Fucking, Austria, is Now a Pornhub “Premium Place”

Fucking, the tiny village in Upper Austria is one of 50 unfortunately named places to receive premium access to Pornhub, the popular pornography website.

Named after a sixth century Bavarian noble called Focko or Fuko, the people of Fucking are used to mockery. Viral videos have brought selfie-taking British tourists, traffic sign-stealing teens and even a beer brand named Fucking Hell, which cashes in on people’s love of juvenile puns (and helles beer).

Now, Fucking has unwillingly joined a long list of places notable for their sexually suggestive names, ranging from Analandia, Brazil to Weener in Germany. While these are some of the more innocent-sounding places designated as “Premium Places”, it is explicit-sounding places like Fucking which are sure to receive the most attention from the website’s publicity stunt.

NEED TO KNOW:

In old Germanic, “Fucking” means the “place of Fokko’s people.”
