Borderlands 3 Porn Is Almost As Popular As The Game Itself

Hey, I’m not here to judge.

There’s nothing like the launch of a new game, but the last few years have seen a pretty interesting link between new games and porn, specifically on Pornhub.

Last year we had thousands of people going gaga for Bowsette porn, while Pornhub searches relating to Fortnite, Tomb Raider and Overwatch continued to stay as popular as ever.

Now is seems as though Gearbox’s new release, Borderlands 3, is the latest video game to get people excited for all the wrong reasons (or right reasons, I’m not here to judge).

In a Pornhub Insights blog post the company confirms: “Our statisticians soon found that over 1 million people have searched for Borderlands in the last 5 days, representing a 12,905% increase over its daily average.

“That’s nearly five times the popularity of Fortnite and three time that of Overwatching, making Borderlands the most searched for game and a top trending term on Pornhub.”

Statistics also showed that “Xbox users were 78% more likely to search [Borderlands 3 porn] when compared to PlayStation users.”

Pornhub also adds: “People who search for Borderlands are also into ‘bondage’, ‘cartoon’, ‘anime’, ‘cosplay’ and ‘furry’ searches.

“During the same user session, they are also likely to search for other games like ‘fortnite’, ‘overwatch’ and ‘minecraft’.”

Minecraft is definitely an odd choice. A square peg in a round hole just isn’t going to work…

The game itself includes a funny little sex reference: as spotted by Reddit user Brunky89890, if you manage to do 69 points of damage to your enemy then your character will giggle like a school kid. It’s pretty quiet, but you can check it out via this link.

Borderlands 3 launched last week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and via the Epic Games Store.
