Good News! There’s Now a Flipboard for Porno and It’s Called ‘Faploid’

"When searching for adult content online, you will find a lot of providers."
Literally the most SFW screencap we could come up with.

Literally the most SFW screengrab we could get.

Someone really ought to launch an incubator devoted to sexy clones of popular startups. There’s Birchbox for your box, Kickstarter for porn, and now there’s Faploid, a Flipboard for adult content. Of course there is.

The company (NSFW, obviously) promises to deliver personalized, high-quality adult content to your very own Faploid magazine. And how is that aim achieved, precisely? Through the vague magic of algorithms, of course! According to the website, “Faploid evaluates millions of new adult content every day, looking at the type of article, its key attributes and how it is shared across the web.”

Finally, someone’s come to save us from those terribly tagged, impossible-to-navigate portal sites! Not to mention it’s about time someone cracked the code on mobile porno.

According to a statement from CEO Tony Tillate (you’d be forgiven for accidentally reading that as “titillate”), the company aims to be your technology-enabled smut gatekeeper:

When searching for adult content online, you will find a lot of providers. The “overkill” of online porn is getting worse and it generally takes too much time to find content that fulfils your needs and interests. Also the chance that a virus, harmful or illegal content is downloaded is very high.

The service is currently in closed beta, but we doubt they’ll make you beg for it. This time.
