ASACP Names Dating Gold, Porn.com, Cybersocket as September Featured Sponsors


LOS ANGELES (Sept. 4, 2019) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce Dating Gold, Porn.com and Cybersocket as its Featured Sponsors for September 2019.

ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning explained how the association’s monthly Featured Sponsors, such as Dating Gold, Porn.com and Cybersocket, rank among the adult entertainment industry’s most highly-respected companies and serve as prime examples of how proactive corporate policies drive ethical operation and social awareness to help protect children from adult-oriented materials.

“ASACP is proud to honor outstanding companies that have demonstrated a commitment to online child protection, encouraging other companies to take a leadership role in keeping children out of and away from adult entertainment,” Henning explained. “By sponsoring ASACP, the industry’s most prominent players prove that legal adult entertainment and digital media businesses are able to ‘do the right thing’ when it comes to preventing children from accessing adult-oriented materials.”

The association makes careful use of the support it receives from its sponsors to continue its 23-year record of success and to provide a range of educational, informational, and inspirational resources for digital media companies, including market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics for businesses, app publishers and website operators.

Among its most notable achievements, ASACP’s Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label helps parents prevent their children’s access to billions of adult-oriented webpages and mobile apps and is offered to all site and app publishers free of charge, as are all ASACP services, thanks to the generosity of the nonprofit association’s sponsors and members.

For September, ASACP honors Dating Gold, Porn.com and Cybersocket as its Featured Sponsors, recognizing these companies’ continued support of the association and their ongoing commitment to making the internet safer for children and families.

Dating Gold

A valued ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, casual dating and webcam affiliate program DatingGold.com demonstrates its commitment to protecting children by including the RTA label on its flagship cam site WebCamClub.com, and dating site, AmateurMatch.com. It also offers a number of other niche cam and dating sites, as well as co-branded affiliate sites.

Although ASACP holds its sponsors to the highest ethical standards, cam and dating sites are faced with additional membership requirements because they contain user-generated content  that is produced outside of commercial channels, which regulate a performer’s proof of age — so extra steps are needed to help ensure that only lawful images and consenting adults are displayed.

Here, DatingGold excels as an example of how proactive measures by content providers can make a difference in keeping children safe on (and from) the internet.

Porn.com

A consistent supporter of the association’s mission, Porn.com has been an ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2008 and is considered by fans to be one of the internet’s top destinations for adult-oriented videos and more.

Operating a video “tube” site that receives submissions from registered content partners, Porn.com bypasses many of the questionable content issues associated with tube sites that allow uploads from anonymous users; which often consist of unauthorized postings of copyrighted material or depictions of underage models.

By controlling the sources of its content, Porn.com provides proof that adult tube sites can operate successfully without having to take a blind eye toward the type of materials they publish.

Cybersocket.com

An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2003, Cybersocket produces print and digital media aimed at the LGBTQ community. The company has hosted the annual Cybersocket Web Awards, honoring the finest gay online services for the past 20 years and is gearing up for the 2020 Edition in conjunction with the XBIZ Summit in Los Angeles. The awards show will be Monday night Jan. 13, 2020. After 20 years of publishing its print magazine by the same name, the company decided to make the transition to being 100 percent digital. Now all energy is put into making the digital products effective and entertaining for advertisers and the audience.

Cybersocket promotes gay adult websites to a large and varied audience worldwide while providing news, practical resources and provocative original content for the LGBT community. An industry leader, Cybersocket provides a powerful example of keeping children out of and away from adult-oriented material, in part by using the Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta-label on its website.

“My business partner and I have supported the mission of ASACP from its inception. And for a number of years I was able to be on its advisory panel,” Cybersocket’s Morgan Sommer says. “I know the real-world work that ASACP does in the realm of child protection that it is necessary, and most of which goes unseen and unpublicized. In the current social and political climate I feel it is more important than ever to self-police as an industry and make it clear to all that we have no interest in minors visiting our sites and that we as an industry are just as keen as anyone else to expose and remove child predators who lurk online.”

“The generosity of leading adult companies such as Dating Gold, Porn.com and Cybersocket enables ASACP’s ongoing achievements and tangibly improves the daily digital lives of today’s constantly connected youth,” Henning concluded. “ASACP’s Featured Sponsors show that both leadership and responsibility is alive and well in the adult entertainment industry.”
