The brand Svakom is the latest victim of sex-positive content censorship, with its @svakomusa account being shut down by Instagram. Unfortunately, this is a common practice on Instagram, and Svakom is just another victim among big brands like @wevibe and @womanizer.
Just recently Svakom celebrated its 3 nominations for the 2022 XBIZ Awards, including Luxury Brand of the Year, and now it has to contend with censorship of its content on Instagram. In a statement, the company said:
“We believe sex is an essential part of everybody’s life. Svakom Instagram aims to be a sex-positive and inclusive platform. As a result, we can build a strong sense of community, a safe space to learn about sex education, ask for advice, and gather inspiration.
Instagram keeps disabling sex- and pleasure-positive accounts and justifies their actions by claiming a violation of their terms. Nevertheless, the account remains disabled, and the brand is rallying support from the industry.
Svakom will be joining the campaign #UnmutePleasure initiated by WeVibe, and we kindly ask for your assistance by sharing this post and tagging INSTAGRAM – help us continue to grow and connect with people which share our voice.
If you further want to help recover Svakom’s Instagram account, Click on your Instagram ‘Settings’, click on ‘Help‘ and ‘Report a problem‘ in ‘General Feedback‘, in the text box write: ‘PLEASE REACTIVATE @SVAKOMUSA ON INSTAGRAM‘”
WeVibe and Womanizer got their accounts back thanks to the help of their fans, now Svakom is counting on your help!
