You have probably heard of the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter. Well there is now we have a crowdfunding site “for fetish communities and adult content”, according to their tagline.
The site looks very similar to the gadget crowdfunding site but there’s one major difference within this site there is only adult content ranging from adult films, projects, movies and books.
The site was launched earlier this week and is already allowing users to submit their projects which are monitored by a tea to insure there’s nothing
Rewards are also different as pledges will be able to receive them during the campaign and will do so even if the campaign’s goal is not reached.
The founders of the site are the two brothers Tao and Eric Lai, before OffBeater Tao was a project manager for Yellowpages.com and Lai worked for Boeing, presumably they got bored with this and started up their new adult business.
“We’ve bootstrapped the business from personal savings and have been making money since we launched. As you can imagine seed and angel funding for adult businesses, even if you are doing innovative things, isn’t easy to come by. So we knew from day one we had to make money in order to survive. That being said we still like to try the ‘mainstream’ tech ways of getting money. I think we’re on our 3rd rejection from Y Combinator and even have been rejected by every Los Angeles startup incubator (and there’s like a billion of them!),”
“The big thing is there are no serious players in the space for adult crowdfunding. The big guys like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo don’t allow adult projects and honestly never will. Not only are their communities not suitable for adults, but they can’t because of their payment processing,”
Said Tao in his interview with TechCrunch, to find more information check out the source link below also drop us a comment below with what you think.
