The adult entertainment site YouPorn may want to enter the world of eSports.
Speaking in a Twitter posting today, the site asked its followers what they thought about the prospect of it offering financial support to a competitive gaming team.
“Do we have any competitive LoL, DOTA2, or HeartStone players following us,” asked the site. “What do you think about YouPorn sponsoring a team?”
The posting immediately garnered a slew of responses from followers both positive and negative. Even with the mixed response however, it’s not hard to understand why YouPorn might be considering such a move. The popularity of eSports has been consistently on the rise in recent years, with some tournaments drawing live audiences in the thousands and prizes for competition rising up into the millions of dollars. An audience of that size and clearly possessing internet access could obviously be valuable to a site of YouPorn’s disposition.
