We hope you've all been enjoying the new upgrades to the site!  With updates come an updated draft of the site rules, which are essentially the same as they've always been, but always bear repeating.  Please note these may change at any time based on the needs of the site and its members.

Safety is our number one priority, but not something we can ever guarantee.  Please don't be afraid to reach out to the moderators with any suggestions or for help if you feel your safety is in jeopardy (related to the site).

  • THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE.  Any posts or profiles suggestive of searching for dates will be subject to edits or removal, and members may be warned, placed on moderator review, or banned from the site.
  • This is a women-only site.  Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome here, including members of the trans community.  Only one person per account, and only one active account per person.  Any member we suspect of being a man or couple will be banned without warning.
  • Discrimination will not be tolerated.  We aim to keep this site safe for ALL members, regardless of sexual identity, race, ethnicity, religion, location, etc.  This is an international site with women from all over the world, and we welcome different perspectives and experiences on our posts.
  • If you are new to the site, please sift through the forums a bit to get a sense of our culture before making a lot of posts, especially explicit or personal ones.  We welcome you to join in and obtain the support you need, but it is always wise to understand a site and its culture before diving in.  If it is suspected that you are here for reasons other than support and/or contributing to the culture in a productive and meaningful way, you may be warned, placed on moderator review for closer observation, or banned from the site.
  • Do not send personal messages to other members until you two have built a rapport.  Unsolicited personal messages or soliciting random personal messages in Chatbox may lead to warnings or banning from the site.
  • Posts clearly made to incite negativity, drama, or arguments may lead to warnings and potential banning.  We welcome lively discussions of hot topics, and people are welcome to post productive arguments in disagreement as appropriate.  However, name-calling, bullying and the like will not be tolerated.  Members have a right to feel safe to post.  In doing so, all members need to be cognizant that all members may not agree with their perspective, but responses should be done constructively and respectfully.
  • Please keep posts, comments, etc. in English so that we are all able to enjoy your contributions.
  • We do not delete profiles or change profile names.  Moderators do not have the capability to do so.  If you need your profile name changed for safety reasons, our site admin, @la-femme is the only one who can make said change, at her discrimination.  Additionally, she is a human being with a life outside of this site, and when she is here, she is often busy with site updates and admin duties.  Do not take it personally if she does not respond promptly.
  • Short posts made simply to increase one's post count ("Yes" "Agree" "Good point" "Thank you") may lead to moderator review, warnings or banning.  Use the "reputation" button to show your agreement or appreciation if you don't have anything more to say.
  • The Naughty Forum is still under construction.  We WILL make it known when access is made available again.  Please be aware that access is NOT a right, but a privilege of the site.  At MINIMUM, you must have 200 posts (see above rule) AND 60 days on the site.  Requests for access, once it is made available, may be sent to any moderator (please contact a moderator and NOT the site admin).
  • Use caution with external links.  Articles are generally acceptable, but links to your blog, website, businesses, porn sites and the like will be removed and members may be warned or banned.
  • Any photos posted in the general forums, including avatars, must be PG-13 or "friendlier".  Nudity is not allowed in the main forums.  Do not include photos you do not have permission to post or photos including children, including your own.  Photos may be moderated as necessary, and members may be warned or banned.
  • Avoid using real names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and the like in posts.  These may be moderated as necessary.
  • Please keep replies to posts on-topic.  Threads that stray may be locked to new responses or edited to stay on-topic.  We welcome you to create a new thread if a post inspires you to do so, which often happens in discussions.  Feel free to link the original inspiring post if you so choose.
  • Sexual stories and discussions should be kept to the sex forums, which are slightly more protected than the general forums.  Explicit details are fine (welcomed!).  Stories depicting illegal activities or identifying individuals will be edited or removed, and the member warned or banned.
  • Keep in mind that this site, your screen name and your site content are searchable on Google and other search engines.  Take proper precautions to protect yourself, as nothing on the internet, including in the Naughty Forum, is immune to abuse by ill-intended parties.  Again, we aim to keep this site safe, but this is never a guarantee.
  • The moderators and admin reserve the right to place any member on moderator review at our discretion.  Please do not take offense, but rather, review the site rules and other posts within this forum to ensure you stay within the site guidelines in the future.  This is done in the interest of protecting our site members.
  • Please feel free to report any activity, including but not limited to, personal messages, posts, and comments, if you suspect they may be against the site terms or they make you uncomfortable.  Members are not penalized for being reported unless a moderator determines the report to be valid, so don't be afraid if you are unsure.  Only moderators are privy to reports made.

If there are any questions regarding the rules, or you have any suggestions, we welcome your input and feedback.  Our goal is to keep this a fun and safe place for support.

Fantastic post @BiTriMama. This was definitely something we needed. Thank you for taking the time to write this. If I can think of anything to add I'll be sure to say so but this pretty much covers all I can think of :)

I keep thinking of edits to make!  LOL  I'm sure stuff will keep coming up, but hopefully this is a good outline for the most part.

I'm glad you found it helpful!  Check out some of the other posts in this forum for more guidance.  You'll learn some little tricks and tips!  So long as you stick to the rules (most do, but there are always some who don't), you'll be fine. :)

Thank you.  That is one this I like is to follow rules and not upset anyone or anything.  It is important when you are new to a website to learn from Moderators and members.  Well, going back to work.  Have a good day!

May we just add in that anyone joining the site and immediatley starting PM's or looking for dates, meets, etc, will be banned with no further discussion. THIS IS NOT A DATING site and if you are not willing to notice the advice then there will be consequences. We will not tolerate members being harrassed or hassled for PM's from people we know nothing about

Agreed. Too many of our members are being bothered and upset by new members jumping into pms for whatever reason. Hopefully our admin can return us back to the 50 posts rule but if not, or at least in the meantime, it would be a good rule to have. No one new should have a reason to PM anyone but a mod for help. Thanks lilac.

It's just not on is it? @la-femme and members have built a community based on trust and respect here at Shybi. I feel sorry for anyone who has been hassled. I used to hate entering certain chat rooms on IRC because you got jumped on with a/s/l? NOT here! 99% were men too, masquerading as women, so it is no great loss. We need to let members know we are doing our best to protect them and this is one way until the minimum post rule returns
