Pornhub User Numbers See Huge Growth Thanks To Self-Isolation

More and more people are staying at home thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, and websites like Pornhub are seeing a huge difference in the number of people using their – um – services.

Pornhub’s stats wizards recently crunched the numbers to give us a full look at the website’s insights for the month of March, and there’s some VERY interesting findings.



Comparing February 2020’s traffic with March’s, Pornhub explains: “It became evident that as people were spending more time at home, either self-isolating or working at home, that traffic to Pornhub had risen. Worldwide traffic to Pornhub was up 11.6% on March 17th.”

Of course, there was also a whopping increase in the number of Italian users accessing Pornhub thanks to its offer of free Premium access to those in the country.

“The drastic increase of 57% on March 12 came after Pornhub offered free Premium service to all of Italy, an offer that was clearly well received by home-bound Italians,” said Pornhub.

Traffic from the United States (Pornhub’s largest market) was up 6.4% on March 17th, and 7.2% in Canada, following on from government recommendations of staying at home.

And of course, when any trending topic hits the news as hard as COVID-19, you’re bound to see a spike in searches in the world of porn.

Pornhub notes that yes, there has been a massive spike in people searching for the term “coronavirus.”

Delving deeper, the company explains: “When compared to the rest of the world, visitors from Slovakia are 119% more likely to search for Coronavirus on Pornhub. Searches are more than 80% more popular in Bulgaria, Ireland, Malaysia and Serbia.
