Coronavirus and porn have made strange, if not entirely surprising, bedfellows from the beginning. Now, in addition to housing a vast collection of coronavirus-themed porn, Pornhub is looking to give back by offering support to the fight against the pandemic.

On Tuesday, the adult entertainment platform announced it would be donating 50,000 surgical masks to New York area medics and first responders, including EMTs, paramedics and the the Uniformed Firefighters Association, as well as nurses, physicians and support staff caring for coronavirus patients at Mount Sinai South Nassau.

In addition to the mask donation, Pornhub announced it would also be donating €50,000 to various European organizations to assist in the purchase of additional masks and medical equipment, as well as $25,000 to Sex Workers Outreach Project to help support sex workers whose lives and livelihoods have been affected by the pandemic.

The move marks Pornhub’s latest contribution to the booming field of charity porn, of which the platform became something of an early pioneer when the company launched Pornhub Cares back in 2015. In recent years, Pornhub has raised money and awareness for a variety of causes, including ocean-pollution relief and Pornhub’s own scholarship fund.

Meanwhile, along with its latest charitable contribution, Pornhub also announced it would begin offering Pornhub Premium at no cost worldwide for 30 days in an attempt to keep everyone inside and entertained throughout the coronavirus quarantine.

“With nearly one billion people in lockdown across the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important that we lend a hand and provide them with an enjoyable way to pass the time,” said Pornhub vice president Corey Price in a press release. “We hope by expanding our offer of free Pornhub Premium worldwide, people have an extra incentive to stay home and flatten the curve.”

So while Pornhub is out fighting the good fight against a global pandemic, you can do your part by staying home and jacking off to free porn. Not a bad deal.
