Watch Porn, Help the Earth

Watch Porn, Help the Earth

2nd June 2014 // By Jasmine S. // In Conversation

Viewing porn has such a stigma behind it that some people are embarrassed to admit to it. Well, what if watching porn were actually beneficial to the world, and by streaming videos, you were singlehandedly (pun intended) helping the environment?

Earlier this year, the mighty site Pornhub launched a weeklong campaign, ‘Pornhub Gives America Wood’ that would make environmentalists scream with pleasure. The campaign was simple; Pornhub will plant one tree with every 100 videos watched in the Big Dick category. Their goal was to plant 12,000 trees, but by the end of the week they reached 15,473 trees. That’s a lot of porn watching. 

However, the campaign page wasn’t very clear regarding the actual tree planting. Where? How? Who? Perhaps the Big Dick actors themselves? Pornhub’s PR director has given a statement that they might work alongside an environmental organisation to help plant the seeds (aha!). 

The success of this marketing ploy might actually inspire more corporations to take part in environmental actions and integrate their advertising with life-changing solutions. Who knows, maybe Pornhub might do this stunt again, and if they do, you can tell your friends that you helped save global warming (by jacking off).
