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."

Offering parental leave for new fathers could help close the gender gap, removing the unfair "motherhood penalty" women receive for taking time off after giving birth. However, a new study finds that parental leave also has a pay gap. Men are less likely to take time off, however, when they do, they're more likely to get paid for it.

A survey of 2,966 men and women conducted by New America found that men are more likely to receive paid parental leave. Over half (52%) of fathers had fully paid parental leave, and 14% of fathers had partially paid parental leave. In comparison, 33% of mothers had fully paid parental leave and 19% had partially paid parental leave.
