The next time someone says “losers look at porn,” tell them they’re right.

Pornhub, which tracks how much porn the world is watching, reports Denver Bronco fans turned their attention to porn during the 43-8 spanking at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.

Before the game, Denver residents were watching almost 20 percent less porn. During the first half, something about the Broncos’ performance made them lose interest, and porn viewing surged. After the game, porn viewing was 11 percent higher than usual in Denver and 7.6 higher in Colorado.

In Seattle, residents watched about 17 percent less porn before the game. During the game, they kept watching the pounding on the field. Porn-viewing levels were 17% below average after the game in Seattle and 11 percent lower in Washington.

During the 2014 Super Bowl, watched by a record-setting 111.5 million viewers, porn viewing was down an amazing 32 percent in the U.S.

Major sports events and holidays have a history of curtailing x-rated video use.

Some interesting U.S. stats, mostly from 2012:

  • New Year’s Eve: -34%
  • 2014 Super Bowl: -32%
  • Thanksgiving: -29%
  • Christmas: -27%
  • July 4: -27%
  • NBA finals: -16%
  • Easter: -16%
  • Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London: +2%

Hmmmmm … looks like people will have time to catch up during the upcoming Sochi games.

Me thinks the Denver offensive line was watching porn too–on the sidelines instead of listening to the coaching staff.

“during the 43-8 spanking at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.” and “kept watching the pounding on the field” is some of your best work yet George.

If the commercials dont start getting any better and becoming less in your face / politically correct then porn viewing will surpass the big game in record setting numbers.

Are they a subsidiary of the NSA?

It was possible to do both during the game, but was also easy to get the two confused, if you get my drift.

Seriously, he used the word, “Spanking”? He could have said Denver was choking during the game, which always reminds me of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s remark about “what color does a smurf turn when you choke them”? And Walter responds, “Is that what they’re calling it these days? What happened to the chicken”?

The fact that this tracked shows a waste of good money. I can’t believe that the AJC can’t find anything else to report on.
