Is there a demand for an NSFW-only Tumblr alternative, or was it the mix of content that made Tumblr popular?

I mean personally I think if e.g. pornhub were to launch a product like that, they should make sure that it's not associated with PH or pornography directly. That creates a stigma - "oh, it's that porn blog" - which in my outsider's perspective was never Tumblr's identity.

Anecdotally, the only people I know that used tumblr used it exclusively for porn, lewds, kinks, etc.
