Siri Dahl Says “Some Exec At Mastercard Has a Fear of Things in His Butt”

I read an interesting headline today on social media that says, Siri Dahl Says OnlyFans Bans Tags For Fisting and Pegging: “Some Exec At Mastercard Has a Fear of Things in His Butt,” but there's so much more to that story. Siri Dahl Says “Some Exec At Mastercard Has a Fear of Things in His Butt” I would have assumed someone who has been around as long as Siri Dahl would have known better, but let's take a deep dive into what the real issue is here. Because I think it's important that everyone has a bigger understanding of what's really going on with these Visa and Mastercard rules. Pegging, for those that don't know, is a sexual act in which someone penetrates another person's anus, usually with a strap-on dildo. And for a long time, the use of the word "pegging" was one of those banned keywords. But why? A man can stick his dick in a woman's ass, so why is the opposite banned? It didn't make sense. Other banned keywords include things like bestiality, blood, blackmail, lolita, and so on. Those words are obvious. But what is so wrong with pegging? Other words that are banned based on topics were banned are those that the government typically deems as obscene, with the exception of pegging. It was an interesting subject that I tried to bring up with OnlyFansl like 200 zillion times. In fact, I had an opportunity to speak to several reps from Visa regarding the proposed 2021 changes, and I asked about the ban on the word pegging. I asked three different reps from Visa and one from Mastercard. Each time I was met with confusion. they had no idea what I was talking about that wasn't one on any list they were aware of. And after months and months of back and forth and lots and lots of bitching, I'm happy to say OnlyFans finally removed the ban on the keyword pegging. This happened, I guess, about a year ago. I could be remembering the date wrong, but I'm happy to say it's still not a banned keyword. See a post made today in my screenshot below OnlyFans and Pegging We were still never able to figure out why a man could fuck a girl in her ass, but a girl couldn't do the same. But we are going to chalk it up to a mistake and be happy that the word pegging is no longer banned on OnlyFans. But let's talk about fisting. This is a banned keyword because the act of fisting someone is considered obscene in most jurisdictions. This isn't because Visa and Mastercard are being uptight or bitchy. This is because, well ... porn is legal, but obscenity is not.
“Some of it is very queer-phobic, like ‘fisting.’ ‘Fisting’ is not allowed. I cannot put the word ‘fisting’ on OnlyFans. ‘Pegging’ is not allowed,” Siri Dahl says. “It’s just because some executive at Mastercard has a fear of things in his butt?”
Is that the case, or is she just not understanding the law? Because, in the end, the ban on fisting has almost nothing to do with Visa and Mastercard regulators and everything to do with federal law. Despite Siri Dahl's confusion on the subject, it has nothing to do with FOSTA-SESTA and everything to do with a law that dates back decades. And it's very important that content creators understand this because I don't want to see anyone ending up in jail over some video they made for their OnlyFans page. A person can produce porn that is not deemed "obscene," but what is obscene, you ask? Well, it depends on the location where you live. What's obscene in Nebraska, may not be so in New York City. There was a thing called “The Miller Test.” It is a very conservative ruling by the courts that basically told what was and wasn’t illegal or actually “obscene.” The Miller test is based on specific court cases, which are Miller v. California (1973), Smith v. United States (1977), and Pope v. Illinois (1987). The test is as follows:
Whether the average person, applying contemporary adult community standards, would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest (i.e., an erotic, lascivious, abnormal, unhealthy, degrading, shameful, or morbid interest in nudity, sex, or excretion); AND Whether the average person, applying contemporary adult community standards, would find that the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct (i.e.: ultimate sexual acts, normal or perverted, actual or simulated; masturbation; excretory functions; lewd exhibition of the genitals; or sadomasochistic sexual abuse); AND Whether a reasonable person would find that the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.
Notice the part that says “patently offensive" .... that's the part that a jury can use to decide if what they are looking at is offensive to them and the community they are part of. If a jury finds the material they are viewing OBSCENE, then that material is in violation of the law. So the question is, what is OBSCENE, and what is not? Again that depends on where you live, BUT normally (historically, that is) if
  • has no storyline
  • has no socially redeeming value
  • or effects somebody in a way that it would not normally affect them
It would be considered OBSCENE by a jury (based on the Miller test). Therefore in violation of the law, since obscenity is against the law. That is the point. You should avoid what is OBSCENE or what may easily be deemed obscene. I have also read another three-prong test which is basically the same as above, with just a few tiny differences. That test is
  • An item must be prurient in nature
  • A thing must be completely devoid of scientific, political, educational, or social value
  • A thing must violate the local community standards
So what this really means is that banned keywords aren't just Visa and Mastercard trying to annoy you. In most cases, those banned keywords are based on sexual acts that have or could easily be deemed obscene. Let's take the word sleep or drunk. What's so wrong with that? Well, if a person is asleep or drunk, they can't legally consent to a sexual act. So if they can't consent, then you just sexually assaulted that person. Sexual assaulting someone is deemed obscene. This is why when you try and post something on platforms like OnlyFans and find the keyword is banned. It's to protect them from getting in legal trouble for allowing you to post content that is possibly illegal. So just remember that the next time you go to create a video. If a keyword is banned on a platform like OnlyFans, FanCentro, or ManyVids ... it's banned for a reason.
