PETA knows how to raise eyebrows. The animal rights group's memorable campaigns have entailed everything from celebrities posing nude for its anti-fur campaign to scantily clad women having an erotic moment with their vegetables to support veganism.

Now, PETA has pulled out all of the stops with a XXX porn site for its next clever marketing endeavor, reports The Register.

PETA confirmed the XXX site in a phone interview with The Huffington Post.

"We live in a 24 hour news cycle world and we learn the racy things we do are sometimes the most effective way that we can reach particular individuals," said PETA spokeswoman Lindsay Rajt.

Instead of focusing on anti-fur, the porn site will raise awareness of veganism, said Rajt. "We really want to grab people's attention, get them talking and to question the status quo and ultimately take action, because the best way we can help the greatest number of animals is simply by not eating them."

An increasing number of groups are suggesting that eating less meat is better for your health, and certainly better for animals. PETA's website describes life for animals on factory farms:

Chickens have their sensitive beaks seared off with a hot blade, and male cattle and pigs are castrated without any painkillers. Farmed chickens, turkeys, and pigs spend their brief lives in dark and crowded warehouses, many of them so cramped that they can't even turn around or spread a single wing. They are mired in their own waste, and the stench of ammonia fills the air.
So how pornographic will PETA go? According to Rajt, it will have enough adult content to qualify for the XXX domain site but also some other graphic images of animals that viewers may not expect to see.


Australia's Herald Sun reports that "PETA's sexy side displayed in galleries and videos will quickly give way to the sinister world of animal mistreatment uncovered by the groups hidden camera investigations in a very different kind of graphic content."

With the finer details still to be finalized, PETA did confirm that regular people, not just celebrities, will also be featured in the project.

"There will be a lot of girl and boy next door content, but we haven't ruled out celebrities on the site as well," said Rajt. "People who are extraordinarily dedicated to helping animals and who are willing to do whatever it takes to draw attention to the suffering they endure."

The first environmental porn movement was founded back in 2005, reports The Independent. Set up by a Swedish and Norwegian couple, the duo offered a subscription video service with money being raised for the environment.

PETA's jump into adult content comes on the heels of Brooke Hogan posing nude for a photo exhibit to benefit PETA, although there was no direct affiliation.

PETA has done ad campaigns with adult film stars Sasha Grey, Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jameson. In 2008, the organization's YouTube account was temporarily shut down after posting racy videos of celebrities and others posing nude.

Even though PETA's intention is to improve animal welfare, some argue that the move to protect animals comes at the cost of exploiting women. A Facebook group, Real Women Against PETA, was created after the organization posted a billboard of an obese woman that read, "Save the Whales, Lose the Blubber, Go Vegetarian." A headline for The Sydney Morning Herald once read, "Pro-vegetarian group treats women like meat."

But Rajt explains the motives behind these tactics are cleverly thought out and ensure they get results: "We try to use absolutely every outlet to stick up for animals ... We are careful about what we do and wouldn't use nudity or some of our flashier tactics if we didn't know they worked. We also track the effectiveness of our actions very closely and see if we get visitors checking out other features on our site."

If this isn't a joke, then I'll be laughing rather than being angry.

AlixJ18 08-20-2011 02:23 PM

Well i just lost any respect i had left for PETA, they are so freaking stupid.

Kibbleforlola 08-20-2011 02:24 PM

Oh peta. It was only time...

*sigh*

Poppy 08-20-2011 02:26 PM

*facepalm*

SomebodyElse 08-20-2011 02:27 PM

It's official then. PETA has been taken over by the meat and dairy industries, and they are doing their damnedest to make us all look like idiots.

Envy 08-20-2011 02:29 PM

Well, maybe I'll go there.

For the articles of course. *ahem*

AlixJ18 08-20-2011 02:36 PM

This made an omni say "makes me want to eat more meat", thanks PETA.

Snowcone 08-20-2011 03:40 PM

Vegan porn? It's been done.

River 08-20-2011 03:43 PM

Well, finally, i can look at porn on a website that doesn't support the 'meat' industry

Envy 08-20-2011 03:47 PM

I'm almost ashamed for not coming up with the "meat" analogy first.

peacefulveglady 08-20-2011 04:18 PM

oh dear , I can't wait LOL

earthwhispers 08-20-2011 04:20 PM

PETA further proves it's a PITA.

LOL very nice one too. I love their recipes but I'll go elsewhere.

Words can not describe the stupid in their actions.

GhostUser 08-20-2011 05:54 PM

"This made an omni say "makes me want to eat more meat", thanks PETA." \t\t\t\t\t\t

Telling some people about how the animals suffer makes them say they want to get a burger! People who eat meat will use any excuse. PETA had nothing to do with that guy's words. It's all on him/her.

GhostUser 08-20-2011 06:05 PM

While you are all looking down your noses at PETA, try not to forget the good stuff that they do. Like dog houses for neglected dogs, like free spay and neuter programs in the city where their office is, like the protests they organize to try and convince designers to quit using fur, like the undercover videos that they've produced (at great personal cost to their own peace of mind - how would you like to take their places when they've gone undercover?), ongoing efforts to persuade various corporate heads, the money they've donated to fund research into non-animal testing methods (http://www.cosmeticsdesign.com/Regul...g-alternatives), to name a few.

Some of their methods are a little bizarre, some a mistake from beginning to end, and some help. Their hearts are in the right place.

I'm sure Pythagoras would have been proud.

Classic rationalization. Let's all go have a meal at McDonald's. Never mind their flaws, they have scholarship programs for underprivileged youths and the Ronald McDonald house.

I lost all respect for PETA years ago in Norfolk.
These are people that really do not want to ever get in my face again. Next time the little pansy ass puke dies instead of just getting seriously beat.

Im not even sure I would put my brakes on if a PETA convention were to cross the street in front of me.. Unless they were carrying animals.

I think a PETA porn site actually sounds kind of funny. I envision Go Vegan! messages interposed between shots of um, wieners 'n such.

Fatman 08-20-2011 09:03 PM

I dont see wieners in their future, wouldnt appeal to a large enough market

sequoia 08-20-2011 09:25 PM

Does this honestly surprise anyone?

As funny as Scientology and Fox News.
