PETA's Porn Site Goes Live, Taking Sign-Ups
NORFOLK, Va. — PETA’s porn site is live and now taking sign-ups.
Although the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ site only contains a splash page teaser, it promises a lot more than the nudes that the organization is know for in its mainstream ads.
Copy on the site reads, "We're not quite ready to reveal PETA.XXX yet, but we promise that when we do, there will definitely be a real happy ending."
Last August, the animal rights organization announced its adult site when it applied for a .XXX domain.
Lindsay Rajt, a spokesperson for PETA told XBIZ at that time the site would include explicit images and the possibility of featuring well known porn stars and personalities.
“You know we’ve worked with Ron Jeremy, Sasha Grey and Jenna Jameson before, so there is that possibility that we’ll have them on board again as well as other big names,” Rajt said.
PETA promised graphic images and content that will “shock some and leave lasting impressions on others.”
And some of the site’s keywords being used to push traffic support the goal including “PETA, XXX, naked, sexy, rather go naked, fetish, and porn.”
Firing back at criticism that claimed the website is just another way that PETA disrespects women, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk in a Huffington Post interview last January called the accusations "fiddlesticks.”
"I am a woman, and I am 62 and a bit," she said. "I have appeared in the I'd Rather Go Naked ads. That may give you a shutter, but it's true. And we have ample examples of men who have appeared in them, too. They just don't get the same press. We pretty much do anything and everything. It's just that some things get press and some things don't."
