Benjamin Cohen - one-time teenage "dotcom millionaire" - is pulling out of the porn business.

He's decided to sell his two XXX search engines, dotadults.com and hunt4porn.com, because they are a drain on resources.

Cohen reckons both sites are real goers, for the right person, but he doesn't want to do it himself.

Instead, he wants to concentrate on his CyberBritain business, which is currently undergoing "a major restructure".

He's more interested in "data marketing" over email and SMS, having recently launched numbermatch.com, an online mobile lottery that it uses to gather data.

According to Cohen, a number of people are already sniffing around his porn sites so potential buyers need to be quick.

Cohen enjoyed his 15 minutes of dotcom fame after he set up SoJewish.com, which was valued during the dotcom boom at $5 million.

It was eventually sold to rival TotallyJewish, netting him £215,000 for his share.

He then started portal CyberBritain and his controversial porn search engines. He was also featured in TV programme Trouble at the Top. ®
