    I actually mentioned this a while ago but was informed the adverts were fine. Like retro_turtles said it must be due to the sponsored featured article that Love Honey did.

    I also just disabled my adblock just to see if this was true. It's been about an hour and nothing other than university adverts came up and how Nadia 'hated the campus' until these just popped up while I was browsing a thread :holmes:

    And although I do love a good bargain, is TSR really the best place for me to be finding this seasonally appropriate deal? :beard:

    Why are you forcing me to look at inappropriate advertisements when browsing TSR? And before someone says it , the advertisement I'm talking about isn't an adchoices one so no it isn't based on browsing history or search terms. I'm sure there are plenty of really young people on here too who shouldn't have to see ads like that.
    Hi Echo00. LoveHoney ads will only appear on accounts register 18+ and only appear on non-education forums, eg relationships or sexual health.
    LoveHoney is a site that promotes safe sex and healthy relationships and as some users have highlighted, they provided us with a sponsored article about how to empower you sex life. It is not a porn site and the ad banners, in our view, are not sexually explicit. I hope this clear things up for you

    No joke but web "cookies" save information about the stuff you looked for earlier on other pages.

    I've just switched off adblock for a sec to see what's going on, I've just got adverts for phones and phone contracts. Before I had adblock on all the time I was getting lots of adverts for women's clothing, which was a bit weird as a guy.

    What are these "innapropriate" ones tho? I want those ones

    Edit: Immediately after leaving the thread I got two adverts trying to sell me sex toys. 2 for £25, what a deal!

    I know. I've also noted that adblock doesn't seem to work on incognito mode so with that combination...hmmmmm

    So is it you people or my internet history doing it?

    I'm not 18+ and my TSR account doesn't say I'm 18+ either. :/
