Can Someone Answer This? Why Do Porn Sites Have Social Media Sharing?


Last week was a holiday called “National Horny Day.” It is one hell of a time to have a holiday devoted to what happens in your pants when you brushed by someone’s leg especially during quarantine. But as I sat down to partake in celebrating this national holiday with a bottle of wine, some hand sanitizer (I must provide the finer things in life for the nether regions), and Pornhub, something left me aghast. Since, that faithful night a week ago, I can not eat. What I found is keeping me up all night. I feel I am a living embodiment of the scene from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia in which Charlie goes all conspiracy theorist. But I need to know the answer as to why social media sharing exists on porn sites.

It’s PornHub

As I sat down to watch a video that depicts puppet sex. You are not allowed to judge. Puppet boners are hilarious and somewhat sexy. I hit the play button to only see below the video the same social media sharing icon that is on every website. My mind started flowing with ideas and situations that could end a person’s entire world.

With one hand, I love the fact that performers can share their content with their fans. No matter what part of the entertainment world you are a part of, the fans are what make you. Being able to share the latest video with followers makes all the sense in the world.

IGNORE THE TITLE and focus on the share button. I know you are googling this.

But with the other hand, where my mind took me first, what about us average people who watch? We do not have followers. So, what happens when we share a video from Pornhub, Xhamster, or one of the countless others that allow social media sharing? I am not sure I need my mother or grandmother learning about what sexual kinks I happen to take part in. I have had some uncomfortable conversations with family in the past, and I am sure as I get older, I will deal with more of those. But a conversation with my mother over the best knot to use while practicing bondage is something that I just don’t need in my life. I am not sure there is enough alcohol on this planet to make comfortable for that conversation.

A few social media sites get upset if you even say the word boob, I am sure a video of a gang bang would make someone’s veins explode behind the scenes at The Facebook Company. (I just read that aloud, and while it brings me great shame, I typed it, I am going to leave it.)

All I want to know in this world is why social media share buttons are a thing on porn sites. I do not ask for much from this world, but hopefully someone can explain it to me in a way that will make sense. Until then, I will go back to the thumbtack board and try to make a connection between these share buttons and the 1919 Chicago White Sox.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
