Pornography site Pornhub released a study today that examines the relationship between traffic on its website and major sporting events (also holidays and major worldwide happenings).

The results? With a 22% softening of normal porn traffic figures, Super Bowl XLVI (Giants-Patriots) caused a greater decrease in porn viewing in the U.S. than the 2012 World Series (Giants-Tigers; down 7%), and the Heat's 2012 Game 5 clincher over Oklahoma City (16% decline). The graphic is interactive, enabling all you amateur sociologists to further explore the relationship between sports, world events, and porn.

Pornhub also observed that traffic spikes as soon as events conclude. Thankfully, the observations end there. [Hypervocal]
