With character Jon Snow being stabbed by his own men in the finale episode of season five of period drama Game Of Thrones, the makers certainly played with the emotions of everyone who is an ardent follower of the show. Gladly for them, the sixth season is back and has aired the first episode easing the anxiety.

Game of Thrones is insanely popular and is one of the most pirated TV shows worldwide. The popularity is going so high that porn websites are losing visitors. According to a report Pornhub Insights blog shared that during the premiere of the first episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones, Pornhub’s traffic from the US saw a drop of four percent. A four percent drop in traffic is quite significant, considering that Pornhub has over 60 million daily visitors.

Also the report by Pornhub says that Game of Thrones was one of the top searches on the website. Throughout April, searches containing Game of Thrones were slightly above average, but shot up in the days before the season premiere, peaking at 370% on Sunday the 24th, the day the sixth season of Game of Thrones was first aired on television. The blog said that this could be due to fans wanting to revisit the nude and other graphic scenes from the show or the various porn parodies based on it.

Pornhub also broke down the data to find out searches containing the names of actors, actresses and their characters on the show. Emilia Clarke (playing Daenerys Targaryen) came out on top, which was followed by Natalie Dormer (playing Margaery Tyrell) and Sibel Kekilli (playing Shae). Although there were too few searches for male performers to rank in comparison to females, “Jon Snow” did some close.

Also during the previous season 5 there was an average 80% increase in Game of Thrones related searches.

This season of Game of Thrones broke the previous record it had created. Its first episode of Season 6 got almost 10.7 million viewers, which was about 9.7 million viewers in season 5.
