Gawker Media Puts 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 (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.

Penthouse Pet Ryan Keely Guest Editing Gawker’s Fleshbot

2011 Penthouse Pet of the Year runner-up Ryan Keely is guest editing Gawker Media’s Fleshbot this week. Maybe her work will finally help put to rest the stereotype about bloggers sitting around in their underwear. Because, from what we’ve seen, she’s clearly not a fan.

“I’m humbled that [editor] Lux Alptraum thinks I’m up to the task of guest editing Fleshbot and I’ve been working very hard to create what I hope is interesting content to amuse the Fleshbot readers,” Keely told Adult Video News.

So how are things going? Keely started out strong, with a lovely little tale of popping a random Internet fan’s threesome cherry. Lots of good visual imagery involving “juices” and “balls.” Tough to go wrong. But then things took a  slight ethical turn. Last night, Keely wrote a glowing review of Penthouse‘s new 3-D porn flick Real Pornstars Of Chatsworth. Not quite sure how the porn review world works, but it doesn’t seem quite right for a site to bring in a Penthouse Pet to hype up Penthouse‘s expensive new 3-D porn endeavor.
