Amouranth talks about the possibility of underage streamers doing hot tub streams

Amouranth recently tweeted on her private account about the messy situation involving hot tub streams. She mentioned that viewers and creators shouldn’t use this possibility as a litmus test because it’s ‘ridiculous’. She noted that there are a lot of different settings that could be inappropriate for underage creators. Along with that, she even gave examples of such hypothetical situations which could be deemed sexual and inappropriate for a young streamer.

She stated that it could be quite awkward for a teenage streamer to be part of a podcast that might involve some sexual conversations. Other than that, she also believed that viewers might also take issue if the underage creator ever chilled around with their significant other live on stream.

Amouranth continued by asking an important point of whether the platform should ban sexual jokes or innuendos because it was inappropriate for an underage creator. Along with that, she also talked about other situations that could also be problematic if teenage streamers were involved.

She mentioned that it would be weird to see any dating advertisements on streams of these underage creators. Amouranth also pointed out that fans would be outraged if these streamers got drunk or smoked on their livestream. Finally, she also noted that it would also be awkward to see them play GTA RP, where they might find a lot of sexual innuendos as well.

It’s clear to see how problematic it would be if teenage streamers became involved in such situations. Amouranth believed that hot tub streams fell into the same category of content. She explained that it would be hard to justify a ban for hot tub streams if Twitch allowed other sexual innuendos on their platform. She also pointed out that there are no measures to prevent their streams from having any adult advertisements.
