KSEX, also known as, KSEXradio, was an online radio station which discussed topics on sex and pornography, and was one of the only adult Internet radio stations specializing in news and current events in the United States pornography industry. The current company is a successor to the original broadcaster.
Original radio company
Originally run out of a garage in the San Diego area, Ksex radio was purchased by a group that used to own the CyberSynergism affiliate program and content provider. It was managed by voice actor and radio personality Wayne C. Lewis, who uses the on-air name Wankus (who was later made part owner), a name he used also in mainstream when he played the part of Prowl in the Fox hit, Transformers: Robots in Disguise. Wankus was fired from the station publicly while on air in May 2007.
The original KSEX included a variety of broadcast radio programs hosted by various "PJs", mostly established porn stars. One notable PJ is porn actress Sunset Thomas. KSEXradio was purchased by Ultimate Entertainment Group (UEG) in 2006. On February 4, 2008, KSEX was shut down.
In April 2008, adult entertainment site Rude.com occupied the studio space and some of the KSEXradio crew, launching RudeTV as an adult internet television channel with similar programming to KSEX. They revamped the space as a TV studio and hired Wankus as program director and main host, along with Powder and Soxxx who had also worked at KSEX. Several new shows have been added to the lineup, such as Ink Addicts, a tattoo speciality focused program. Rude TV has since ceased operations from the former KSEX studios.
Ksex Radio II
A direct successor program was developed in the original URL which rebroadcasts the original programs as well as some new broadcasts. But the amount of new content is very limited compared to the original company's amount and broadcasts are only part-time during the regular week with no weekend broadcasts at all.
