Fortnite porn searches jumped by 112 percent after Season 6 launched

Fortnite players really love everything about Fortnite. Case in point: After Season 6 launched last week, Pornhub’s Fortnite searches spiked by as much as 112 percent, which is equivalent to “hundreds of thousands” of new Fortnite porn searches each day.

The news comes from a Pornhub Insights post breaking down the game’s search frequency on the site. Fortnite searches remained relatively consistent throughout September, with search volume only increasing here and there on the way to Season 6. But once Season 6 dropped on Sept. 27, Fortnite searches exploded in frequency and only grew each day. By Sept. 30, Fortnite hit a 112 percent increase, and it remains unclear when (or if) those searches will inevitably drop back down to their pre-Season 6 average.

Even though Fortnite experienced a slight lull on Pornhub before Season 6 took off, the site notes that Epic Games’ battle royale hit has remained in Pornhub’s Top 25 searches “through most of 2018.” Fortnite fans aren’t looking for let’s plays, either. During Season 6, the highest searched Fortnite terms on Pornhub are “Fortnite hentai,” “Fortnite porn,” “Fortnite parody,” and “Fortnite cosplay,” just to name a few. Pornhub viewers are also searching for specific characters too, such as “Fortnite Sun Strider,” “Fortnite Zoey,” and the game’s latest female character, “Fortnite Calamity.”

Whether Epic Games is ready to admit it or not, Fortnite has a strange relationship with porn. The multiplayer hit received an enormous Pornhub bump after Twitch streamer Ninja played Fortnite with Drake, and porn searches for Fortnite skyrocketed on Pornhub after an April server outage left players offline. As Overwatch’s Moira would say, idle hands are the devil’s workshop. She would know, there’s plenty of Overwatch porn out there too.
