AdultStuffOnly.com Terms and Condition
AdultStuffOnly.com is a marketplace which allows users to offer, sell, and buy adult related items in a variety of pricing formats. The actual contract for sale is directly between the seller and buyer. AdultStuffOnly.com is not a party to the transaction, and it is not a seller or a traditional auctioneer.

Buying and Selling Products:
We reserve the right to refuse the services offered on the Website to anyone at any time for any reason.
We are not responsible for the descriptions of products or product pricing. Accordingly, all descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at any time without notice. We reserve the right to remove the listing of any product at any time.
Any suggestions we may provide regarding pricing, shipping, and listing is solely informational and you may decide to follow it or not, but you must follow the Terms contained herein. AdultStuffOnly.com has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
Prohibited Products and Practices on AdultStuffOnly.com:
Services implying sexual or adult activity;
Sex toys simulating sex with animals;
Any picture, photograph, slide, video, film, DVD, advertisement or any other method that shows any personal identification of a model, whether in focus or not, is prohibited.
Any picture, photograph, slide, video, film, DVD, advertisement or other adult movie format which shows, depicts, or implies a person is under 18 years of age.
Amateur or hidden camera content not produced by a legitimate studio where all actors were compensated for their performances.
The sale of unauthorized, pirated, or bootlegged copies of movies, videos or films is not allowed. No counterfeit item of any kind may be offered for sale on AdultStuffOnly.com.
Worn and unwashed undergarments, panties, bras or lingerie. If selling any of these it must be clearly stated in the listing that the item(s) are either new or have been washed.
The OFFICIAL CLOCK for auctions is displayed on the page showing the item that is up for auction. Do not rely on your own clock or watch.
Waiting until the last few seconds of an auction to make a winning bid is known as bid sniping. This tactic is used to try to prevent other bidders from having a chance to place a higher bid before the auction ends.
The auction format used at AdultStuffOnly.com eliminates sniping. Any bid made within the last 60 seconds of an auctioned item will extend that auction another 60 seconds.
EXAMPLE: An auction ends exactly at 9:03 PM. A bid comes in 10 seconds before the auction is to end. This bid will extend the time of the auction 60 seconds and it will now end at 9:04 PM. The auction will continue to be extended if more bids come in with less than 60 seconds remaining. If the auction has been extended to, let’s say 9:11 PM, and no additional bids come in, the person with the high bid at 9:11 PM will win the item. We believe this format is better for buyers and sellers versus last second sniping.
The following rules apply to autographed items:
If you are not certain that an autograph is authentic, do not list it for sale.
The changing or making of a document with the intent to defraud is forgery. Passing that document to someone with the intent to defraud is uttering. Both are felonies in most states.
If evidence suggests that a seller is attempting to defraud a buyer with an autograph which is not authentic and purported to be, that seller’s account may be suspended or permanently deactivated by AdultStuffOnly.com.
Sellers of autographs on AdultStuffOnly.com must state in their listing that the autographed item listed is authentic and is backed by a money-back guarantee if proven not authentic.
If no Certificate of Authenticity (COA) exists for the autographed item being sold, the seller must provide one.
The seller’s COA must include:
1. Seller’s name or business name with their email or physical address.
2. Must include a clear description or picture of the autographed item being sold.
If the item being sold has an existing COA from a 3rd party, the name of that 3rd party company or individual who issued the COA must be named in the listing.
All COA's must accompany the autographed item when sent to the buyer.
Photographs with non–authentic autographs MAY NOT be sold in any Autograph category. Photographs with non-authentic autographs must be sold in: Photographs: Signature Reprint category. It must be clearly stated in the title or subtitle that the autograph is not authentic and is a printed or stamped autograph.
Sales of Movies:
All DVD’s, Blu-ray, VHS, Film and other movies must have the following prominently shown in each listing:
All models depicted were 18 years of age or older at the time of production. This video is exempt from and fully compliant with U.S.C. 18 Sec 2257. Model Releases and relevant 2257 information can be obtained from the Custodian of Record listed on either the item and/or box.
The sale of unauthorized, pirated, or bootlegged copies of movies, videos, or films is not allowed. No counterfeit item of any kind may be offered for sale on AdultStuffOnly.com.
To help prevent this:
All DVDs, Blu-rays, VHS and movie films must come with their original case or box and must show the title of the movie along with the factory produced artwork or picture associated with the movie and must be clearly shown on the listing.
If the original box or case is not available, the original factory produced image on the DVD or Blu-Ray, or factory produced label on the VHS tape or film must be present and must be clearly shown on the listing.
DVD's, Blue-rays, VHS tapes, and films that do not meet the above requirements may not be listed on AdultStuffOnly.com
Any movie which shows a label or image which does not appear to be original will be removed at our sole discretion.
The first and primary picture shown by the seller when listing an item for sale must be a picture of the case or box with the factory produced pictures, or the actual DVD, Blu-ray, VHS tape, or film. Stills from the movie may be shown but cannot be the first and primary photo shown.
Because it is impossible to determine what is a "Homemade / Amateur" production vs. what is an illegal bootlegged copy, no "Homemade / Amateur" movies may be sold on AdultSuffOnly.com.
Other Prohibited Practices:
- Do not bid on your own auctions or buy and sell to yourself, your own family, or company in any way.
- Do not leave feedback for yourself after buying from yourself.
- Do not use listings as direct advertisements or links to your non AdultStuffOnly.com store. You are allowed to promote your retail store in your listings by posting your store's phone number and address.
- Sellers may not use AdultStuffOnly.com listings to direct customers to any online page that provides more than simple item information. We expect sellers on AdultStuffOnly.com to sell their items on AdultStuffOnly.com and not use this Website to sell on another website to avoid paying fees to AdultStuffOnly.com.
- Posting links that lead to a malicious website or that attempt to compromise the Website or its users will result in permanent termination of your account.
Financial Transactions on the Website:
You acknowledge and agree that AdultStuffOnly.com is authorized, but not required, to act on any payment instructions received from you. You acknowledge that financial transactions are facilitated by a third-party payment processor (the “Processor”), and agree that we may share your information, including information about your financial accounts, with the Processor for this purpose. You are responsible for paying all taxes on any purchase, fees, or other charges.
Our goal is to keep those who sell on this Website here and at the same time attract new sellers. The best way to do that is to keep seller fees as low as possible. Banks and credit card processing companies tell us what their fees will be. After that is established, we must determine what our fees must be in order to maintain this Website. Most sellers are aware that the adult industry is seen as "high risk" by banks and credit card processors. Consequently, the fees we must pay are higher than if this were not an "adult" website. Although we have no control on what we are charged, we will keep listing and final value fees as low as possible.
Insertion fee: 5 cents per item on auction and fixed price listings of 3,5,7 or 10 days.
Good until Cancelled Insertion Fee: This is a recurring monthly fee of 15 cents for each "Good Until Cancelled" item listed.
Final Value fees: The final value fee is 10% on all items.
Payment of Fees:
All insertion fees for both auction and fixed price listings and Good Until Cancelled Listings are automatically charged when listed by the seller. Sellers are able to end a listing at any time but will be billed for the insertion fee.
Sellers are billed for all fees accumulated for the month on the 1st or 15th day of each month depending on their user name. Sellers whose user name starts with N - Z are invoiced for fees on or about the 1st of each month. Sellers whose names begin with a number or letters A - M are invoiced on or about the 15th of each month.
Each monthly invoice will include an additional $1.00 processing fee.
Sellers must have credit card and billing information saved in their account. ASO will automatically charge the credit card information on file for the fees as stated in the monthly invoice. If payment is rejected or not successfully made the sellers account will be temporarily deactivated until full payment is made.
To Sellers in the USA: Each state has thresholds that need to be met or exceeded in order for sales tax to be required, collected, and remitted. It is the responsibility of each individual seller and not AdultStuffOnly.com to determine the sales tax requirements of the state in which they conduct business as well as the states in which their customers reside. If selling products outside of the USA, it is the seller's responsibility to know that country's tax regulations regarding customs declarations and any Value Added Tax (VAT) that may apply.
To Sellers outside of the USA:
It is the responsibility of sellers outside of the USA and not AdultStuffOnly.com to determine the tax requirements of the country in which they do business. If selling an item to a customer in the USA, it is the responsibility of the seller to abide by the tax laws of the state in which the buyer resides.
Buyer and Seller Responsibilities:
A contract is between two parties. In the same way that a seller is bound by the terms of an auction listing, such a listing is also a contract listing your responsibilities as a buyer. When you bid on a listing - not if you win it, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that you have funds available to pay for the item and that you'll follow through if you do ultimately win the item by actually sending remittance within the time frame specified by the seller.
No buyer likes shipping surprises. Sellers must clearly state in the body of each listing their shipping policies. This includes:
- The method (or carrier) to be used for shipping – i.e. USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.;
- Cost of shipping (if it can be pre-determined);
- When the item will be shipped after full payment is made; and
- Providing the buyer a tracking number if the item shipped is insured.
Refunds and Returns:
AdultStuffOnly.com is a marketplace of independent sellers and buyers. Refunds, returns, and exchanges are handled differently from seller to seller. We disclaim all liability and make no warranties related to refunds and returns.
- Sellers must clearly state their return and/or refund policy in each item listed for sale.
- Buyers should review the seller's refund and/or return policy prior to bidding on or buying any item.
AdultStuffOnly.com provides sellers with an auction format along with a fixed-price listing platform to sell their merchandise. Each seller on AdultStuffOnly.com sets their own policies regarding refunds, returns, or exchanges. When a buyer purchases an item listed on AdultStuffOnly.com, you are buying from a unique seller and not from AdultStuffOnly.com. If there is a problem with a purchase, please contact the seller directly.

Occasionally there may be information on the Website that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies, or omissions. We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to correct any such errors, inaccuracies, or omissions.

18 U.S.C §§ 2257-2257A CERTIFICATIONS; RECORDKEEPING FOR VISUAL DEPICTIONS OF ACTUAL AND SIMULATED SEXUALLY EXPLICIT CONDUCT
In order to protect children from sexual exploitation crimes, federal law imposes name- and age-verification, recordkeeping, and labeling requirements on producers of visual depictions of actual human beings engaged in actual or simulated sexually explicit conduct (See 18 U.S.C. §§ 2257, 2257A). This means that producers of pornography, or depictions of any sexual activity using actual people, are required to verify that the performers are of legal age (18 years old or older) by maintaining records of the performers’ names and ages. They also are required to disclose the location of these records. Under the law, all records are subject to inspection.
Producers using actual people to depict images of simulated sexually explicit conduct or the lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area who regularly within the course of business collect and maintain records of the performers’ identification information can send a certification to the Attorney General verifying their exemption from the aforementioned requirements (See 18 U.S.C. § 2257A).
The certifications should be emailed to: 2257A.firstname.lastname@example.org. CEOS maintains 18 U.S.C §§ 2257-2257A certifications provided by producers of these types of depictions of sexually explicit conduct.

Advisory Board and Forgeries:
AdultStuffOnly.com reserves the right, but not the obligation, to assemble a five (5) member Advisory Board made up of three (3) individuals with experience in autograph collecting and adult industry signatures, and the two Administrators of the Website will also be on this board (hereinafter, the “Advisory Board”). The Advisory Board is not a legal entity, nor does the Advisory Board hold itself out as an expert, individually or collectively, on determining the validity or invalidity of signatures, or the ability to verify signatures or spot forgeries. The Advisory Board is merely an attempt by us to reduce (hopefully to zero) the number of sellers that attempt to pass off forgeries on this Site. Remember however, as stated elsewhere in these Terms, that all sales are between buyers and sellers; we encourage you to carefully review these Terms, including the section regarding “Buying and Selling.”
The Advisory Board provides no warranties, representations, or covenants of any kind whatsoever, express, implied, or otherwise, regarding its ability to accurately determine the validity or non-validity of signatures. Furthermore, references to “we,” “us,” “AdultStuffOnly,” and “our” in the sections below on Disclaimer of Warranties, Limitation of Liability, Release, and Indemnity, are deemed to include the Advisory Board.
