I saw that earlier, but right above that is a check box for every video that states "I certify that this video is not pornographic or obscene material". With that kind of language, it seems like an oxymoron. I guessing Googles' intent might not be for a porn tag but rather material that is too graphic for younger viewer (ie blood and gore)

More than anything, there's clips of runway models and video from Fashion TV that have been uploaded to this genre.

This video of the mature_adult genre definitely contains nudity.

Google sells the hi-quality video for $1.50. Not that I mind.

Haochi is right.... a friend of mine said me that, of course :-P

David, "hon(n)i soit qui mal y pense" = "shame upon him who thinks evil of it". Nobody use the verbe "hon(n)i" nowadays, but it's really a big big shame :)

It's :

Honni soit qui mal y pense

(two n at honni)

TOMHTML [PersonRank 10]

no, it's honi with one n because this sentence comes from old French. Nowadays there is two n ; only one n in the XIVth century ;-)

The saying "Honi soit qui mal y pense" is not french. It is a translation of a motto from a knighthood order in Britiain (The Noble Order of the Garter be precise). And yes, there is only one N in "honi".

Check your facts before posting.

Of course it's (old) French. Maybe you should learn some French before posting.

You can find it on this list: en.wikiquote.org/wiki/French_p ...

   * Honni soit qui mal y pense.
   o Idiomatic translation: Evil be to him who evil thinks.
   o Literal meaning: Shameful be they who thinks badly of it.

(modern French writes honni instead of Old French honi)

So what's the final word on this? Adult/Mature is for what? Videos containing nudity but not with intent to arouse?
