PornHub Searches Go Up As Fortnite Servers Go Down

Gamers. I can't believe I have to say this again. Stop looking at Fortnite porn.

Fortnite, the game that has taken the world by storm faced an outage, that caused many players to feel a little bit lonely. However, in the deep depths of private browsing does the website known as PornHub lurk to satisfy the needs of those who are feeling a little bit lonely. When the Fortnite Season 5 gaming severs went down, PornHub’s traffic went up quite a bit, with a whopping 116% jumps in searches for Fortnite porn.

Fortnite is an online game massive online shooter created by Epic Games. It gives players hours and hours of game time, which can be very addictive. But when happens to these gaming addicts when the online server crashes and the game is over? The answer is simple: PornHub.

These gamers have a hole to fill (non-intentional pun) in their lonely gamer hearts, and something to kick the craving of shooting others and building forts to protect your team. PornHub faced a huge spike in people visiting the site, and it was all down the the Fortnite server crashing. Although, this is slightly concerning, as Fortnite is not a game that is any way raunchy, or particularly overly violent, despite the only aim of the game is to kill other people, the majority of the game’s players are young teens and sometimes even kids.

So why did this server outage cause such a rise in PornHub’s viewing figures? Well, the answer may be down to a new trend, that is known as Fortnite-themed/related porn. Now, as someone who doesn’t play Fortnite, I am completely confused as to how anything to do with the game could be attractive in that sense, but hey, whatever floats your boat. According to PornHub’s insights, the amount of searches for the game have increased massively since the games release in September last year.

I get that people all have different likes and dislikes, and perhaps fetishes if you will, but I think when you begin to find a cartoon character sexually appealing… that’s not great! Many people on Twitter are finding the situation either disturbing or hilarious…and sometimes a bit of both.

Remember when made pervy ‘My Little Pony’ fans made porn of it a thing (it’s true, Google it)? Look, whatever floats your boat, but we do hope that those who find pleasure in this get some help very soon. Stay off Fortnite kids, it will do your mental health a favor.

Do you think this porn trend is too much? Do you reckon Fortnite fans have taken things too far this time? Let us know in the comments, or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
