"Pornhub is encouraging people around the world to stay home to help flatten the coronavirus curve by self-isolating with FREE Premium," the company says. People who sign up at pornhub.com/stayhome will be able to "enjoy the (HD), on-demand streaming platform for the next 30 days."

It's a gesture that benefits not just the consumer, but also content creators. With a number of freelance professions affected by the global lockdown, Pornhub intends to make sure that performers on its Premium service still get paid, stating that all models will receive "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."

Coincidentally, Pornhub's advice to stay home and jerk it dovetails nicely with official recommendations made by the state of New York, which advises that masturbation is the safest kind of sex there is during the pandemic.

In addition to gifting the world with free porn, Pornhub has also made a series of donations to COVID-19 relief. These include giving a total of 30,000 surgical masks to first responders (including EMTs and firefighters) in New York City, an additional 20,000 masks to Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital, as well as cash donations of 50,000 to European medical organizations, and $25,000 to the Sex Workers Outreach Project.

This isn't the first time Pornhub has risen (hehe) to the occasion amidst a global crisis. Last year, it filmed a sex scene on the "world's filthiest beach" to raise awareness of ocean pollution, and has aided the conservation of bee colonies, which are crucial to our ecosystem, with its charitable Beesexual channel.
