With the anatomical and thanatological themes of this blog, it is inevitable that some of the content will depict images and descriptions of human and animal bodies. These policies lay out the extent and limitations of this type of content within the website.

Graphic Content Policy
Nudity Policy

Graphic Content Policy

This blog may contain images (photographic or illustration) or videos which some may find distressing or offensive. This includes, but is not limited to, gross anatomical structures, dissections, cadaveric material or surgical and embalming procedures.

A great deal of thought has been put into how to deal with this type of content. Although we thoroughly believe that educational material should not be censored. this must be balanced with the need to protect the individual users of this website. As such, no material which is covered by the policy will be shown in the main landing page nor will it be used in the thumbnail added to links on social media.

Within the page of the particular post, any graphic material will be obscured until the user makes a positive choice to reveal the content.

Any applicable content will only be published with the appropriate permissions and compliance with relevant legislation.

Nudity Policy

This blog may contain images (photographic or illustration) or videos depicting the naked human body. We strongly believe that the human form should never be arbitrarily censored, and we strongly advocate body positivity. As such, no censorship will be applied to this material.

Any nudity depicted on this website will only be for educational or artistic purposes. No material whose sole intended purpose is sexual arousal, will be allowed (i.e. pornography).

However, these images will not be included in the thumbnail added to links on social media, in order to comply with their policies.


These policies may be amended at any time.
