Today, everyone’s favorite porn site, PornHub, announced that on July 12, they will be joining a protest called “Day of Action,” organized by Fight for the Future, freepress, and Demand Progress, against the impending threat to free and open internet.

The protest, which over 60 other companies including Amazon, Reddit, and Mozilla are also joining, is against FCC chief and former Verizon executive Ajit Paj’s attack on net neutrality, and the proposal to “remove the classification of broadband as a telecommunications service, a ruling made in 2015 to ensure stronger protections for an open internet.”

Just think of it this way – if net neutrality hadn’t existed when PornHub came into existence 10 years ago, we probably wouldn’t be jerking off as easily, quickly, or freely as we are today. And that, my friends, is a sad scenario to imagine.

VP at PornHub, Corey Price, told MotherBoard: "Without it, the cable and wireless companies that control Internet access will have unfair power to pick winners and losers in the market."

Anyway, what PornHub plans to do during the protest is this: implement a loading icon while people are trying to unwind after a long day by watching some porn, which will show users essentially what it’d be like if broadband companies actually implement internet fast and slow lanes.

“No one in the porn industry ever yells ‘slower, slower, slower. We’re much more accustomed to ‘faster, faster, faster.’ Here at PornHub, we want to keep it that way”, Price added.

PornHub’s tactic of slapping a loading icon on their porn videos is definitely going to piss off all 75 million of their daily users, but let’s not fail to keep in mind that this is all for the greater good. All you need to do is suck it up and ride it out like a man.

The "Day of Action" on July 12 will be similar to slowdown day in 2014 and SOPA blackout protest in 2012, which all urged internet users to take action against interference.

Well, you better get ready for July 12, because it's literally going to be a slow day for Pornhub. Just practice some relaxation techniques, hope for the best, and you'll be fine.
