8-31-14 Furfunding Highlights
This week’s illustration is from the animation project, Gym Rat Squad.
I have been up to my elbows in smutty projects lately. On and off I’ve been bookmarking and skimming adult projects on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, to see how those projects fly, and what the general range of acceptability is.
Weirdly, Indiegogo allows porn but not nudity–kind of–and Kickstarter allows nudity but not porn.
To clarify, Indiegogo will let you fund almost anything, as long as the content on their home page isn’t objectionable or illegal, but they want to keep their site family friendly. Outright pornography may actually be beyond the Indiegogo pale, I haven’t seen that tested yet (of course, that could be because the pages got pulled down, it’s hard to say.) At the end of the day, though, they don’t want nudity on their page, which seems to be their biggest sticking point.
Kickstarter has rules against pornography, even as a reward/project, so you can’t post a project with pornographic content and just not display imagery. However, they have no problem at all with artistic nudity, even on their project pages. I have seen evidence that male nudity is much less artistic than female nudity, but it’s not something I have the ability to prove.
Anyway, that’s where my head’s been. The world needs to know.
Reviews this week: Cartoon cuteness with Lizardbeth on Patreon, and wacky porn tabletop RPG adventures with FAPP.

|What’s Corbeau Backing This Week?
I’ve talked about a few of the projects I’m backing this week, beginning with ongoing funding for Lizardbeth on Patreon, then FAPP, because it was too absurd not to back. So far as non-furry projects go I backed “Summoner’s Circle,” which is sort of like Chinese Checkers meets the Kabbalah meets 16th century demonology. I had no way to avoid backing this project.
