A team of former Google engineers has designed a search engine just for porn

“Boodigo” might be the best new way to find porn without selling users’ fantasies to advertisers.

If there’s a porn version of everything, there had to be a porn version of Google, right? But of course there is: Meet Boodigo, the Internet search engine specifically for pornographic content, brought to life by a team of “Google refugees” who wanted to forgo the unsexy content that appears in many search results in place of adult entertainment.

There are plenty of reasons to search for porn on Boodigo — besides the obvious convenience of not having to wade through 289 Cosmo articles in your quest for the perfect porno. The site, as I noted earlier, aims to only populate its search results with legal — in other words, not pirated — porn.

As a long-time producer and director, Mr. Rowntree has experienced the hugely damaging effects of porn piracy first-hand. When people share and view adult entertainment without paying for it, “it’s horrible for the performers, for the studios, for everybody,” Mr. Rowntree said. Though he acknowledges that chasing illegal online porn distributors will “always be a cat and mouse game,” he’s certain that Boodigo has “done a very good job at identifying the illegal tube sites.”

“They’re basically just blacklisted from ever getting into the search results,” he said.

Ex-Googlers Help Build ‘Boodigo,’ a New Search Engine Just for Porn
For when Google just isn’t sexy enough.

A couple of years ago, porn producer and director Colin Rowntree started feeling that mainstream search engines, like Google and Bing, where “trying to ghettoize the adult entertainment industry,” as he puts it. Google “blow job,” and you generally have to click through three pages of totally un-sexy content — you know, like a Wikipedia entry on the phrase’s etymology — before you actually arrive at the porn sites you were looking for in the first place.

“It’s this corporate cowardice thing that’s been going on the last several years,” he told me over the phone. “Mainstream companies that have investors [or are] trying to go public [are] trying to distance themselves completely from adult entertainment.”

New Adult Search Engine ‘Boodigo.com’ Debuts

Boodigo Safe Adult Search

LOS ANGELES — A new adult content search engine, Boodigo.com, made its debut this week.

It’s the first adult-oriented search engine that takes users straight to the online action with no tracking, registration, cookies or hassle.

Unlike mainstream search engines that go out of their way to avoid adult-related results, Boodigo delves only into adult-only content at a fast speed, providing customers with more useful answers to their sex and porn-related queries.

Boodigo eliminates search results from sites that are known or potential security threats, ensures that all Boodigo sessions are HTTPS encrypted and works closely with rights-holders to keep unlicensed and illegal content from appearing online, allowing users an enhanced search experience in a safe, private and anonymous setting.

“Boodigo’s search algorithm is designed to find ‘real’ adult sites and give top listings to them,” said Colin Rowntree, one of the founders of the new search engine. “That avoids the problem of going to Google, searching for, say, ‘blowjob,’ and getting the first multiple results pages of Wikipedia articles, women’s magazine how-to guides, etc., before the online user can actually find a link to sites that focus on blowjob photos and movies.”

The search engine also gives weight to name brands in adult.

“If you search for names like Playboy, Penthouse or Vivid, the top listing will be for that studio or company’s website,” Rowntree explained. Similarly, any searches for porn stars by name return top of page links to the performer’s website and social media accounts, rather than illegal tube sites and file share services of stolen content.”
