ASACP Honors its Featured Sponsors for October 2017
LOS ANGELES (October 2, 2017) — The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to announce its Featured Sponsors for the month of October 2017.
Each month, the association recognizes a selection of Featured Sponsors that demonstrate how adult entertainment professionals are committed to the cause of child protection — and operating on the front lines of this noble need, are able to improve the safety of children’s daily digital lives.
ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning notes that ASACP’s Featured Sponsors not only do their part to protect children but through their support of the association, enable its many in-demand services.
These services include the award-winning Restricted To Adults (RTA) meta label that filters out age-restricted materials, along with market-specific Best Practices and a universal Code of Ethics that guides companies towards child-safe operation. Additionally, the non-profit association’s 21-year-long record of success is highlighted by its globally recognized Child Exploitation Tipline, which has processed more than one million CP reports to-date — illustrating the value of the association and the effective use it makes of the support it receives.
“Through self-regulation and proactive measures,” Henning explains, “ASACP’s Featured Sponsors showcase the best of the industry, and reveal how serving the needs of adults does not have to come at the expense of protecting children.”
For October, ASACP is pleased to honor Fleshlight, FUBAR, and YNOT Group, as Featured Sponsors, recognizing their continued support of the association and expressing gratitude for the commitment these companies show to make the internet safer for children.
Celebrating a decade of ASACP sponsorship in 2017, Fleshlight and its parent Interactive Life Forms, is an established leader in the field of sexual health and fulfillment, and serves as a positive example for other adult novelty companies to follow. On the forefront of the development of haptic devices, Fleshlight bridges traditional novelties with the newest technology, to bolster connections between people around the world.
According to Fleshlight, 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. By providing a high quality, discreet and tasteful product, the company hopes to help change these perceptions and to bring the topic of male sexuality into the public discourse — with a focus on providing adult novelties to adults only.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2009, FUBAR Webmasters offers an online resource site for party, conference, convention, and event pictures and news relating to adult website owners, operators, affiliates and service providers.
“It occurred to me that the [photos] might be of interest to people who didn’t make it to the shows for one reason or another,” company owner JFK says of his desire to educate and entertain those operators working in the adult entertainment industry. It is an educational process that helps promote the effort to protect children online, with JFK setting an example by using a warning page and rating meta tag on his website’s homepage, along with providing links to parental filtering and child protection tools.
An ASACP Media Sponsor since 2016, the YNOT brand was founded in 1996, with a goal of providing website developers with a central hub where they could network and promote ethical business practices in what was then a largely lawless internet. Today the company offers a variety of B2B services for adult businesses anchored by its flagship website YNOT.com, providing industry news, forums and more.
These services include the YNOT Europe blog, photojournalism site YNOT Shoot Me, the YNOT Cam blog and hosted email marketing and delivery platform YNOT Mail, as well as several annual events, such as the YNOT Karting Grand Prix and YNOT Awards Show.
“YNOT has always applauded the efforts of ASACP to make the internet (and the industry) a safer place,” says YNOT Group, LLC co-owner Jay Kopita. “We are thoroughly pleased to make our support official and public.”
“From novelty technology to industry events, services and more, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors cover all segments of adult entertainment’s dynamic marketplace,” Henning concludes. “These professional organizations show they are legitimate companies, operating legally and with great care and concern for children. As such, they deserve the honor we bestow upon them.”
