PETA Plans Soft-Core Porn Website

September 21, 2011 by  

NORFOLK, Va., Sept. 21 (UPI) — A U.S. animal rights organization is thinking of using online erotica to make more people aware of its cause.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, usually known by the acronym PETA, has applied for a Web site on the .xxx domain, The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot reported. Lindsay Rajt, the group’s director of campaigns, said its Web site would not feature hardcore pornography but would have “sexually suggestive” material.

“As soon as we heard that the.xxx domain was becoming available, we thought that would be triple extra effective in helping us bring our important issues of animal rights and eating a vegan diet to a greater number of people,” Rajt said.

PETA, based in Norfolk, is against using animals for food, clothing, medical and scientific testing and entertainment.

Rajt said PETA has long used nudity for its shock value. It has run ads with unclothed actresses saying they would rather have no clothes at all than wear fur, and has even held nude protests in cities including Brattleboro, Vt.
