Amazon Web Services

Amazon’s Acceptable Use Policy essentially prohibits pornography as it says “obscene” material is not allowed and almost all mainstream pornography fits the definition of obscenity (which is illegal, but those laws are not enforced). However, it does little to enforce this policy, especially when it comes to websites hosting non-consensually recorded and/or shared intimate acts.

Offensive Content. Content that is defamatory, obscene, abusive, invasive of privacy, or otherwise objectionable, including content that constitutes child pornography, relates to bestiality, or depicts non-consensual sex acts.

Amazon is host to prostitution website OnlyFans.
