Classic old X Tube! Anyone who has spent a large amount of time looking at porn on the internet (yes, I’m talking to you, dickweed) has likely heard of (or more likely, been to) the website known as Xtube.com. It is hard to spend any amount of time frequenting porn sites and not have heard of it, seeing as it is one of the largest porn tube sites in the world. In fact, they claim to be the first adult tube site on the internet, originally released in March of 2006.
With nearly 9 million users, Xtube has extremely impressive numbers for any website, let alone a porn tube. In fact, they do quite well for themselves when compared to every website in existence. According to Alexa’s web traffic reports, as of April 2018, they were ranked 705 in the United States.
X Tube is a part of the adult media juggernaut, Mindgeek, the company responsible for the entire Pornhub Network, including Porn Hub, Redtube, Youporn, Tube 8, and Spank Wire to name a few. Over the past decade or so, they have established quite the reputation for themselves. In 2012, Mindgeek owner, Fabian Thylmann attempted to buy rival tube site, Xvideos for $120 million in order to create a virtual porn tube monopoly.
Xvideos gave Thylmann a big middle finger in response, though, replying with simply, “Sorry, I have to go play Diablo II.” Well, do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars, Mr. Thylmann. That’s okay, though. I’m sure $200 would be chump change for someone with Porn Hub money.
