ASACP Honors Fleshlight, Safenames, FUBAR Webmasters as Featured Sponsors

LOS ANGELES (October 1, 2021) — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, is pleased to name Fleshlight, Safenames, and FUBAR Webmasters as its Featured Sponsors for October 2021.

ASACP’s Featured Sponsors rank among the industry’s most respected companies,

and serve as excellent examples of how corporate responsibility, ethical operation, and basic proactive measures all help to protect minors and other online viewers from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials.

ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning said that the nonprofit association relies on the ongoing support it receives from companies and organizations that assume a bold, leadership role in the fight to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials.  

“ASACP’s sponsors are committed to online child safety and take steps to protect the innocence of youth, such as restricting access to their apps and websites,” Henning said. “By supporting the association and its initiatives, our sponsors enable us to work with content publishers and other stakeholders to raise the industry’s awareness of relevant issues, while keeping pace with the constantly evolving range of digital media platforms.”

“The support we receive from our sponsors is the key to our long-term success,” Henning explained. “It is only through our partnerships and programs that the association can truly improve the safety of children’s daily digital lives.”

ASACP relies on the generous guidance and support that it receives from sponsors, such as Fleshlight, Safenames, and FUBAR Webmasters, to power its 25-year-long record of success and to enable its free child protection resources — including an array of market-specific Best Practices along with a comprehensive Code of Ethics for businesses, app publishers, and all operators of age-restricted websites.

ASACP’s achievements are crowned by its RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta-labeling system that helps parents prevent children’s access to adult-oriented webpages and mobile apps; and its CP Reporting Tipline, which has earned worldwide respect for processing more than 1 million user reports to date.

As with all of ASACP’s services, these tools are provided free of charge, thanks to the ongoing generosity of the association’s family of sponsors.

ASACP recognizes Fleshlight, Safenames, and FUBAR Webmasters as October’s Featured Sponsors, honoring these market leaders’ continued commitment to making the internet safer for children and their families.

Fleshlight

An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, 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. At 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 the company, 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 high-quality, discreet, and tasteful products, 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.

Safenames

An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2020, Safenames keeps companies one step ahead by protecting their online brand, data, revenue, and reputation.

Founded in 1999 and based in the U.K., Safenames is a privately owned company with established operations around the globe, serving as a leading provider of global domain management, brand protection, SSL, hosting, and cyber security services for more than 20 years.

Safenames’ comprehensive suite of partnerships and managed web-based tools enables its customers to effectively protect their domain names, trademarks, and online brand identities across the globe.

“In a fluid digital age, Safenames enables clients to make their mark on the world by providing a safe and secure framework where their brands are protected,” said Safenames’ CEO Adan McManus. “We engage, we connect, and we share our knowledge to help deliver our client’s aspirations as we strive to be the top service provider in protecting and securing digital brands and platforms.”

“Safenames focus on brand protection aligns with ASACP’s focus on online business protection through child protection, making for a mutually beneficial alliance,” McManus added. “We are proud to become Corporate Sponsors of ASACP and to help it provide a safe space for brands, children, and consumers alike.”

FUBAR Webmasters

An ASACP In-Kind Media Sponsor since 2009, FUBAR Webmasters offers an online resource site for all parties, conferences, conventions, 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 thanks Fleshlight, Safenames, and FUBAR Webmasters, for their continued commitment, generosity, and leadership in aiding the association in its mission to make a tangible improvement in online child protection,” Henning concluded. “ASACP and its family of sponsors are united in this task and represent the best of the best in the industry. We encourage other brands to step up and join us today.”
