OffBeatr: Two Tech Geeks Launch a "Kickstarter for Porn" (NSFW)

See also: Nadya "Octomom" Suleman Visits Phoenix to Hawk Her Porn DVD -- And Offers to Talk for $20 Per Minute Because there's no shortage of places to crowdfund your latest (and worst) idea, Ben Tao and Eric Lai left their corporate office jobs to create Offbeatr, what they describe as " The Kickstarter for Porn."

OffBeatr functions like most crowdfunding sites -- creatives pitch their ideas, those interest pitch in a couple bucks with gift-based incentives, and the project is successfully funded when the money raised reaches the idea's goal amount.

But instead of funding an ice cream shop, an artist project, or the production of a record by a local band, all money raised on Offbeatr goes toward "sexier" projects.

Tao told TechCrunch the project was born out of a serious lack of porn-funding resources/ Kickstarter and IndieGoGo don't support "adult" projects -- that, and it's probably harder to make eye contact while passing around a cash basket to fund your sleazy ideas.

Currently up for funding: Super Fuck Friends, a humor approach to porn, Double D Erotica (tagline: "Read Our Lips....Real lesbians, real sex!"), and Erotic Adventures in WAM Land.
