The newly designed site will give audiences a more engaging reading experience, the company said.
Both sites will maintain their distinct editorial coverage. GayPornBlog.com will continue to deliver exclusive coverage of new movies, behind-the-scenes scoops and adult stars, while TheSword.com will offer industry gossip, porn star interviews and its take on gay culture.
GayPornBlog.com is currently celebrating its ninth year under editors Jack Shamama and Mike Stabile.
“I would have never guessed that what started almost a decade ago as a fun ‘nights-and-weekends’ kind of thing to help us stalk our favorite porn stars would have turned into something this, well, legit,” Shamama said.
“The Internet is constantly evolving and we’re lucky we’re able to change with it. The new site gives readers more of what they want and makes it easier for them to find it.”
Under editor Zachary Sire, TheSword.com’s adult industry coverage has made national news headlines and is often quoted and sourced on mainstream sites like Gawker.com, Queerty.com, and HuffingtonPost.com.
“Even though I didn’t give birth to it and even though I hate babies, TheSword is like my baby,” Sire said. “So, I’m really proud and excited to hopefully keep people entertained and maybe even slightly informed on the new site. I love the sleeker look, and I hope readers do, too.”
TheSword.com and GayPornBlog.com are both properties of NakedSword.
