Pornhub’s new environmental campaign means you can now watch adult videos guilt-free.

Do you feel guilty about watching porn? If so, you're not alone.


A 2014 survey published in The Atlantic found that only 29 percent of Americans think watching porn is morally acceptable. Men and women have very different opinions on the issue: Only 23 percent of women approve, while 35 percent of men think it's okay.

Pornography is a controversial subject: Videos can range be anything from married couples enjoying one another consensually to depraved acts that dehumanize everyone involved, including the viewer.

Conversely, studies suggest that as the availability of porn increases, the incidences of sexual assault decrease.

For those who see porn as a guilty pleasure, Pornhub wants you to feel better about spending time on the site.

Back in April, the site launched “Beesexual," a collection of bee pollination videos voiced by some of the sites most popular adult performers including Julia Ann, Daya Knight, Olivia Austin, Joanna Angel, Dante Colle, Domino Presley, Will Pounder, Avery Black, and Charlotte Stokely.

According to the site, “Beesexual" is “a whole new genre of porn especially dedicated to saving bees," the site reads. “We turned short videos of foraging bees into what they really are: nature porn, but now featuring the voices of some of your favorite porn stars."

The good news is that for each view of a video on its Beesexual channel, Pornhub will donate money to “bee saving charities across the world."

The bees and the rest of the planet could really use the money.

According to ABC News, over the past 15 years, bee colonies have been disappearing across the world in what's known as “colony collapse disorder." National Geographic says that some regions have seen losses of up to 90 percent.

Honey bee pollination is responsible for over $20 billion in annual crop production every year in the U.S. alone.

“With over 110 million daily visitors, we thought our users could come together to lend a helping hand and help conserve this precious species," Pornhub's Vice President Corey Price said in a statement. “It's our duty to ensure that bees continue to fornicate and pollinate."

Department of Justice employees were stunned this week when the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) sent court employees a morning briefing that contained a link to a "news" item on VDare, a white nationalist website.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, VDare is an "anti-immigration hate website" that "regularly publishes articles by prominent white nationalists, race scientists and anti-Semites." The website was established in 1999 by its editor Peter Brimelow.

The morning briefing is distributed to all EOIR employees on a daily basis, including all 440 immigration judges across the U.S.

"Seventy percent of the Earth is covered with water, now you camp on it!" proudly declares Smithfly on the website for its new camping boat — the Shoal Tent.

Why have we waited so long for camping equipment that actually lets us sleep on the water? Because it's an awful idea, that's why.

We've all felt lonely at some point in our lives. It's a human experience as universal as happiness, sadness or even hunger. But there's been a growing trend of studies and other evidence suggesting that Americans, and people in general, are feeling more lonely than ever.

It's easy to blame technology and the way our increasingly online lives have further isolated us from "real" human interactions. The Internet once held seemingly limitless promise for bringing us together but seems to be doing just the opposite.

Except that's apparently not true at all. A major study from Cigna on loneliness found that feelings of isolation and loneliness are on the rise amongst Americans but the numbers are nearly identical amongst those who use social media and those who don't. Perhaps more importantly, the study found five common traits amongst those who don't feel lonely.

In September 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland. By April 1940, the gates closed on the Lodz Ghetto, the second largest in the country after Warsaw.

Throughout the war, over 210,000 people would be imprisoned in Lodz.

Among those held captive was Henryk Ross. He was a Jewish sports photographer before the Nazi invasion and worked for the the ghetto's Department of Statistics during the war. As part of his official job, he took identification photos of the prisoners and propaganda shots of Lodz' textile and leather factories.

Joey Grundl, a pizza delivery driver for a Domino's Pizza in Waldo, Wisconsin, is being hailed as a hero for noticing a kidnapped woman's subtle cry for help.

The delivery man was sent to a woman's house to deliver a pie when her ex-boyfriend, Dean Hoffman, opened the door. Grundl looked over his shoulder and saw a middle-aged woman with a black eye standing behind Hoffman. She appeared to be mouthing the words: "Call the police."

"I gave him his pizza and then I noticed behind him was his girlfriend," Grundl told WITI Milwaukee. "She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words, 'Call the police.'"
