1) is it legal to post text conversations that I have with girls online if they have naked pictures that the girl sent me (via text), assuming I censor out their face, name, and personal information?
2) can I post naked pictures that I took of the girls when they were at my house , assuming I censor out their face, name, and personal information
Both of these questions also obviously assume that both parties are over the age of 18
You would be subject to a variety of potential claims unless you have their express written permission. Something meant for your eyes does not mean you have the right to republish. There are privacy issues, IP issues, and others.
You have a slew of potential causes of action including but not limited to copyright, invasion of privacy, etc. If you do this ensure that your budget includes a significant amount of money for legal fees.
The response above is general information related to law and not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
Besides the questions you raise about posting the pictures you already have, there will be other questions you find as you seek to open an e-commerce web site or App. Working with a lawyer as you begin will save you a lot of money in the future.

Publication of sexually-explicit images is a highly regulated field, and should only be undertaken with the guidance of legal counsel. You will need proper model releases, licenses, age verification, and Section 2257 records, to start. Censoring personal information does not provide you with the rights to publish these images, or put you in compliance with federal records-keeping laws. The operation of an online dating site raises numerous legal issues aside from those associated with explicit imagery. Contact an experienced Internet Attorney before proceeding.
