    If there's ever a yardstick to determine how popular something is, Pornhub has to be it. The adult site has divulged that it suffered a 10% knock in traffic on the day Fallout 4 was released, coming to the conclusion the lure of the video game's open-world play was more popular than porn...well, for a few hours at least.

    Fallout 4
    was released on Tuesday 10 November, which coincided with a noticeable dip in visitors to Pornhub between 5am and 3pm, then again from 6pm and 9pm. Pornhub released a graph showing the traffic change among 'gamers' ? a group they've identified from its 60m daily visitors based on anonymised statistics from Google Analytics. Of course, there's no specific link between gaming and watching porn, but it makes for a rather humorous look at the data.

    That's funny. If you want to take the data to the extreme, then it looks like people played Fallout 4 for 10 hours, jerked off for 3 hours, and then played Fallout 4 again for 3 more hours before returning to their regularly scheduled self-feeling sessions.

    lol that's actually pretty fucking funny.

    I wonder if BHW suffered the same. Soon we'll be seeing some begging threads telling us mom wants her IM kid to get out of her basement and go outside.
