Fleshbot is a sex-oriented weblog, founded by Gawker Media. It was launched in November 2003 as the third online title from Gawker. The range of subject matter includes everything from amateur sex blogs and thumbnail gallery posts to news about sex in popular culture and advertising. The blog covers both heterosexual and homosexual erotica[1] and users have the ability to filter between the two if they choose.

Fleshbot is edited by Lux Alptraum (formerly Lux Nightmare), who has been put forth in woman-friendly PR as the owner of Fleshbot since 2012.[2] A simple whois check demonstrates that Nick Denton's Blogwire is still the holder of Fleshbot's domain name.[3]

Fleshbot appears on the ACMA Blacklist (see Internet censorship in Australia) that was released via Wikileaks on March 20, 2009.[4]
