Pornhub launch a sex education site

Pornhub have launched a sex education site to educate users about love and relationships.
On the porn and young men thread someone said pornhub was not an ethical outlet and hosted illegal material as if everyone knew that, but the media seem largely positive about it being a source of sex education.
I cynically think the whole thing is an exercise to drive more traffic to pornhub.
What do you all think?

It's just like "Drink aware" and "When the fun stops, stop". It's horrible exploitative industries trying to pre-empt government intervention by showing that they really do care about all the damage they are making money from.... That kind of implies that governments aren't complicit in this utter bollocks when, of course, they are. I just can't be arsed rewording it.

It's just Pornhub trying to shine up their brand and make themselves look like a good, caring company, so that they get publicity, are recommended more, and chosen more. It's just a business move that won't actually achieve anything positive, and will probably be negative by making at least one part of their site seem almost "family-friendly" for teens.

I've been and looked at the "sex-ed" site, and it has multiple problems. It can't seem to decide whether it's a basic sex-ed site, (with safety, how-to's, and attention to sexual pleasure for both partners etc,) or a site with stupid tips and tricks for adults, as well as a few random basics.

It has "how is babby made" (basic reproduction,) alongside "what do people do at play parties." That blood - not the mentioned cramps, bloating etc - is what makes period sex off-putting (while advertising a disc thing to 'block the flow' hmm )
That if one does not wish to engage in vaginal sex because of pregnancy risk, that it's recommended one can engage in "outercourse," which includes anal sex, apparently! I thought anal was in not out?? confused
(It's also clearly aimed at men as this quote from 'outercourse shows: The obvious benefit is that outercourse prevents pregnancy without preventing fun (as long as you don’t ejaculate close to the vaginal opening). )

Ultimately, it's a whole load of bollocks, and won't do a single positive thing.
