Cosmo UK Coverage: Ex-Google programmers have made a search engine just for porn Giving the internet what it wants.

The search for porn is a dilemna that has plagued the human race for centuries. Well, what feels like centuries. Basically since the internet was invented and we thought to ourselves ‘hmm, you know what this revolutionary technology would be great for? Masturbation.” And while we have struggled through endless page results, searching for exactly the right thing to scratch a very specific itch, some guys have been working hard to solve our problem and make people’s lives a bit easier.

A porn director/producer, Colin Rowntree, teamed up with some programmers who previously worked for Google, after getting frustrated with the search process for porn. Because it’s really frustrating when you’re feeling a bit worked up, and have to sift through pages of Wikipedia and Urbandictionary when you just want a good porn clip, damnit.

“Mainstream companies that have investors [are] trying to distance themselves completely from adult entertainment,” says Colin to Betabeat. And so porn is made harder to find and less searchable, whether it’s Tumblr preventing you from searching the word “porn” (try it, you won’t get any sexy gifs), or Google placing more ‘appropriate’ pages at the top of search results.
