NEW YORK, N.Y.—Following a month-long campaign to raise funds for breast cancer research, Pornhub.com has donated $75,000 to several U.S.-based grassroots charities.

Throughout October, Pornhub’s “Save the Boobs” campaign vowed to contribute 1 cent for every 30 views of its “Small Breasts” and “Big Breasts” videos, meaning the more boobs that were viewed, the more money that would be donated to the important cause. Both of the video categories racked-up about 75 million views from big-hearted porn supporters around the world.

After an extensive search for charity partners, Pornhub handed over individual checks worth up to $25,000 to several organizations including the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund, which funds young scientists within the research labs at Fox Chase Cancer Center, and Cancer Sucks Inc., an organization which partners with multiple charities throughout the United States.

The labs at Fox Chase Cancer Center have been credited with significant scientific discoveries within the breast cancer research community, and it's a charity that former AVN publisher Paul Fishbein has contributed to and raised money for, for years.

“Our Save the Boobs campaign has drawn incredible support from both new and long-time viewers of Pornhub,” stated a Pornhub spokesperson. “It was in our very best interest to ensure that our considerable donation went to charities that would contribute 100 percent to the fight against breast cancer. Breast cancer research and awareness is an important initiative for us and we wish each of the charities the best in their future endeavors.”

Pornhub’s Save the Boobs campaign helped to draw international media attention to National Breast Cancer Month.

But this isn’t the first time the website has taken action to combat breast cancer. Earlier this year the website brought its “Save the Boobs” bus to NYC to rescue Manhattan’s mammories by offering free breast exams and spreading awareness.
