Coronavirus Update – June 18

In this seventh installment of Coronavirus updates, we will take a look at how Pornhub’s traffic levels have changed since our last May 26th Update. We also have updates on 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 weekly.

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

Worldwide traffic to Pornhub continues to be 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. Even with some state relaxing their quarantines and allowing some people to return to work, Pornhub’s traffic has stayed much higher than it was in February.

Traffic in the United Kingdom continues to remain much higher than before the Covid-19 outbreak. On May 22nd, traffic was still 24.3% higher, and close to the peak increase on March 25th when free Pornhub Premium was offered. An interactive chart can be found below, which has traffic data for each country in the U.K. and several cities.
