What works are allowed?

Smutty Horse welcomes uploading all works, as long as the work is legal in the United States and you have the legal right to publish the work on our service.

As an exception to this policy to prevent abuse, we do not allow malware on our service. Any malware that could be used to infect other computers may be removed from our service at our discretion.
