Though Pornhub's videos are not always about using protection, when it comes to the lives of the first responders working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, the adult site is all for help.

The porn site has donated 50,000 surgical masks to New York City-area workers who are working tirelessly amid the coronavirus outbreak. It has also opened up its massive porn library for free.

The donations from Pornhub is the part of the company’s 'COVID-19 relief efforts', which was announced on Wednesday, March 25. The relief comes as health workers in the Big Apple and elsewhere reported a shortage of the masks as the deadly virus threatens to overwhelm them.

Long Island’s Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital has received at least 20,000 protective gear from the adult content website as a donation. Joe Calderone, senior vice president at the hospital said, “These masks are mission-critical in the fight against the COVID pandemic. They will help keep our nurses, physicians and support staff safe from infection while caring for those who are stricken with the disease.”

Pornhub has also donated  15,000 masks to FDNY EMS Local 2507, the labor union for New York City paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and fire inspectors, while the remaining 15,000 were sent to Uniformed Firefighters Association Local 94, which represents FDNY firefighters. The company is also offering help to organizations in Germany, Italy, and Spain by donating them about $54,000 (50,000 euros) so that they can buy additional protective gear and medical equipment.

Moreover, Porhub’s premium service, which normally costs $9.99 a month, will be free across the globe for the next 30 days. “With nearly one billion people in lockdown across the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important that we lend a hand and provide them with an enjoyable way to pass the time,” the company’s vice president Corey Price said in a statement.

However, it is not like the world’s biggest porn site is only taking care of the first responders and its audiences. The company is also helping its models by letting them keep all of the profits from videos they sell in April after a processing fee is deducted. It is also donating $25,000 to the Sex Workers Outreach Project, an advocacy group, to support relief funds for sex workers affected by the global public health crisis.

Earlier, in March, Pornhub has offered a free premium subscription to Italians for an entire month while they are cooped indoors amid the lockdown. It mentioned that the Italian customers choosing the premium subscription would not need to provide their credit card details to avail the services.

The adult company has also promised to donate money to help the European nation in the crisis. “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 tweeted.

According to the company’s year in review, Italy 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.
