So (says he cynically) - what's easier?  Change a setting on your browser to
view a site, or spend an hour or two downloading and installing the latest
flash / java / other plug-ins, and several re-boots to view a site?

From the FAQ:

"When and how can I use a .sex domain name? 
The .sex domain names are currently being registered for activation in
2002. They will initially be viewed on the Internet by making a slight
alteration to your web browser."

ergo, anybody that wishes to view your domain needs to change a setting.
Additionally, any search engine that wanted to index your domain *under
that domain* would need to do the same thing. And I'm sure that Google
would be quite happy to do that (not!).

Kind of defeats the purpose of the DNS, really: it's far easier for a
client to punch the dotted-quad into their browser than it is for them to
change the settings on their machines :P
