Kink.com was founded by Peter Acworth in 1997 as Cybernet Entertainment. After launching the company’s first website, Hogtied.com, and running it for a full year from his graduate school dorm room, Peter moved the company to its current home in San Francisco. In 2006, the company became Kink.com, a network of BDSM and fetish sites, and has continued to grow ever since.

Kink.com’s studios are headquartered in the San Francisco Armory, a 200,000 square foot 1914 reproduction of a Moorish Castle that served as a National Guard Armory and Arsenal until the 1970s. The historic landmark was purchased from a private owner in 2006 by Kink.com CEO Peter Acworth. For more information about the Armory, please visit ArmoryStudios.com.
Kink.com comprises and entire network of fetish and BDSM sites, including over two dozen premium subscription sites; a free documentary news site, BehindKink.com; a interactive live cam site, KinkLive.com; and an on-demand site, KinkOnDemand.com, that allows customers to purchase every shoot ever published by the company on an individual basis. KinkOnDemand.com also provides exclusive access to Kink.com’s impressive collection of test shoots, as well as shoots from leading third-party producers from around the world.

KinkMen.com, the company’s gay division, was launched in 2008, with the release of BoundGods.com a gay bondage site. Helmed by legendary director Van Darkholme, Kink Men now boasts five sites including NakedKombat.com, a hardcore wrestling site and MenOnEdge.com, a BDSM edging site.

Kink.com features a wide variety of fetish entertainment, including femdom, TS and BDSM. For a full list of our sites, visit Our Sites.

Kink.com employs a diverse staff of over 100 talented and sex-positive people. All of our regular site directors are full-time employees, but guest directors are occasionally contracted for special shoots. With the exception of our site directors who appear onscreen and a few other full-time employees who also participate as regular models, our on-screen performers are contractors who have either applied through our website or have been hired through talent agencies.

Kink.com has garnered one of the best reputations in the adult entertainment industry for our respectful and fair treatment of models. We provide clean, comfortable working conditions and an honest and approachable crew; we ensure that models fully understand their rights and feel empowered to stop or alter a scene at any time; we ask all directors to follow a strict set of shooting rules so that all of our content conforms with our company values; we treat our models as professionals and compensate them generously for their talent.

Kink.com is the only major adult company that posts its standard pay rates. Please see our model call page for more information about our rates.
