Coronavirus Update – April 2

In this third installment of Coronavirus updates, we will take a look at how Pornhub’s traffic levels have changed since our last March 25th update. We also have updates on traffic by demographic and daily Coronavirus related searches.

If you are looking for daily traffic updates, you will find a new interactive graph at the end of this post containing data for 30 countries and regions that will be updated several times each week.

Pornhub’s statisticians also released data showing Increased Video Uploads From Verified Models.

UPDATE: Please see our April 14th Coronavirus Insights for new data.

Worldwide traffic to Pornhub as been much higher than it was before the Coronavirus pandemic spread worldwide. The peak increase of 24.4% happened on March 25th after we offered Free Pornhub Premium to encourage people to say indoors and distance themselves socially.

Comparisons were made to an average traffic period in February before the pandemic. Because traffic varies depending on the day of the week, each day was compared to the same day of the week during the average period. (You can see Pornhub’s normal traffic levels as detailed in our 2019 Year in Review).

The following chart illustrates how Pornhub’s traffic began to increase sooner in Europe than other parts of the world, as the virus began to spread.

Traffic changes became noticeable much later in the United States, as it joined Europe with quarantines, social distancing and work-at-home efforts encouraged or required by most states.

Italy was the first country (outside the Asian continent) to require citizens to stay at home to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. To encourage this, Pornhub began offering Free Premium content to Italian visitors on March 12th, resulting in a 57% increase in traffic.
