Pornhub has proved to be an unlikely hero in the fight against the coronavirus after making its premium service free to the world pledging to donate 50,000 surgical masks.

As part of the company's efforts to help fight Covid-19, Pornhub is hoping its premium service will encourage people to stay at home and self-isolate.

Not only that, but tens of thousands of masks have been donated to the coronavirus frontline.

Long Island's Mount Sinai South Nassau hospital got 20,000 of the 50,000 masks sent from Pornhub. "These masks are mission critical in the fight against the Covid pandemic," Joe Calderone, senior vice-president of the hospital, shared in a Pornhub press release today.

"They will help keep our nurses, physicians and support staff safe from infection while caring for those who are stricken with the disease."

Pornhub also said they wanted to play their part in keeping people self-isolated as well as giving those in lockdown, like Kiwis, an "enjoyable" way to pass the time.

"With nearly one billion people in lockdown across the world because of the coronavirus pandemic, it's important that we lend a hand and provide them with an enjoyable way to pass the time," said Pornhub vice-president Corey Price.

"We hope by expanding our offer of free Pornhub Premium worldwide, people have an extra incentive to stay home and flatten the curve."

Starting March 24, users can sign up at the site's special "stay home" landing page to enjoy premium for the next month.

They will also be helping out employees who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, by offering performers 100 per cent of their video sales for April.

Additionally, Pornhub is donating $25,000 to the Sex Workers Outreach Project, contributing directly to relief funds for those impacted by Covid-19.
