Pornhub is giving users around the world free access to its Pornhub Premium in a bid to encourage people to stay indoors amid the coronavirus pandemic

Pornhub is encouraging people around the world to stay home and practice social distancing amid the COVID-19 outbreak by offering them free access to more porn.

After giving users in Italy, France and Spain free access to Pornhub's Premium site last week, the portal is offering the free service to users across the globe as more countries impose lockdowns in a bid contain the spread of the deadly virus.

As the incidence of reported positive coronavirus cases continues to increase, countries across the globe are imposing stay-at-home orders in attempts to curb the spread of the virus.

These include India, the United Kingdom, Italy, South Africa, Spain and France. With a number of countries under lockdown, people are forced to isolate themselves. Pornhub wants to keep it that way by offering free access to its Premium site.

"Since this is a situation that continues to impact us all, we've decided to play our part in encouraging everyone to stay home and are launching Free Premium worldwide until April 23," Pornhub said in a blog post on Tuesday.

The company also said it would also be giving all its models a 100 per cent payout (excluding processing fees) from both Pornhub and Modelhub during the month of April, citing the financial impact of the pandemic.

All you have to do is sign up using the site's special "stay home" landing page and enjoy premium content for a month, completely free of charge. The only thing Pornhub asks in return is your commitment to either isolate yourself at home, or agree to regularly wash your hands and practise social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premium subscription, which typically costs about $9.99 a month, will give users access to Pornhub's exclusive full-length content, that is not only ad-free but also better in terms of quality and streaming speed, and it includes virtual reality (VR) videos.
