Red Dead Redemption Becomes A Porn Trend!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll likely have seen lots of red posters around, featuring the silhouettes of outlaws against a glorious orange sunset. One of the most anticipated games of the year, Red Dead Redemption 2, has hit the shelves, giving us the chance to go back to the wild west.

Of course there are some things that porn just can’t leave well enough alone. Whenever a big movie or game comes out, porn is on it. Porn connoisseurs are eager to find it in porn form, or at least something related to it. Here’s how Red Dead Redemption has become a porn trend.

What is Red Dead Redemption II?

The Red Dead series has proven to be a popular one. In 2004 we saw the first installation, Red Dead Revolver. While it was a popular game, it had nothing on the next game: Red Dead Redemption. It received phenomenal acclaim on its release, winning a number of ‘Game of the Year’ awards, and people couldn’t get enough of it. Personally, I never 100% completed the game… simply because I kept accidentally riding my horse off of cliffs.

This year saw the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. Although it only came out a week and a half ago, it has become hugely popular. The expansive world means that you can get lost in the wild west while on missions… although if you’re anything like me, you’ll spend more time stroking dogs.

The game is set in the wild west, meaning that outlaws, gunslingers, and cowboys are aplenty. Not since Clint Eastwood has the world been so fascinated with the wild west… so are we surprised that porn has gotten a hold of it?

What’s happening on Pornhub?

Whenever anything of interest happens in the world, Pornhub is there to show us that even the world of porn isn’t safe from it. On 31st October, the number of searches for Halloween increases massively. Leading up to the end of December, Christmas and Santa Clause start to trend. So what about Red Dead?

The statisticians on Pornhub wanted to see how Red Dead was changing the site. They noticed that people were searching for the game on their site. Perhaps they wanted a parody featuring bounty hunters being convinced not to take the person in? Either way, they found that there was a 731% increase in searches for the term ‘red dead’ on the site!

What is perhaps the most intriguing is just who was searching. Red Dead Redemption is a popular game series, and while a number of women are gamers, it seems that men are more interested in porn of it. Men were 1165% more likely to look for ‘red dead’ on the Pornhub site. They also discovered that those aged 18 to 34 were 93% more likely to look than anyone over the age of 35.

Kinky cowboys and wild westerns

Searching for Red Dead Redemption on Pornhub doesn’t yield a lot of results for porn. In fact, a lot of the videos you see are gameplay released of the game. Not great for anyone looking for something different to jerk off to!

Of course, Pornhub users are a little more on the ball than that. They know that, if they can’t find a porn parody, they can look for related terms instead. So Pornhub took a look to see if things like ‘wild west’, ‘western’, and ‘cowboy’ were trending.

Unsurprisingly, they were! ‘Cowboy’ saw a 189% increase in searches. A popular one, but it showed that people weren’t as bothered about cowboys as we might have thought. ‘Western’, on the other hand, saw a huge 489% increase, while ‘wild west’ saw 745%!

Gaming and porn trends

The top games and movies tend to have an influence on the current trending porn searches, so it is no wonder that Red Dead Redemption has started to trend now that the next game has been released. Are we surprised? Not really.

Gamers have a lot of fun, and there are even some amazing ways that they can spice up sex in a nerdy way. Maybe you can try these ideas with Red Dead for yourself?
