Your porn viewing just got a whole lot more secure

If you don't want anyone snooping on you while you voyeuristically watch (at least) two people you've never met have sexual intercourse with each other, then you're in luck.

Pornhub has announced that it and sister site YouPorn will adopt HTTPS encryption from April 4.

What this means is that people won't be able to snoop on what you're doing on the sites. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider, acronym fans) will still be able to know you're on YouPorn, but they won't know that you're really into Rocket Racoon x Groot scenes.

Encryption is a big topic of debate when it comes to online safety and snooping, especially when it comes to social media.

WhatsApp was hit with criticism when it was reported that governments could use a "back door" method to intercept messages, despite their encryption features.

There's a simple way to find out if you've ever been the victim of a big website's data leak, which we highly recommend you do.

And while we're on the subject of choking the chicken, YouPorn recently blamed a big loss of traffic on (what else) the launch of the Nintendo Switch.

However, searches for Nintendo characters like Link and, errrr, Bowser increased.

If you've ever wanted to know what VR porn is like, we actually tried out and it was like losing your virginity for the very first time (or so said our former tech editor, at least).

Let's wrap things up with a classic masturbanger, shall we?
