Manwin Bans All Business With .XXX Websites

LUXEMBOURG — Manwin today said it will cease “any and all Internet liaisons with the .XXX top-level domain.”

Manwin, with the announcement, has banned all activity between its brands and Internet sites registered with a .XXX TLD, including advertising for .XXX websites on its tube sites. In addition, Manwin said it won’t permit its content to be used or advertised on .XXX websites.

The move is in addition to its antitrust lawsuit it filed with Digital Playground last month against .XXX operator ICM Registry and ICANN.

“We oppose the .XXX domain and all it stands for,” said Fabian Thylmann, managing partner of Manwin. “It is my opinion that .XXX domain is an anticompetitive business practice that works a disservice to all companies that do business on the Internet.

“The lawsuit was just the beginning,” Thylmann added. “Through this ban, we hope to make a strong statement against the .XXX domain.”

Manwin, which runs Playboy sites as a licensee, claims to be the owner of the largest network of adult websites in the world, with more than 60 million daily visitors, operates, among others, Brazzers, YouPorn and Twistys, as well as Spankwire, Webcams Tube8, ExtremeTube, KeezMovies, Mofos, ExtremeTube, JuicyBoys and PornHub.

“Apparently Manwin is confused about whether it wants to bring antitrust claims or commit antitrust violations,” ICM’s Stuart Lawley told XBIZ.

“We find it ironic that a company that’s accusing us of anti-competitive tactics is taking such an anti-competitive action that could cause potential financial harm to the same webmasters they claim they’re trying to help.”

Now that Teagan has claimed her .xxx domain, does that mean that none of the companies boycotting will hire her? It seems like it should.

I almost see it as her first step toward retirement. Control her own site, fill it with old scenes, then sprinkle in a new scene or a chat once in a while to get the fanbois worked up for her feature dance gigs.

Dude, Nina long ago took that first step toward retirement. She has no relevance to the current adult movie industry. Vicky Vette is an example of how to turn that business model into a success: she works for herself, and owns her own content — and she didn’t have to betray the adult industry to do it.

If I shot xxx content, I’d be damned if I hired a pro-.xxx performer even to sweep the floor.

I was talking about Teagan’s possible retirement model.

I think I’ve only heard of the Mercedes broad from boards. Pretty much, if they didn’t start out doing barely legal anal, then I don’t pay attention.
