Community Guidelines

Welcome to the CultureCrush community, the #1 place to date the African Diaspora. If you’re honest, kind and respectful to others, you’ll fit right in and always be welcome here. If you choose not to be, you may not long on the platform. We created this space to allow users to express themselves freely as long as it doesn’t offend others. Everyone is held to the same standard on CultureCrush. We’re asking you to be considerate, think before you act, and abide by our community guidelines both on and offline. Please read that again, your offline behavior can lead to termination of your CultureCrush account.

Below is a list of our community policies. If you violate any of these policies, you might be banned from CultureCrush. We encourage you to report any behavior that violates our policies, and read our safety tips. 

CultureCrush is not for:

Nudity/Sexual Content

Please keep your profile content classy and appropriate for public consumption. No nudity, no sexually explicit content, and don’t chronicle all of your sexual desires in your bio – this is not the place for that. Keep it clean.


Do not engage, or encourage others to engage, in any targeted abuse or harassment against any other user. This includes sending any unsolicited sexual content to your matches. Reports of stalking, threats, bullying, or intimidation, are taken very seriously.

Violence and Physical Harm

We do not tolerate violent, graphic, or gory content on CultureCrush, or any actions or content that advocate for or threaten violence of any sort, including threatening or promoting terrorism. Physical assault, coercion, and any acts of violence are strictly prohibited.

Content that advocates for or glorifies suicide or self-harm is also not allowed either. In these situations, we may take a number of steps to assist the user, including reaching out with crisis resources.

Hate Speech

CultureCrush was created to be a safe space in particular for members of the African Diaspora and those who love them. Any content that promotes, advocates for, or condones racism, bigotry, hatred, or violence against individuals or groups based on factors like (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, disability, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity is not allowed.

Private Information

Don’t publicly broadcast any private information, yours or anyone else’s. This includes social security numbers, passports, passwords, financial information or unlisted contact information, such as phone numbers, email addresses, home/work address.


Don’t use CultureCrush to drive people to external websites via a link or otherwise. It’s annoying…and in some cases, illegal. 

Promotion or Solicitation

Soliciting other users is prohibited on CultureCrush. It’s fine to invite your matches to something that you’re doing, but if the purpose of your profile is to advertise your event or business, non-profit, political campaign, contest, or to conduct research, we may delete your account. While its wonderful that you’ve got an event planned for next week, please don’t use CultureCrush to promote it.

Prostitution and Trafficking

Promoting or advocating for commercial sexual services, human trafficking or other non-consensual sexual acts is strictly prohibited and will result in your account being banned from CultureCrush.


CultureCrush has a zero-tolerance policy on predatory behavior of any kind. Anyone attempting to get other users’ private information for fraudulent or illegal activity may be banned. Any user caught sharing their own financial account information for the purpose of receiving money from other users may also be banned from CultureCrush.


Be yourself! Don’t pretend to be someone else.

Do not impersonate, or otherwise misrepresent affiliation, connection or association with, any person or entity. This includes parody accounts. 


You must be 18 years of age or older to use CultureCrush. As such, we do not allow images of unaccompanied minors. If you want to post photos of your children, please make sure that you are in the photo as well. If you see a profile that includes an unaccompanied minor, encourages harm to a minor, or depicts a minor in a sexual or suggestive way, please report it immediately.

Copyright and Trademark Infringement

If it’s not yours, don’t post it. If your CultureCrush profile includes any work that is copyrighted or trademarked by others, don’t display it, unless you are allowed to do so.

Illegal Usage

Don’t use CultureCrush to do anything illegal. If it’s illegal IRL, it’s illegal on CultureCrush.

One Person, One Account

CultureCrush accounts cannot have multiple owners, so don’t create an account with your friend or significant other. Additionally, please don’t maintain multiple CultureCrush accounts. You can however add your friends on CultureCrush under the friends tab. 

Third Party Apps

The use of any apps created by anyone other than CultureCrush that claim to offer our service or unlock special CultureCrush features (like auto-swipers) is not allowed.

Account Dormancy

CultureCrush wants you to find love, so get serious about using the app regularly to meet your match. When you do meet someone you have 14 days to message them or the match may disappear. To decrease the chance of swiping on abandoned accounts please note that we often delete accounts after 2 years of inactivity.
