LOS ANGELES (June 1, 2022) — ASACP, the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection, is pleased to name ImLive, LetsDoeIt, and Cybersocket as Featured Sponsors for June 2022.
ASACP’s Featured Sponsors are among the industry’s most respected companies. These industry leaders demonstrate how corporate responsibility, ethical business practices, and simple technical measures can help protect minors and other users from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials online.
As a nonprofit association, ASACP relies on the continued support of companies and organizations willing to assume a proactive leadership role in the fight to protect children online.
“ASACP’s family of sponsors are the fuel that powers the association’s efforts to raise awareness of the need for online child protection while providing solutions tailored to today’s emerging platforms,” ASACP Executive Director Tim Henning explained. “Industry leaders and stakeholders have joined together to support the association’s vital work because by working together, we can make a difference by protecting society’s most innocent and vulnerable members.”
ASACP’s ongoing successes are made possible by its sponsors’ guidance and support. These successes include providing free child protection resources, market-specific Best Practices, and a comprehensive Code of Ethics for app and age-restricted website publishers. Positioned at the pinnacle of ASACP’s achievements is its RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta-labeling system that helps prevent children’s access to adult-oriented web pages; and its CP Reporting Tipline, which has processed more than 1 million reports to date.
As with all of ASACP’s services, these tools are provided to publishers and others free of charge, thanks to the generosity of the association’s family of sponsors — including June’s Featured Sponsors — ImLive, LetsDoeIt, and Cybersocket.
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, ImLive is a premium provider of live interactive webcam services that unite a large global base of individual performers and studios with customers from around the world.
Bridging the gap between consumers and producers puts ImLive at the forefront of ASACP’s mission to keep children out of and away from adult entertainment. For example, chat hosts must provide photo identification for age verification — part of a series of identification and compliance measures.
In addition, ImLive is monitored 24/7 via a dedicated monitoring tool. This tool shows a continuous multi-window real-time stream of models broadcasting their live cameras on the site. Furthermore, site users can flag any live video chat stream they believe is inappropriate. The company also limits any explicitly sexual displays to paid private shows, where only adult members are allowed.
Beyond these measures and its support of ASACP, ImLive showcases its strong commitment to online child safety by using RTA labeling and offering a “warning page” overlay.
LetsDoeIt is an adult-oriented paysite network that provides online content to adults only and, as such, is on the frontline of the need for child protection — a responsibility that LetsDoeIt takes seriously and proudly advocates throughout the industry.
LetsDoeIt is a patron of the child protection initiative by being one of the pioneers of age verification in Europe. Amidst all the recent changes, LetsDoeIt ensures that all big players in the adult ecosystem move simultaneously to address the rapidly growing changes the web has thrust upon society as a whole, which of course, affect children and minors more than ever.
The company uses an age warning page and the RTA meta-label code to prevent minors’ unauthorized access to its flagship website. In addition, it has special measures and policies to ensure that LetsDoeIt only displays legal content. These measures also apply to the newest addition to the company’s portfolio of websites, Superbe.com, a non-sexually driven product focusing on sophisticated erotic art.
“Even more than being just legal, the most important role of the adult industry is to protect children from a problem that still haunts us today: child pornography and abuse,” said Phil, COO of LetsDoeIt Network and Superbe. “LetsDoeIt and Superbe only work with adult companies and producers who share this important viewpoint and cooperate against this serious matter.”
Unlike some competitors, LetsDoeIt does not allow user uploads and only operates with legally licensed content. They have set precedence in the industry by setting the bar for compliance and legal standards regarding production, making it an absolute pleasure for producers and models alike to work with them.
“LetsDoeIt and Superbe will continue fighting for this cause,” Phil continued. “We will continue working closely with all our partners, including state officials, to ensure we are one step ahead and lead by example for others to follow.”
An ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2003, Cybersocket promotes gay adult websites to a large and varied audience while providing news, practical resources, and provocative, original content for the LGBTQ community. For the past two decades, as an industry leader, Cybersocket has hosted the annual Cybersocket Web Awards honoring the finest gay online services and providing a powerful example of how to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented material, in part by using the RTA label.
“My business partner and I have supported the mission of ASACP from its inception. And for several years, I was able to be on its advisory panel,” Cybersocket’s Morgan Sommer says. “I know the real-world work that ASACP does in child protection is necessary, most of which goes unseen and unpublicized. However, I feel it is more important than ever to self-police as an industry in the current social and political climate. We must clarify that we have no interest in minors visiting our sites and that we as an industry are as keen as anyone else to expose and remove child predators who lurk online.”
“ASACP is grateful to ImLive, LetsDoeIt, and Cybersocket for their continued commitment, generosity, and leadership in supporting the association and its mission to protect children by keeping them out of and away from adult-oriented digital media,” Henning said. “ASACP’s family of sponsors are united in pursuing this goal and represent the industry’s best and brightest. We encourage other media platforms and service providers to join us in building a better future.”
