Pornhub traffic in Washington DC skyrocketed on election night

Standard


Good job everyone: Americans took a break from looking at porn long enough to watch the midterm erection election results roll in. 

According to Pornhub’s ever-insightful analytics, traffic in the United States was up as much as 20 percent on Tuesday morning. 

The report theorizes that Americans jerked off early before hitting the polls, or “perhaps they woke up more anxious than usual and needed to relax.” 

Pornhub's traffic dipped when election night results rolled in.

Traffic dipped between 4 to 7 p.m. and then again between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. as results rolled in across the nation. Strangely, traffic was up 1.7 percent at 8 p.m. — maybe it was too late to vote but too early for results? 

Women turned to Pornhub the morning of the election; a breakdown by gender shows that traffic from women jumped by nearly 21 percent at 7 a.m. But they also paid attention to election updates as traffic from women dropped more than usual from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Traffic from women increased by 21 percent at 7 a.m.

It seems like people of all ages were interested in staying informed about the results, as a break down by age range shows that both people 18 to 35 and 35+ paused their Pornhub browsing at 6 p.m., just as news shows would have started. 

People of all ages were trying to stay informed during this election.

In Washington DC, traffic was up by 31 percent from 8 p.m. to midnight as those in political careers sought some stress relief from campaigning. 

Looks like those in DC needed some relief after an insane day.

So … do what you will with this information.
