The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) is pleased to honor Southern Charms, Dating Gold, and GFY as its Featured Sponsors for September 2023.
ASACP’s Featured Sponsors rank among the digital media industry’s most respected operators. These industry leaders demonstrate how corporate responsibility, ethical business practices, and several simple technical measures can help protect minors and other sensitive users from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials online.
As a nonprofit association, ASACP relies on the continued support of the companies, organizations, and individuals willing to assume a proactive leadership role in the fight to protect the innocence of children from online harm.
“ASACP is extremely grateful for the guidance, inspiration, and support that it receives from its dedicated family of sponsors,” said Executive Director Tim Henning. “This two-way exchange of ideas and resources is a key element in our success at protecting children from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials online.”
ASACP’s ongoing successes are made possible by its sponsors’ generous guidance and support. From free child protection resources to market-specific Best Practices, and a comprehensive Code of Ethics for app and age-restricted website publishers, ASACP provides the tools that companies need to keep minors out of and away from age-restricted content. Positioned at the pinnacle of ASACP’s achievements is its RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta-labeling system preventing children from accessing adult-oriented web pages and apps; and its CP Reporting Tipline, which has processed more than 1.25 million reports and continues today as a vital global resource.
As with all ASACP services, these tools are available thanks to the generosity of the association’s sponsors, including September’s Featured Sponsors — Southern Charms, Dating Gold, and GFY.
An ASACP Title Sponsor since 2003, amateur porn portal Southern Charms is one of the world’s largest sites, with more than 25 years of experience in providing women over 18 years old with an opportunity to have their own customized website. Accessible to adults only, Southern Charms takes pride in being a clean site that features age-verified models with releases on file for each performer.
“You will not find obscene material or underage models on Southern Charms. You will only find clean adult amateur fun,” said a company representative. “Please rest assured that if someone communicates to us that they are interested in underage pictures of models, we will report it to the appropriate authorities immediately.”
In addition to its support of ASACP, Southern Charms backs up its business philosophy by using RTA labeling and a clean warning page and securing explicit content within its premium members’ area.
A valued ASACP Corporate Sponsor since 2007, casual dating and webcam affiliate program DatingGold.com demonstrates its commitment to protecting children by including the RTA label on its flagship cam site WebCamClub.com, and dating site, AmateurMatch.com. It also offers a variety of other niche cam and dating sites, as well as co-branded affiliate sites.
Although ASACP holds its sponsors to the highest ethical standards, cam and dating sites are faced with additional membership requirements because they contain user-generated content that is produced outside of commercial channels, which regulate a performer’s proof of age — so extra steps are needed to help ensure that only lawful images and consenting adults are displayed.
Here, DatingGold excels as an example of how proactive measures by content providers can make a difference in keeping children safe on (and from) the internet.
An In-Kind Media Sponsor since 2021, GFY.com is known for its lively community and uncensored discussions. GFY features a range of dedicated message boards devoted to topics ranging from casual commentary to in-depth adult and mainstream business discussions. In addition, educational forums and marketplaces for content, jobs, services, traffic, and more round out the GFY experience.
GFY’s “Where the Industry Meets” tagline underscores its value as a veteran resource, event host, and touchpoint for the adult digital media business.
“ASACP appreciates Southern Charms, Dating Gold, and GFY for their commitment, generosity, and leadership in supporting the association and its mission to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented content,” Henning concluded. “ASACP’s sponsors are building a better future for the industry and society’s most vulnerable members. We thank them for this and encourage others to help support our efforts on behalf of society’s most vulnerable members.”
