Porn website Pornhub has revealed it suffered a 10% drop in traffic on November 10 - and puts it down to the release of Fallout 4.

The release of the game, which is the latest in Bathesda's game series, was highly anticipated and it seems many Pornhub fans are also gamers.

"Thanks to the nifty (and entirely anonymized) “affinity” data that Google Analytics provides, we can see that many of our 60 million daily visitors are interested in gaming, based on their Google search and web browsing habit," they wrote on their website.

The porn site, which has 60 million daily visitors, saw a slight increase in users of 5% from 3-4am but once Fallout 4 was downloaded, around 5am, traffic began to drop.

The 10% drop was seen from 7am to 12 noon after which traffic returned to normal.

However, after 6pm it dropped again "when we assume that 9-5 workers arrived home and fired up their games."

By midnight, though, it seems the gamers may have had enough and fancied a catch up with their porn viewing as traffic on the porn site leaped as high as 15% above the daily average.
