When it comes to searching for adult content, the big search engines don’t always come up trumps – even if you remember to turn off your Safe Search.
Google, Bing and Yahoo might be the most popular search engines in the world and a definite go to when looking for local businesses or travel reviews but their adult content search filters can prevent access to the top sex related sites.
In this guide, we bring you the best adult search engines, whether you are looking for porn, sex toys or kinky connections.
Mainstream Search Engines
Most of the big name search engines use a Safe Search filter to prevent unwanted access to adult content in a bid to protect underage users from accidentally stumbling on explicit images. Whilst this is, of course, admirable turning this filter off doesn’t always allow the best adult content to be ranked. In fact, Google has admitted that users have to be explicit in their search terms in order to find relevant adult content:
“We are not censoring any adult content, and want to show users exactly what they are looking for. But we aim not to show sexually-explicit results unless a user is specifically searching for them. We use algorithms to select the most relevant results for a given query. If you’re looking for adult content, you can find it without having to change the default setting — you just may need to be more explicit in your query if your search terms are potentially ambiguous.”
Unfortunately, Google don’t specify exactly what they mean by ‘ambiguous’ but we’ve all probably found ourselves frustrated when it comes to looking for something specific online only to be thwarted by inappropriate sites with random associations.
And, when you do find appropriate results, oftentimes the same old websites seem to always come to the fore.
So, whilst turning off the Safe Search filter can certainly help improve the results of your default search engine, you may find that you get better results with a dedicated search tool.

Some of the search engines we’ve selected return good image or video results whilst others provide a better all-round service for all your adult content queries. We’ve covered the best of all the search engines to give you the widest choice.

The out and out most popular domain on our list is Sex.com. It offers a hub for searching the internet for adult content in the form of videos, images, games and stories. Definitely NSFW, Sex.com categorises its content and offers a ‘Pin It’ function so you can save your favorite adult content to your own Pinboard.
However, Sex.Com isn’t the most functional of search engines on our site and the name itself is one of the reasons for its popularity. With an estimated value of $13 million, Sex.com ranks in the top 500 websites in the world and receives more traffic than National Geographic and Pixabay in the USA. Popular the world over, Sex.com will always rank highly simply because of its name and is the most valuable adult domain.

Taking a slightly new approach to finding content online, Better Fap isn’t a normal search engine but is more like a social network portal for finding new porn.
You register a profile and choose the kind of adult content you would like to see (photo, video, animated, erotica or audio) along with the sexuality (straight, bi, gay etc) and then either randomise or choose popular search results. You then rate the content you are shown and the more you use the site the better the results from your searches.

A relative newcomer to the adult search markets, Better Fap has grown from the top 60,000 sites in 2016 to the top 15,000 in the world. Most of this traffic comes from the States but its rise in popularity can also be attributed to users in China, Canada, Germany and the UK.

An American owned site, Mr Stiff receives most of its traffic from the US but has also been growing in popularity in Japan and China.
