I get that Stack Exchange is a "professional question asking site" (I'm dubious of this claim, mostly because the sheer number of sites dedicated to non-professional topics), however, I think it's funny that there is not any sites dedicated to Not Safe For Work (NSFW) topics.

My biggest example would be Sexual Health. The sheer size of the topic is more than enough to be it's own site, yet we see nothing. The biggest flaw I see is that the questions "may" be on topic at "Health.SE", but more often than not, they will not be, as many will have an interpersonal aspect to the questions as well.

My next example is Arms. We see no millitary-oreinted stack exchange, and I think this is a shame, because this one is even professional. As far as I know, not in the politics SE, nor in Skeptics SE are questions about violence banned, so I do not think such an argument holds water here.

My final example is Substances. This is a weaker argument of mine, but still I think is valid. When I refer to Substances, I mean recreational drugs. This, arguably, has already begun to start with Beer Wine, and Spirits SE. This is another large topic, that would have many questions, many answers, and would generate a lot of user interest I'm sure.

So to be clear my question is: Why doesn't Stack Exchange support NSFW sites, such as those listed above, and overall?

  • Don't fret about the down votes, I didn't vote but I can see guess why some of the votes are cast. The short version is that other then your personal education this question does not really add value for anyone. – James Jenkins Aug 14 at 18:12
  • @JamesJenkins That's... Every question SE wants you to ask. – tuskiomi Aug 14 at 18:17

TL:DR Because they have either not gained sufficient support, or their scope is covered by other sites.

There was a proposal for a Sexaul Health site, it was about the same time as the proposal for what has become https://medicalsciences.stackexchange.com/ at that time community census was that Sex would be covered by the medical site that launched. I believe that sex questions are still in scope there, at least there are 70 questions tagged sex

There is a remaining meta post about it NSFW proposal on Area51

  • good insight, maybe there is some NSFW allowed. I'm happy to see. – tuskiomi Aug 8 at 20:06

    There was also a general "sex" site that failed in private beta, and a number of firearms, weapons, and military proposals that never quite managed to reach critical mass. – Mark Aug 9 at 1:01
