image for Pornhub Purges 10 Million Videos After Losing Credit Card Support

Pornhub is removing millions of videos in attempt to rid the adult site of child pornography and other illegal content.

As a result, Pornhub is pledging to only host videos created by official content partners and creators from the site’s verified models program.

“This means every piece of Pornhub content is from verified uploaders, a requirement that platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Snapchat, and Twitter have yet to institute,” the site said.

The crackdown appears to have eliminated at least 10 million videos.

Currently, when you visit, the search bar says it’s hosting 2.9 million clips—down from 13.5 million last week.

Nevertheless, the credit card providers pulled their support, dealing a massive blow to Pornhub’s attempts to attract and maintain paid users.

Pornhub is just one website owned by company parent MindGeek, which operates numerous adult video sites, including YouPorn and RedTube. »
