nmrsnr: 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.


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.

They wanted to watch someone else take it in the ass. Who can blame them.

Interesting - the Broncos were beating themselves even earlier.

Stinkyy: I am confused if this thread is supposed to make Hetero male "A" logically infer something about Hetero male pr0n viewing. Do I need a World Almanac or post-doctoral journal to tell me that straight guys pretty much don't like to partake in the gay butt-sex viewership?  Completely baffling.  I also can't tell if someone's mad at the other,  and if so, about what.  I don't even think I drank last night and this thread is all over the place.  Oh well.


Yeah but what if straight guys like watching a woman give a beej? Which side of the deal is the guy imagining he's on? The giver or the givee? Study it out.

ikanreed: That Guy Jeff: 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.

We don't, dummy, except by back comparing this same data to things like the surveys that suggested 10%ish in the first place.  Thus invalidating your conclusion by begging the question.


Is that... a correct usage of "begging the question"?  On the internet?

Bungles: 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.


Answer: 97% of males are lesbians.

I repeat:

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 than this group" without hard numbers is called? STEREOTYPING. Bigot.

DROxINxTHExWIND: H31N0US: 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?


Football fans.


Not this one. That was terrible football.

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.


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.

drunk_bouncnbaloruber: GCD: 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.

Boston's traffic spiked right after they lost the SCF to Chicago.


Seriously - if the NSA wants to start gathering date somewhere meaningful, this is the place to get it.
