YouTube ban on gun videos sees Pornhub hosting new kind of smut

People search for all kinds of odd stuff on popular filth gateway Pornhub, with the latest data from the site showing a massive surge in searches related to the game Fortnite, with the spike being attributed – right or wrongly – to Twitch stream featuring Drake. Far more worryingly, it looks like gun videos could be the next big thing on Pornhub…

Talk about bringing new meaning to ‘shooting blanks’…

After a new crackdown by YouTube on firearms-related content saw a number of channels taken down by the Google-owned platform (as first reported by Motherboard), gun vlog InRange TV began sharing videos on Pornhub as well as continuing to post to YouTube.

One such video, the subtly named ‘Glock 19 vs Hudson H9’ – see above for Far Cry 5 cosplay inspiration – racked up nearly 6000 views in roughly 24 hours.

Interestingly, InRange TV appears to be unaffected by the YouTube clampdown, so quite why it feels the need to ‘diversify’ is unclear – it would appear to be a pre-emptive measure, should it also suddenly disappear from YouTube.

InRange TV published the following statement on its Facebook page:

“At this time we are currently publishing content simultaneously on YouTube, Full30, Facebook, BitChute and now PornHub. We will not be seeking any monetization from PornHub and do not know what their monetization policies are, we are merely looking for a safe harbor for our content and for our viewers.”

We’ve reached out to Pornhub for clarification on its policy towards videos promoting guns and will update this article with any comment provided.

Fortnite search surges on Pornhub – and it’s all Drake’s fault

In far less surprising news, it seems that nerdy horndogs continue to fantasise about video game characters.

According to a recent Pornhub Insights blog post, the biggest search spike (824%) came on March 15, and followed Canadian rapper Drake playing the game on a record-breaking Twitch stream.

Particularly curious types can see the full list of Fortnite-related terms below, with “fortnite hentati”, “fortnite battle royale”, and “fortnite animation” unsurprisingly among the most popular.

Pornhub’s data shows that the most likely person to seek out smutty Fortnite videos is an 18-to-24-year-old male from Finland, France or Ireland. Previous upticks in Fortnite search occurred in January following the game’s version 1.36 patch, and in February after 60fps gameplay was enabled.
