Gawker Media Puts Fleshbot.com Up for Sale

Anyone in the market for a porn blog? If you screamed “Yes!” First, calm down, you probably scared your dog, and second — we have some good news for you: Gawker Media has put Fleshbot.com (link NSFW, unless your boss is creepy) up for sale. Its editor, Lux Alptraum, posted this announcement the morning.

“For the past eight years, Fleshbot has made its home at Gawker Media,” wrote Alptraum. “But as GM has grown, its sales strategy and technology platform have ceased to effectively support Fleshbot’s needs. We think someone else could be a much better partner to grow the site with us… As one of the only adult properties that manages to maintain a solid foothold in the mainstream world, Fleshbot is a unique property — and with our star-studded and much lauded Awards show, we’ve only increased our potential to dominate the mainstream media.”

There are so many puns in that quote that we’re completely overwhelmed.
