As we hit the second week of the Winter Olympics, a fun fact that continues to interest people is that not only are the athletes interested in only one thing (well two if you consider their hunt for medals), it would appear so is the viewing public.
Yes, online porn giant Pornhub has been keeping track of what’s been going on at its site during the Winter Olympics and the results are hilarious to say the last. The athletes were keen to admit that Tinder dates (42 Tinder profiles were set up by Pyeongchang competitors on day one) are a ‘hot item’ during the Olympics (put a few thousand under 25-year-olds all in the shape of their life together in one place and this is what you get) and some even admitted openly that they are looking for love

Meanwhile, the viewing public seems to switch between watching Olympians and… watching them make out on Pornhub afterward.
Yes, seeing the thousands of Olympians in action has helped trigger an 85 percent spike in Pyeongchang’s Pornhub searches. Hits for Olympic-related porn have through the roof since the Winter Games kicked off two weeks ago.
Furthermore, Pornhub reported a 112 percent spike in searches for ‘Korean’ porn (with millions of users perhaps inspired by North Korea’s dazzling cheerleaders).
Pornhub statistics reported that: “Searches containing either “Korea” or “Korean” grew by 38% above normal levels on February 9th and have continued to remain high.”
