In order to keep streams about the games, Twitch has made a change to their Rules of Conduct, prohibiting people from wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing during their streams. This is occurring nearly a year after the PlayStation 4 launched and people used The PlayRoom to showcase lewd acts.

Twitch made the announcement about the changes through an update to their Rules of Conduct today:

Dress…appropriately

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

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.”

*If it’s unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (guys) or a bikini top (grills), then just crop the webcam to your face. Problem solved.

We sell t-shirts, and those are always acceptable. #Kappa

When Polygon reached out to Twitch about the change, a rep said, “We wanted to clarify the ages old question of dress code.”
