Porn Sites are Losing Traffic Because of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I haven’t seen a bigger reaction for any type of game in the universe since the release of Pokemon Go, but Nintendo Switch and more particularly Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been enormously popular.  Just how popular?  Popular enough that the people playing Switch aren’t paying nearly as much attention to porn.  I mean that’s some serious popularity right there.

YouPorn reports that their traffic dropped noticeably after the release last weekend of the highly anticipated new gaming system the Nintendo Switch. It seems people were so excited to play with their new device that they didn’t need to search for more, um, excitement in the form of you know, adult site entertainment.   According to Mashable

YouPorn regularly experiences small traffic fluctuations from things like holidays, big TV shows airing or movies premiering. But the Switch was a different story. It’s debut on March 3 coincided with a 15 percent drop in traffic from users who self-identified as gamers. By the next day — a Saturday, peak sit on the couch and play a game day — it was down 17 percent, and by Sunday it was only 13 percent down.

There was one metric in searches that did in fact go up though: demand for porn related to Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  Is there no end?  It’s pretty impressive that there’s verifiable proof that the Nintendo Switch actually trumps porn with regard to user desirability.    Anyone who thinks that gaming and porn don’t hit the exact same pleasure centers in the brain are surely mistaken.
