 8 hour day go by faster is worth giving someone undeserved fame.

    Not hard to find these ladies and some former porn star streamers. Just google search Top 100 twitch streamers and just about every female on it falls into this category on that list.

    Just think what your kids might think if they catch a glimpse of a tit while watching people getting dismembered in "The Evil Within".
    I so hate Christian Taliban.
