This Tumblr hack makes it super easy to search for porn on your phone

Jasmine Andersson February 6, 2018

Tumblr porn, gay porn Tumblr, lesbian porn Tumblr, porn Tumblr. They’re the four searches made feverishly across the world in a search for some NSFW content on Tumblr.

But in recent times, those looking for straight, gay or lesbian porn on Tumblr on their phones have struggled to access the content unless they’re on a laptop on their website.

However, iPhone users can soon celebrate as there’s a simple hack in the updated version of the blogging site that means you can see Tumblr gay porn on the comfort of your mobile.

Why do people go to Tumblr for porn? 

Microblogging and social networking website Tumblr formed in 2007. The website, which allows users to post multimedia content to their platform as well as reblog other people’s content.

Although the site boasts several different areas of expertise, its main driver is in fact Tumblr porn.

According to Tech Crunch, “adult” content is the top category that drives direct clicks to Tumblr’s desktop site, accounting for 20.53 percent of clicks.

That’s why Tumblr’s battle with Apple to enable accessible porn on its phone app is so important to the website’s success.

And on porn Tumblr, it isn’t your standard videographic fare that tends to appear – GIFs, art, and still images tend to be popular on the site.

Although Tumblr boasts a lax policy with uploading adult content, it asks users to not host sexually explicit videos on its website – but they are able to embed. Tumblr doesn’t actively police its content – relying instead upon users to report violations to its rules. As you can imagine this doesn’t deter users from uploading porn to Tumblr.

Why has it been so difficult to get porn on an iPhone?

Apple considers itself to be a family brand, with Steve Jobs once famously stating that if users wanted to get porn on their phone, they should get an Android.

Apple has never permitted explicit apps whose sole purpose is to serve pornography, but does allow social media websites to have not safe for work content filters, but Tumblr has generally found a way around those rules.

Tumblr has had to filter out and hide this content in its iOS app by default, which has to be accessed by turning on “safe mode” in the application’s settings – and has to be done every time a user is up for a perusal.

And the million dollar question: how do we access gay porn on Tumblr?

So in the latest version of the app, accessing gay and lesbian porn on Tumblr has never been easier.

On there, in the bottom reaches of the screen, the safe search toggle that was despised by all is now long gone.

By clicking on Tumbr’s “safe mode” settings, you will be directed to a screen which will ask what search results you would like to be hidden.

Then you can select “don’t hide anything” on the following screen, which will allow users will be able to access to pornographic content of their dreams.

Et voila! That’s how you get to access gay porn, lesbian porn or if you want, straight porn on Tumblr on an iPhone.
