Online writing communities that tolerate taboo, obscene, sexual stuff?

I'm looking for an online writing community where I can post fiction and non-fiction (articles, musings), and where there is a "friending" (social network) mechanism and a critique/feedback mechanism. And, I'm hoping to meet a some additional criteria, including types of content.

And I'd like to be able to link back to my own site and do whatever I want with my profile. And I would like to be able to write about taboo, violent, obscene, and sexual stuff without getting banned without warning. And, of course, I'd like to still own everything I write.
Does anyone know of such sites? I would pay a monthly fee if there's a bit of a community already.
Should I just settle down on Fetlife, even though there isn't a critique mechanism? (Actually, Fetlife has banned all mention of some topics I'd like to write about, but it might be the best I can do.)
Should I just pick something like tumblr and start reading and commenting on other people's blogs and ease into a community that way?
Or should I censor myself and join something like Scribophile? Has anyone had good experiences over time with sites like this?
Basically I'd like to be able to write about whatever I want and increase my chances of ending up with a few online writing friends, skimping on some of the criteria above, if necessary.
