SDC: Seek, Discover, Create
Seek Discover Create has taken pride in being an active Corporate Sponsor of ASACP since 2008 and is fully committed to fighting for the rights and protection of minors. SDC works to prevent minors from accessing its site by using the RTA label, as well as protecting visitors from unwanted exposure to sexually explicit imagery by carefully curating the material available on its homepage.
Since its inception 20 years ago, SDC has become the world’s largest international swingers’ dating site of over 3 million members and features listings of verified local swingers and swingers’ clubs, parties and events, a dating app and travel services. Recently, to add value to their members and visitors, SDC has expanded their global reach as a multilingual media hub for videos, podcasts, and articles provided by some of the world’s leading health, relationships and sexuality professionals. With this added emphasis on education, SDC’s rigid stance against child pornography is more influential and important than ever.
“We work very hard to help the fight against child pornography on a daily basis,” said Dave from SDC. He further explains that SDC.com has an active support staff that combs through the website 24/7 to ensure that no type of illicit activity is going on, as well as devoted members who contact SDC if they see anything that they believe to be hurtful or offensive.
“We have a zero-tolerance policy for those who violate our rules and take immediate action to provide the authorities with the violator’s personal information,” Dave adds. “SDC believes that possessing and receiving child pornography is a serious federal crime, and we take the victimization of children very seriously. We vow to do our part in fighting this important battle.”
An ASACP In-Kind Media Sponsor since 2009, FUBAR Webmasters offers an online resource site for all 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.
“ASACP’s Featured Sponsors highlight the diversity of support the association receives from all adult business segments,” Henning concludes. “The generous contributions by leading companies such as SDC and FUBAR is what enables ASACP’s positive achievements in improving the daily digital lives of at-risk youth.”
