Google A change to anything related to Google Search - the product so many of us rely on - is never going to go by unnotoced. This time around, Google has altered Image Search for US users to alter the way it handles that ever so important aspect of the web - adult content.

But what if someone clearly shows their intent by, for example, searching "blowjob?" You can't get much more exact in what you want to search for unless you try the more scientific term "fellatio." In either search, you will get next to nothing relevant to the search query and there is nothing in the options to correct this.

Try typing "pussy" and not only will you not see what most adult men think about when they think of the word pussy, you won't even get any pictures of cats! What a joke. Failing "titties," even typing "nipples" will bring up next to nothing. I don't use Google to look up porn myself (there are much better sites and ways of obtaining it), but I have always been 100% against censorship.

If the religious people don't want to view this stuff, fine, but to be pushing this censorship onto everyone that uses the U.S. Google search site to search is bullshit. There is not even an option to get rid of this offensive behavior. If there was (as there in fact was before this crippling update), there would be no problem.
