Everyone Spent the Government Shutdown Watching Porn

PH gov't shutdown

The government shutdown is over. Rejoice, all ye faithful! Once you’re done with the rejoicing, take a look at the crazy porn-viewing increase rates from the past 16 days. According to spank portal PornHub’s internal numbers, they were busier than usual when government employees had nothing better to do all day.

Oddly enough, Nevada saw a 42 percent impact and Oklahoma, a 22 percent impact. There are several explanations as to why there might be more wankers as our Brit comrades would say in these states than usual, but it must be said—they really don’t have much of an excuse. Most government employees live and work in the Northeast (which showed a slight but not monumental increase). Meanwhile, D.C. and its surroundings were impacted in the modest five percent range. Maybe Nevadians and Oklahomans are much more plugged in, politically, than we thought? And clearly very plugged in to their computers right about now.
