Grooby Offers Free Membership Extensions to Those Affected by US Government Shutdown

Follow us on Twitter @PornValleyMedia – Send email to: ContactPVMedia@gmail.com

Chicago – Grooby, the leading producer of trans erotica, is offering free Grooby membership extensions to those affected by the government shutdown in the United States. The company currently owns and operates over 35 membership sites.

“Politics aside, why should working people have to be so affected by something they didn’t create?” says Grooby CEO Steven Grooby. “While adult entertainment is, and should be, lower on people’s priorities than some of their other bills, I don’t think it’s fair that these people have to go without what amounts to small comforts, for no fault of their own. These are people who support us by paying for their porn, so I hope we can support them a little during this time.”

Government workers with existing memberships who have been forced to cancel their Grooby memberships during the shutdown may qualify for a free extension. Those interested in taking advantage of this limited time offer are encouraged to email admin@grooby.com directly with the subject header: Grooby Extension Program.
