Hawaiians don't think of sex when they're under missile attack

Hawaii's Pornhub missile alert, or pleasuring yourself 'til the end of the world. Pornhub's statistics purport to show that Hawaiians don't think of sex when they're under missile attack. Really. But the moment they're safe again… Call me a prude, but the first thing I thought of when I saw Pornhub's statistics "Hawaii Missile Alert Traffic Change" was J.G. Ballard's 1973 novel, "Crash." It must have been the melding of sex and violence that did it. Or maybe - just maybe - it was that the hype over Pornhub's statistics borders on the mental. This is no flippant remark. Ballard's American publisher said the British author was "beyond psychiatric help," as he had written a book that explored the lives of a group of men and women who are obsessed with having sex while crashing cars. Sick, right? No. It was visionary. "Crash" speaks to a sense of utter boredom we feel despite being almost permanently stimulated. And Ballard saw it coming about 40 years ahead of his time.
