We know you don’t read Fleshbot for the articles, but we figured that anyone who is interested in porn and the internet would be intrigued by the tale of Sex.com. It’s been over 10 years since the famous domain name was stolen from its rightful owner and now millions of dollars and several lawsuits later, the fight goes on as one man continues to search for the money he feels belongs to him, while another would rather sit in jail rather than give the cash up. The Guardian recounts the history of this sordid tale, which reminds us – as if we needed it – that there is a whole lot of money being made in the online porn world, and people will do a lot of crazy things to get their hands on it. Take a few minutes to read it the article. Unless someone somehow manages to steal Fleshbot.com, we promise the boobies will still be here when you get back.
