Pornhub offering free premium access during coronavirus

Print More

NEW YORK — To help encourage people to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic, porn site Pornhub is making all premium content free for the next 30 days.

Along with making sure we can stay… um… “occupied,” the site is also making other more tangible contributions:

  • 15,000 surgical masks to protect first responders from the Local 2507 of New York City, which represents emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics and fire inspectors of the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY).
  • 15,000 surgical masks to the Uniformed Firefighters Association (UFA) Local 94 of New York City to protect first responders.
  • 20,000 surgical masks to Mount Sinai South Nassau to bolster the safety of nurses, physicians and support staff caring for Coronavirus patients.
  • €50,000 to various European organizations to purchase additional masks and medical equipment, including Dein Quarantäne Engel / Deutsches Rotes Kreuz in Germany, Croce Verde di Vicenza in Italy, España vs Coronavirus. Mascarillas AQUÍ AHORA and Material Sanitario para Hospitales Públicos ESPAÑA in Spain.
  • $25,000 to Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP), contributing directly to sex worker relief funds in the SWOP-USA network to meet immediate requests for support from sex workers impacted by COVID-19.

“With nearly one billion people in lockdown across the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important that we lend a hand and provide them with an enjoyable way to pass the time. We hope by expanding our offer of free Pornhub Premium worldwide, people have an extra incentive to stay home and flatten the curve,” said Corey Price, vice president of Pornhub, in a press release.

It is also upping the amount that performers on the porn network receive from video sales. Pornhub will offer them 100% of their video sales after processing fee — for a total payout of 85% of video sales earnings on both Pornhub and its clip site Modelhub — for the month of April.

The recipients of the PPE were grateful for the donations.

“On behalf of Local 2507 which represents the EMTs, paramedics and fire inspectors of New York City, we want to thank Pornhub for their generous donation. In this time of global uncertainty, any company willing to step up and help protect those on the front lines and their families with much needed supplies like surgical masks will allow our members to do their job safely and feel confident going home knowing their families are safe too,” said Michael Greco, vice president of FDNY EMS Local 2507.

This isn’t the first time that Pornhub has been a stronger corporate citizen than many Fortune 500 companies. In the past, they’ve launched efforts to help preserve the bee population, offered free leaf removal and even given a family in need a car. Not to mention a long record of supporting the health and wellness of sex workers and performers.
