Here’s what everyone’s watching this Christmas on Pornhub

Warning: This article contains topics and language that may be NSFW.

What’s your favorite holiday tradition? Leaving cookies out for Santa? Snuggling with a loved one by the tree? Watching The Sound of Music on NBC with a bottle of white wine and screaming at the TV whenever Baroness Schroeder comes onscreen? (Oh, no, wait, that’s mine.) Or is it logging onto your favorite tube site and partaking in a little XXXmas self-love?

If the latest post from Vice and Pornhub Insights is any indication, a lot of people are opting for the latter this Christmas—and they are not holding back on spreading the Yuletide cheer (not to mention other… stuff.)

The tube site compiled a list of the top search terms this Christmas, and apparently “naughty santa’s helper” is the big winner, closely followed by similar terms like “mrs clause,” “santa clause,” and “christmas fuck” (the lack of punctuation makes it difficult to determine whether this is a specific sex act or a holiday-themed expletive, but we’re gonna take a stab in the dark and just say it’s videos of people fucking on Christmas):

Weirdly, search terms related to incest porn also peak in popularity around Christmas time, with “fucking dads girlfriend,” “brother and sister” and “mother in law and son” experiencing whopping surges in traffic. While incest-themed porn tends to be pretty popular year-round, there’s apparently just something about the holiday season that makes people want to bone their relatives/relatives’ significant others.

The Pornhub Insights post also documented shifts in traffic during the holiday season. Unsurprisingly, Christmas Eve is not a peak traffic time for Pornhub, with traffic dropping 43 percent:

But don’t cry for Pornhub, fappers: Traffic will pick up tomorrow during Christmas day, after all the presents are opened and your family members start heading home. Just remember: Regardless of what you find under the tree this Christmas, an orgasm is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
