Bang Bros is an internet production company of pornography operating out of Miami, Florida, founded in 2000. Although the company is headquartered in Miami, some scenes are filmed in Los Angeles. The network includes a total of 36 websites, only sixteen of which are regularly updated as of June 2012. The oldest active websites are AssParade, BangBus, BigMouthfuls, BigTitsRoundAsses, MonstersofCock, and TugJobs.[2]

In 2007, Bang Bros generated a sales total of $1.9 million.[3] Since 2008, however, its daily page views have descended, as well as its daily traffic rank trend.[4]

Legal issues[edit]

BangBros Inc was sued by the U.S. government in June 2005 for violating the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) Adult Labeling Rule and federal CAN-SPAM Act.[5] The company failed to follow the rule that requires commercial e-mailers of sexually explicit material to use the phrase "sexually explicit" in the subject line. The company settled the lawsuit for $650,000, and also agreed to allow its operations to be monitored to ensure that it will comply with the law in the future. It has been reported that the company did not actually send out the emails, but is still liable because they hired third parties to do so on their behalf.[6]
