The news reports say that Sex, the domain name, is worth at least
US$65 million. That's how much a federal judge
awarded the rightful owner from the pockets of a
cybersquatter who made an estimated $40 million in
profit over a five-year stretch.

The value set raised a lot of eyebrows. After all, conventional wisdom
held that the most expensive domain to date was Business.com, which sold
for $7.5 million back in 1999. Naturally, sex trumps business. But this verdict
should be viewed as undeniable proof that sex on the Internet is business. Huge business.

Wow, who knew that the .com world could sell sex at such a high price $65 million to be exact. Anybody who had seen the web and wall street knows that the only business that has effectively managed to overcome the obvious product delivery limitations of net commerce is the sex industry. Sex publications, toy manufacturers and yes even call girls are online. If I had money to invest, I'd bet my dollar on sex.com. It's the oldest hook in a homegrown package, your own personal computer!
