The Worst Songs From Pornhub's Inexplicable Song Search Contest

It's anyone's guess why the world's largest porn site is trying to get into music (maybe because no one likes paying for either?), but that's exactly what Pornhub is attempting to do. First it tried to make Coolio relevant again with a boring video featuring chicks wagging their silicon-filled breasts everywhere (this link is so NSFW that I really hope you get fired if you click it). Besides being more grotesque than arousing, Coolio seems as excited about titties as a thirteen-year-old who just discovered Playboy. Now, Pornhub wants to bring out the thirteen-year-old in you by hosting a songwriting contest.

The idea is to record a song related to porn or the site, post it to Pornhub, and maybe it will give you five grand to turn it into a slutty video featured on the site with 500,000 guaranteed views. No idea how those views are guaranteed, especially because the winning song is almost guaranteed to be completely awful.

Let's break down lust and see why this is so idiotic. You are a human being, a relatively gigantic cluster of cells with one purpose: create more cell clusters before your cluster breaks down and dies. So your body releases hormones that try to trick you into doing that. Nothing more. It's cool and all if you screw or jerk off, and it's certainly fun and feels great. Just remember they're not novel urges, therefore, are they really worth celebrating? Hormones are just zombie voices that constantly whisper "MUUUUUSST FUUUUUUUUUCK" until you give in for a moment of relief. It's hardly special.

Not that I'm above porn -- despite my best efforts, I'm only human. But let's not pretend masturbation is some kind of magical event.

So a long list of songs that celebrates the act is, of course, going to be pretty stupid. I tried to find a single example that was remotely good, but the best I could do is find a few meh tracks that aren't even worth mentioning. There seriously is nothing novel to say about touching yourself that the Divinyls haven't already covered. Without further ado, here are the worst songs from the Pornhub Song Search Contest.

"Tissues Or Socks" By Jacob Miller And Meghan Price Um, did someone hit Kimya Dawson over the head with a brick? At least these guys are trying to get creative (rather than screeching "Pussy!" over and over), but it's still a song about what you jizz into. What's next, a song about Q-tips and tampons? Thankfully, this is only a minute long.

"Pornhub Song" By Jesse Flores The Casio keyboard beats make this sound like a Wiggles song. I'm positive this kid has never touched a real boob before.

"Chorus At Your Fingertips" By Scooby It sounds like he's plinking a little kid's piano while "Scooby" (someone please sue him for copyright infringement) mutters about how many choices Pornhub has. If this guy ever walked into a Baskin-Robbins, he'd shit himself.

"Categories" By Xanax Attack Another song about how many different perverted options Pornhub offers. I have no idea what genre this is going for -- somewhere between growling "nipples" into a Darth Vader mask and sounds Jim Gaffigan's butt makes.

"Happy Porn" by the Shank Factory Maybe "Happy Porn" is a reference to all the fake smiles and fake orgasms? Nah, that'd be too conceptual. Instead, this sounds like a commercial for adult diapers.
