Fancy New Porn Discovery Engine Attempts to Modernise an Age Old Tradition

By Scott Laczay on at

Canadian startup PaintBottle (100-per-cent-certified NSFW), is looking to bring a bit of modern programming and UI design to the online porn world, because, why not? Differentiating itself by providing a slick-looking interface and increased, err, usability, PaintBottle is notably devoid of grating flashing banner ads, and shoves high-quality, properly licensed content front and centre for your enjoyment.

To be fair, what PaintBottle's doing is very much in the trend of better, more modern UI design, the likes of which pretty much any online service worth its salt is currently undergoing. Leaner, meaner, faster, better is the name of the game.

To add a bit of albeit odd grit, PaintBottle is exclusively funded by top high-stakes poker players who have grouped together to invest in the company. I suppose everyone thinks they can repeat 50 Cent's Vitamin Water success. The site has only seen about 20,000 visits so far, but notes a 40 per cent higher time on site compared to other porn havens.  Perhaps it's because they actively keep grungy VHS quality videos out of their domain.

If nothing else, PaintBottle is another access point into the ever-present online porn world.  Up to you to decide if it's worthwhile. [Techcrunch]
