Using 'kinky' in a domain name

Hi Guys,

I've been reading these forums on and off for a while but just joined up now to ask this question.

I am starting a new site and want to use the word kinky in the domain name.

While the site will be targeting an adult audience, it won't be 'adult' in the filtered sense of the word.

I just wanted to know what your thoughts are on using kinky in the domain name and whether it will trip any filters or cause me any problems in the future, such as all the sites that say 'no adult'

Thanks,
Ian

as an adult webmaster myself if you drop the word "kinky" it will trigger a lot of webmasters that think "adult" is dirty so won't exchange with you

As your site is going to be adult in nature then you will just have to except the fact that you will only be linking and working with other Adult webmasters, which isn't such a bad thing as theres a lot of very good adult webmasters

good luck with your site and hopefully see you around the serps

Without knowing your target audience or 'product' I suggest finding a synonym for kinky in a thesaurus.

This may come across to some as an euphemism. To others it may not 'click' for them as the word would be above their reading level (High School or College).

In my catalog of sites I maintain is a 'hobby' type of site with an adult theme (it barely pays my time and hosting cost).
