The Issue with the Hot Tub Meta
Recently in the twitch community, there has been a rise of hot tub streamers also known as the "Hot Tub Meta". This has been a very controversial issue but I'm going to give my thoughts on the issue and hopefully twitch will do something about this. On twitch TOS it's stated "Content or camera focus on breasts, buttocks, or pelvic region, including poses that deliberately highlight these elements". This means any sort of content that deliberately does these would be against TOS. Now when we look at how the Hot Tub Meta we can see that it's unhealthy and unfair to the community. When I was looking through some of the streams a streamer called "Kaellyn" had their butt covering half the screen which I would assume is against TOS but nowadays it's hard to tell. Although the whole stream isn't just that it was obvious that she did to satisfy her chat. Another example is the popular streamer "Amouranth" who lets their viewers donate money to get their name written on many things the most common one being floaty. Just tuning into the chat for a few minutes I saw many twitch users send very questionable things such as "Show feet Kreygasm" "Show your booty" "Change bikini" and many more things. Constantly messages were being deleted by mods because they were either offensive or very ***. Another issue is the fact that it's clear that these streams are *** but the streamers don't even care to put the stream to mature just to get more people. This means that many kids can easily just go onto these streams and see big booba's. It's clear that this issue has gotten out of hand and that it needs to be stopped. My final thoughts are that although this stuff is "content" I don't think it's healthy or fair to the community and streamers to continue letting these streams go on. I think streamers should be able to be creative with their content as well. Hopefully twitch will something about this. Thank you for reading.
serait-il possible de ne pas avoir que des filles quasiment nues comme proposition sur twitch? jen aie marre, si elles veulent vendre leur corps, quelles aient sur pornhub. a un moment donner faut vous decider. twitch est un site pour adolescent et jeunes adultes ou un site *****? se nest pas etre **** de porter quelque chose qui couvre a peine leur poitrine, fesse et jen passe. je suis decue que twitch qui a la base etais un site amusant et utile se sois abaisser a ce niveau... c a tel point que jai vu des streameuses literalement dire qu'irl se sont des prostitues, decrire assez explicitement ce quelle font et se faire de la publicite sur twitch. de plus elles encouragent les femmes qui regarde leur stream a faire ce metier. je mattend au moins a une explication de la part de Twitch/Amazon sur la raison pour laquelle ils tolerent sa.
Por lo que veo los comentarios son similares, estamos cansados de de recomendado jacuzzis y piscinas, cuando debería estár prohibido, entiendo que en la mayoría de países el contenido sexual para menores de 16 es delito y no se observa un interés en la plataforma para impedir este tipo de transmisiónes..
i second with your concern and also the way you put it as something that needs to be stopped cause not only are they not doing any kind of content that is worth a wow factor they lack of any kind of talent that they've go live to just "chat" while only showing there body parts to get subs and bits very unprofessional
It's beyond out of hand at this point. Every day there's a hot tub or yoga streamer wearing bikini's with garters, which is lingerie; which is literally the equivalent of underwear. It's blatantly violating TOS yet nothing is done. I won't be allowing my children or nephews and nieces on the site until the sexual content is gone.
Bikinis in a hot tub or on a beach is okay, if they are sitting down in the hot tub and not standing up, up in the camera blatantly showing their assets. Restricting it to a certain age won't work either, because children are notorious for lying about their age on signups.
How is this even up for debate? The sexual content needs to go.
This doesn't belong on Twitch now, specially with you guys caving into the likes of Poki and other top streamers threatening to strike over the Gambling fiasco.
Especially after the VTuber tag fiasco and the ******** act too. If you want to clean up your sites reputation, this stuff needs to go. If Amazon (parent) wants to have something like that on a site, go make a different site exclusively made for that stuff.
It does not belong here in my eyes, or in the eyes of many who have been here for years!
It also doesn't help the fact I've seen this literally on the top of front page in the past without ever going into the section myself.
Any 13+ year old (or younger that shouldn't be on the site) could very easily be exposed to this kind of thing. And for those thinking oh he's one of THOSE kind of people, I'm not.
That **** belongs on PornHub, not Twitch
If we are to ban slot gambling then we should be getting rid of hot tub streaming and people who are almost completely naked for money
Not allowed to be on Twitch under 13? Just enter the Twitch url on any browser and here we go. You are in. It is not restricted at all! To be registered, to have an own account, is "restricted" people under 13...but you have just to say, that you are 13+ (or like 25) and that's it. You are in.
And 18+ is also not really a restriction. It is only a warning. "Take care, you could see or hear things for adults". And that's it.
And nowdays, they even not going into the hot tub in, so they just sitting around in bikini. And even worst...they do not appear on screen. Only if X amount of subs were dropped. So...most of the time, they are not even visible. Like a h oo ker. If you pay, I show myself.
not being funny but what the actual **** is twitch coming too with the entire hot tubs thing its disturbing that kids as young as 13 years old are allowed to be on twitch and have full access to watching women in bikinis doing whatever with wardrobe malfunctions and stuff then i just jump onto my account 10 minutes ago and see someone who was recommended too me to watch who clearly does that category of stream as there is a hot tub in the background but she has it down as just chatting and is fully naked above the waist with paint all over her. IT NEEDS TO STOP PLEASE REMOVE THE CATEGORY FOR GOOD!!!!!!!!!! i have reported the streamer like 5 minutes ago for it and hope they get banned for life. not being funny i am a streamer myself and have put 6 long years hard work into my channel and got practically nowhere and that category is not something us small streamers want to compete with as its not ******* fair if i sat with my top off on stream being a guy id get an instant ban for break TOS rules so stop breaking your own rules twitch sort it the **** out please!!!!!!!!!!
I agree with this. Please get rid of the whole thing entirely and make twitch not like this anymore. Have streamers have to make real content and not sell their bodies. Thank you. Also there are children on twitch! And you have Amourath or whatever her name is on this ******* platform and on your main page. Kids see that, you expose them to this ****. It’s not funny, it’s gross. Ban all streamers from the platform who do this and get rid of the category all together
The sub category of Hot Tub Pools and beaches is soft core **** remove it.
Stop hot tub fun time on twitch as a little streamers who are trying to get anywhere with it are streams cannot compete with girls that are in Bikinis or pools or stripping around on the ******* stripper pole where are we are just streaming gaming which what was twitch originally made for was for the gamers committee but you know since then they’ve opened up to other things like cooking and girls in bikinis dancing around wanting a **** where we can’t compete stop hot tub fun time or make it 18+ the bill access that
its literally softcore p*rn................. kids can just say theyre 18..... why does twitch want this so badly to be on their platform???
Twitch was a gaming streaming service that has gotten distracted with variety. Just talking for IRL streams should've been the limit of variety beyond games. It is wildly unsafe for kids coming to twitch to watch games when there is a vast amount of half naked girls being allowed to stream and flaunt their bodies on twitch. This is also wildly unfair to other creators with the lack of ability to do so. While twitch used to support creators by creating equality among them through ToS rules, now if you have a nice body and a hot tub and are female, youll dominate on twitch. This is literally softcore P*rn. This is wildly against what twitch used to be and stand for. Now we have half naked women licking their mics and placating to PRIMAL urges in males to watch naked women. This section needs to be removed immediately and people should again rely on genuine content for their streams, and not flaunting their bodies.
Basically the whole hot tub/pool streams need to stop. You're feeding into these people that are using their bodies to attract young men and women who are desperate to donate just so they see or hear their name. And while some may argue it 'empowers' young women it doesn't my friends and I literally sat on our streams just talking about it and how they're now being objectified because someone like Amouranth (or however you spell it) is in a bikini or stream or deep throating her microphone just to get clicks. I guarentee if I went on to your platform in a bikini and did that you'd ban me twitch but instead you encourage this horrible behaviour in your big streamers and even reward them. How many bans are some of these girls on now? 6 or 7? They should be kicked off the platform. Besides as horrible as it will sound, their onlyfans will support them more financially than twitch will.
Twitch has literally become softcore ****.
"Permanently ban every streamer that streams on twitch hot tubs that doesnt have their stream set as 18+"
This does not helps anything! Anybody who is able to click off the warning is in the stream in 1 sec. Only a more strickt registration (ID card, address, real name, phone number) could be the solution. And then if you are under 18, those mature streams will be not even listed for the kids.
And imagine...if the hot tub stream is not an adult content by Twitch, and not against the rules (not porn, not even soft porn), then it is ok that your 13 years old daughter do the same "content" on Twitch. Is it ok? What you think?
Permanently ban every streamer that streams on twitch hot tubs that doesnt have their stream set as 18+
Twitch is for Gamers and creative people. But with the Hot Tub section twitch goes the wrong way! Twitch should remove the section and BAN streams like this from this platform. This is not a **** platform and the people that are streaming this hot tub stuff should go to other platforms. It's unbelievable that this got a place here at our beloved gaming and creative platform!
"Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches" category has "*******" spelled incorrectly.
Why isn't twitch firing people left and right and hiring people who actually know how to handle this ****?
MEANWHILE PROPER TWITCH CREATORS GET BAD VIEWER COUNTERS.
I get you twitch you only want to stop our growing.
