Gnaughty – Fast and Easy Porn Downloader

November 15, 2009

Seen on the FTP-master New feed: Gnaughty, Fast and Easy Porn Downloader.

Gnaughty is a program to automatically download adult sex content, i.e. porn movies and pictures, from a known internet porn directory.

Providing a friendly interface, users who feel like having some porn can have it served fastly and directly to their desktop.

This is deeply fascinating for a lot of reasons. Central to all of them is the fact that pornography, being taboo, is nevertheless a fairly important part of the computing experience for many users. As a result, the market is underserved by companies who can’t address the topic without breaking the taboo — a constraint that "the open source community" can address because there is no company.

Other interesting, related topics include bug 283578, about the hot-babe package and how gnaughty contributes/discontributes to the ongoing discussion about sexism in open source; the role of Sourceforge in this whole process; how the name "gnaughty" relates to the taboo nature of its own function; and the charming perspective-altered screenshot that shows on the Sourceforge page.
