Pornhub Took A Huge Traffic Hit During The 'Game Of Thrones' Premiere

Game of Thrones took over the airwaves on Sunday, and also destroyed everyone's timelines with jokes and complaints about Ed Sheeran. Yes, the long anticipated season 7 premiere was finally here and you know what that means: time to take a brief break from masturbating.

The Independent reports that popular pornography site Pornhub shared their statistics from the hour on Sunday night that HBO was airing GoT. They found that during that time period, traffic to Pornhub dipped by 4.5 percent, saying that shows a "considerable change in visitors as Sunday night is one of the most popular times for people to visit Pornhub."

I know what you're thinking. That's not such a huge dip. But when you actually look at the graph, it's pretty hilarious:

The question is, are people so in love with Game of Thrones that they're willing to stop pleasuring themselves for an hour to enjoy it, or are they just finding their pleasure...elsewhere?

When season 6 premiered, Pornhub says they had a drop as well, but only by 4.1 percent. People have gotten even more excited for this show than ever before, perhaps even too excited in ways we don't want to contemplate. But the site says their biggest dip ever was during the finale of season 6, when they experienced a 5.2 percent traffic dip. People always get worked up when you leave them wanting more.

Pornhub seems more amused by the loss of customers than angry, as does everybody else.

And it's not the first time someone has made the connection that they're more or less the same thing:

We'll see whether porn or Jon Snow can keep our attention longer this season.
