Eros Island will not tolerate underage access to this site. There are dozens of virtual worlds and websites targeting the teen/tween market, this is NOT one of them. This site includes virtual pre-dating where adults on the dating scene come here to get to know each other first, prior to going on an actual date. This and other aspects of our virtual world has made us restrict the site as some of the content is meant for mature audiences and  is not age appropriate for minors. Our world is comprised of VERYfied™ users that wish to associate with persons who they know are real people who are adults. All Members of Eros Island will be checked through the VERYfy™, the premier age and gender verification system, and certified to be over the age of 18. Eros Island will use any other means necessary used to confirm users are over 18 as well, and we strictly enforce our “when in doubt, don’t allow access” policy.
