The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Has Lead To A Decrease In Porn Traffic

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had just been released earlier this month, and the game's been getting some pretty great reviews. Fanboys are generally happy, but you know who isn't happy? Youporn.com.

According to Mashable, the site has been reporting a 15 percent drop in traffic ever since the release of the Nintendo Switch. Who would've thought that Breath of the Wild would be actively affecting the online porn industry?

On the upside (?), porn searches for "Zelda" and "Link" have risen up to more than a hundred percent. Other Nintendo characters like Mario, Princess Peach, and Bowser (for some reason) have also seen a rise in searches, and some have even been searching "Nintendo" itself.

It's still a mystery when the porn vs. games scale would achieve equilibrium again, but as of now, the porn industry has a whole new window of opportunity. You think it would go so far to out-shadow Overwatch's porn numbers? Probably not.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently available for purchase.
