Boodigo: A Search Engine Specifically for Porn

Historically, looking for porn has been a dodgy endeavor. There’s always been a perceived shameful stigma about smut and the people who search for it. From illegal bootleg films to seedy video stores, the difficulty to obtain, or the judgmental attitude reflected upon its consumers, had made it harder to do so in a relaxed normal fashion.

The Internet may have changed that, to a certain degree. But while porn is quite present on every little online corner, some insiders weren’t too pleased with the way it could (or couldn’t?) be accessed through the most popular search engines.

According to porn producer and director Colin Rowntree, mainstream search engines like Google and Bing had intentionally made it more complicated for users to access the graphic material they were looking for. And although porn is still probably the most sought after thing on the Internet, and it can still be a highly lucrative business, a lot of big companies tend to distance themselves from pornographic references.

Tumblr, for instance, recently had purposely made it a lot harder to find adult material within their own site, even though the place has a significant amount of pornography.

“Google and Bing have gradually been weeding out the industry’s adult content and that (for us) has been tremendously frustrating,” Rowntree told Spain’s EFE news agency in a telephone interview. “If someone is looking for videos of oral sex and tries to find them via Google, what they get is an article by Wikipedia and advice from Cosmopolitan. And when they get what they’re looking for, it can well be pirated material.”

Rowntree, who runs the BDSM website Wasteland, decided to address all these issues by partnering up with west coast tech firm 0x7a69 to develop Boodigo, a search engine specifically designed for adult content, that can help users find non-pirated, virus-free porn that doesn’t use cookies or any other user tracking technologies to gather information about their users, effectively guarding their anonymity.

Several of Boodigo’s programmers are “refugees from Google” who were apparently dissatisfied with the way things were going, and have ignored all Google-related logarithms and written Boodigo’s code from scratch. The result has been a much more safer platform that protects its users from dangers they’ve been constantly exposed to with other search engines.

“Boodigo also proactively eliminates sites from its responses that are known security threats, distributors of malware or perpetrators of fraud, and works with rights-holders to ensure that unlicensed and illegal copies of their creative works are not found in our search results.” They further explained on their website, “This helps ensure that when you download content and materials you find through Boodigo, you’re downloading only what you intended to, free of viruses or spyware, and free of intellectual property concerns, too.”

Boodigo made its official debut on September 15th, and, according to Rowntree, it “has taken off like a rocket.”
