Will Millennials Pay To Stream Porn?

Popular porn site Pornhub has released a subscription streaming service. Will millennials pay to use it?

By Samantha Crook | August 7, 2015

The porn site Pornhub has a new streaming service, and the company is calling it the "Netflix of porn."

"That ... that is the Pornhub Premium of dresses," says a character in a Pornhub Premium promotion.

Yep, borrowing someone's account password will be more awkward than it already is for Netflix.

Millennials love streaming, and they make up 60 percent of Pornhub users.

But the bad news is they're used to getting porn for free. And they spend less time on Pornhub than older people do per visit, according to Pornhub's data. 

Skweezme released a similar streaming service last year, charging 99 cents per day on days you actually use it.

Maybe a pay-per-day model would be good for millennials' so-called "commitment issues"?

At $9.99 a month, Pornhub Premium actually costs a bit more than Netflix.

And tweeting about what you're watching — a big social aspect that helps make Netflix successful — is probably out of the question. (Video via Twitter)

Oh, and family movie night is definitely off the table with this streaming service.
