Your ad is approved to run as adult

Hi, this is the first time I got this "approval" and I don't understand why. Is it because I have the word "breast" in my domain name?

 

Can anyone recommend how to get around my issue?

 

Thanks.

Nope; the issue -in my opinion- is with the picture on the landing page.
A side note: this landing page also has other violations (e.g. Information harvesting..)

Hello,

 

There are different policies which AdWords has framed to take care of which type of website can be advertised. 

 

Adult related policy varies from country to country and I would suggest reading this policy and see how it impacts you being the advertiser: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6023699

 

Here are more details of when AdWords give the ad status of Approved (Adult): https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/118297?hl=en

Thanks, read it. I find it weird that bikini image is considered "nudity or reference to a sexual activity"
What I don't understand is, at what point then my ads will be shown? If i google now "breast augmentation in thailand" it won't show up at all. But If my ads show up only to people looking for "breast porn" , then it's better to have no ads at all.

I had a computer graphics video showing nipples. Apparently the policy applies to humans and computer generated humans both.

OK; thanks for updating,
My advice: check your site to verify compliance with all other sections of the Policy.
