Finally! There MAY be sex on the internet

John Moe Jun 25, 2010

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has given initial approval of a new domain name for pornography sites – .xxx.  This doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no porn elsewhere online.  ICM Registry LLC has been trying to get this domain up and running a few times, but has always been knocked down.  Now, the head of the company says he thinks the sites might be live as early as 2011.
