ASACP Salutes September's Featured Sponsors
LOS ANGELES (Sep. 2, 2014) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is honored to announce its Featured Sponsors for the month of September, 2014.
Every month, ASACP selects several sponsors to recognize for their outstanding efforts and ongoing support in helping the association to carry out its mission of protecting children, by keeping them out of and away from adult entertainment.
“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors program honors providers of digital media and related services for their support of the association,” ASACP Executive Director, Tim Henning explains. “Beyond this support, the association’s Featured Sponsors are having a positive impact in the lives of today’s youth, while serving as worthy examples of proactive responsibility that their peers can follow.”
For September, ASACP salutes four of its sponsors: 7 Veils Media, Cybersocket, Dating Gold and Fleshlight, for their continued support of the association and the fight to protect children.
7 Veils Media
A Title Sponsor since 2013, 7 Veils is the premier social media marketing firm for the adult entertainment industry. The company builds Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus strategies to integrate with a client’s overall marketing campaign, and assists ASACP in broadening and refining its social media initiatives.
“The adult industry is a leader in child protection and advocacy and it is 7 Veils privilege to be the social media outlet for this important work,” 7 Veils CEO Lauren MacEwen explains. “7 Veils chose ASACP specifically because we deeply value a need to protect our children from sexual exploitation, be it overt or subtly concealed and 7 Veils is proud to provide the social media management for this extremely important organization.”
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor, Cybersocket targets the broader GLBT community by not only producing the nation’s largest freely distributed gay magazine, but also by producing the Gay Pornucopia blog, plus a comprehensive search engine and the gay webmaster chat board, TheGayBoard.com. The company also hosts the annual Cybersocket Web Awards, honoring the finest gay online services.
Cybersocket seeks to popularize gay and lesbian oriented websites, while providing news, practical resources and provocative original content for the GLBT community. As an industry leader, Cybersocket is 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.
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 affiliate co-brands.
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 (UGC) that is produced outside of legitimate commercial channels that regulate a performer’s proof of age, so extra steps are needed to help ensure that only lawful images of 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.
Also honored this month is Fleshlight and its parent Interactive Life Forms, LLC, a leader in the field of sexual health and fulfillment, which has also been an ASACP Sponsor since 2007. During this time, the firm has served as a positive example for other adult novelty companies.
In an era where vibrators have been championed as a means for female sexual freedom and enjoyment, male sex products have remained something of a dirty, unwanted cousin to their female counterparts. According to Fleshlight, by providing a high quality, discreet and tasteful product, it hopes to help change these perceptions and bring the topic of male sexuality into the public discourse, with a focus on providing adult novelties to adults only.
From social media marketing to the heart of the gay market, from live cams and casual dating to the leading edge of male sexual aids and more, ASACP is proud of its family of sponsors, which represent responsible adult-oriented businesses that make “doing the right” thing part of their corporate culture — and your company should too.
