.xxx will be soon introduced by the ICM Registry

A domain designed purely for the sex industry has been given approval by internet overseer Icann.
The top level domain .xxx will be soon introduced by the ICM Registry. It ends a ten year dispute about whether a domain should be used for pornographic content.
In 2005 the move was given the go ahead, but was rescinded after political and religious groups protested against the use of the domain. Many felt the domain legitimizes pornographic websites.
