Galatea has introduced age ratings to help restrict more mature content from those under the age of 18. Currently, the age rating system can be broken down into two separate categories: 16+ and 18+
16+ Age Rating
Stories that fall under this age rating may be appropriate for anyone 16 years of age or older. Stories may contain non-explicit suggestive adult themes, references to some violence, or coarse language, but do not include more mature topics such as explicit sex.
If you choose "Under 18" during onboarding or in your profile settings, these are the only books that will appear in the app.
18+ Age Rating
Stories that fall under this age rating are intended for adults. These stories explore a variety of adult themes including but not limited to explicit sex and violence.
These stories will only appear in-app if your age is set to "18 or over" during onboarding, or from your profile settings.
