If pinning scenic views, favorite books, elegant furniture and fine eats isn't doing it for you, now you can go over to a place that is redefining pin-up girls. 

The porn industry made the pin-ups. It's only fitting they cash in on Pinterest.

Combine Pinterest’s addicting image scrolling platform with hardcore pornography, and you’ve got one of the most popular Pinterest clones yet. Snatchly is a pornographic image sharing platform that just launched today, but already has over a thousand users.

We spoke to Snatchly cofounder James Alexander about the launch, which he said was planned “just in time for Valentine’s Day.”

The Los Angeles based cofounder’s goal was to make the most guy-friendly Pinterest clone out there, and he said that wasn’t possible without plenty of porn.

“Pinterest was our inspiration. We wanted to make it more attractive to men and felt that masculine colors and categories such as cigars and cars wouldn't be enough. Guys ultimately need a safe haven for their favorite porn actresses and scenes,” he said.

Apparently Alexander was right. Compare Snatchly’s thousand-user success to another well known Pinterest clone, Gentlemint, that was also designed with men in mind. The latter, which does not allow pornographic images, had fewer than ten users on the day it launched. (It’s worth noting that Gentlemint, unlike Snatchly, is invitation only.)

Browsing Snatchly’s highly NSFW boards, filled with hardcore porn, you may encounter some familiar sounding usernames. Familiar, that is, if you’re up to snuff on popular porn stars. However, Alexander said that since Snatchly is anonymous, there’s no saying who they truly are.

“I can't say for sure that the few public boards already created under the names of famous pornstars are in fact those pornstars. Our users are anonymous and have complete control over what they share,” he said.

Snatchly’s interface is extremely similar to its inspiration. Users can browse an unsettlingly wide list of porn categories—including gay, straight, and even teenage participants—and can add the “Snatch It” button to their browser in order to pin, er, “snatch” clips and images on the go.  

“In the coming weeks we're making it easier to arrange, tag and search your boards and snatches,” said Alexander.

We’ve written before that Pinterest is for everyone to pin whatever they like. But after checking out Snatchly, we’ve decided some pins are better off kept separate.
