ASACP Announces Its February 2021 Featured Sponsors

LOS ANGELES—The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has named three adult companies/entities—Epoch, Cherry Pimps and TES Affiliate Conferences—as its Featured Sponsors for February 2021.

ASACP’s Featured Sponsors promote responsible business practices through ethical operation and proactive measures that help to protect minors and other viewers from accidental exposure to age-restricted materials and also serve to improve the overall safety of children’s daily digital lives.

ASACP’s executive director Tim Henning said that the nonprofit association’s success relies on market-leading companies, organizations and service providers that are willing to assume a leadership role in the fight to keep children out of and away from adult-oriented materials.  

“Responsible companies are stepping up to the challenge of online child safety by sponsoring the association and taking several simple but necessary steps to help protect the innocence of youth,” Henning explained. “This support is vital during these uncertain times when more people are online more often and the innocent need more help to protect themselves.”

The financial and material support that ASACP receives from its sponsors, including Epoch, Cherry Pimps and TES Affiliate Conferences, power its 25-year record of success and enable its free child protection resources, including market-specific Best Practices and a Code of Ethics for online businesses, app publishers and all operators of age-restricted websites.

ASACP has earned global praise for its achievements, including the development of the RTA (Restricted To Adults) meta labeling system that helps parents prevent their children’s access to countless adult-oriented webpages and mobile apps. Another major accomplishment for the nonprofit association is its respected CP Reporting Tipline, which has received and processed more than 1 million user reports to date.

Like all of ASACP’s services, these tools are provided to all website and app publishers, as well as to concerned consumers, free of charge, thanks to the generosity of its sponsors.


A founding Platinum Sponsor that has supported ASACP for more than 20 years, Epoch is a payment facilitator, enabling merchants to process transactions online and through mobile devices, accepting global payments for digital products and services, while earning a reputation for legitimacy and oversight of client web properties in the process.

Epoch takes an active, two-pronged approach to child protection; first, by ensuring that its services are not used by illegal websites selling materials depicting underage performers; and secondly, by selflessly providing dedicated service to the association’s Advisory Committee, which helps set the responsible standards and practices for legitimate adult entertainment and other companies. Epoch also provides boardroom facilities for ASACP meetings, as well as other tangible assets.

Epoch’s responsible corporate philosophy puts the protection of children at the highest of priorities, exemplifying the type of industry-leading company that makes up ASACP’s most valued sponsors.

Cherry Pimps

Supporting the association as a Corporate Sponsor since 2013, Cherry Pimps helps to protect children and other viewers from inadvertent exposure to age-restricted materials by locking its content behind a paywall, requiring viewers to purchase access to the company’s adult material, including its live webcam sex shows, rather than offering it as a free-for-all.

“We’re happy to continue our support of the ASACP as they work to help protect children online,” said Cherry Pimps director Eric. “Their work is invaluable and we must remember that their work is often thankless, but extremely necessary to keep child predators out of the online environment.

“We thank the entire team at ASACP and look forward to many more years of cooperation,” he added. “I encourage all those who are not sponsors to step up to the plate and participate, and give back to your community.”

TES Affiliate Conferences

An ASACP Sponsor since 2010, TES Affiliate Conferences (formerly The European Summit [TES]) was founded in 2009, with the event bringing together professionals from the online entertainment industry, e-commerce, financial, gaming, gambling, dating, forex, binary options, health, nutraceuticals and many other markets for a three-day networking event.

From the outset, TES was intent on creating a great networking experience for its attendees and delegates because, in this high-tech world, it is still of supreme importance that excellent interpersonal relationships be developed and maintained, as they are just the cornerstones of building a successful business.

TES has also been one of the association’s most stalwart supporters over the years, providing considerable, consistent assistance that has enabled ASACP to spread the word about the importance of online child protection to operators across Europe and beyond.

“ASACP is extremely grateful for the commitment, generosity, and leadership shown by its sponsors and members, including long-term supporters Epoch, Cherry Pimps and TES Affiliate Conferences,” Henning noted. “ASACP’s Featured Sponsors take action concerning the problem of online child protection, and so can you.”
