Danish politician who advertises on Pornhub: ‘you have to be where the voters are’

Danish politician Joachim Olsen, who advertised his campaign on Pornhub

Danish politician Joachim B Olsen is promoting his campaign in a unique way.

Tell me more

The 41-year-old former Olympic shot put silver medalist is now transitioning to a career in politics. He has been a member of the center-right Liberal Alliance party since 2011.

Ahead of Denmark’s 5 June general election, Olsen put an ad on Pornhub of a picture of him in a suit. The ad reads, ‘when you’re done wanking, vote for Jokke.’

‘Yes, it’s me on Pornhub,’ Olsen wrote on his Facebook page, confirming the advert.

Because of the ad, Olsen is now getting more media attention than his opposition, Rasmus Paludan. Paludan is the founder and leader of Denmark’s far-right, anti-immigrant party, Hard Line.

In response to this, Olsen said, ‘There is no limit to how far I will go for the nation. If it takes an ad on Pornhub to keep Rasmus Paludan out of the foreign media, I’ll take one for the team.’

Defending the ad

Additionally, Olsen defended the ad in an interview with the Danish Broadcasting Corporation,

‘You have to be where the voters are,’ he said.

According to Olsen, his campaign is ‘95% serious’ leaving room for ‘a little fun.’

‘I hope people get a good laugh. I have received a very positive response to it,’ he said.

Olsen added: ‘I am well aware that some people are outraged. One cannot say anything today without people being outraged.’

‘Those who know me as a politician, they know I’m a serious politician. But I also have humor, and I think this is fun.’

Pornhub is ‘extremely interested’ in buying Tumblr

Pornhub is interested in buying up Tumblr – and restoring its NSFW content – on news that owners are selling the blogging platform.

Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Verizon Communications is looking to sell Tumblr to stabilize business.

However, they do have at least one potential buyer. According to Buzzfeed, Pornhub is ‘extremely interested’ in acquiring Tumblr.

Why are Pornhub interested?

Verizon Communications owns several media platforms, including Yahoo!, HuffPost, and TechCrunch. After it failed to meet revenue targets, Verizon are flogging off Tumblr.

Pornhub vice president Corey Price said in an email to Buzzfeed that the porn-streaming giant is keen to buy the platform.

Price expressed that restoring the app’s NSFW edge would be a priority if the acquisition does happen.

‘Tumblr was a safe haven for those who wanted to explore and express their sexuality, adult entertainment aficionados included,’ Price told BuzzFeed News.

‘We’ve long been dismayed that such measures were taken to eradicate erotic communities on the platform, leaving many individuals without an asylum through which they could comfortably peruse adult content.

‘There are obvious synergies between the two brands and value Pornhub could derive from Tumblr.

‘We’re extremely interested in acquiring the platform and are very much looking forward to one day restoring it to its former glory with NSFW content,’ Price added.

Why did Tumblr ban adult content?

The acquisition comes in the wake of controversy.

Tumblr, typically known for fandoms and memes, found itself in rocky controversy last year. Verizon, then called Oath, acquired the site in 2017.

Scandal shook Tumblr in 2018 when child porn slipped through the site’s scanners. It led to Apple removing the app from its app store, and then the site’s service overhaul.

Then later in the year, Tumblr announced that it would ban pornography. Some pockets of their userbase did not take the news well.

Jokes about Pornhub and Tumblr have made rounds on social media since the porn ban.

Moreover, it seems Pornhub were planting the seeds even back then. They tweeted that they welcome any and all Tumblr users with ‘open arms.’

Will the acquisition benefit LGBTI artists?

Gay Star News spoke to Sienna, a queer artist who once revelled in Tumblr’s NSFW art community. But the porn ban halted her, so, she migrated to Twitter instead.

She said: ‘The NSFW community on Twitter is great but it’s not the best platform to share artwork (with all the image dimensions and quality restrictions).

‘I was pretty bummed when it happened but it didn’t hurt me as much as some others, as I didn’t have a large following there.

‘But I know some people were hit really hard as they used Tumblr exclusively and their livelihood was threatened by the ban.’

Sienna also expressed the ‘paranoia’ that creators feel on large platforms, such as Twitter, as a ban for explicit content can come at any moment.

‘But if Pornhub acquired Tumblr that would give us back that feeling of safety, I think.’
