"I think people are attracted to COVID-19-themed porn the same way people who are scared of their shadow are attached to horror movies: We are all searching for things that make us come alive. COVID-19 is something that brings fear and mystery to pretty much everyone in the world right now," said the porn star.

More than 100 videos are already live on the porn sites

"We thought we would use our porn as an avenue to get some legitimate information out with some comic relief included to get people interested and reduce our chances of being banned. This sparked the idea, knowing every current event ends up as a porn eventually, we knew people will be searching for it on less censored platforms like Pornhub," said Spicy.

Pornhub alone has more than 100 videos related to the coronavirus theme.
