Ex-Googler's Sexy Search Engine Will Help You Trawl Tumblr for Porn

By Kate Knibbs on at

Searching for porn on the internet just got easier (not that it was hard before).

Boodigo, a porn search engine created by porn producer Colin Rowntree and ex-Google programmers, filters out the web's non-sexy content to get you exactly what you're looking for. No more pictures of old brass instruments when you search for rusty trombones. Boodigo goes straight for the gutter.

This isn't the first porn-only search engine. Of course not! There's PornMD, where you can filter your search results into three categories: straight, gay, and "shemale." There's Fapdu (NSFW) and SearchXXX. What makes Boodigo stand out isn't the idea, but how it's executed. Boodigo, smartly, allows people to directly search Tumblr as well as the wider web.

Tumblr is mostly known for fandom and teen fashion blogs, but it's also home to a huge porn blogging community. When Yahoo bought it, Tumblr tried to clean up its act, and made it hard for people to search for explicit content. This pissed a lot of people off, but it didn't really change Tumblr's reputation as a great place to find porn. Boodigo has a special tab that lets you search Tumblr's obnoxiously obfuscated porn tags.

Rowntree's product may help dig up the dirty stuff, but he wants Boodigoo to be an ethical porn hub: No pirated porn allowed. Boodigo blacklists tube sites known to host pirated content. And Boodigo wants its users to feel comfortable indulging in their weirdest sex searches, so it won't track your movements:

Boodigo does not use cookies or other user-tracking technologies to gather information about our users. We aren't interested in building a "profile" on our users; our core mission is simply to help you find what you're looking for in a way that's as efficient, effective and enjoyable as possible. In other words, using Boodigo means finding what you're looking for without having to worry about what someone else might be finding out about you.

Aw, Boodigo. I wish non-porn-exclusive search engines had the same kind of policy towards user tracking! [Betabeat]
