Pornhub’s primary purpose is, well, streaming all the porn the public can handle. And usually, that’s a lot of porn. But recently, Pornhub has begun to fashion itself as amateur porn statistician – and why not? With all that data you’re bound to come up with some interesting findings.

Pornhub calls them “Pornhub Insights” and they may have just published the funniest one yet.

Ok, this is just amazing. Pornhub looked at how certain global events – sporting events, big news events, holidays, and TV moments – impacted porn viewing across the world.

“The Pornhub statisticians have been hard at work measuring the impact of various worldwide events on the traffic numbers of the world’s biggest porn site. With over 1 billion monthly visits the amount of data was immense to process and analysis, the result of their long Red Bull fueled nights is the infographic below for your data pleasure. The stats show that people pull themselves away from their favorite website just long enough to watch things like the Olympics, the World Series, Presidential elections etc. We can form this conclusion based upon the actual drops in traffic to Pornhub during these events in different regions throughout the world. We also observed that traffic spikes as soon as the event ends and we’re here to welcome you with open arms,” says Pornhub.

The standout finding? People everywhere really cut back on the porn on Christmas. Well, except for the Japanese – which can’t be all that surprising.

Is it because everyone is too stuffed from rounds 2, 3, and 4 of the family Christmas feast? Is it because people are too busy spending time with extended family to take care of themselves? Probably. Maybe a little bit of Christian guilt? Most likely.

The data for other major events is also fascinating. For instance, during the 2012 Super Bowl, Pornhub’s traffic went down 22% in the U.S. and 41% in Boston specifically.

When Osama bin Laden was confirmed dead, porn viewing went down 7% in the U.S. But when the Mayan calendar ended and everyone thought the world was going to end – porn party! Traffic went up 10%.

I’m presenting this in a rather light manner, but this is some seriously interesting stuff, sociologically. Take a look at Pornhub’s interactive infographic (SFW) and check out how porn was affected by other big events.

    Porn makes the world go round. I don’t think people really understand just how much porn is out there. The funny thing is what people do behind closed doors. There is so much sexting, homemade porn, sending nude pictures via email and phones. Frankly, I don’t care really. I just hate when people are holier-than-thou about it. Most of the people who say they aren’t do anything are lying through their teeth. I read a study regarding the mismatch between what people said they do and what the numbers so via porn sites. Apparently, about a 1/4th of the country admits to watching porn, but according to the data from the porn sites, about 3/4th of the country is watching porn. The crazy thing is that you can just go and look at the millions of pictures out there. Each one with a new couple of faces. That in and of itself proves just how many people are doing it.

    It’s because people are hypocrites, they where just concerned about their destiny. Meaning since the majority of people on Earth are Christians, they had strong feelings as if they continued to sin they would go to hell, but the funny thing is just cause you stop at the last minute doesn’t make you spiritually cleansed, when infact they’ll just continue their pornification after the whole shenanigen ended.

    People are hypocrites, they act as if when they do things in the last minute,hour, day, month, whatever, that they’ll be saved. This will just cause you more likely to sin since you’ll have this attitude as if you have forever to sin and get away with it, when the truth is your never getting away with God. He will always punish the wicked. Survival of the fittest, good vs evil, order, harmony, civilization, admiration of beauty are all examples that the Universe is built for only the best including the morally perfect equating to the best and I can assure you most of Humanity is wicked and is far from the best, for sin creates imperfection, no matter the sin, jealousy, hate, lies, they all are imperfections showing you your own inferiority. Some people such as rapers, molesters, and people who envy, know deep in their conscious that they really do these degrading acts to certain people just to prove to themselves that they are better when infact if they had the creative philosophy skills as I do, they’d really know that it’s their inferiority complex that is imbedded in their conscious that causes them to do such a thing.

    In my last comment. I wrote the Universe is intented for only the best and the facts of it are Survival of the Fittest, admiration of beauty, civilaztion for the better, order, good always beats evil, love beats hate, wisdom beats foolishness, immorataliity is only for the perfect and this is why the Divine would never want Humans to be as a God, because they do not deserve such power, and if they had the Universe would be in Chaos. If this wasn’t true why do people want the best houses, cars, clothes, looks, boyfriend/girlfriend, intelligence, creativity, strength, wisdom, you know why because even in your consciousness it is embedded in you to strive for perfection, for we live for the good and not the bad.
