Mofos is a pornographic production company focusing on reality pornography.[3]

About[edit]

The Mofos website was created by Brazzers in 2008.[4] The goal was to create videos with simpler storylines, as opposed to Brazzers' videos. The videos would feature lesser-known pornographic actors who would be able to accurately embody the various roles specifically written for reality pornography. The Mofos website was eventually acquired by Manwin in 2010.[5] The online network consists of twenty-two hardcore pornography websites (or sub-networks) along with five series. As of October 2016, Mofos.com has a global traffic ranking of 6,946.[6]

Sub-Networks[edit]

There are over twenty websites operating under the Mofos network.[7] Each site follows different themes and storylines within the reality pornography genre. Themes may include: interracial pornography, public sex, legal-aged teenagers, mature women, etc. The sub-sites are named in order to be able to easily identify said themes without needing much research.

Operations[edit]

Regardless of any explicit themes, Mofos and its subsites are carefully run under the supervision of MindGeek so as to avoid all illegal activities.[8] Mofos is currently owned and operated by Mindgeek, formerly known as Manwin.[9] The name was changed shortly after managing partner, Fabian Thylman, stepped down. Thylman had first acquired the company after purchasing the assets from the original founders. In 2013, he sold his stakes to Feras Antoon and David Tassillo, the senior management of the company.[10] The company then merged with Redtube, a large porn tube site, thus creating MindGeek.[11]
