3 Types of Photos to Avoid

12. July 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Some gentlemen are under the impression that anything goes on Russian dating sites, however this simply isn’t the case. While members of HotRussianBrides enjoy a lot of freedom, there are a few rules users must follow to ensure that everyone has a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience. With this in mind, here are three types of photos we do not permit.


Sexually Explicit Photos

Per HotRussianBrides’ Terms of Use, members are not permitted to post content that “displays or describes pornographic or sexually explicit material of any kind.” Therefore, men should not send the ladies nude photos or crotch shots nor should they attempt to post such photos on HRB profiles.  Not only do photos of members’ members violate our Terms of Use, but many Russian women report being turned off by men who behave inappropriately or those who are preoccupied with sex. Once a couple has completed the Intimacy Request process, they are free to send whatever they wish. Until then, members of HRB should keep things clean.


Photos That Reveal Personal Contact Information

Photos that disseminate “telephone numbers, postal addresses, URLs, instant message IDs, email addresses or any other form of personal contact information” are also a violation of HotRussianBrides’ Terms of Use. Again, couples who complete the Intimacy Request can send whatever they want. However, we believe that couples should spend time getting to know another before revealing their personal contact information. Some members disagree with this policy, but it is our policy all the same, and gentlemen who wish to use HotRussianBrides must abide by these rules.  


Celebrity Pics

Celebrity profile photos are also inappropriate for HRB (unless you are one). Not only do celeb pics violate copyright laws, but they lead the ladies to believe you’re someone you’re not, which is of course against the rules. You don’t have to be George Clooney to land a Russian bride so there’s no need to rely on his photos.

In short, gentlemen (and ladies) are not permitted to send sexually explicit photos, photos that reveal personal contact information, or any other picture that violates HotRussianBrides.com’s Terms of Use. Not sure what's in our Terms? Educate yourself here!
