Why is this adult site allowed to use Paypal?

Though there is a similar question: 

https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Payments-Archive/Paypal-Now-OK-With-Adult-Sites/td-p/10064...

no direct answer is there. 

 

I'm very curious about why some adult sites like WankzVR (see below) can accept payment via Paypal. Isn't this against Paypal's Acceptable Use Policy mentioning "sexually oriented materials"? If OK, why?

Additional info: 

 

Porn sites accepting payment via Paypal (and Epoch):

I can still add hundreds of adult sites like this. 

 

"Paypal made a deal with epoch earlier this year, paypal is willing to ignore some of its rules when it comes to large enough networks. For example they don't allow tobacco but I can go to Dollar General and buy a pack of cigs with paypal. Or I can go to Academy Sports Stores and buy a firearm using paypal."

Now, Paypal official answer is needed. Isn't Epoch against the rule?
