Adult Film Database
Type of site
Adult Film Database (AFD) is an English-language adult website database that attempts to keep records of all pornographic movies and adult film stars. This includes filmographies, partial biographies, reviews, labeled and categorized adult film stills, as well as a regularly updated adult industry blog which features the latest news about adult performers, movies, directors, studios, web site updates and sundry adult news from around the world.
Founding and synopsis
It was created in 1991 under the name Sodomite by a college student. This was an attempt to fill the void of the temporary absence of the Internet Adult Film Database (IAFD) and as a project in web development. In 1999 its name was changed to the AdultFilmDatabase.com. Today, the AdultFilmDatabase.com is a major competitor to the Internet Adult Film Database.
Taking inspiration from both the Internet Adult Film Database and IMDb and forging ties with industry mainstays like Vivid Entertainment, Hustler, Wicked and Digital Playground the AdultFilmDatabase.com features information on over 100,000 adult movies and 60,000 performers (updated March 2019).
Run by a husband and wife team, the Adult Film Database was the first online adult database to include both straight and gay videos and performers.
In October 2007, the Adult Film Database debunked rumors that legendary adult film performer Tamara Lee (born 30 July 1969) had died from AIDS. The news was covered by Adult Video News (AVN) in an article on October 23, 2007.
