NSFW 18 + Adult Themed Website

Hi!  We run an adult themed website and retail companies.  I was told this was not allowed here.  We really enjoy upwork and the community.  Is there any method to age verify our freelancers and our company?  We absolutely will take all steps to not harm of offend anyone.  We have a legitimate company and need help.  If this is just not allowed, that is 100% understandable, we can search else where 🙂  But really love the freelancers, support and people here.  So before removing account, I thought I would ask here - You guys are smart.  We are NOT requesting pornographic material. However, the website deals with sex/sexuality and toys/product.  To understand the project might require looking at adult material.

We were looking for a full e-commerce solution.  Thank you very much.

I did (chat with someone for a minute)... and this(initial post) is just clarification. I figured it was a general discussion with community members.  I thought I saw information that UpWork allowed for age verification.  I am really new to posting for this type of job and usually use other freelance platforms.  So, I asked the question here to see what others had to say.  

I guess, what you are telling me is:  Upwork simply does not allow jobs requests from Companies that manufacture & sell adult oriented product. I do not have a copy of it.  But I was just told the job I listed was not allowed, I was never given specific information why.  My assumption was because it was 18 + but it was never directly answered.  I am 100% find with following policy & have no complaint. I just assumed I could speak with others here or hear opinions of the community.

Understand 100% - really great/quick answer.  I put up and am hiring for a new position, which meets those requirements.   I want to be a person who contributes to and helps 'the community', not that guy who breaks the rules.

Thank you!
