The world’s most popular porn site says web traffic spiked during the partial government shutdown.

The pornhub.com press release, which is safe for work, says “it’s as if Bill Clinton was back in office.”

Here’s how the excited porn purveyor put it: “Country wide there has been an increase of 4.5%, while the states with the highest spikes have been Nevada (up 42%), Oklahama (up 21%), and Florida (up 14%). Only Missouri (nicknamed the ’show me state’) is down 4.5%. … Maybe they’re providing all the new content instead of viewing it!”’

Here are the top 10 states with the % of increase in traffic for those states:

Nevada (42 percent)
Oklahoma (21.2 percent)
Florida (13.9 percent)
Georgia (8.2 percent)
New York (7.9 percent)
Illinois (6.3 percent)
Vermont (5.2 percent)
Pennsylvania (5.2 percent)
Maryland (5.2 percent)
Ohio (5.1 percent)

Should this really be a surprise based on multiple past reports, including this one, on a massive amount of porn viewing on the job at federal agencies?
