Twitch: cover it up, lads

Twitch does not want to see your half-naked body during streams.


Twitch has introduced a new set of rules of conduct which specifically require you to keep your top on.

“Nerds are sexy, and you’re all magnificent, beautiful creatures, but let’s try and keep this about the games, shall we?” Twitch wrote.

“Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing – including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments – is prohibited, as well as any full nude torsos, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that’s better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting ‘Playing with the Boys.'”

Twitch notes that if it’s “unbearably hot” so you absolutely must be semi- or totally naked, you should crop your webcam to your face.

The rest of the rules are pretty par for the course – stuff like no illegal activities, no self harm, no non-gaming content – but we expect this ban on nipples to be the main point of discussion. Cover your milk duds, dudes.
