Taylor Swift Buys Porn Domains

Why Taylor Swift Reportedly Bought Porn Domain Names

Taylor Swift is reportedly the proud owner of the TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult domains, but it's not what you think. According to CNN, after it was announced that anyone can buy .porn and .sucks websites starting June 1, some celebrities and brands were eager to scoop up the domains before the Internet trolls do. Stuart Lawley, CEO of ICM Registry, which operates the .porn and .adult top-level domains, said in an interview that even Microsoft registered Office.porn and Office.adult in order to protect its brand. Meanwhile, Steve Miholovich, SVP of marketing at Safenames, explained, "They want positive images — they want positive messages. They're not going to turn [.sucks] into a positive." Now Taylor can shake off all the worries of other people owning her name for porn sites.
