Google has added a new line to its prohibited & restricted content Google Maps policies under the "adult-themed content" section that is more receptive to adult content.

The new line reads, "We may allow a legitimate business website that contains adult-themed content if the business provides relevant adult services."

It seems to me that Google will allow some adult service businesses that have adult-themed content on their websites to be listed on Google Maps.
