Sex.com Aims To Be Pinterest For Porn (Which Could Be Good For Us?)

Apparently social media darling du jour Pinterest has spawned a host of imitators, only instead of showcasing cupcake recipes and cute wedding shoes they’re showcasing Nycki, Julisa and “hot nasty lesbians munching pussy in bed.” Welcome to Sex.com, Snatchly and Pornterest (NSFW, obviously).

Sex.com (the most expensive domain ever purchased) was recently revamped with a user interface nearly identical to Pinterest’s. On the homepage, you can sort by “most popular,” “latest pins,” “videos only,” or an assortment of categories including amateur, fisting, ass, emo, bukkake and big dick. The “about” section touts Sex.com’s virtual pinboards as a way for you “to gather, organize and share” all the free porn you find on the web.

“You also get to browse pinboards created by other users! Pinboard surfing is a great way to discover new pictures, videos, porn sites and pornstars from people who share your taste.”

People like … Steve, who “uses Sex.com to bookmark videos (so) .. he will never lose that precious clip he found last night, or even last month,” and Jack, who “only pins the most amazing brunettes, MILFs and sex amateurs.” Or there’s Jerry & Val, who upload “home videos” to Sex.com because they’re “part of an online swingers community who love to watch and be watched.”

So, that’s fun. There’s something a little bit creepy in the site’s aggressively nonchalant language and overuse of exclamation points, but the user interface/design of the site is so drastically better than most porn aggregators that … I kind of like it? One of the things that’s always intimidated or turned me off porn aggregators or sites is that you’re bombarded with popups, videos and the kind of graphic triple penetration photos that offend my ladylike sensibilities (not to mention layout that offends my design sensibilities). Sites like Sex.com that look nice and let users easily curate what they are and aren’t exposed to could actually draw in more women users, which is pretty cool.
