Fans wallowed in porn after Super Bowl

NEW England Patriots fans apparently turned to porn to ease their pain after the team's stunning Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday.

In Massachusetts, traffic to Pornhub jumped as much as 26 per cent in the few hours after the game ended, according to the popular porn site.

Traffic in Boston - the beating heart of Patriots territory - was 28 per cent above normal by 1am.

Ecstatic Eagles fans did not turn to porn in quite the same numbers. Pornhub viewership was only up 13 per cent above normal at 1am in Philadelphia, while national viewership was up around 9 per cent.

Not surprisingly, traffic to Pornhub fell during the game itself.

At 9pm, right as the game entered its final stretch, viewership nationwide was down 28 per cent, while Boston showed an even steeper decline of 54 per cent.

In Philly, viewership was down a whopping 58 per cent at 10pm in the minutes before the Eagles sealed their victory.

The nation's most dedicated football fans were from Delaware, where traffic dropped by -45% between 6pm and 11pm.

Elsewhere on the East Coast, traffic dropped by -43% in Rhode Island, -42% in Massachusetts and -41% in Pennsylvania. That's quite understandable seeing as both teams were from Eastern states. The smallest traffic changes happened in Kansas (-11%), Nevada (-12%) and Alabama (-14%).

WOMEN vs. MEN

Male traffic across the U.S. dropped by as much as -30% while female traffic dropped by only -22%. Female traffic remained equally low around 8pm, while male traffic increased slightly.

Could than mean that women were more likely to stick around to watch Justin Timberlake's halftime show, while men took the opportunity to visit Pornhub? Post game traffic from men surged +10% at Midnight, while female traffic returned mostly to normal with a +7% increase at 2am.

The lull in traffic during a big sporting event, followed by a spike after the action is over, is part of a pattern for Pornhub. The Super Bowl is an exceptionally big night for the porn purveyor as it coincides with its busiest time of the week, Sunday at 11pm.
