Question
hello,
I need a little help finding the right way to get a website for the adult industry. and how to go about it the right way. i have been looking up website builders that do the adult theme, and all of them say kinda the same thing but I dont want to trust something that will get me into trouble or not doing it more my way than their's. and i was just wanting to see if you could point me in the right direction and maybe a little about how to get started. I am new to this!

Answer
Amber,

There are many considerations when launching an adult website.  You did not indicate whether you would be producing your own content, licensing it from others, whether it would be a free site, a subscription site, or something else altogether.  The answers to these, and other questions, will dictate what steps you should be taking.

If you are merely looking for reputable website developers at this point, feel free to contact me through my website at adultwebsitelawyer.com and I can give you a few recommendations.  If you are looking for broader help on how to start and comply with the applicable laws in the adult industry, let me know that as well and perhaps we can help.
