According to Pornhub's very gross and super fascinating insights blog, the polar vortex caused Maine's normal porn consumption to rise almost 50 percent.

However, the state that had the biggest increase in pages visited — and also time on the site — was good ol' Florida.

Florida, which didn't drop to sub-zero temperatures like the rest of the country, did drop to record low temperatures. Which would explain all the free time on their hands.

Ok cool.
