Pornhub’s Sexual Wellness Center

World Sexual Health Day is celebrated annually on September 4th, in an effort to raise awareness of the social and cultural taboos associated with sexuality and to promote positive sexual health. This year, the Pornhub Insights team will be taking a closer look at our own free resource for information about sexuality, health and relationships: The Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center.

The Sexual Wellness Center is directed by Dr. Laurie Betito, a noted broadcaster, author, therapist and speaker. She is joined by numerous contributors, each with their own expertise and knowledge to share. Since launching in 2017, more than 40 million people have visited Pornhub’s Sexual Wellness Center for help and information on a wide variety of topics.


Zoom Down, Porn Up!

On August 24th, popular video conferencing service Zoom experienced a major outage between 8am and 2pm. Across much of the United Kingdom and the East Coast of the United States, thousands of people were unable to connect to their business calls, online classes and yoga sessions.

While some people simply switched to a different video service for the day, Daily Caller asked us if many others used the downtime to visit Pornhub. And it turns out they did!

Traffic across the United Kingdom increased by as much at 5.6% at 11am, and the East Coast of the U.S. by 6.2%. When you consider that the U.S. and U.K. make up nearly half of Pornhub’s daily traffic, that represents a major shift in mid-day porn viewership.
