Using the rel attribute for this strikes me as wrong.

Quoting <URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/links.html#adef-rel>:

        This attribute describes the relationship *from the
        current document* to the anchor specified by the href
        attribute. [Emphasis mine.]

Surely, whether or not the site you're linking to is XXX/NSFW/whatever
is quite independent of its relationship to *your* site.

Perhaps class="xxx" would be better in this case.
