No-Fun Google Bans Porn from Glass

Hot on the heels of the release of the first-ever porn app for Google Glass, cleverly titled Tits and Glass, comes the news that the boner-killing Internet giant has decided to ban porn completely from the wearable device. That means no sexy hands-free videos will be streaming to your face computer any time soon.

CNN reports that Google slyly updated its developer policy to ban explicit content from appearing in Glass apps. The new rule reads:

We don’t allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Google has a zero-tolerance policy against child pornography. If we become aware of content with child pornography, we will report it to the appropriate authorities and delete the Google Accounts of those involved with the distribution.

Sounds rather Apple-like, wouldn’t you say?

Mikandi, the developers of Tits and Glass, seem to be taking it all in stride. “Although the app is still live and people are using it, at this point we must make changes to the app in order to comply with the new policies,” Mikandi CEO Jesse Adams wrote in a blog post. “Expect to see changes to the application tomorrow.”

Just don’t change the app name, okay?
