BigDog Accidentally Twitches Porn, Gets Banned

Ever since Twitch changed its Terms of Service to allow gambling-related streams, an ever-growing number of players have been streaming their online poker sessions. Although this is a great learning tool as well as a way for mid-stakes players to generate some attention for themselves, it’s not without its dangers. Whatever is on-screen or on-camera is being broadcast to the world while the stream is active, so forgetting to stop the stream, or forgetting what you have open on your desktop or sitting in the background of the shot can have any number of potential consequences.

Earlier this year, we saw Charlie “Epiphany77″ Carrel get hacked live on the air because he forgot to close a TeamViewer window which he was using to coordinate with his coach, Evan “Gripsed” Jarvis. Now, Twitch’s latest victim is online coach and high stakes MTT player Casey “bigdogpckt5s” Jarzabek, who decided to release the stress of yesterday’s poker session with a little bit of pornography. Unfortunately for him, he forgot to stop the stream before doing so, unintentionally letting his fans know a little more about his personal life than he – or they – might have wanted.

Jarzabek has maintained a sense of humor about the situation, pointing out that it was clearly an accident and that it should shock no one that he likes porn. Twitch is taking the matter more seriously, having banned his account for Terms of Service violation. Jarzabek’s fans, meanwhile, have taken to Twitter with the #FreeBigDog hashtag, hoping to pressure Twitch into reactivating his account.

I would rate Jarzabek’s odds of getting his account back as higher if he’d been watching run-of-the-mill mainstream porn, but although I don’t know the exact content of what he streamed, a few comments on Twitter suggest that it was something towards the darker end of kinky.

Everyone has their sexual quirks, and it’s hard to fault a guy for an honest mistake regardless of his tastes. Sadly, though, kinky sex and pornography have had a long and complicated relationship with the law in most jurisdictions, which may in turn complicate matters for Twitch. If what got streamed was illegal for some of his viewers to see, that may be enough for them to decide to keep him off the air.
