Finally, a porn site that offers what you really want: statistical analysis. Pornhub, a massive XXX network that clocks about a billion visits monthly (more than BuzzFeed!), has published a study focusing on how worldwide events impact porn consumption.¬†It combed through its data and compiled all the info about porn watching you never wanted to know. Because who hasn’t thought, “I wonder how many people are watching porn right now?” just after closing an incognito tab.

The groundbreaking study found that, for example, the¬†release of the first iPad increased American porn consumption by 9%; what Pornhub hasn’t confirmed is whether this spike coincides with girlfriends everywhere finding super secret hiding spaces for their beloved tablets. The site also determined that the royal wedding caused an initial 15% drop in U.K. porn watching, followed by “huge spikes in porn for the rest of the day.”

Come back next time for more innovative data visualization from Pornhub, a site that I’ve totally never visited before writing this, I swear!
