Unfortunately, while the show brings into the spotlight the desire among teens for clarity on topics of sex and puberty, it’s also making it harder to access real sex education content online.
The show’s title, Sex Education, is a play on the unofficial sex therapy service that the main character offers his fellow students. Clever. Cute. Likely seemed like a very harmless choice.
But now in the world of the wide web, the term ‘sex education’ signifies Netflix’s TV show first, and the actual resources that people in need of actual sex education seek out, second.
When you Google ‘sex education’, the entire first page of results is dedicated to the show, and it continues to dominate most results for the first three pages and permeates even further.
The results are similar when sex education is searched on YouTube.
Google and YouTube are the two main search platforms that people use to seek out the answers to sex ed-related questions, and it’s unfortunate that a byproduct of the show’s popularity is burying that information.
With the dogmatic resistance to improve inadequate sex education programmes in schools, the obstacles between young people and sufficient resources are already taking their toll.
Whether this outcome is something that Netflix considered with this show is impossible to say, but it definitely signals the need for more accessible sex ed beyond the self-driven internet search.
People have a lot of questions, and if the answers are being buried beneath pop culture content with great SEO (search engine optimisation) then we need to be proactive with solutions.
There should be places people know they can have their sex ed questions answered, because Google and YouTube results are a muddied mess.
When Pornhub Gives Out Free Premium Access For Valentine's Day, People Do Not Hold Back
Horny: Valentine's Day Edition.
Valentine’s Day may be a contrived holiday, but it definitely succeeds at its mission to get love on the brain. And while essentially every holiday results in an event-specific spike in Pornhub traffic (see: Halloween to be spooked), no other day is quite as obviously linked to porn as Valentine’s Day.
Which is why every year, Pornhub gifts 24 hours of free access to the exclusive premium content as a V-Day prezzie for all the horny users out there.
As the world’s largest porn site, Pornhub Insights are a pretty bang on depiction of our porn-watching behaviour, and the Valentine’s Day trends reveal just how randy we are on this hallowed day.
Last year, searches went up for ‘valentine’ by 3481%, ‘cupid’ up by 652%, and ‘love’ up by 244%. No kink-shaming, but I’m afraid to see what kind of sketches comes up when you search ‘cupid’ on Pornhub.
The Pornhub Premium Valentine’s Day promotion obviously gets people indulging in some content they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. A lot of people. The traffic to premium on Valentine’s Day 2018 went up by 308%.
We clearly know an opportunity when we see one.
Premium means ad-free access to over 100,000 full-length videos from top studios in HD, plus the exclusive content you can’t see for free. So people tend to go after that specifically premium content during the one day offer, to see what they’ve been missing.
