Frankenstorm Caused a Spike in Porn Traffic

According to data released by PornHub, as Hurricane Sandy lumbered up the East Coast last week, many residents of New York and New Jersey prepared for widespread power outages by loading up on essential supplies, and then blowing their loads all over their MacBooks.

The popular porn site reports that it was hit with traffic spikes between Sunday night (Oct 28) and Tuesday morning (Oct 30), with people in New York and New Jersey, specifically, watching more online porn than any other state in the U.S. during that period. But especially New Jersey. For obvious reasons. (Just kidding. We've got nothing but love for our neighboring state. But the punchlines are just so easy.)

The stats are as follows:

New York
• On Monday, October 29, traffic went up 32% from 12am to 6am.
• Traffic between 10am and 3pm was up 12% (suggesting people knew that they might lose power or internet later on).
• After 3pm, the traffic started to decrease significantly with the biggest drop between 8pm Monday and 1am Tuesday, when the traffic decreased by 36% (believed to be a result of power and internet outages).

New Jersey
• Traffic went up 60% from 12am to 6am on Monday (almost double that of New York).
• From 10am to 3pm traffic was up by 20%.
• After 3pm traffic started decreasing, with a 30% drop from 3pm to 8pm and a 65% drop from 8pm Monday through Tuesday afternoon.

So, remember, kids: The next time a big storm is brewing, just follow this simple prep checklist: Flashlights? Check. Batteries? Check. Bottled water and canned goods? Check and check. Now, you should have plenty of time to beat your meat before the power goes out.
