The YNOT brand was introduced to the adult entertainment business community in 1996 when founder Rick Muenyong created YNOTnetwork.com and later YNOTmasters.com; his goal was to provide early online developers of adult websites with a central hub where they could network and promote ethical business practices in what was then a largely lawless Internet. That vision is carried on today by current owners and adult industry veterans Connor Young and Jay Kopita.
YNOT’s flagship website is now YNOT.com and the YNOT brand has been extended over the years with additional services for the adult industry. After twenty five years of operation, the YNOT brand is still synonymous with promoting ethical and sustainable business practices in the adult entertainment space.
YNOT Group LLC
YNOT Group LLC is a media company that offers business to business (B2B) news and resources for adult companies, industry performers, adult affiliates and peripheral service companies.
YNOT will always be anchored by its flagship website YNOT.com (www.ynot.com), which is one of the most trusted sources of adult industry news and information. YNOT.com offers adult industry news articles, a Directory of professional service listings, and valuable how-to guides for adult industry affiliates. YNOT readers can also sign up for YNOT’s popular and free email newsletters, which offers news, announcements and special offers delivered by email.
YNOT Magazine is a quarterly print publication produced and distributed by YNOT Group. New issues of YNOT Magazine are made available for free at YNOT.com, at industry trade shows and to newsletter subscribers via digital download.
YNOT also operates the blog YNOT Europe (ynoteurope.com), which offers adult business news coming out of the EU, and in early 2016 the company added YNOT Shoot Me (ynotshootme.com), a photo-journalism site in collaboration with veteran adult industry photographer Buster Brown.
YNOT Cam (ynotcam.com) was also launched in 2016; it’s a professional blog that offers tips and advice to cam performers and content creators.
YNOT Events LLC
YNOT Events LLC is a professional events company that produces adult industry award shows, in-person trade shows and virtual summits.
YNOT Events proudly produces the annual YNOT Awards (www.ynotawards.com), an industry award show that focuses entirely on adult internet companies. YNOT Awards first debuted in 2011 in Prague, and has successfully run every year since in collaboration with The European Summit — with the exception of the 2020 show, which was 100% virtual due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2018 YNOT Events debuted YNOT Cam Awards (awards.ynotcam.com) in Hollywood, California. While YNOT Awards focuses on businesses and industry executives, YNOT Cam Awards recognizes the adult industry’s top talent. From the moment it launched, YNOT Cam Awards sought positive change to how the industry awards performers. It has done away with award categories that reduce performers to stereotypes, cliches and body parts. It presented major award categories that include performers of all gender identities. Past shows have featured amazing performances by comedians like Brad Williams, Kate Quigley and Kelsey Cook, and there is a glamorous red carpet event before the show featuring live streamed interviews with nominees and adult industry stars. Highlights from the 2019 show are available on YouTube.
In 2019 to further support models and performers YNOT Events introduced YNOT Cammunity (www.ynotcammunity.com), the first B2B trade show designed for cam performers, content creators and interactive platform services. YNOT Cammunity features seminars, networking events, parties and demos.
The newest offering from YNOT Events was born in 2020, the year of social distancing. YNOT Summit (www.ynotsummit.com) is an all-virtual conference just for the adult industry. The online-only show features two seminar tracks, one for industry models and another for webmasters, affiliates and business executives. The virtual show also offers online speed networking, virtual exhibits and more.
