    (CNN) -- It's a big day for the porn industry.

    On Friday, ICANN, the not-for-profit corporation that coordinates the internet's naming system, voted to allow the application of the controversial ".xxx" top-level domain name for sites that display adult content.

    The domain, which would need further approval before going live on the internet, would be applied to adult entertainment sites just as ".com" is now.

    The .xxx internet suffix, which was first proposed six years ago by ICM Registry, a group that sells domain names, "will provide a place online for adult entertainment providers and their service providers who want to be part of our voluntary self regulatory community," according to that company's news release.

    Adopting .xxx will be optional. However, some tech blogs speculate a push to make the domain mandatory for adult-only sites.

    ICM Registry has already taken 110,000 pre-reservations for the domain, which could be available in early 2011, if not sooner, its news release states.

    While the company says labeling adult content online "will allow for simple and effective filtering for those who wish to do so," not everyone is pleased with ICANN's decision to approve the domain.

    Some people involved in the industry are hesitant to accept the domain, "fearing it will lead to censorship, as it would be very easy to block the entire domain instead of individual sites," Rick Johnson of Portfolio.com wrote Thursday.

    On the other hand, "some religious groups are against the creation of the domain, as it would lend more legitimacy to the adult entertainment industry," he wrote.

    What do you think of the ".xxx" top-level domain? Is it necessary? Let us know with comments on this post.

    I think it should of been around since the beginning, just common sense imo. I know when I was younger I always thought it was weird that porn sites were so easily accessable throuch .com domains.

    I think it's really sad that sex and nudity has such a taboo. This extreme taboo is the primary reason behind alot of mental problems people develop around the subject. Keeping kids from seeing porn is not going to prevent any STD or rape. This society keeps perpetuating it's own downfalls through extremist stupidity and the desire to control. The freeflow of information should not be limited whatsoever.

    i hope you aren't sharing your philosophy w/ all the little kiddies in your neighborhood.

    I don't push porn or condemn it.
    Here is a hypothetical example. Say one of those LED billboards from say one of those big money Jesus pushers got hacked and was playing some normal straight porn. Now say Billy-Bob is driving his truck down the highway with his six year old daughter picking her nose with one hand and pointing to said billboard with the other saying, "Daddy what's that?" The kid has no idea what it is and is genuinly curious to know what this strange act is. Billy-Bob goes red in the face and doesn't know what to say.
    Now ask yourself, is this kid being poisoned by knowledge that she is not ready for or is Billy-Bob simply a victim of the sensless taboo of sex that has been perpetuated for over 50 generations of dogmatic ignorance?

    Just to be perfectly clear here, I do not believe that porn should be plastered on every street corner and I also do not believe that porn should be forced into the deepest darkest depth of the underground black market. I simply believe that people (especially educated people) should wake up and stop being victims of ages old taboos, and start realizing that sex is just another part of life and is integral to our very existence. In all honesty, if this taboo were to be erradicated, the porn industry would take a huge hit because most people would view it with the emotion, "whatever".

    Seriously, it (prOn) needs to be kept away from young minds.
    It's a little too complex for the kiddos to view and understand.
    Just like with too much violence on tv, people become numb.
    the last thing we need is a generation of kids growing up jaded.
    Oh wait, it's already happening(ed).

    That's just the thing. It's not complex whatsoever. It's really pretty simple. Children can learn multiple foreign languages, and complex mathematics if they are exposed to it, but for some reason sexuality is too complex? It's really a pretty simple concept, but because we (parents and elders) are weirded out by the idea of trying to explain something taboo to the next generation, all of the sudden it becomes complex. We turn it around and instead of admitting that we are too embarrassed to explain something simple to a child, we blame it on the child not having the capacity to understand which is simply wrong.
    You can also ask the question, "why do children act so immature?" The answer is in most cases very simple; Because they are living up to societies expectations of their behavior. It will probably be a very long time before removing such expectations is possible outside of isolated circumstances though, since our society is so engrained with these backwards concepts.
    It took me the first decade of my adult life to shed many of the mental burdons put on my shoulders by this sick world and there will be remnants of them there for the rest of my life. At this point in my life I feel like I am looking down into a lake full of people drowning themselves trying to climb over one another to better themselves, not realizing that their neighbors downfalls quickly become their own and that their own psychosis fall onto their children and so on.
    But whatever. I am a victim of the jaded generation as well since all my attempts to remedy the worlds ills is ultimately futile and the best I can expect is to wake up one or two individuals amonst the mass of confusion and rotting excrement.

    Ftr before I reply I am not a bible thumper, really more an agnostic than an athiest. I am not a politically minded person more of a anarchist, well a minimalist when it comes to big brother. And I personally love porn.

    When it comes to children and porn, it has nothing to do with their intelligence level, or numbing them to porn, or even schooling them on the reproductive process. It has to do with diff maturity levels in everyone, child or adult, plain and simple. And seeing as everyone in this thread is quite intelligent when they want to be, I know I do not have to ellaborate. If someone wants to argue for arguments or to prove a point for the sake of it on this topic, I will not partake.

    According to that logic, there are likely millions of adults who are not mature enough to view the mildest porn. So in order to protect every dumb ass in the world from themselves, we should just make everything not approved by every major religion in the world an offense punishable by death.
    Now go watch Mr. Rogers and eat a kosher pickle. :P

    no but there are plenty of immature people who watch porn and do shit at the wrong place and time, obviously they lack the maturity level to know when to partake in a vice.

    I doubt .xxx has been/will be used a lot. The established adult sites like xhamster, http://theporndude.com/ and pornhub will only buy an .xxx equivalent, so nobody will steal their traffic/trademark.

    It would also make it very easy for site admins to just block adult websites with the push of a button.

    Agreed, and its just likely going to be used as a redirect anyway to their established site.
    Was talking about this a lot with my photographers group on FB, as they just released a .photography domain. But who wants to type in .photography anyway? :P
