ASACP Honors XBIZ, AVN Media Network and FUBAR Webmasters as January Featured Sponsors
LOS ANGELES (January 4, 2021) — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, is pleased to name XBIZ, AVN Media Network and FUBAR Webmasters as its Featured Sponsors for January 2021.
Among the industry’s most respected companies, ASACP’s Featured Sponsors promote responsible business practices through ethical operation and proactive measures to protect minors from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials.
ASACP’s Executive Director Tim Henning said that the nonprofit association’s success relies on digital media companies, organizations and service providers that are willing to assume a leadership role in the fight to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials.
“As today’s youth are exposed to online harms at ever earlier ages, it is now increasingly vital that they are protected from the unintended consequences of living their daily digital lives,” Henning explained. “Responsible companies step-up to this challenge by sponsoring the association and taking the simple but necessary steps to help protect the innocence of youth.”
The generous financial and material support that ASACP receives from its sponsors, such as XBIZ, AVN Media Network and FUBAR Webmasters power its nearly 25 years of success; and enables its free child protection resources, including market-specific Best Practices and a Code of Ethics for online businesses, app publishers, and all operators of adult and age-restricted websites.
“2021 marks two and a half decades of ASACP’s outreach to the industry and the successes we have had are truly impressive — but the battle is far from over, as new technology and new users present increased challenges for child safety,” Henning added. “ASACP’s sponsors enable us to meet these obstacles head-on and we are most grateful for their commitment to our shared future.”
Among its most notable achievements, ASACP’s RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta labeling system 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 of ASACP services — including its CP Reporting Tipline, which has received and processed well over 1 million user reports to date, thanks to the generosity of the nonprofit association’s sponsors and members.
For January, ASACP honors XBIZ, AVN Media Network and FUBAR Webmasters as its Featured Sponsors, recognizing the continued commitment that these companies make to keeping the internet safer for children and families.
A founding Platinum Sponsor since 2002, XBIZ has a long relationship with ASACP, with both organizations having been founded by Alec Helmy.
XBIZ is a leading publisher of news and information, providing up-to-the-minute coverage of the adult industry at and in two monthly publications — XBIZ World for the digital media market and XBIZ Premiere for the retail and intimate products markets. In addition, XBIZ hosts multiple annual events in Los Angeles, Miami and Berlin, including the prestigious red-carpet gala XBIZ Awards, XBIZ Cam Awards, XBIZ Europa Awards and XBIZ Exec Awards.
AVN Media Network
A Platinum Sponsor since 2002, the AVN Media Network has a long and generous history of support for ASACP and its noble mission. According to the company, it is the definitive source for all that is adult entertainment by covering the evolution of this multibillion-dollar global industry — setting the standard for the business of pleasure by delivering unparalleled content reaching industry professionals, mainstream media, and a diverse spectrum of consumer groups and communities.
AVN protects children from accessing the adult-oriented material on its websites by utilizing RTA labeling as a proactive and protective measure. AVN has also been generous to the association financially and through material support, extending its hospitality at AVN events; such as providing advertising services and underwriting hotel accommodations, among other niceties that have helped the association carry on its mission, including by providing guidance through its participation on ASACP’s Advisory Council.
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 appreciates the generosity of the industry-leading media outlets that it counts among its valued sponsors, such as XBIZ, AVN Media Network and FUBAR Webmasters, which help empower the association’s efforts to protect children by helping us get our message out to the stakeholders that need to hear it,” Henning concluded. “ASACP’s Featured Sponsors take actual action concerning the problem of online child protection, and so can you.”
