After years of being a space for NSFW artists to reach a community of like-minded individuals to enjoy their work, Tumblr banned adult content in December of 2018 following the app's removal from the Apple store.  This hasty and poorly-executed decision not only displaced NSFW artists, many of whom relied on the exposure they garnered from the site to make a living, but also resulted in the removal of harmless, regular posts improperly identified by the artificial intelligence measures put in place to ban adult content.

Now, after months of declining site traffic, Verizon is looking to offload Tumblr, and Pornhub is interested in buying, which is good news for both exiled artists and SFW blogs that were unjustly censored in the chaos. 

Corey Price, vice president at Pornhub, said in a statement, "We're extremely interested in acquiring the platform and are very much looking forward to one day restoring it to its former glory with NSFW content."

Many will contend that Pornhub’s involvement would definitively result in the site becoming off-limits to minors, but arguably, Tumblr's role in the community has been much more meaningful as a space for exploring sexuality, while all-ages platforms are plentiful elsewhere.  More importantly, If Verizon doesn't sell Tumblr outright, it could potentially be shut down altogether because of its failure to meet revenue targets, making it nothing but a distant memory for everyone.

Let's encourage this acquisition and save Tumblr.
