(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP.org) is pleased to announce that Bondage.com has taken their long time support of ASACP to a higher level by becoming a Corporate Sponsor. On board with ASACP since July 2003, Bondage.com qualifies as Founding Member.
"It was initial support of such early members and industry leaders as Bondage.com that provided ASACP with the financial resources to implement its automated systems," states Joan Irvine, executive director, ASACP. "Luckily for ASACP, Bondage.com is similar to other Sponsors and Approved Members as they renew each year and also increase their financial level of support. I also really appreciate the 'hands-on' approach that company owners Mark Pace and Brooks Talley provide as they regularly volunteer at the ASACP exhibit and help promote its mission at tradeshows."
Bondage.com President Mark Pace adds, "It has always been our philosophy at Bondage.com to support organizations that provide excellent products and services that promote the best business practices for our industry. ASACP has clearly shown us that they are a highly effective organization and have the best interests in mind for both the adult Internet as well as their mission of protecting children. Our annual membership upgrade and continued future support online and offline is testament to that."
San Francisco-based Bondage.com is the world's largest online adult community catering to the BDSM lifestyle since 1995. With over 100,000 logons per week, and an average of over 2,000 members logged on at all times, Bondage.com demonstrates that niche communities can be a resounding success. The Bondage.com website is located at bondage.com
ASACP is very active in the efforts to remove child pornography from the Internet. It has provided a child pornography reporting hotline since 1996 and annually sends over 3,000 validated reports to the FBI, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and other relevant international hotlines. It has developed technical systems that monitor its members for words which might denote child pornography. In addition to its reporting hotline, ASACP provides a self-regulatory vehicle for its members through a Code of Ethics that promotes the protection of children through responsible, professional business practices (ASACP.org/bestpractices.html).
