ABOUT MY SOCIAL MEDIA
I use social media primarily for art and promotion of various projects. I generally do not post explicit NSFW publicly, but much of my work is for mature audiences. Additionally, there is NSFW in my Likes, and I will occasionally post nude life drawings.
Please do not read or follow any of my social media accounts if you are under 18 or upset by adult content.
I do not have pronouns listed in my bio because my work and gender have no correlation, and I prefer that they remain separate. Any pronouns are fine for referring to me.
For my safety as a queer artist creating mature work, I block users who harass, threaten, or defame creators, are openly hateful, and who approach in obvious bad faith. If a user is especially malicious, I use a Chrome plugin to mass-block all of their mutuals as well. I am aware that this inevitably catches uninvolved bystanders in the net.
As a courtesy, I try to block minors and those upset by adult content. I also block corporate accounts and advertisers.
My DMs are mutuals-only and my notifs hide replies from new and burner accounts.
Please understand that blocks and other boundaries are not personal; they are for my safety and well-being.
If you need to reach me, other methods of contact are linked in the icons at the top of this page.
I have a locked Twitter for NSFW art at @Lakuretoria; personal acquaintances and/or other NSFW artists only please.
