THE 10 GREATEST THINGS PORN HAS DONE FOR THE WORLD

If there’s one impressive success story over the last few decades of human achievement, it’s porn. What was once the domain of creepy dudes in stained raincoats cranking their hog in filthy back rooms is now a multi-billion dollar industry that has permeated every facet of human sexuality. Sure, you could argue that watching porn gives dudes unrealistic expectations about things girls like on their face, but let’s try to be positive here. In this feature, we’ll share ten amazing ways that pornography and pornographers have made the world a better place.

Give America Wood
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Free-smut monolith PornHub has a reputation for saucy public relations antics, and a few of them are even charitable. Take what they did for Arbor Day in 2014. One of America’s less-loved holidays, Arbor Day celebrates the natural wonder of trees and encourages people to plant them. PornHub got in on the act by pledging to plant a single tree for every 100 “big dick” videos watched on the site in the week after Arbor Day. Yes, just by watching girls take wood, you could reverse the buildup of carbon dioxide and help slow global warming. Sounds like a pretty good deal.

Squeeze-A-Thon
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Japan has a funny relationship with adult entertainment — censoring naughty bits with pixel patterns while broadcasting ultra-gross tentacle hentai is just the tip of the iceberg. But a gaggle of Japanese adult video actresses stepped out on the town in 2014 to benefit the Japan Foundation for AIDS Prevention with a “squeeze-a-thon.” For a donation, men could step up and squeeze the tits of their choice of nine different porn stars. The event has repeated in subsequent years, each time pulling in a sizable crowd who are willing to part with some cash to get a handful of mammaries.

Gay Marriage Support
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
There have been lots and lots of studies on what porn does to our brains, with less than conclusive results. The general consensus is that watching dirty movies isn’t explicitly bad for you in moderation, and may in fact carry with it some unexpected benefits. One of those was revealed in a 2014 article in Communication Research. A team of scientists quizzed men on their porn intake and their support for same-sex marriage, and discovered a striking correlation: the more smut you watch, the more likely you are to support marriage equality. The theory is that opening your eyes to different kinds of arousal increases your empathy for other people, which is pretty awesome.

F*ck For Forest
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Here’s another naughty enterprise that’s designed to give a little extra love to Mother Earth. Norwegian alt-porn site F*ck For Forest is a collection of hippies showing it all off, and all the money collected goes to rainforest preservation. Since the project started, they’ve raised over $300,000 for their causes, which is a pretty serious sum! Over 2000 people have donated their images and videos to the website, and if you’re into hippies (especially pale Northern European ones), chances are you’ll find something you like here. This is porn activism at its most primal and un-airbrushed, and kudos to the organizers for keeping it real in the 21st century.

Come4
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Let’s face it: Porn is a business, and the vast majority of the money that it makes goes into the pockets of big corporations. But what if porn could pay for charities? That’s the concept behind Come4, which combines crowdsourcing and smut to fund worthy causes. Visitors can upload their own dirty content and link it to a charity. And 50 percent of the advertising revenue and donations brought in from that content, whether it be videos, pictures or whatever, go straight to that charity. It’s a charming and clever initiative that repurposes wanking to help out the disadvantaged. The site is still in pre-launch, but they hope to get content up by the summer.

Save The Boobs
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Let’s check in again with our friends at PornHub for one of their most successful charity campaigns ever. We all love boobs, right? Meaty mammaries are made for nursing infants, but there’s something about them that grown men remain interested in. In 2015, the company launched a “Save The Boobs” campaign to raise money for breast cancer awareness. For the month of October, they set aside a penny for every 30 “big tit” and “small tit” videos browsers watched, and they watched a lot of videos. At the end of the month, PornHub had $75,000 to donate to charity, and also set up a kiosk for free breast exams in New York City. That sounds a little suspicious, but we’ll allow it.

Satire Of Public Figures
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
The First Amendment is one of the most important parts of the Constitution — it’s what gives us the freedom to write the crazy stuff we put up here without worrying about being shut down by prudes. And one of the most important rulings in free speech law came courtesy of a pornographer. When fire and brimstone pastorJerry Fallwell sued Larry Flynt, publisher of skeevy smut rag Hustler, over a parody advertisement in the November 1983 issue that described him losing his virginity to his mother in an outhouse, the case went all the way to the Supreme Court. They ruled 8-0 that public figures can’t sue for emotional distress from parody, opening the doors for satirists to do their jobs.

Boys Town
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
When you see injustice in the world, you fight it in any way you can. For Mike Kulich, that’s making gay porn. The son of Russian immigrants owns Monarchy Distribution, a major distributor of man-on-man smut. Kulich is naturally concerned with gay rights in the land of his ancestors, and to make life better for LGBT people around the world he founded Boys Town Studios, a company that will make special films and donate the profits to a variety of nonprofits. Their first effort? “Put It In Putin,” which depicts the president of Russia having a saucy tryst with his bodyguard.

Pornhub Cares
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
We’ve all heard stories about young women getting into stripping or porn to pay their way through college. But what if we could fund some who didn’t have to? In 2015, Pornhub launched their “Pornhub Cares” scholarship program, where they gave $25,000 to the student who came up with the best answer for “how do you strive to make others happy?” Prospects also had to have over a 3.2 GPA and be legally old enough to watch porn. The company got over a thousand applications, and eventually chose a young woman named MaryAnn Uribe to receive the first scholarship.

E-Commerce
The Greatest Things Porn Has Done For The World
Yes, the Internet. In a very real way, the massive network that connects us all together exists because of porn. Sure, scientists and other geeks were using the World Wide Web in the ’90s to exchange data, but when the time came to monetize going online, it was porn that led the way. Starting in the mid-90s, stars like Danni Ashe recruited geeks to figure out a way to charge credit cards over the Web. It wasn’t until several years later that non-dirty enterprises caught on to the potential. Every time you make a purchase online, whether it’s plutonium or pizza, you owe a debt to the men and women of porn.
