Nothing deters watching porn more than the birth of Christ or the death of a terrorist. According to PornHub's page view analysis, people watch far less porn on major holidays—Christmas and Thanksgiving, especially—and on days in which major news events took place—jerking off was way down the day Osama Bin Laden was killed, for example.

On Christmas Eve, worldwide porn watching was down in every country, for an average decline of 22%, except for in Japan, where numbers held steady.

On Christmas Day, porn viewing was also down 22% on average, except, again, for Japan, where porn viewing actually increased by eight percent.

But the biggest holiday-related porn drop-off occurred on New Year's Eve, when average porn viewing was down across the globe by an average of 28 percent.

Major sporting and news events also led to a decrease.
