Why does IMDB make it so dfficult to search for an adult title?

They are on here but it's difficult to get to them. I usually have to google the title to get linked to the IMDB page. Can't even do an advanced search just for adult titles.

In the right hand column of a search results page, in the Additional Search Options box, there will be a link that says "Enable adult titles/names in your searches."

Many, if not most users, prefer not to have porn titles show up in their search results. Having porn titles show up at work would definitely make IMDb Not Safe For Work (NSFW). In addition, there are IMDb users under the age of 18.

As documented on the site, adult titles do not turn up by default in search results due to the likelihood that the title will contain words/topics that some users may find objectionable.  This is by design and is not going to change. The content is there and is searchable if you opt-in by clicking on the 'Enable adult titles/names" option on the search page.
