    Hey guys, I want to buy a domain name to redirect to my adult affiliate link.

    Should I be worried about having the word "Sex" or "Sexy" in my domain name? as like HotSexDate.com for example?

    Or doesnt it matter?

    You should be just fine with it unless you are in some strict Muslim country.

    It is totally fine though. Actually having these sex or sexy words in your domain can attract more traffic towards your site. You know how people think and perceive things, right? People are more curious on titles that have these words in your domain. So you need not to worry much.

    It all depends on what network you are promoting. Just read each networks policies. Some allow it , some don't, most don't care about the referring domain.

    I think you'll be fine. i think what you're worrying about is things that are more vulgar like "tits" or "dicks". Having sex in there seems safe.

    same rules of SEO would apply. Some advertisers might not like/want it, but other than that, you are good to go friend :)

    Some sites like tagged.com won't allow the word sex in the URL, amongst a few others.
    Most people associate things like "sex" in a domain with spam I think, I always try make my domains sound "nicer" to boost the trust factor.... that's just me though.
