The best search engine to search for porn, simply because it has a videos section. All you have to do is type in the name of a porn site, and instantly ypu are given TONS of sample clips from that site. Great stuff

A good search engine, that while not as great as google in searching regular pages, has the ability to search for sound and movie files.
Do you really need one!?
