Porn Search Engine Search.xxx Launches to Make .xxx Browsing Safer
[ Search]

If your daily porn searches have led you to some of the more sketchy, unsafe places on the internet, a new search engine may be of interest to you. It’s called Search.xxx, and it’s the world’s first comprehensive search engine for all the .xxx domain porn sites out there.

We first told you about search.xxx when it was still in development, back in June of 2011. At that time, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) had just approved the .xxx top-level domain in a highly-contested split vote. The .xxx domain had been fought by conservative groups like the Family Research Council and by the porn industry itself at first. But when it was finally approved, registry operator ICM Registry won the opportunity to manage it.

And now it’s ICM Registry who has just unveiled the new porn-only search engine. Search.xxx promises that it’s safe and optimized for mobile. In fact, all of the .xxx sites crawled by the engine are scanned every day for malware, using McAfee software. Search.xxx is also available in 20 languages and customizable based on sexual orientation.

Search.xxx does not list traditional .com porn sites, only .xxx sites, which first went live back in December of 2011. So you won’t be seeing any links to YouPorn or PornHub on this search engine.

Upon review, the search engine works as expected, with searches generating only .xxx links. Users can change the language and sexual orientation preferences from the SERPs, which also include a “quick search” feature featuring popular porn terms that you may be familiar with.

When the engine was first announced, ICM Registry President Stuart Lawley mentioned ads and sponsorships. There are currently no ads on search.xxx – either traditional or within the results (at least they aren’t clearly marked). Of course, that could change with time, as the engine was just unsheathed.

So, why do we need a special search engine for .xxx domains? ICM thinks that the exclusivity and safety is a big draw. Of course, adult site searchers can’t always rely on engines like Google or Bing to provide the results they want – as those sites’ relationship with porn is tenuous, at best. Search.xxx, on the other hand, is definitely tailored to its crowd.

“While some search engines reportedly de-rank adult sites in order to filter adult content out of regular searches, our new search engine helps consumers accurately find and enjoy all manner of porn – because it searches only .XXX domain-based porn,” said ICM.

The new search engine is just barely off the ground, but will undoubtedly become more relevant as .xxx domains continue to pop up on the internet.
