The adult content ban compelled the concerned Tumblr users to hunt for its alternatives.

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.

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
