New "unsafe" image search engine
I've developed an image search website with a simple concept. It uses other search api's, which offer both "safe" & "full" searches. The user enters a name or search string, and the site performs both the safe & full searches; then removes the images that are returned by both, leaving just the results filtered out by the "safe" search; that is, just the images that are "unsafe".
It also has a "spin the wheel" feature, where it searches on some random female celebrity name to see what turns up.
I'd love some feedback on the design, the functionality, and suggestions for other ways to improve it.
The site is: riskysearch.com
Let me know what you think.

The concept is a lot of fun for perverts like myself. The design definitely leaves something to be desired. Take a page out of google's book. Simple is better. I'd say put the ads by google from the top and put them on the side because I simply mentally skip the text ads at the top and it greatly subtracts from the aesthetics. The search box needs to have more concentration on the page and the information about what the website is and some tips need to be less intrusive. I'm no expert, but that's my perception from a user standpoint. I do like it though, this is gonna be perfect for getting my wallpaper's for my phone.

Really interesting concept. Well done. Brought back "Clara Morgane"
As already mentioned, aesthetically there remains lots to do. Work on the header - center it? Don't know...looks empty at times, but love the concept and might be back later...who knows...LOL

Well, some of that empty space was occupied by google adsense, but they took it down because someone searched for "young p*n*s", and I guess that triggered google's "unsuitable content" rule.

Does anyone know any other adsense-like programs that are not so picky?
