XXX Pottery – Hot Stuff Coming Through

I was quietly enjoying my Sunday evening and I got to thinking, maybe I should use the ad credit that Facebook graciously gave me to seduce me into a lifetime of advertising campaigns with them.

I figured why not give it a try?

My Facebook page could stand with a little more exposure and many successful pairings begin with an act of generosity.

Could it be destiny?

I decided upon the parameters of my ad, threw a few pictures together, wrote a tagline, and submitted my overture into the hands of my new suitors from Facebook.

Apparently I did something very inappropriate:


Was I to join the ranks of censored artists?

I did not realize my pottery was so provocative!ย  (At least for the bots at Facebook.) I did not even include the image in the banner of my vase, “Make it Work”, which loosely resembles a dress form.

Dare I ask the question?

What do you think the Facebook’s bots found so titillating about this image?ย  Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ˜‰


Update:ย  Upon appeal the image was approved.

I think I was just a little sad my pottery was no longer considered ‘adult products or services, such as sex toys, sexual enhancement products, …”.

I thought I had discovered a new market.

Lots of Love,

The Dirty Alchemist

Social Sundays, where on some Sundays (okay the ones I feel like), I share my latest adventures as an artist trying to navigate social media as I think about throwing a pot.


  1. Not sure about Facebook and it’s logic. I definitely would not have taken the images as adult products. But after reading your post, I took a second look at them and now I can understand where the Facebook bots are coming from. It’s all about how you want to see them ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Sometimes I am not sure that Facebook and logic go together in the same sentence! I had similar thoughts to you! Facebook bots must be lonely ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I have a few ideas why the bots could have flagged this. But it’s obvious those bots are lonely and have dirty minds. LOL
