Porn Traffic Dropped During Eclipse

 

Mid-day fappers across the United States found something better to watch on Monday.  During the solar eclipse, traffic to the popular porn website Pornhub took a significant hit.  Those states that were in the path of totality saw the sharpest drop, as much as 54 percent.

Pornhub put together the numbers after the total solar eclipse earlier this week.  The stats show that in states like Wyoming, Nebraska, Idaho, and Oregon, people were preoccupied with something other than porn.

The first eclipse of its kind in nearly a century got people away from their computers and staring at the sky.  Pornhub has put together a breakdown by states in and out of the path of totality.  The data shows that even in states that view the eclipse from their location, found other means.  As a result, Pornhub saw its biggest drop in traffic than they have seen in years.

Wyoming saw the largest drop at an astonishing 54 percent.  The data didn’t reflect how long the dips in traffic lasted, but it is probably safe to say it lasted longer than most of Pornhub’s users.

It was nice to see that for at least a few minutes, people were interested in science instead of self-pleasure.  For a brief time, even the most skeptical people believed in science and didn’t try to pin the eclipse on some non-existent deity or alternative facts.  Americans turned out in droves to look up at the sky to witness a marvel of the universe, putting aside their differences if only for a few minutes. 

One can’t help but wonder if mankind could extend this brief moment of curiosity and astonishment to truly begin to understand not only each other but the wondrous beauty of the cosmos.
