AskJolene is an excellent starting point for surfing the adult web. However, you will notice sooner or later that there are people out there that are so desperate for a visit from you that they will use any means to persuade you, including:
- misrepresenting the contents of their sites
- bombarding you with pop-ups
- hijacking your browser and surfing it to the wrong places
- installing viruses and other malicious software on your computer
We’ve taken a number of precautions to keep the search engine free from galleries that do such things.
- Daily automated scans of all galleries in the database
- Manual checks on reports of abuse
- A blacklist of offending sites
These precautions go a long way in offering you the safe and carefree experience that you may expect from a grown-up, adult service. However, this behaviour is a mounting problem when surfing the adult web, and you are bound to run into it somewhere.
You know you’re in trouble when…
- half the pages you surf to have pop-ups
- you keep ending up on see-these-hot-chicks-blablabla.com
- pages offer you to install “a small plug-in”
- pressing cancel will not help
- your computer becomes so slow that only a reboot will help
Don’t blame us, blame the guys who make this trash. So stop whining, and start protecting yourself. Here are some tips.
Tip 1. Use another browser
As an alternative to Explorer you should consider FireFox. FireFox is fast, safe and free. Moreover, there are a lot of goodies for FireFox that make surfing porn easier. Visit Pornzilla for an overview.
Yet another alternative is Opera, which may be downloaded without charge and offers tons of exceptionally awesome features.
Tip 2. Always use the latest version of your browser
Always use the latest version of your browser. Many malicious programs exploit known security holes in browser software. These holes usually get fixed in later releases.
Tip 3. Use Windows? Use Update!
If you use Microsoft Windows, remember to update your computer with Microsoft’s security patches and updates.
Tip 4. Get protection
There is software that can prevent malicious software from installing, and helps you with removing it if you’re infected.

Spybot Search & Destroy

Tip 5. Help us fight the bad guys
We’re committed to the fight against spam. Help us keep the blacklist up to date. If you encounter a gallery in the search engine that is infected, please report it.
Tip 6. Detection script
Most parasites target Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Andrew Clover wrote a neat script that detects a lot of them. If you want to know more about parasites, be sure to visit his excellent webpage on the subject.
