Pornhub Now Gives Away College Scholarships Apparently

Pornhub is probably best known to college kids for it’s porn…obviously. However, now its trying to be known for their scholarship give away? I guess I do like porn after all.
The website is offering a $25,000 scholarship to any student with a 3.2 GPA or higher and a knack for making people happy – and no, they don’t mean sexually. All you have to do is one of two things: submit a 1000-1500 word essay answering the question, “How do you strive to make others happy?” or submit a 2-5 minute video that embodies the “good work that you do and anything else that you might want to say,” according to Pornhub.
In the past, Pornhub has been known to do charity work (oddly) with something they like to call “Pornhub Cares.” Their previous efforts were something more relatable to porn, such as “Save The Boobs” for breast cancer, “Save The Balls” for testicular cancer, and “Give America Wood” for Arbor Day.
I’m still very confused as to how this college scholarship has anything to do with porn but hey, we’ll take what we can get, RIGHT? Even so, while us college kids might be all about it, others are not. According to Washington PostIrene Tsepnopoulos-Elhaimer from Women Against Violence Against Women said, “The porn industry must be held accountable for violence and exploitation of women. This is an opportunity for post-secondary institutions and their leaders to refuse to be complicit.”
Pornhub’s vice president, Corey Price, however, said, “If you’re against pornography and an anti-pornography crusader, this is probably not the scholarship for you.”
And nobody can argue with that. Money is money, whether it be coming from Pornhub or the lottery, it’s all good to me. Pornhub just makes one thing very clear: they will not be consider any sex tapes for the scholarship winner. Sorry to burst your bubble, kids.
