AdultSpace [NSFW], an adult social network in the same vein as Adult Friend Finder, has closed a $1.3 million funding round led by a number of angel investors. The new funding brings AdultSpace’s total financing to $2.3 million since its launch in January 2006.
AdultSpace says it is looking to use the money to take on Adult Friend Finder, the leading adult social network that was acquired by Penthouse in 2007 and has filed to go public. The site says it will be upgrading its viral marketing efforts and perhaps most notably, to eventually launch mobile applications across all major platforms (though I suspect they’ll have a hard time getting accepted on at least a few mobile app stores).
Included among AdultSpace’s free features are chatrooms, ‘cams’, a classifieds section, and a personality test that the site claims has the analytical detail of eHarmony’s highly touted exam.
Also notable in the mature social networking space is Zivity, a site that features artful adult photos and a community around the site’s photographers and models. Zivity has raised a total of $8 million in funding, including a $7 million round led by BlueRun Ventures and Founders Fund.
