    Revenue source for adult themed site?

    My apology if this post is deemed 'inappropriate'.

    I recently acquired a nice 'adult / health education' themed domain name and want to make it into a large community. The site and URL can be seen here (Don't worry, site does not have any adult related images).

    I'm sure if I advertised on large high school / college sites (e.g. Friendster/ Bebo..etc), I could get a good following of members. However, how would I monetize the site?

    I tried the google adsense preview, but it stated that the content was deemed inappropriate. Anyone else have an adult education themed web site that draws in revenue from respected ad networks?

    What are your other sources?

    Thanks

    try AVNads.com - they are part of adbrite and are probably a reasonable starting point.

    If you're trying for CPM, and getting rejected from networks, don't forget about CPA ads. We've got a Playboy campaign, and a soon to launch Condom campaign that would be right up your alley.
    Are you familiar with MaxBounty.com yet?

    Over 11,000 network affiliates seeking programs to advertise

    *BUMP*

    Any more suggestions to my original question?

    Since then, i have been successful at SEO - i'm ranked on the first page of both MSN and Google for the term Sex Questions!

    Now to monetize it!

    After 8 months, I am still having trouble finding a revenue stream. I was recently rejected from MaxBounty.com - even though they said that they offerred condom ads.. which is right up my ally.

    I sold two text links for $25 / mon. And that's it.

    Anything else? Too bad google doesn't allow my site. I'd really hate to become an affiliate of some really bad adult sites.

    Thanks!
