If you wish to be able to see the NC17 rated entries you need to be a member. We accept anyone over the age of consent, so in the UK this is 16 and in the US this is 18 etc. There are instructions of how to be approved for membership in the user profile of the comm:
Again we are not a closed comm that require anything weird for membership, just that you are of age for your region. This is because we have art on the comm which may be adult in nature and hence by LJ rules we have to prevent minors from seeing it.
Now is the time to join :).
