So much for multi-tasking.

Popular porn site YouPorn issued a statement on Thursday revealing that the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch had taken a toll on business. The portable gaming system's March 3 release coincided with a 15 percent drop in YouPorn traffic among site visitors who self-identify as "Gamers," according to the site's findings.

It's not unusual for YouPorn and PornHub to report traffic peaks and valleys around holidays and special events (Super Bowl, Valentine's Day, etc.), but a 15 percent drop is apparently atypically large. Part of the reason, according to YouPorn, is that the Switch doesn't come with a built-in browser, which might otherwise have allowed Gamers to take MILF porn breaks in between rounds of Mario Kart 8, for example.

Gamer traffic was down across the board for YouPorn, but the site did report "millions" had come looking for Nintendo-related porn. The most popular search terms included "Zelda," "Mario," and even "Bowser."
