YouTube went down earlier this week, and apparently, the vibrant YouTube community found something else to do with their time. Pornhub traffic spiked nearly 21% during the outage at 10pm. Based on Pornhub's regular volume, that represents millions of additional viewers. This isn't the first time traffic spiked during a significant event, as Pornhub's (SFW) blog usually publishes traffic data during significant events.

During the outage, our statisticians also found some search terms had increased in popularity well above their average levels on October 16th. Searches for “asmr” increased by 201%, as people looking for an Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response were just as likely to find that on Pornhub as YouTube. Searches containing “YouTube” increased by 183%, along with other terms likely to appear on both streaming sites including “wwe”, “bowsette“, “fortnite“, “minecraft“, “game”, “pokemon“, “celebrity”, “twitch”, “overwatch” and “halloween“.

Minecraft porn? Can safely say that rule 34 application has yet to stoke my curiosity. The Bowsette stuff is hilarious. It's amazing how quickly that stuff proliferated after the initial Nintendo tweet that inspired it.

I'm honestly not sure why people would search those keywords on pornhub. Am I missing something here?

They are sneaking non porn stuff onto pornhub. They seem to be getting non porn viewers and content into their system . When they get big enough could there be a name change?

Real question is which genre of porn spiked the most during that timeframe. Let's see what your usual Youtube viewers fetishes are.

Not talking about WWE or Bowsette, I'm talking the rabbit hole of videos watched rather than key words. Are they in to Milfs or Teens. Society needs to know.

Goblin slayer is a normal manga comic book though, not a porn thing.... Pretty good too...

I'm even more surprised that people would rather watch youtube than pornhub.

You guys are missing the curious question. I would hypothesize that there is a rational constant in the number of people masturbating at any moment, and because of this I believe we are all misapplying this data:
  1. If (X%) of the population is masturbating at any given time,
  2. and then YouTube goes down,
  3. and then there is a 21% spike in traffic on Pornhub,
then what were those people masturbating to on YouTube?

There are a few channels that I go to that I found on r/fatpeoplehate before it was banned that are dedicated to fat people falling down stairs.

Also compilations of boobie streamers being asked to place one of their shoes on the top of their heads.

Both of those are the right amount of demeaning and funny. Sometimes that's what I need to get off.

I feel like the thought process was something like this for those people:

"Well shit I can't watch cat videos and funny clips because YouTube is down. Guess I better just go jerk it until it comes back online."

I was talking about someone doing a parody based on that scene, just like Hulk vs Black Widow. lol
Just heard about the series a few days ago when I saw a "reaction to" video on the 1st episode
