Offbeatr is a US website for crowdfunding pornography. It has been described as “Kickstarter for porn”. Project creators post pitches for new projects. Projects may be media, events or objects. The user community gets to vote on projects. If a project gets enough votes, it’s open for funding. If a project meets its goal, then the project creator gets the funds. Users must be 18 years of age or older. Project creators can also sell previously created material. Projects must be based in either United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, France, Australia, or New Zealand. Offbeatr is developing its own payment platform. The commonly available platforms by Amazon payment and PayPal do not allow payment for pornography. Offbeatr was launched in August 2012 by the Los Angeles based start-up Extra Lunch Money. The two founders are Ben Tao and Eric Lai. The site was programmed by Barry C. As of August 2012 it had a team of five and was self-funded. [1] [2] [3]

As of February 14, 2013, over $70,000 in pledges had been funded in seven projects, mostly relating to furry fandom.[4]

At 9:27PM Eastern Time, Fenoxo's project ended - raising a total of $193,771, a new record for Offbeatr.

On August 25, 2013, Offbeatr achieved another milestone - surpassing $500,000 USD in successful pledges. To date, 21 projects have been successfully funded.
