Cybersocket Acquired by NSFW.Army

SEATTLE — Cybersocket, Inc. has concluded an agreement with NSFW.Army for the purchase of all Cybersocket sites, products, brands and intellectual property.

Today's announcement follows the recent acquisition of Fleshbot.com by NSFW.Army, the team behind Cherry Pimps.

"Being one of the caretakers of Cybersocket and being heavily involved in the LGBT adult digital and print space for 25 years has been a true privilege," Co-Founder Morgan Sommer said. "[Co-Founder] Tim Lutz and I have both reached places in life where we feel that it's time to allow Cybersocket to grow in new ways and under new leadership. One of the hardest things to do as an entrepreneur is to recognize when you are what is holding your company back from reaching its potential."

"We feel confident that the team at NSFW.Army has a vision, the resources and the knowledge to take what we have built and make it even better," he concluded.

A rep noted Cybersocket and all related properties will receive "a thorough redesign and complete refresh."

Industry vet Theresa "Darklady" Reed has been "contracted as Channel Manager of the site and related properties," the rep said. "Any past or present Cybersocket partners are asked to reach out if they have not been contacted yet to see how partnered companies can continue working together."

NSFW.Army principal Eric praised Cybersocket's legacy; the brand celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2022.

"When we began reviewing available opportunities, Cybersocket was the type of brand you just can't pass on," he said. "Being an icon in the LGBT community for so long enables us to continue and broaden our expansion while paying homage to the brand that Morgan and Tim spent years creating."
