Amazon bans itself from Twitch over nudity regulations

Twitch, an Amazon-owned livestreaming network, has banned one Amazon Prime Video channel after a presenter seemed to inadvertently disclose her breast during a live performance.

Twitch’s official Spanish-language Prime Video channel was suspended on Sunday for no apparent reason. However, the event occurred during a segment on the discussion program Esto es un Late.

“For those who present as women, we ask that you cover your nipples. We do not permit exposed under bust,”

As reported by BBC. It also does not permit “sexually suggestive content” such as a camera focus on “breasts, buttocks, or pelvic region”.

The Esto es un Late hosts were at the end of their weekend stream when one of them – comedian Henar Alvarez – lifted her shirt partway, apparently joking that it was one way to end the hours-long broadcast.

“We’re about to be banned,” she said, laughing. “Come on. They’re going to ban us!”

The stream then cut to a title card for a moment – but then returned to the live feed a split-second before Ms Alvarez’s breast vanished from view. The stream quickly ended – but within a few hours, the channel was banned from Twitch.

Twitch, which launched as a video game streaming service but has evolved into an all-purpose platform, has had various issues with sexually suggestive content over the years.

Women who dressed in a style that some found provocative were mockingly referred to as “booby streamers” by critics in the past. As a result, the “dress code” was revised in 2018.

More recently, the “hot tub meta,” in which streamers broadcast in swimwear from an indoor hot tub, generated similar concerns about what is and is not permitted.

It’s encouraging to see Twitch creating strict social norms, as filthiness is unacceptable on social media platforms like Twitch. There are various sugar daddy applications available for folks who have such desires.
