Pornhub launches online Sexual Wellness Center

The largest pornography site on the Internet, Pornhub, has something of a reputation for philanthropy. It has hosted a series of events to raise awareness of breast cancer, offering free breast exams on its ‘Boob Bus’, donating a penny to breast cancer charities for every 30 videos watched in its ‘Big Tit’ and ‘Small Tit’ categories, and launching an environmental campaign called ‘Pornhub Gives America Wood’, promising to plant a tree for every 100 videos watched on the site’s ‘Big Dick’ category. 15,473 trees were planted as a direct result of that campaign.

Another attempt to cut atmospheric carbon dioxide levels came in the form of a wristband containing a kinetic energy generator. Primarily aimed at men and powered by a certain up and down motion associated with viewing the site’s content, the device can be used to charge consumer electronics. Touted as ‘dirty energy’, the device allowed users to love the planet while loving themselves.

In addition to these imaginative and humorous efforts, Pornhub is now making a serious effort to contribute to the wellbeing of its users with its new Sexual Wellness Center. It is fronted by Dr. Laurie Betito, a noted broadcaster, author, clinical psychologist and therapist on the topics of love, sex and relationships. Other contributors so far are a clinical neuroscientist with an interest in childhood sexual abuse and suicide, a clinical sexologist, a sex researcher with a Ph.D. in developmental psychology, a trans woman artist and photographer, and a ‘career pervert’ who writes about consent, toys, and kinky stuff. At the time of writing the site has only been live for a few days, but they seem to have a serious team together and the jokiness of the other efforts described above seems to be kept at bay.

The site contains information about Reproductive Health, STDs, male and female anatomy, as well as Relationships, including topics such as Achieving Enduring Love and Intimacy. It provides a canvas for discussion of a wide variety of topics, like the link between antidepressants and sexual dysfunction, contraception methods, menopause, and so on.

"As the premiere destination for adult entertainment, catering to nearly 70 million daily visitors, we wanted to provide our fans with a trusted educational platform they can utilize as their go-to resource for information and advice when it comes to sex," said Corey Price, Vice President of Pornhub in a press release.

Dr. Laurie Betito described the potential to connect with Pornhub's estimated 70 million daily visitors as a "dream".

"Heading the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center is an opportunity to reach a global audience and provide a source for healthy sexual education and dialogue. I'm very excited for the amazing work I have partnered to accomplish," she said.
