AltPorn: AltPorn Genre History Timeline

We at AltPorn.net have recently done a lot of research using reputable sources including Archive.org, as well as other verifiable documentation, to collect for you the definitive timeline and history of the AltPorn genre. This timeline goes back a bit farther than the actual descriptive term AltPorn, but that label was coined to describe an existing and/or developing genre, so this just makes sense.

We’re starting this new project in the name of accuracy. Too many articles have been published with incorrect information regarding site launch dates and such. as a matter of fact, if I see one more article claiming SuicideGirls was first and everybody else copied them, I’m going postal. It probably shouldn’t matter much who started first, so long as they are doing a good project right now, but since it does seem to matter enough for people to write about it, we feel like they should have the most correct information available.

Much like our Alexa ‘A’ List charts, this is a bit of a work in progress. There may be a few sites missing and given the nature of the Archive.org site crawling spiders, the dates could be up to one or two months off, but we feel this is pretty complete. We welcome any site owners who would like to give more refined documented information. We are also interested in suggestions from our readers about sites we may have overlooked. Just email us at info@altporn.net.

On a side note, there was no Archive.org information available for the launch dates of CharmClub.net, GodsGirls.com, Rascallettes.com, or PerverseFixation.com.

I saw your post on sgirls, but I'm not a member there so can't comment.

As for inkygirls, perhaps its warning page archived from Nov. 2003, corroborated by a review on janesguide.com from the same month, also archived, will do? janesguide might be another source for sites you might have missed.

(I myself have been a member of inkygirls since December 2003.)

It's unfortunately blocked on archive.org, but around late 1999 / early 2000 there used to be a site called dark-angels.com, a gothic and vampire porn paysite based in the Boston area. Now all that remains are aging sites that linked to it, for example here.
