Well, it seems like Pornhub may have had something going with the adult video website’s push to control the Zika virus by encouraging athletes and residents in Rio to stay in and wank off instead of engaging in casual sex. Either that or there’s just something about the Olympic Games that makes people feel frisky, because Pornhub statisticians found a spike in traffic during the 2016 Summer Games. Not just from the state of Rio de Janeiro, but across the world as users searched out Olympic-related porn.

This first chart shows a 15 percent spike in traffic in Rio alone on Aug. 6, the day after the games started.
