This month marks the 35th anniversary of the release of arguably the most iconic video game ever, Super Mario Bros., and Nintendo has been pulling out all the stops to celebrate. That, of course, hasn’t stopped fans from finding, um, other ways to show their love and appreciation for everyone’s favorite turtle-stomping Italian plumber siblings.
Masturbation. We’re talking about masturbation.
Pornhub Insights dedicated its most recent post to a deep dive of all things Mario Bros. “in honor” of nearly four decades’ worth of what once was simple, wholesome family entertainment. The findings? Nobody wants to fuck poor ol’ Luigi.
Despite a whopping 142% increase in Mario and Mario-adjacent searches following Nintendo’s announcements, Pornhub reveals that no one—and we mean no one—wants to hop in the sack with Mario’s brother. In fact, the only Super Mario character less desirable than Luigi is Birdo, which, if we’re being honest, is baffling on a pornographic level. Just look at this thing.
