Following a string of similar bans over the last few weeks for showing questionable content, one Twitch channel took it upon themselves to up the ante by streaming hardcore porn. 

The most recent ban isn't the first for this particular streamer, as they seem to have turn the whole situation into a game to see how long they can stream porn before getting banned. 

The latest attempt, this time under the name 'forsaaaanpepegaa,' only lasted for about 10 minutes before Twitch finally caught wind of it and banned the channel. 

In the (EXTREMELY NSFW) clip, the stream has been keeping a close watch on their viewers over the various attempts, compiling them into a counter in the bottom of the screen. 

According to the counter, they had been banned 493 (now 494 times) and managed to rack up a concurrent viewership of over 8,000 during one attempt. 

While it's not known what the exact maximum was during the January 25 stream, one user on Reddit says it had at least 6,000 people watching. 

It also looks as though Twitch might have been tipped off on the existence of the stream since esports consultant Rod 'Slasher' Breslau mentioned it on Twitter. 

In a follow-up Tweet, Slasher even goes as far to say that the Twitch stream as "still better than watching [the GOATs] meta in Overwatch."

This latest instance of controversial content on Twitch is certainly the most egregious but also happens to be a somewhat natural progression given the recent happenings on the platform over the last few weeks. 

Twitch's 'Just Chatting' section has turned into quite the meme of late with the number of bans that have been handed out.

Just a few days into the year, a streamer was banned after "accidentally" streaming herself topless.

Only two days after that, an official Twitch channel, ironically classified as a "food" channel, got the platform in some hot water when one girl was seeing using another girl's butt to roll a joint

Not to be outdone, another streamer was banned after starting her body paint stream a bit too early.

While it doesn't seem like there is anywhere else to go after this latest stream seemingly took things as far as possible, there are still 11 months left for someone to figure out a new way to step things up even more.
