As Rare As A Stylish Mullet

blue-moon

On our Advanced Search page we have a “Sex Notes Search” which gives you a list of movies or performers which feature certain rare sex acts – things like Fisting, Squirting, DPP or DAP.

We were asked why we don’t include more “mundane” sex acts in that list, and the answer is because they’re ubiquitous, so returning a list of 10,000 performers who did a DP really isn’t that useful.

BUT, through some discussions (Thanks, Mike!) we looked at it a different way – instead of showing all performers who did a certain act; perhaps filter it down by rarity… so welcome – Performer Rarities!

rarityLet’s explain – the FACIAL is the Pidgey of the porn world.  They’re everywhere.  (Go Team Valor!)  But there are some performers, sometimes referred to as “Cum Dodgers”, who eschew the practice – so perhaps there’s some interest in seeing when these performers couldn’t or didn’t dodge.

So, we ran the numbers – we take the number of movies a performer took a facial in, divide it by the number of movies in that performer’s career, and we get their Career Facial Percentage.

It’s important to note here, that this is just the number of MOVIES that they took a facial in.  A simple boy/girl scene and a 100 Guy Gangbang count the same – once.

So, who is the rarest of them all? In the facial category, Felecia is the winner; having taken only a single facial in 499 movies, or a CFP (Career Facial Percentage) of 0.20%.  This stands to reason as she was primarily a g/g performer, and the other people with the lowest CFP are similarly g/g performers who occasionally crossed over to the b/g side.

The IAFD Randomizer

randomizerEvery so often we get tweeted at (@iafdcom) with a question about functionality or people mis-remembering functionality…

This week was no exception, and we got this in the feed:

We never had such a thing.

Well, until now.

It’s silly and completely mindless.

It’s also available under the SERVICES menu item.

The Boolean Filters Are Back!

Boolean

In keeping with our “roll it out, then fix it” style that we learned from Facebook, we’re happy to announce that the boolean filters AND/OR/NOT are back in action on the performer page.

We’re aware of an issue when you hit the back button, the filters are still checked off, but the filter itself is removed.  We’re looking into it; we’re not sure if it’s a bug in the component we’re using to display the tabular data, or something we’re not handling correctly.

See them in action!
