Hi all,

Im a freelance developer, looking to move into another avenue and set up business.

Anyways, just had a call from a client whom I did an Estate Agency website for and he want me to do an 'Adult themed' website for him...web cams-payment area the lot...

What do I say?

Part of me feels it could be detrimental to my future business ect...is that true?

Cheers

geoffb

It might not be something to put up on your website as a reference, but unless you personally feel uncomfortable and the pay is good: why not? From what I read on boards, many developers and agencies won't touch it, so it might actually good for business if you make a great project, you'd be in a niche.
I'd take the job, always wanted to work on the mother of the modern internet ;)

I used to work on sites like this all the time with my old employer, a friend of mine also ended up doing similar work for another company, as long as you don't do what he did (start telling girls in bars that you work in "#*$!") I don't see any reason why not. Both companies charges 3-4 times more for a basic website in this industry then they would have for any other, just because so many people won't do it.

You could isolate yourself a little by forming an LLC or corp. Do all the business throught the corp name.

The only thing that I see that could be a problem would be if you'd ever run for office, but then again, there are people in national office who were pretty involved in the p*rn industry.

My motto is "anything for a buck!" however with that being said I would do it on the down low and stay quiet about it and not put it in my portfolio, but I would charge through the nose for the work and would probably do it through a corp or LLC to separate myself from stigma that might go along with the work.
