Explicitr and Suffra also pitch themselves as Tumblr alternatives
The adult content ban compelled the concerned Tumblr users to hunt for its alternatives.
The tumblr ban wave going around makes me want to get a new site to post my art on. I haven't been hit yet, but I worry. Maybe I should finally update my furaffinity. But what about my non furry art? Man we need a site like tumblr that doesn't suck.

Nah, they’re just enacting a strict ban on all adult content, so I’m trying to find alternatives for that avenue. Though, I can’t imagine this will leave Tumblr with much of an audience. Plus, their automated content flagging system sucks.

The big ass issue with the Apple-Tumblr NSFW ban is not only the monopolization of popular apps but also how much it’s destroying mobile users. Almost all of the alternatives are mobile websites which simply aren’t exactly the EASIEST thing to work with on devices.

Considering the genuine number of affected users we created an exhaustive list of Tumblr alternatives in an effort to save them some botheration.
And now, adding to the existing list, we have stumbled upon a couple of more platforms that are also trying to court NSFW/adult/explicit artists and content creators planning to migrate from Tumblr.
The first in the list if Explicitr. Here’s what the site’s home page says:
Sick of the adult community getting the boot? So are we! That’s why we’re announcing Explicitr. Create your blog, share your content, follow others, enjoy for free. It’s that simple
The second platform – Suffra or Suffranet – isn’t even ready yet. However, here’s what their official website, suffra.net, says:
With Tumblr banning all NSFW content, Those communities will have nowhere to go. We plan to make our own niche platform specifically for those groups, providing what they need.
Furthermore, they add
We have plans to include our own custom commission system for artists, groups and tags for NSFW content to be found easier while also being hidden by people if wanted
