What is Sex.com?
Sex.com is a site that lets you browse content from adult creators, similar to OnlyFans. The older version of the site was a more traditional porn tube and image site that also had an online dating section. According to SimilarWeb, Sex.com gets an estimated 64 million monthly views. The Wayback Machine estimates Sex.com was founded on December 19, 1996. It has been a consistently heavily trafficked site since the year 2000. The Sex.com domain was reportedly sold for $13 million in 2010 to Clover Holdings. It was the most expensive domain name sale at the time.
Is Sex.com Safe?
I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if Sex.com is safe and legitimate. Here are the results:
I installed the Malwarebytes browser guard extension on my Chrome browser and browsed the site without any issues. There were no restrictions by the browser guard which means it didn’t think the site had been compromised.
To check this further I ran a malware scan with Malwarebytes on my computer and it returned no malware detection.
To confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site Sex.com on an online malware scanner and it returned with no issues. It said the site didn’t have any malware. It also said the site was not blacklisted by any known security vendors. You can see the same here: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/Sex.com
There is one thing that could be improved which is related to the security headers. According to the malware scan, the ‘unsafe-inline’ keyword in Content-Security-Policy is not recommended.
Lastly, I ran a malware scan with VirusTotal on the domain Sex.com. The scan detected at least 10 files communicating with the domain and no security vendor listed the site as malicious. You can see the same here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/domain/sex.com
In conclusion, Sex.com is a low security risk which means it is safe to visit. It even has a website firewall installed which is quite rare. We have no problems recommending this site.
