The good people of Ireland — or should I say, bold people of Ireland — love themselves a little browse on a certain website by the name of Pornhub.

When the country battened down the hatches for Hurricane Ophelia, traffic went through the roof on this online hub of pornography (nowww we get the name).

However, when the sweetest, most wholesome show in the Irish television calendar hit the airwaves, there was a steep decline in the site's traffic of 12%. 

That's right, it seems The Late Late Toy Show puts the people of Louth, Meath, Westmeath, Kildare, Laois, Wexford, Waterford, Clare right off their hentai. Poor dears.

The figures were revealed in a newly released stats from its 2017 Year In Review. Other TV events that influenced porn usage were similarly innocent shows like the Great British Bake Off and Strictly Come Dancing in the UK and the Eurovision Song Contest Finale across Europe in general.

A dip also took place during the Game Of Thrones Premiere and Finale, presumably because viewers were getting their fill of nudity from the TV.
