Pornhub & other porn site takedowns

Pornhub’s policy:

“Pornhub takes all content removal requests seriously. Should you be a victim of revenge porn, blackmailing or intimidation because of a video or photo of yourself on our sites that you did not authorize, please complete the form below and we will remove the content expeditiously.”

Pornhub provides a form to request the removal of content, which can be found on their site. While we don’t want to link directly to Pornhub here, you can easily find the takedown page through a Google search for “Pornhub take-down request.”

For any other content removal requests related to copyright infringement by Pornhub, you can email their copyright team or use the DMCA takedown request on the Pornhub site.

Pornhub is one of the most transparent of the major pornography websites about responding to revenge pornography, but some others do offer content removal request options, either via online forms or through an email address you can contact.

Unfortunately, just because sites like this have forms in place doesn’t mean that they will respond to takedown requests quickly, or indeed at all. Some sites only honor takedown requests made under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, meaning that you must be able to prove copyright of the image to have it taken down (in most cases, if you make out a reasonable case that you took the photo yourself, this should be enough). It is worth trying to contact the websites, especially the bigger pornography sites, as they do sometimes respond to take-down requests.

Sites specifically designed to host revenge pornography are often more difficult to contact, and few respond to take-down requests.

Major sites that say they will handle takedown requests, via online form or email, include the following:

  • Pornhub
  • Xvideos
  • Xhamster (though it focuses primarily on copyright infringement, not issues of consent)
  • Xnxx
  • RedTube (provides an administrative email to contact, rather than a form to fill out online)
  • YouPorn
  • PornoBeeg (allows content to be flagged as inappropriate)
  • YouJizz
  • TnAFlix
  • XTube (primarily DMCA take-down)
