People too busy playing Fallout 4 at launch to visit Pornhub


Too much time crafting on your workbench

Well, this is awkward. Pornhub, a site that I'm sure many of you are completely unaware of but happens to be one of the most popular sources of adult entertainment on the internet, took a noticeable hit to their traffic on the day of Fallout 4's release. During peak gaming hours, Pornhub saw a 10% drop from their usual traffic. Apparently there is only one thing red blooded men and women love more than getting their (personal) freak on, and that's trudging through an atomic wasteland. Who knew?

Slightly more uncomfortably, Pornhub has broken down the hour by hour stats for November 10 to weave a narrative of naughty habits (SFW link). Looking at slight rises in their data compared to the large drops throughout the day, they can take an educated guess of when people were “busying” themselves waiting for the game to download, and when players collectively took a break to have a Mr. Handy moment of their own. And you thought statistics was a waste of a college credit didn't you?

Thanks to community superfriend and known pervert, Dreamweaver, for sending this tip in, because of course he would.
