4.15 Advertisers and publishers should consider if a proposed word or phrase could be construed as offensive to reasonable community standards (publishers should think in terms of their average reasonable readership) and if it is the case that it can be construed as offensive the word or phrase should be rejected.
4.17 The only description of genitals that is permissible is in relation to whether a male has been circumcised. In this respect, the only acceptable words are “cut” and “uncut”. All other descriptions of genitals are prohibited. Example: length of penis.

Note 1: The use of the words “young”, “student”, “girl”, “boy”, or “chick” is permissible when used in conjunction with an age that is at least 18, because it makes explicit that the sex worker is at least 18 years of age.
For example: 22 year old student, or 18+ girl.
