Coronavirus starting from Wuhan city of china has till now affected almost 200+ countries around the globe.

If we look at the current stats it has 2.73 Million Confirmed, 749K Recovered cases and approx 192K Deaths all over the world.

There is not a single country, state or city and no sector of the world which has not been affected by this infection.

Several sectors and industries have been so badly affected by the epidemic caused by covid-19 that they are on the verge of shutting down and a wave of standstill has been going around the world.

Several credit rating agencies and big financial institutions like world bank, IMF, European union, UN have been talking and worried about the recession in the world post this epidemic.

Many sectors have had losses due to lockdown worth billions that they will not be able to recover it for the next 3-4 years, millions of people have already lost their jobs and livelihood and millions more are on the edge.

One such sector worst affected by the coronavirus epidemic is Porn. Yes, you heard it right, porn industry has been very severely affected by the coronavirus epidemic also known as covid-19.

Governments of many global superpower nations have requested their citizens to remain at home and have imposed lockdown in the entire states and countries and requested the citizens to maintain the social distancing.

Many essential services industries are still working maintaining the social distancing, wearing the mask and using the sanitizers during this tough time.

But porn industry is one such industry where social distancing can not be maintained even if one is willing to do so.

Ever watched any porn movie where the actors are wearing the mask?? Ever watched people doing sex from a distance of 1 meter??

We hope you understand what we mean… There is not even .0% chance of maintaining social & physical distance in porn Industry and as such the chances of spread of infection increase the risk upto 200%.

Let’s look at the amazing stats of Global Porn industry

  • 25% of search engine requests are related to sex
  • 35% of downloads from the internet are pornographic
  • 40 million Americans say they regularly visit porn sites
  • 70% of men aged 18 to 24 visit a porn site at least once per month
  • The largest consumer group of online porn is men between the ages of 35 and 49
  • One-third of all internet porn users are women
  • Sunday is the most popular day of the week for viewing porn
  • Porn sites receive more regular traffic than Netflix, Amazon, & Twitter combined each month
  • Porn is a global, estimated $97 billion industry, with about $12 billion of that coming from the U.S.
  • In 2018 alone, more than 5,517,000,000 hours of porn were consumed on the world’s largest porn site
  • Eleven pornography sites are among the world’s top 300 most popular Internet sites. The most popular such site, at number 18, outranks the likes of eBay, MSN, and Netflix
  • The world’s largest free porn site also received over 33,500,000,000 site visits during 2018 alone


Due to the fear of coronavirus, many porn studios have already been closed due to lockdown, the actors and porn stars have been told to delay their shoots and they are not being paid any more due to the lockdown and no further shoots.

One the contrary the number of hits has been increased on the internet for porn.

The internet searches on porn, porn download and streaming of porn has almost tripled due to people being lockdown in their homes without any work.

Many porn stars have started their own online cam sessions to earn money maintaining the social distancing and giving visual pleasure to the visitors also called as pay per view model.

The internet websites having porn are making more money than usual despite being a lockdown in their studios selling old content.

In countries where porn industry is legalized and comes under the standard employment governments have planned and decided to support such people by offering relief package but what about countries like India where porn industry is not just illegal but a very big social stigma and taboo.


People working in porn Industry in India has nowhere to go. The life of such people have come to a complete standstill without any work, money and food. Ironically India is the world’s third largest porn consumer all over the world.
