Verizon Looking to Sell Off Tumblr, Pornhub Wants to Buy It and Restore NSFW Content

We previously reported on Tumblr banning all pornographic content from their website. While the platform got quite aggressive in what content it actually did allow, many users fled the service for places like Twitter. Now, parent company Verizon is looking to sell off the company, and Pornhub is seriously looking to buy it and bring back the naughty content.

The news comes via a WSJ report that Verizon is looking to sell off the company, and is actively talking to other companies. The sales process is reportedly “ongoing,” and may never happen. That is, if Pornhub has anything to say about it.

Pornhub VP Corey Price said (via BuzzFeed) that his company is “extremely interested” in buying Tumblr, and “very much looking forward to one day restoring it to its former glory with NSFW content.” The company didn’t confirm if they actually made an offer to Verizon, however.
