Watch: Pornhub Honors Female Orgasm Day

Saturday August 8, 2020

Today Pornhub announced the launch of its "Orgasm Gap" campaign in honor of International Female Orgasm Day, an initiative geared toward closing the orgasm gap in male-female relationships.

As part of the campaign, Pornhub will interrupt videos most popular with straight men at the 40% timestamp to highlight the percentage of women in male-female relationships who do not reach orgasm during sex with this video:

Although researchers demystified the female orgasm decades ago, the gender orgasm gap plight remains to this day — 40% of women who have sex with men do not reach orgasm during sex, while 95% of men who have sex with women reach climax in every sexual encounter.

Since men are often solely focused on their own pleasure, Pornhub will be interrupting their fun by pausing the videos on the site that are most popular among straight men at 40% of the way through. Once the videos are paused, the viewer will be prompted to play their part in stopping the orgasm gap.
