Amidst the mayhem that the deadly coronavirus has created in Italy in the past few weeks, people of the European nation are in for some pleasant surprise as Pornhub has taken the responsibility to lessen their boredom. The Italian peninsula has gone into a complete lockdown to combat the disease as national death toll has surged past 1,000. With a total of 1,24,000 cases of coronavirus reported worldwide, Italy currently has the second-highest number of confirmed cases after China at around 15,000.

The adult content website said on Thursday that it will offer Italians free premium subscription for an entire month while they are cooped indoors amidst the lockdown. It mentioned that the Italian customers choosing the premium subscription would not need to provide their credit card details to avail of the services.

The adult company has also promised to donate money to help the European nation in these testing times. “Pornhub is donating its March proceeds from Modelhub to support Italy during this unfortunate time. Italy will also have free access to Pornhub Premium throughout the month. Forza Italia, we love you!” the porn site said on Twitter.

The world’s biggest porn site with 115 million daily visitors said that it has taken the step to encourage Italians to stay indoors and curb the spread of the deadly disease. According to the company’s year in review, the European country ranked seventh in Pornhub's top 20 countries by traffic in 2019. The review chart also stated that the average Italian spends approximately 10 minutes and 5 seconds on the website.

Meanwhile, ‘sick’ coronavirus porn videos, that show people having sex wearing hazmat suits and masks, have started trending on Pornhub. The titles of such videos include "TSA Agent Detains Woman Suspected of Coronavirus" and "Deserted Wuhan."
