in the processes of starting an adult website

Hi, I`m new to the community.  I`m in the process of creating a free adult site, that will hopefully generate profits through affiliate sign-ups.
I want to get a sense of how the members of startupnation feel about the adult website industry.  Are you ok with it, or would want nothing to do with it?  I feel it is a viable e-business, the market is large.
Also any tips, advice or legal advice would be greatly appreciated !
I`ll send a shout out with the domain when the site is up in few days.
Thank You!

    I don`t think anyone here on SUN cares what type of business you run. From what I understand, SUN was created by Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs, and you aren`t any different than the rest of us.
    The only difference is that you are catering to a multi-million dollar industry "that is over-saturated" and it`s very difficult to reach to the top without you having to piggy-back on other websites, and like wtgg mention, most of them are porn - loop holes, that are used by hackers to get your information. I am not trying to discourage you, I have plenty of friends that are in the adult web design industry and they are currently out of work.
    Again, it can be done! you just need to know what you are doing and what you`re offfering.. What exactly are you offering?

    I think if you catered to a specific niche, it may give you an advantage over those sites that cover just general content.

    It`s very hard to decide on a niche, I agree, it is very over saturated.
    To sum up this is what I am offer:
    I will be using the Joomla content management system.  I will be focusing on daliy updates, with my own text content to include, jokes, articles with sites I do affilate marketing for such as interviews with the girls.  Daily updates also include, galleries with content provided from sponsors, revenue will then be generated from referal sales to these sponsors.  The website will also try to host a weekly review of an adult site.  A VOD(Video on Demand) section is offered through a partner, it ears 20% sales, and will appear as part of my site.  It will also include a adult shop, that will be run by drop shipping.  Finally a forum will be included.

    Market-Schmarket...I don`t care if you could make a trillion dollars over night...To be in such an industry...monetizing a gift from God between a husband and wife...Something that is not dirty in itself but beautiful, precious and something to be cherished because of it`s exclusivity and privateness...If you do this thing and make money to the point of gaining even the whole world you will still have lost, because you will lose your soul...I would for your own safety sake man, heed the word`s of Jesus above and beyond men who have lost all back bone and sense of their manhood...Woman are to be cherished and protected by us, not exploited...To do what you plan to do would put you on the same level as a pimp...Is that what you really want to be known as?  There is a lot of things you can put your energies toward and make an honest living... Selling sex for dollars will not improve nor bring anything positive into anyone`s...Don`t do it.  Call me if you would like to discuss it further.
