The data is meaningless alone, maybe 9pm is when parents put their kids to sleep and get a little "me time." You'd have to compare that to normal trends around the 9pm hour to see if a rapid uptick is normal at about that time.

denver is one hour ahead of seattle.  are those the local times of the respective cities or EST?  looks like the latter.

This isn't the first time they've tracked the traffic during a big event. It rather amuses me that they continue to do this.

Couldn't Pornhub answer that age old question that's flummoxed science forever: just how many gay people are there?

You don't get a much more precise metric that what saucy things watch in secret.

If you're going by gay pornography viewership rates, it's way more than the 10% thrown around, but since pornography usage doesn't necessarily correlate directly with preferences, that's a difficult to prove idea.

Actually someone from Pornhub tweeted that this graph  isthe variance from the average use at the time on the graph, so it is exactly what you're looking for.

Wasn't just Denver fans. Anyone who had no stake in the game tuned out after the first play in the second half. Who wants to watch an aging veteran try to force a comeback against a dominant defense?

Also, pornhub isn't actually a representative sample of ... well anything.  I consume porn, but I've never been to pornhub... so yeah.

Also, I will admit to watching porn that isn't necessarily representative of my taste in the real world.  Anime, manga, trans, etc.  But my real life sexual preferences are more or less mainstream.  Sometimes, it's just fun to watch.

If you masturbate to two dudes farking each other, I've got news for you: your gay. Or at least bi. But you ain't hetero.

So yeah, they should be able to get an accurate count of non-straight males. Everyone likes lesbians though, so you're not going to get any meaningful count of non-straight females. Maybe you could just use Jezebel visitor numbers for that?

Congratulations on not understanding, idiot.  In your rush to declare people gay, you've neglected that not every group of people views pornography in equal quantities.

But.....ummmmm, so I've heard.... PornHub and similar sites don't ask if you're looking for straight or gay pornography (or something in-between).

To get started, have two sets of check-boxes: I am a man/woman and I like men/women.

Here is a totally SFW screen capture, but I'll link it instead of image displaying so that prying eyes don't think you're launching into an in-work hottub session.

That's a vast amount of very specific data.

The hubby and I aren't real football fans but we try to listen or watch the superbowl every year just so we feel like were part of our culture. This year we were listening on the radio during a long drive and we both thought that first play in the second half was a highlight from the first half. Took a moment to sink in. And then we turned off the radio.

Look, I wasn't interested in that at all.  Then I was only very slightly interested in it out of morbid curiosity. Then I grew a bit more interested in it. Then it became just interesting. Then it was very interesting, Then is was brutally poundingly interesting! THEN IT WAS THE MOST INTERESTING THING EVER!!!!111!!

Then I wasn't interested at all.

I'm sure the massively recirculated tweet that pronhub put out during the game has absolutely nothing to do with it, nosiree.

"Hmm, pornhub eh? Well, not much more to see here, might as well check that out."

That probably won't work quite so easily. Guys watch lesbian porn, hell the majority is geared to them and I can't watch most of it without wincing in sympathy, and plenty of girls watch gay porn ...or so I hear once a month when I swap porn recs with friends.

I know some women who watch gay porn.  So you're not even going to get an accurate estimation there.

Oooh, a feisty one! So, your argument is that some groups of people use pornography less, so you won't be able to tell how many people are in the groups based on pornography viewing. Except, if we knew for a fact that certain groups use less pornography (and we knew by how much less), we could easily still do the math.

But you, being smart, probably already know that. So you must think certain groups use more or less pornography at rates that unknown to science. You know what saying "this group uses more/less pornography that this group" without hard numbers is called? STEREOTYPING. Bigot.

But I'd imagine that the questions of "proportion of girls who watch gay porn" is a metric that's far more accurately obtained through traditional means - such as interviews and questionnaires - than getting middle aged married men to admit to researchers that they wish their wife had a beard and love-flute.

I'm not saying that could provide the insights alone, but when combined with other research, I'm sure that's something more accurate that we currently have.
