A teacher is going to unusual lengths to spread his love of sums by uploading maths lessons to PornHub.

Speaking to Mel Magazine, Changhsu, who has a master’s degree in mathematics, explained that he turned to the platform hoping he would reach large numbers of people who might then sign up for his online courses.

“Since very few people teach math on adult video platforms, and since there are so many people who watch videos on them, I thought that if I uploaded my videos there, a lot of people would see them,” he said.

He admitted he suspects a lot of people watch his videos as a joke but “people may not be interested in my videos, but they’ll all know there’s a teacher who teaches calculus on an adult video platform,”

The Taiwanese teacher previously relied on YouTube to spread his maths expertise and he has posted 226 videos on the platform to 21,000 subscribers.

But it seems that posting on the porn site is paying dividends as he has 1.6 million video views on the platform, directing business to his online course.

Here is an example of one of his lessons but from YouTube.

Nevertheless, this career path was... unexpected. “I didn’t want to teach math on Pornhub,” he said. “I wanted to let the world know that I’m a teacher from Taiwan who can teach calculus well.”

That he has.
