One of the most popular adult video sites in the world, Pornhub, is starting a new campaign to raise money for whale preservation.
According to a recent announcement, the website will give one cent for every 2,000 videos played on its site for the entire month, which actually could end up being a substantial amount of money because thousands of videos are played on the site every second. The funds will be donated to Washington’s Moclips Cetological Society, a charity that focuses on whale preservation.

In the press release published by Pornhub this week, the company said, “After nearly a century of commercial whaling and overfishing, there has been a major decline in the population of whales, which play a very important role in the health of our environment and our understanding of marine mammals. This is why it’s imperative that the environmental community continue its fight on all levels to help end the destruction, and why Pornhub has jumped in.”
Kenneth Balcomb, president of Moclips and executive director of the Center for Whale Research confirmed the campaign with Seattle PI in a recent interview.
Yes, I am aware of it, and the beneficiary is the reconstituted Moclips Cetological Society, a nonprofit that I originally founded in 1976 with a contribution from the owner of Apple Theater in Seattle (an adult theater). I thought it a fitting tribute to the charitable role of a segment of society that does not typically receive credit for its activities, or its philanthropy. Given what we have now learned about the sex lives of many species of whales, they would probably chuckle over any eyebrows raised by the humans’ concern for how other people live. Humans did not invent sex,” Balcomb said.
“Cetaceans – whales, dolphins and porpoises – are very sexual animals and have evolved a variety of fascinating social life histories beyond simple procreation. Although our primary goal is to ensure effective conservation for cetacean species, our academic goal is to educate the public about their social and biological lifestyles that readers might find very interesting,” he added.
Corey Price, Pornhub vice president said in a recent statement that the environment is very important to their company.
“Here at Pornhub, we care deeply about the environment and the preservation of wildlife. We’re now asking our community turn their attention to – and help save – a different type of blowhole, one that belongs to a majestic species that once swelled in numbers throughout the oceans before commercial industries initiated their demise,” Price said.
The charity effort will run through February 29th.
