PornHub Reveals How Hawaiians 'Decompressed' After The False Missile Alert

Last week's false missile alert caused a striking drop in PornHub's traffic in Hawaii, which isn't surprising since the fear of imminent nuclear annihilation is probably a huge turnoff for everyone who isn't Major 'King' Kong from 'Dr. Strangelove.'

"Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
