Ironically, This Is The Most Common Word Used In Porn Site Comments

“Love” is a commonly commented word on porn sites, ironically. But the research is clear—porn can have devastating impacts on relationships.

At the end of every year, legitimate companies and other organizations typically release an annual report that details what happened in the previous 365 days.

These reports usually contain numbers, statistics, charts, figures, and breakdowns of the past year, and then what the company projects for the upcoming year.

Unfortunately, giant porn websites have become so mainstream that they are beginning to do the same. In their seemingly never-ending effort to normalize pornography in society, Pornhub collects detailed analytics from their site and releases a “year in review” containing all the information.

How ironic is that?

Right amongst words that we had to blur out because of their explicit and graphic nature, the most common word in porn site comment sections is the word “love.”

How ironic is it that one of the main places that you get the furthest from real love is where the word pops up the most in people’s online conversations?

On the surface, porn may seem harmless, or may even seem like a good way to learn more about sex and relationships. Maybe a committed relationship seems far away in the future, or you feel confident that a little porn won’t harm your relationships.
