NEW YORK — Adult entertainment blog Fleshbot.com is for sale.

The Gawker Media-owned site was put up for sale in an announcement this afternoon by editor Lux Alptraum.

“For the past eight years,” read the post, “Fleshbot has made its home at Gawker Media. But as GM has grown, its sales strategy and technology platform have ceased to effectively support Fleshbot's needs. We think someone else could be a much better partner to grow the site with us ... and as such, Fleshbot is for sale.

“As one of the only adult properties that manages to maintain a solid foothold in the mainstream world, Fleshbot is a unique property—and with our star-studded and much-lauded awards show, we've only increased our potential to dominate the mainstream media. We seek a new home where we can continue to curate the best smut the world has to offer, and continue to grow our traffic (currently at 25-plus million monthly pages and 1-plus million monthly uniques)."

Gawker Media was founded by Nick Denton in 2003. Other sites owned by the company include Jezebel.com, Gizmodo.com, Gawker.com Kotaku.com and Deadspin.com, among others.

Alptraum's post directed potential suitors to an email address, inquiries@fleshbot.com.
