You can report content that you think is offensive

Filtering offensive content from SafeSearch will remove almost any sexual content from the results page. However, there’s a chance that you’ll find some unwanted content that Google hasn’t discovered yet. If you want to delete results while searching, Google allows you to do that too.

Google provides an offensive content reporting portal for SafeSearch to make SafeSearch more trustworthy. You can visit the Report SafeSearch page and submit the URL that needs to be re-verified to show up in SafeSearch Mode. Once Google deems it unnecessary, the content will never be displayed in any SafeSearch mode search results.
