BoodiGo will provide performer images, biographical info and links to performer profiles on IAFD.com, where surfers can learn more about them, and find links to performersâ€™ official websites, blogs, social media accounts and outlets where their films can be purchased.
â€śThe basic idea behind BoodiGo is to be a search engine that supports the adult industry, not just another search engine that can be used to find porn,â€ť said BoodiGo co-founder Colin Rowntree. â€śIâ€™ve always found IAFD.com to be an excellent resource, and Iâ€™m delighted to have them working with us to ensure that when surfers search for their favorite porn stars, the search responses encourage them to support the performers by going to their official websites and purchasing their work, instead of just watching it for free on a site that may or may not have the rights to the content in the first place.â€ť
The Internet Adult Film Database has been tracking bibliographic information on adult movies at its current home since 1999. With information on more than 171,000 movies from 1959 through present, the IAFD is the most comprehensive database of its kind. Maintenance is provided by a dozen volunteer editors doing their own research assisted by a variety of sources â€” industry professionals, fellow researchers and everyday porn fans. Along with movie listings, IAFD has a price search engine and links to over 113,000 movie reviews from some of the leading review sites on the net.
â€śWe were excited to work with Colin on this project,â€ť said Jeff Vanzetti, webmaster and co-founder of iafd.com. â€śWe knew him by reputation as an AVN Hall of Famer, and we were quite flattered to be asked to be a part of BoodiGo. Now, when folks search for their favorite stars, our biographical info will be right there on the results page along with a way for the fan to find out all the movies that star has been in, and how and where to procure legal copies.â€ť
In addition to the new partnership with IAFD.com, BoodiGo has also announced a collaboration with the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) to block search terms used to seek out child pornography, and a joint effort with PornGuardian to prevent the listing of known piracy sites.
