Specialist cinema archiver Youporn has announced they’re looking for Dota 2, League of Legends, and Hearthstone teams to sponsor.
This isn’t the first time a porn site’s looked to get into eSports, but if Youporn manage to find a team for each game it will be the most successful attempt.

The announcement came via Youporn’s twitter feed:
Do we have any competitive LoL, DOTA2, or HeartStone players following us? What do you think about YouPorn sponsoring a team?

(If you’re at work I’d suggest avoiding the full on Twitter account.)
The tweet’s been met with much support, with thousands of people retweeting and replying. Clearly, Youporn know their audience.*
The last time porn and eSports shared a bed it caused a fair bit of controversy. Back in 2012, Brazzers announced they wanted to sponsor players in the Fighting Game Community. Some were wholeheartedly behind the idea, others... not so much.
The announcement never came to anything, however. We’ve contacted Youporn to see if they’ll tell us more about their plans.
*In a separate note, Youporn publish audience analysis to their dev blog. Some of it’s fascinating, like the noticeable dip in viewers during a nation’s world cup games.
