ASACP Honors February’s Featured Sponsors
LOS ANGELES (Feb. 2, 2015) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its Featured Sponsors for the month of February, 2015.
ASACP’s monthly Sponsor Recognition Program honors the achievements and generosity of those digital media businesses, services and support firms that take a proactive stance towards protecting children online from exploitation and from exposure to age-inappropriate materials.
“These top companies are worthy examples, placing corporate responsibility above profits,” ASACP’s Executive Director, Tim Henning, explains. “Today’s adult entertainment industry protects children by keeping them out of and away from age inappropriate materials and by assisting the association in carrying out its many initiatives such as its Child Exploitation Reporting Tipline.”
Honoring its Featured Sponsors for February, 2015, ASACP recognizes Cybersocket, Girlfriends Films and Pimps Promo for their generous support of the association and its fight to keep children out of and away from adult entertainment.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2003, 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.
“My business partner and I have been big fans of the work ASACP does from its beginning 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.”
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2008, Girlfriends Films produces and distributes lesbian themed adult entertainment “for fine folks with good hearts and curious minds.”
A progressive company that is committed to quality and responsibility, Girlfriends Films offers a range of products including DVDs as well as membership and clip sites and video on demand services, which it secures behind a pay wall to limit free access.
Girlfriends Films not only sponsors ASACP, but it upholds the spirit of the association and its mission by using RTA labeling and through the use of warning pages before showing any age-inappropriate content online.
Pimps Promo launched in July of 2003, initially as an ad brokerage, then evolving to include the buying and selling of domains and programs, branding, marketing, escrow services and photos and videos of various adult webmaster events and gatherings.
“I have personally supported the mission of ASACP since its inception, which was before Pimps Promo existed,” CEO Lloyd “baddog” Brown explains. “It only made sense that when
PimpsPromo.com was launched and it became popular with the adult community that Pimps Promo use whatever reach it had to promote and support the adult industry’s liaison with domestic and international law enforcement to battle child sexual abuse.”
“When the Restricted To Adults (RTA) label was added,” Brown adds, “PimpsPromo.com backed its words with action by adding it on the site to help responsible parents that utilize parental filtering software.”
“This month’s Featured Sponsors show the wide range of companies that support ASACP’s mission of protecting children on the Internet,” Henning added. “Our Sponsor’s generous financial and material aid is a vital part of the association’s success at saving at-risk youth.”
