Porn company ImLive wants people to stay home and listen to the medical experts when it comes to social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Not only does ImLive want people to stay home, but they’ve started a “Stay Home, Don’t Date” campaign to get people to stop dating and seeing each other during the pandemic. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I’m signing the “Stay Home, Don’t Date” petition on Change.org to encourage everyone to continue practicing safe, physical distancing, especially those of you who are tempted to go out and date! Even though we are separated physically, it doesn’t mean that we have to feel alone. As a part of this petition, I’m taking the “I’m Live with Friends” challenge that I’ll be posting later. Snap a picture of yourself live chatting with friends and post it using #IMLIVEWITHFRIENDS, tag @ImLivewithFriends, and challenge 3 others to do the same. Let’s show the world how we’re staying home but still socially connecting with friends. In return, ImLive is donating $1 for every person who completes the challenge to Covid-19 relief! Remember, Stay home, don’t date! @stayhomedontdate #STAYHOMEDONTDATE https://www.change.org/stayhomedontdate

As I’ve said before, nobody moves the needle in the marketing game better than porn companies do. That’s just a fact. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

There’s really no way to disagree with that. Pornhub regularly sets the internet on fire by releasing search data during interesting times throughout the year. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

As for staying apart from each other, I haven’t seen a woman in over 40 days. When given the choice between saving football and spending time with the gentler sex, I decided to save the soul of a nation.

You don’t have to thank me, but don’t forget what I was willing to sacrifice when my country asked.

If I can give up women, then you can do your part to keep us all safe. Together, we’ll win the war and come back stronger than ever!
