We want Lovesail to be a safe and unthreatening place to meet like-minded sailing friends.  Please allow us to do this by being respectful of other members.  Whilst we are primarily a dating site we do have members just here for friendships and crewing opportunities.  Racier photo uploads can be sent via the private message facility if the recipient has agreed.  We all have different levels of sensibility, what one person might think is an acceptable image another could find offensive.
