Pornhub's 2019 Insights Show That When the Going Gets Tough, People Watch Porn 1

Our new year is already off to a wild start. The government shutdown, which lasted for most of January, set all kinds of records: most days without a fully open government, biggest tantrum from a sitting president, and the best The Shining impression we’ve seen in years. That was promptly followed by a giant polar vortex that swept across the nation and sent Americans into hiding as temperatures plummeted. And what’s the common thread between the two? Porn. As it turns out, when people get bored or temporarily unemployed or simply cold, they watch porn.

Pornhub released statistics on site traffic during both the polar vortex and a week of no government, and it turns out that people really enjoy filling that extra time with pornography. For the government shutdown, Pornhub surveyed American porn use during the week of January 7 through 10. The results are very telling.

In Washington D.C. alone, visits were up as much as 12 percent from typical viewing statistics. The biggest bumps in viewership happened between 10pm and 1am. Even more, um, revealing is that the categories of Outdoor, Threesome, Old/Young, Small Tits, Squirt, and Solo Female all saw at least 50 percent increases in traffic. That’s one way to keep busy.

Statistics on the polar vortex focus squarely on the Midwest during the dates of January 30-31 when temperatures dropped well below freezing. Of the 11 states surveyed, only Michigan logged a decrease in traffic. Granted, it’s worth noting that Michigan’s governor asked residents to turn down their thermostats because of a gas shortage in the state, so maybe open-air exposure was a factor. On the other side of the lake, Minnesota and Wisconsin led the charge with a 22 and 12 percent increase in traffic, respectively.

So there you have it—America might make most of her headlines for political discord and temperature shattering super storms, but more than that, the United States of America is a place where you look adversity in the eye and address it with online porn for little to no cost. God Bless America and God Bless 2019.
