What Fifty Shades of Grey has done to Pornhub searches

Pornhub, the world's biggest adult video site, has published data showing the huge increase in searches for BDSM - particularly from women - since the release of the film on Valentine's Day.

Cinema has come to affect our lives and views in real and meaningful ways. For instance, after the release of the film Sideways, Merlot became more difficult to move off of shelves while Pinot Noir enjoyed a 16 per cent spike in sales.

Deer hunting decreased by nearly half for a few years after Bambi. In the same vein, the recent release of the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey has been shaking things up over here at Pornhub.
