KungFuJunkie: Because I have such a difficult time finding porn on the internet.... Is there a bet on when porn on the internet will surpass the 50% mark of all content on the internet, or has it already happened?


It's never been less than 50%. The internet was invented for porn.
 
2012-12-12 09:04:14 PM
Now I'm going to have to add "naked" to all my searches.

Just in case.
 
2012-12-12 09:04:21 PM
Sounds like if I search for "tits" I still get tits, but if I search for "little red riding hood" I don't get porn.

I don't see the problem here.
 
2012-12-12 09:04:45 PM
you just may need to be more explicit in your query if your search terms are potentially ambiguous.

C'mon, I just want to fap to it, I don't want to have to talk about it. It was working fine when my search terms were how about a little somethin' somethin' or yeah Google you know what I like you nasty minx.

If I have to be all explicit and properly format it like site:http://trannymidgets.com vintage bdsm "age 40..60" -"herve villechaize" it takes me out of the mood.

I just noticed that Bing's "nice tits" has a lot better results than Google's "nice tits" all of a sudden.

Maybe Bing is good for something after all.

Peki: Sooooo. . .

Anyone got info on a good search engine that isn't run by a douchebag company?


duckduckgo

They don't build personal search filters, so if you call a friend and say 'search for spam duck heritage overture' they will get exactly the same results as you.

They also don't track, so you don't see ads for Taylor Swift popping up on the computer you share with your kid. Or your kid won't see ads for BBC cuckolds I guess.

Moved over to DuckDuckGo.com and haven't looked back.


Sorry, I didn't notice you had it covered.

Shrinkwrap: Combined with the "improved" search filters (let's get rid of exact image size searches!), this is turning into a pile of suck.


And the dilution of quotes... adding in "or" if your search returns no results as an "and" query.

Remember when google was a raw interface for geeks?

I think it's the other way around...

Actually if you search for tits you don't get tits, well, not naked ones anyway. It's basically what you used to get if you had safe search turned on.
 
2012-12-12 09:12:54 PM
I noticed this today also.
Now if you do a search for a porn star, you have to add "porn" or something similar after the name to get to the good stuff.
Safe Search is now ON BY DEFAULT, even if you have it turned off.
This blows.
Why can't they give you an option to have it OFF by default?
Don't they know that the internet is for porn?

But how will I find SFW pics of "jizz?"

2012-12-12 09:15:42 PM

that was my nickname in highschool: Hopefully someday they can make separate filters for gay and straight pr0n.


Want straight porn? Add "porn" to your query.

Want gay porn? Add "gay" instead.

Works pretty well from what I can tell.

/searching for "cock" gets you lots of roosters
//searching for "gay cocks" gets you so much more
///slashies come (giggity) in threes

I think the complaint is that "naked" is just way too hard to type with one hand.

WhippingBoy: I think it's the other way around...


I was trying to say if you're either not logged in to a google account, or leave it logged in to the same account while multiple people share a computer. Those were extreme examples, but at home I know when my wife is suddenly about to buy a new purse or when the kid has been super interested in pokemon, without checking the history.

Search for the cover of Metallica's "Load" album.

So, can't you just... turn off Safe Search?

Or am I missing the joke behind the outrage?
 
2012-12-12 09:18:15 PM
why don't people just remember their preferred site for the content that they want? I get annoyed when at work I search for something seemingly benign like "beach fill" which is a common thing for me to do and I get lots of other kinds of beach fills. Just not the one I'm looking for.

/red tube is not that hard to remember
// any better ones?
 
2012-12-12 09:18:29 PM
Great.  Now how the bloody hell am I supposed to "accidentally" look at porn all day?
 
2012-12-12 09:19:54 PM
Bing Images... still works
Yahoo Images... still works

Yeah, it's still not hard to find porn.

If you are having trouble finding porn on the internet, you aren't looking for porn.

*yawn*

mikdeetx: In other news, Tumblr is down, leaving thousands without a date tonight.


The Tumblrs I follow aren't... but then again, most of them won't pass any SafeSearches.
 
2012-12-12 09:24:00 PM
F*ck you, Google. I use Google extensively at work to do background investigations on people and companies, and I have never once accidentally found porn, despite some really weird search strings.

It's more like adding an extra word every time you want to search for explicit images. All turning SafeSearch "off" does is allow you to see explicit images.

For example, and going back to my "cock" searches I mentioned:

*searching for "cock" gets you lots of roosters
*searching for "gay cocks" gets you so much more
*searching for "gay cocks" with SafeSearch on gives you PG-13 images again, though more on topic with gay themes (i.e., no roosters).

Replace "cock" with any query of your choice and "gay" with "straight" or "porn" for hetero images (if that's what you're into). Searching "tits" with SafeSearch on gives you "The word "tits" has been filtered from the search because Google SafeSearch is active." Turn SafeSearch off, you get in-shirt breasts, but nothing exposed. Add "porn" or "straight" to get the real deal (or fake deal, I guess).

2012-12-12 09:39:46 PM
Problem with the new search results is that it returns ONLY explicit content, not a mix of everything that it finds.
 
2012-12-12 09:39:57 PM
Oh, GOD, it the Pornageddon!
Does Google not understand how hard it is to turn safe-search off with one hand? Millions if not Billions of hours of jerking it will be lost in the outrageously time-consuming process,
Wait a second, people still jack it to pics???

Amen. Just like my cable service (we're old, not hip) that censors and bleeps broadcasts to a two adult household. Sometimes I feel life is not worth living.


Never ever watch Blazing Saddles on cable. Not worth the effort.
