That's Stimulating, Alright!

That's Stimulating, Alright!

Did you know that the warmer months (May, June, etc) are typically slow traffic times for adult entertainment sites? Yeah, we didn't think about it either—but maybe it makes sense, given the scantily clad individuals we see walking around the city during a heat wave. Why buy the cow, when you can get a peek for free? So it's fairly surprising that these sites have seen an uptick in viewers recently. One explanation? Extra money from Uncle Sam.

An online research firm says that 32% of respondents questioned referenced the stimulus check as part of their reason for renewing a membership or becoming a new customer. This statistic was from just one pay site the research firm regularly works with; however, after seven weeks of research and talking with members from 800 others sites, the general consensus was that the stimulus checks presented a way for people to entertain themselves, and adult entertainment sites were the preferred method of release (pun intended).

So we're not here to tell you how to spend your money, but if you're in debt, we hope you've put that check to less prurient use! After all, there's no one sexier than a guy or gal with a big...savings account. [Top Tech News]
