HOW CAN ADULT DATING MAKE A LOSS!??! must be hitting them even harder than most people thought.

The casual dating market is huge - it converts the best, retains members for the longest and has the largest market - their target market is basically people that like sex, a rather considerable demographic!!

This is a huge opportunity for FriendFinder's competitors - if they're struggling and need to reign in their marketing budget then it'll make it much easier for other casual sites to pick up traffic,



The loss is attributable to the interest on the rather large debt on their books (which is how they financed the buyout last year).

The operating profit was ~17 million.

I think the debt is from the amount of money Caligua lost in the theater way back when, and are using FriendFinder as a way to not make it seem so.

I mean, Bob Guccione is like a dirty Hugh Hefner.
