Offbeatr.com Offers Crowd Funding to Adult Entertainment Producers

Crowd funding site for adult porn entertainment content Offbeatr
Los Angeles, California – Extra Lunch Money, the marketplace for custom and pre-made adult digital products, announces the advance industry preview of [Offbeatr.com], a platform that enables public crowd funding for the adult entertainment industry.

Offbeatr is the first crowd funding resource specifically designed for the adult industry. Offbeatr allows producers, performers, artists, authors and other adult content creators a way to raise money for their projects from individuals in exchange for unique rewards, utilizing crowd funding for the adult industry. With Offbeatr, each Project Creator will get a dedicated page which describes what their project is, how much money they are raising, and what rewards they will offer in exchange for monetary pledges from the public.

Crowd funding, or crowd financing, describes the collective cooperation of many individuals coming together to pledge funds to an individual or organization to complete a specified project from the funds raised, utilizing the public as the financing arm for the project. One of the most well known mainstream crowd funding sites is Kickstarter, which is often used by small businesses, artists and other creatives that are seeking the support of fans or patrons for designated projects.

Supporters use Offbeatr to pledge money to projects listed on the site that interest them, and receive the rewards offered by the Project Creators for their financial help in completing the project. At the end of the project funding deadline, if the project reached its goal then the Supporters credit cards are charged and the money is transferred to the Creator. If the goal isn’t met Supporters aren’t charged at all.

Extra Lunch Money and Offbeatr CEO, Ben Tao said, “I would love to say Offbeatr was a totally original idea, it’s not. While there are hundreds of crowd funding websites online, there are exactly zero which allow projects of an adult or sexual nature. If your creativity involves trying to get your ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ porn parody made, good luck trying on a mainstream crowd funding site. So where does that leave people who have a great adult movie, website or mobile app idea, and need a little funding to get it off the ground? Offbeatr fills that gap and offers several benefits. Project Creators raise the money they need, while retaining the rights to their projects, and Supporters get unique rewards with the satisfaction of directly supporting Project Creators who are producing the type of adult content they want to see.”

Ela Darling will post a project for the launch of Offbeatr. She explained why the concept is very welcome for performers and others in the adult industry.

“When Kickstarter launched, I sent out some feelers to see if I could bring to life this fun fairytale porn idea I had, but I was shot down by the site admins because they didn’t want to host that sort of project. Then I catered an adult art project specifically to the Kickstarter community, and it was successful, but it’s still disappointing that in spite of that success, I can’t bring other, bigger projects to a crowd funding site like that.”

Tao is excited, “There should be a lot of creativity and variety in the projects posted to Offbeatr. Project Creators will be able to present what they’re passionate about and truly want to work on, without worrying about how to make them acceptable to the traditional sources of capital. Before Offbeatr there was little chance of any adult project idea seeing the light of day, but with Offbeatr we offer something previously not offered: Hope.”

Offbeatr is looking for passionate and creative Project Creators, to submit their projects to the site. Offbeatr projects will be by invitation only during the advance industry preview period. Potential Project Creators can request an invitation by visiting Offbeatr.com or by email to info@offbeatr.com.

New York, New York – While the Los Angeles City Council battles with the porn industry over use of condoms, New York has embraced latex with the upcoming New York Rubber Ball and the Miss Rubber World pageant, presented by Fetishmovies.com. Rounding out the list of contestants is adult industry star Mistress Kendra James, and a Southern California contender going by the name of Cunnelingo.

“I’m really looking forward to Miss Rubber World 2012,” said Mistress Kendra James. “I can’t wait to be in the same room with so many of my favorite latex designers and some hot rubbery girls!”

James also has mainstream credits having toured with Ozzy Osbourne as a stage performer and has appeared on MTV’s “The Osbournes.”.

“Representing West Coast in the Miss Rubber World contest is truly an honor,” said Cunnelingo. “This will be my first time in New York and I can’t think of a better way to pop my rubber cherry!”

While the contestant roster for Miss Rubber World 2012 is now complete, additional applications are still being accepted to fill in as alternates if any of the current competitors drop out.
