Nintendo Switch Launch Decreases Porn Traffic

A sudden decrease in watching porn is caused by the release of Nintendo Switch and Breath of the Wild.

Renowned video game company Nintendo has released their seventh major gaming console Nintendo Switch and a brand-new action-adventure title Breath of the Wild from the Legend of Zelda series for the newly introduced platform and Wii U on the same day, last week.

Aside from being heavily praised worldwide by players and garnering acclaim from critics online, the console and game have accomplished another near-impossible feat; stopping people from watching porn.

Recently, one of the most visited free pornographic video sharing sites on the internet, YouPorn has shared their anonymous analytical data claiming that they experienced a sudden drop in their traffic fell to 17%.

It is quite regular for consumption rates to drop below average when a new movie or new season of popular TV shows premier but the impact upon Switch release was far beyond than anything they have ever seen before. This was the lowest traffic weekend of the month.

However, the release of the game sees an increase of searches for topics like "Zelda Breath of the Wild" and "Link" to a whopping 164% the same crazy weekend. Other search includes "Zelda" and is increased to a 102% at the same time.

More Nintendo related search term sees a 24% rise for Mario, 16% for Princess Peach and Bowser went up to a 23%, which is pretty disturbing and weird at the same time. Good thing is that, gamers really love to play rather than watching porn.
