In case you don’t have any liberal friends clogging your feeds with slacktivist nonsense, Upworthy is one of the first sites that exist entirely because of Facebook shares and their resulting traffic. Even if you’re not familiar, some of their usual headlines which look something like “Married Dude Is Shocked Woman He Sexually Harassed Stands Up To Him, Takes Him Down, And Tapes It All” or “These Women Once Wanted To Shed Their Skin; You Won’t Believe Their Reasoning” definitely will look familiar since every site on Earth has adopted some form of it.
Enter PornHub, a site with very little inspirational content. How can we make it more of a mainstream media destination? Easy, with these inspirational stories crafted by the cleverly named Fapworthy.org that actually link to porn videos with similarly related subject matter. It’s one of my favorite real things the Internet has done in a while.
Now this is the future of the Internet. A world where it’s not a crime to admit you watch porn in front of a large group. A future where you can accidentally click “Like” on the completely pointless share buttons on your favorite porn site without your entire world crumbling around you as a result. A place where you can be inspired yet still leave a Holocaust of your potential future children in a trusty sock that now has the texture of cardboard. Dream along with me, gentlemen. Let the glow of shameless pornography consumption shine through.
