Company Looks to Add .Sex, .Porn, and .Adult Domains to Internet

The company behind the controversial .xxx Internet domain has filed applications to add .sex, .porn and .adult to its generic top-level domains.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a nonprofit organization that coordinates the Internet’s unique identifiers, held a press conference in London, England on Wednesday to release a list of generic top-level domains (TLD) that organizations around the world have applied for.

Included in that list are ICM Registry’s pornography-themed domains, which are much like the .xxx domain the company became the registry operator for in 2011….

Morality In Media (MIM), the organization behind pornharms.com, opposed the .xxx domain and says adding others like it is harmful because they only serve to help increase the amount of pornography on the Internet. MIM argues that adding domains for the adult entertainment industry could also be costly to non-porn companies, schools and other organizations, which may feel obligated to purchase them for the purpose of protecting their own reputations.
