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.

You ever go online and think, Wow, there’s just not enough access to adult material here? Yeah, us neither.
In any case, a Los Angeles startup, Boodigo (yeah, Boodigo), announced this week that it has launched as “the first adult-oriented search engine that takes users straight to the online action … with no tracking, registration, cookies or hassle.”

LOS ANGELES – Here’s an innovative idea: A search engine that tracks only adult websites. Plain wrapper, no frills… In fact, the product looks much like Google, except without the fancy, ever-changing Google logo.
Lord knows the internet another search engine.
According to a statement from the developers, “Boodigo is 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 lightning-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 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,” the statement added.
We’d snort at the whole idea, except one of the founders of the new search experience is the redoubtable Colin Rowntree, an online adult industry pioneer who’s been working in the internet space since dirt was young.
