Porn Site YouPorn Considers League of Legends or Dota 2 Team Sponsorship


"Porn website YouPorn could be the next sponsor of an eSports team. The adult website today asked its fans on Twitter for their thoughts about just such a move."


Porn website YouPorn could be the next sponsor of an eSports team. The adult website today asked its fans on Twitter for their thoughts about just such a move.

"Do we have any competitive LoL, Dota 2, or HearthStone players following us? What do you think about YouPorn sponsoring a team?" the company said on Twitter (NSFW).

The response has been quite positive, with fans reaching out to say things like "DO IT!" and "yes." The general manager for North American League of Legends team Counter Logic Gaming, Kelby May, even replied to the post with his contact information, telling YouPorn to get in touch if it is serious.

It's possible that YouPorn is not fully serious about sponsoring an eSports team and is merely exploring the possibility of doing so. We have reached out the company for further comment and will update this story with anything we hear back.

It is also unclear if pornographic sponsors are allowed at eSports competitions, but we have reached out to Major League Gaming (MLG) for input.

Why YouPorn would want to sponsor an eSports team isn't all that hard to understand. The eSports scene is growing in popularity; marquee events often attract viewers by the millions. Though some are skeptical about the legitimacy of competitive gaming, the eSports industry is undoubtedly gaining mainstream recognition of late, as this year's X-Games Austin was the first to feature video game competitions.
