FurriesXtreme, also known as FX, is a furry-themed adult-rated social networking site. Its sister site, Furry 4 Life, is G-rated. Shy Matsi Lupine created the site using the open-source Dolphin platform.

The mascot of FurriesXtreme is an adult husky named Boxtor "Boxty" Huskie.[1]

History[edit]

Shy started the site in November of 2008. FurriesXtreme was originally built using Ning, a service that allows one to create their own social networking site. FurriesXtreme was built to answer the need of users who wanted a social network for adults.

One month later, Ning announced that it was ending support for adult social networks on their platform. In order to keep the community going, Shy moved the site to the SocialGo Platform for adult networks, Zocku, where for over a year, it was thriving.

Due to rising costs of this platform, Shy looked for more solutions and then moved it onto his own server. Using Dolphin, a BoonEx open-source software solution, FurriesXtreme had a new home.
