These U.S. States Were Watching Porn While You Were Watching the World Series

Baseball is a long, hard sport. Game five of the 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros lasted five hours and 17 minutes, which is an incredibly long time for anyone to watch a single event.

So naturally, some fans fired up a little porn.

Camsoda, an adult webcam site where users can tip performers with digital tokens, kept track of spending patterns and location data during the 2017 World Series, and the results are pretty great. Users from Texas and California, of course, were on the site significantly less than usual during the series, but even they weren’t immune to the long slog of a five-hour game.

Game two of the World Series was a four hour, 19 minute marathon which the Astros won 7-6 in the 11th inning—and if the data is any indication, some people seem to have gotten bored. Texans started spending 30 percent more tokens on Camsoda compared to the previous night—a comparatively shorter two-and-a-half-hour game won 3-1 by the Dodgers.

In Game 5, which the Astros won 13-12 in the 10th, porn consumption also jumped—a more-than-50-percent change in Texas and nearly-25-percent change in California, compared to the previous night.

Across the country, the World Series had a profound effect on Camsoda’s top 10 states. Out of the top 10, California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia all spent less on Camsoda tokens during the series.

Georgia, New York, and New Jersey, however, decided that porn was more important. The latter two made for the funniest and most predictable data: Users from New York spent 84 percent more on Camsoda than normal after the Astros beat the Yankees. Yankees fans drowned their sorrows by paying online performers unprecedented amounts (we’re not sure why Georgia spent 36 percent more during the World Series, seeing as the Atlanta Braves didn’t even make the playoffs, but do your thing, Georgians).
