Hiding the sex topic?

(15 Posts)

At the risk of being accused of being a prude, is there any support for hiding threads started in the Sex topic from trending/active? I've thought this before but the repeated appearance of 'Fisting' in Active is reinforcing this even more. I know we don't have to open the thread but even the word is a bit much for me! On the other hand I can see it might lead people to post more sex stuff in Chat for traffic...

You can hide the topic if you go to customise.

It keeps shocking me too!

Yes you can hide whole topics and I would urge you to do so forthwith

On my phone I seem to be able to hide threads but not topics. Will try on a desktop, thanks kelda <fiddles with settings while clutching pearls>

Yes you can hide it on the laptop. Maybe I've hidden it? I never see anything like that in Active.

'You can opt never to see certain topics in Active Conversations or opt in to see the Special Needs topic (which otherwise does not display). To manage these options (and your list of hidden threads, if you have any), go here (but do save first if you have made other changes on this page).'

The sex topic has now been banished from my active, hurrah. No more fisting or pearl necklaces. Thanks for the tips!

Yy Maryz. I'm an embittered infertile and so ironically as well as hiding sex I've now also hidden conception/pregnancy/childbirth etc. Would be great not to see topics I'd rather avoid in Trending as well as active (although obviously there will always be some threads about babies here as its Mumsnet not Infertilesnet and that's clearly fine smile).
