Some in Paradise Valley, Ariz., aren't happy about a mansion there that's home to Fratpad, an adults-only webcam service, describing it as a "pornography house" that's out of place in their community. But Fratcam's owner says his business is actually a boon to the neighborhood.
Activities at the 7,500-square-foot house came under scrutiny recently when former employee there, Cherr Monroe, told the AZFamily.com in Phoenix that the webcasts from subscription-only Fratpad are "just guys pleasuring themselves. They would walk around naked. That's kind of part of the daily show." Monroe is in a labor dispute with the company that operates Fratpad.
One area homeowner was prompted to send a letter to neighbors encouraging them to get in touch with City Council members about the "pornography house."
"We're not really doing pornography," said Fratpad owner John Marsh. "It's live webcam and very fun and silly."
He acknowledged that "it is adult-oriented," but added that his company has "other website properties that are operated in other locations that are much more sexually explicit than Fratpad."
AZFamily reported that police last summer investigated activities at the house but didn't find any code violations or that Fratpad even required a business license. Marsh told the news site that by renting the large house for years his company has "really saved that house from foreclosure. We've been taking very good care of it."
