See/read 1984, elimination of words makes the concept go away. No longer is BAD a word, it is simply NOT GOOD! Therefore bad is non existent...and no longer a concept...
Then again, as we have seen over and over, it is typically the elite minority screaming the loudest to censor, control and limit our choices in music, video, and political correctness.
I think a toggle would have been better than complete elimination.

Oh please. Why Apple start to care about this content now. Some apps on the store should never been approved in the first place.

This is bad news. Once they go down this road it becomes harder to draw a line between what is considered sexual and what is not. Any game with a photo of a girl can be considered sexual in certain countries. Aera is a flying game that contains pictures of pinup girls along the sides of planes. That can be considered sexual by certain people. The SI Swimsuit app contains videos of naked models with body paint and can be considered sexual by lots of people. The UFC app contains their octagon girls which can be considered sexual. Even the Dallas Cowboys have an app with a section for their cheerleaders. That is sexual too.
Where do they draw the line? This is a very slippery slope Apple is going down especially since they have a built in restrictions setting (with password) that adults can set for their children. This is just people being lazy and wanting a big corporation to parent their children. Pathetic."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

I'm all for pr0n, but honestly - all those "image gallery" type apps are really just an annoyance. Someone can sync real pr0n into their photo/video gallery if they want. Pity about more 'creative' apps like iWobble though...

@armored. Dude I'm a Christian born and raised myself, and porn apps in the app store doesn't affect/offend me one bit. I don't need em, but I'm not gonna bible beat anyone else into not enjoying them if they so choose. Worry about ur own soul before you worry about someone elses.

I could careless, just people trying to make a buck. Just remember no one makes you download them. If your that concerned about having porn on your iphone, I'm pretty sure there are streaming sites up for the phone by now. I don't believe the app store should be censored! Why doesn't apple have a 18+ selection, I'm pretty sure there's alot of money to be made if indeed porn was allowed in the app store $$$$!!!

I just find it amusing that out of four pages of discussion regarding Apple's censorship of "overtly sexual" apps on the App Store, 99% of the people who argue in favour of the ban only do so on the grounds that the apps in question are pure crap, and not because they are morally questionable and/or offensive.
It's called quality control, Apple. If they actually focused their energy on reviewing quality instead of content, browsing the App Store would be a better experience for everyone. People don't like being told what they can and can't do. People aren't stupid. If they want sex and nudity, they'll get it, and furthermore, people are fully-aware that their kids probably know more about how to find it on the internet than they do. Porn is everywhere. Get over it. Sure, you can ban it from the App Store, but do you really think that's going to stop little Johnny from finding it elsewhere? Why bother wasting time and money on such a futile exercise?
Like people keep saying, have a toggle (or even a completely separate adult app store) for "questionable" content with a strict age varification process and a dedicated team to monitor legality issues, and it's done. People who want it can get it, people who don't want it can't/won't find it, and then you can focus your energies on proper, effective quality control of submitted apps, thus eliminating the drivel from the main app store and ensuring that inappropriate material doesn't find it's way in there.

If i wanna download or pay for any app, including sexually explicit 1s, then i will do. as long as there is a sufficient warning so under 18s cant download them, i dont see the problem. Yet another way a large corporation tries telling me what to do. "SphUCK" m all

Looks like Apple has created an "explicit" category in the App Store for these apps to eventually go in to:
AppleInsider | Apple creates 'explicit' category for App Store software21.5" iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 l 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 l 17" PowerBook 1.67 GHz
