I had to turn my adblocker back on because I was getting ads for adult games and didn't have an option to block those specifically. Y'all might want to look into where you're getting your ads.

How does Google choose ads?

Contextual targeting: Game (GPRO)
+
Personalized targeting: Users browsing history (adult content/dating sites etc. ?) (just guessing)

= adult games

Maybe turning off add personalization might help: (There's even a plugin for it) https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996

https://adssettings.google.com


To show relevant advertising. We might use data that includes your searches and location, websites and apps you’ve used, videos and ads you’ve seen, and basic information you’ve given us, such as your age range and gender.

https://myaccount.google.com/intro/activitycontrols

Also, one might turn off all kinds of monitoring from Kookle options:
https://myactivity.google.com/?hl=en

In addition to that, clearing your history & cookies locally from time to time may help too :)

^^ just some thoughts there :)

The thing that is nutz with those google things is this: In order to "block" some adds one has to either log into the service or allow cookies, which btw: are methods of tracking internet usage :)
