Show + sites like IAFD:
Looking for a pornstar finder, porn wiki or adult film database? Not everyone who watches porn is a rabid, foaming at the mouth porn addict who stays in his room all day with closed curtains, desperately beating his meat to video after video in the darkness of nothing but the glow of his computer screen. Some of us fancy ourselves porn connoisseurs – enthusiasts of the adult entertainment industry. Do we like a good fap now and then just as much as the next guy? Well, sure. But we aren’t fiending for it every second of every day. We appreciate porn as an art form, a legitimate means of expression and we respect the actresses, actors, directors, and producers who make it possible.
We, of course, still have our favorite porn studios and sites that we go to when we are in need of a wanking, but we also like to keep abreast of the happenings in the adult entertainment world. So, we have the sites that we go to for porn news, and we have the sites that we go to for porn. Sure, the news sites sometimes lead us to new videos, girls, and scenes that we haven’t heard of before – which is always an added bonus – but we mainly go to our news sites to learn more about our favorite girls and studios … we like to stay in the loop.
Which is why we go to sites such as IAFD. IAFD, or the Internet Adult Film Database is essentially the IMDB of the adult entertainment world aka porn IMDB. It is a database of adult films, actors, and actresses, but it so much more than that as well. It is also a resource for adult video news, useful resources for all things adult entertainment, a regularly updated blog with fascinating articles, and a place to read adult film reviews. You won’t be able to actually watch any porn on IAFD. But that’s okay, you will be linked to sites from which you can purchase the movies found in the database (or any halfwit web surfer can find free versions with just a little bit of tact and know-how).
Simple (but Effective) Site DesignThe site’s design is nothing too amazing. They have opted for a simple white background with black text down the center of the page. To the left, you will find, interestingly enough, a list of porn stars who were born today (in case you feel like wishing them a happy birthday by cumming to them). Below that list, you will find a box dedicated to the Top 10 New Web Scenes, Most Recently Added and the Top 10 New Gay Scenes, Most Recently Added.
On the right side of the page, there are a few more list-containing boxes: Top 10 Actresses by Pages Viewed, Top 10 Titles by Pages Viewed, Top 10 Web Scenes by Pages Viewed, Top 10 Actors, Top 10 Reviews, Top 10 Galleries, and Top 10 Directors. These easy to access top 10 lists make it really easy for anyone to get a good sense of who’s who and what’s what in the adult film industry. They also provide some very useful insights into what is trending at the moment … not to mention some great recommendations of girls, scenes, and directors to check out.
Dead center of the home page is a news feed which posts directly from the IAFD blog, keeping users up to date both with the happenings of the adult industry and IAFD itself. Here, you will find articles on the 2019 AVN Awards, the most prolific performers in porn, and a sprawling list of solid Christmas porn (broken into categories of straight, gay, and trans).
At the very top of the home page, you will find a helpful and easy to use site menu bar. Here, you can choose between Home, Updates (dropdown: New Movies, New Reviews, New Headshots, New Performers), Services (dropdown: Advanced Search, the IAFD Interviews, Blog, Searching Tips, FAQ, Random Performer), Reviews, Resources (dropdown: Birthdays, Astrology, Search Distributors, Search Studios, Glossary, Vendor Info, Remembering Peter [a tribute to late IAFD curator, Peter Van Aarle], Adult Movie FAQ, and Dead Porn Stars. Although there is no porn on IAFD, the adult movie database, there is clearly more than enough to keep you busy.
Paying Homage and Some Compellingly Fun FeaturesThe people behind porn are especially important to IAFD, as is evidenced by all of the tributes and dedications to them to be found on the site. Not only does IAFD seem concerned with giving the porn stars, directors, and producers of today the respect that they deserve, they also are interested in making sure that the deceased porn stars of the past are able to live on, that they are not so easily forgotten just because they are no longer fucking on camera. These people still dedicated their lives to providing a service that makes a lot of people happy, and, so, they should never be forgotten. IAFD helps ensure that their legacy lives on. If porn does anything in the way of dehumanizing, IAFD is here to rehumanize the objects of our lustful affections.
But there are some fun features to be enjoyed on IAFD as well. The Birthday and Astrology sections can be fascinating to check out. Find porn stars who share your birthday and see if you have any special connection to the way they fuck! Or simply search an archive of porn stars by astrological sign. Maybe you’ve always had a thing for Scorpios (apparently one of the more sexual signs of the zodiac), thanks to IAFD, now you can easily browse models for just Scorpio porn stars. Gotta love that Astrology.
Another thing that IAFD has going for it that you’d be hard-pressed to find on any other site is their thorough and awesome advanced search. Here you will be able to find whatever it is you’re looking for. We’ve all been there before, we come across a video online at some point and we can’t remember what it was called, the name of the girl in it, or what studio produced it.
Before, it seemed like all that you could do about it was to post to a forum or a comments section somewhere hoping that some kind soul out there, some friendly pornoholic would get back to you with the answer to the question ‘what fucking video was that?!’ Well, now, thanks to IAFD’s extremely convenient advanced search feature, you don’t have to rely on the hope that someone else will help you out. This service will definitely help you narrow down your search.
You can search by part of the title that you remember (if applicable). You can also search by ethnicity, heritage, hair color, debut year, birth year, retirement year, even tattoo. That’s right, there is an entire search engine that allows you to search by tattoo keyword. Cool, right? In addition to all of these, you can search by rare sex acts (shaved, fisting, squirt, cream pie, DDP, DAP, pee, golden shower, interracial, or auto-fellatio. The best part about the advanced search is that you can select just one of these categories to be applied to the search, or you can adjust all of them and get a super-specific search result – it’s up to you.
FAQ for Anyone Interested in the IndustryWith the help of sister site Rame.com, IAFD’s list of adult film FAQ are also extremely helpful – particularly for anyone who is interested in possibly pursuing a career in porn (AKA every man in the world). Here, you can find insightful answers to questions like “How can I become a porn star?” “What goes on backstage?” and “Do porn stars tend to like their work?” There are some great resources to be found for any of you would-be budding porn stars. Read up a little bit on how the industry works before you fly out to your audition with Brazzers.
There are no limits to what you can do and learn on IAFD. It is a great resource and should be a required companion site for every self-proclaimed porn connoisseur out there. Learn more about the porn scenes you love, track down some really obscure titles, finally find that scene that you saw once and haven’t been able to find again, discover new hotties, movies, and studios to get off to, and pay homage to the fallen porn stars of the past.
It’s great to see a site that is both respecting the people behind the porn industry, as well as providing an unparalleled archive of porn films, actresses, actors, and resources for those who are interested in breaking into the industry. IAFD is as entertaining as it is informative, and I highly suggest you check it out, even if you aren’t a porn connoisseur or interested in becoming a porn star – at the end of the day it is always a good thing to know a lot about your interests, and IAFD (often misspelled as "iafdb") will help you catapult to porn buff status in no time.
