Can the red text that explains what 'adult' means, be made larger (pref. in bold) when setting up a casting as some people are still not seeing it and understanding what it means.

Perhaps having a gap below the adult/non-adult radio buttons where this appears rather than putting it to one side.
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

You could write it in flashing neon and make it take up the whole screen and some people still wouldn't see or understand it.

I understand that some people don't have 'adult' on their profile, as it's something they only do now and again.

But I suspect that a person who hasn't ticked topless, nude or fetish really isn't going to wake up one morning and cast for an 'adult' shoot. Perhaps the adult casting tickbox shouldn't even be available for them to select.

I posted this after seeing someone wanting some TF? engagement pictures of themselves with their boyfriend (outdoor ones, happy couple shots) and it was flagged as 'adult'. Clearly this wasn't an adult shoot but you still see this happen from time to time in castings where the theme of said casting is completely harmless so it's not obvious to everyone what 'adult' actually means.

I think people, particularly "newbies", assume "adult" just means the person or people in the shots will be grown ups.

I think thats probably correct.

I don't think there is anything the site can do though, making the letters bigger won't change the fact that people see and interpret things in the way it suits them.

As long as everybody is ultimately clear as to whats expected from a shoot there is no real issue.
I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

I cant even begin to imagine the lack of intelligence that would accompany such an assumption. To see things like Topless, Glamour, Fetish and then Adult and to think Adult, in that list, meant they are all grown ups.

Someone like that... I'd be concerned they'd have problems walking and breathing at the same time.

Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

Oh, I can!  surprise

Perhaps "Adult" should simply be replaced by "Porn" ? laugh

If you make a casting call for a fetish genre, you're required by the rules to tick the Adult flag, even if the shoot is fully clothed and has no "Adult" content.

As a result, nearly all my castings have had the "Adult" flag, and to clarify matters I often add "This is NOT an Adult shoot" in the title.

I don't have "Adult" selected in my list of work genres on my profile, because I'm not seeking models for "Adult" shoots as generally udnerstood (and fairly clearly defined) here.
