Hello my kinky friends. Today I want to spend a few words about a free service that can be very useful every time you want to know detailed information about an adult movie and/or its performers.
I’m talking about the Internet Adult Film Database, an online database of information about the adult industry, covering actors, actresses, directors and porn movies. It is similar to the Internet Movie Database, in that it is open to the public and is searchable. Yet another who think that information should be handy and free. True Internet philosophy, people like them make the Internet a so great place.
The Internet Adult Film Database, founded in 1995 by Peter van Aarle, is the premier resource for information about the American porn community on the web. At today their database is covering over 132,000 titles and over 121,000 performers and directors, making it the biggest resource of this kind. Everything is maintained by a volunteer staff of editors. The site costs, which must be relevant, are paid by sponsors for ad banners and by affiliate commission from products purchased via their site. The full history of the project, with more details and curiosities, can be found on Wikipedia.
In February 2013, by going through all the data made available on the database, Jon Millward released his analysis titled Deep Inside: a study of 10,000 porn stars and their careers, a massive infographic that looks at the truth about what the average performer looks like, what they do on film, and how their role has evolved over the last forty years.
