Does Ronn Torossian have a certain fondness for online porn? I don’t know. But I do know it’s reared it ugly head again. Boing! Maybe he should just sit down for a while; think of cold mountain streams and such.
Alright, by way of background, back in February we questioned the judgement of 5W PR CEO Ronn Torossian. He had just gotten in bed with porn king Joe Francis. Sure, there’s money to be made in Hot Barely-Legal Girl-on-Girl Action; but... we’re convinced that let alone what it says about the PR business, ironically it just might impact the future of one of PR’s most prolific self-proclaimed rising stars. For instance, what if a year from now Ronn wanted to take on NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) as a client? Well, obviously, those guys are gonna think twice about some PR flack all gaga over young girls.
Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough Is Enough, an Internet safety organization, said that considering Stickam’s ties to pornography, children and their parents should exercise caution when using the site. “This is just another adult operator looking for a back door to the youth market,” she said. “For youth without parental understanding and controls in place, this can be dangerous.”
