Titles on Netflix that often veer into, shall we say, the horny arena, are often some of the best performers on Netflix (see Sex/Life and 365 days). Therefore, one documentary that we suspect may attract a lot of attention in the coming days is the new documentary on the the fourth largest website on the webbragging more traffic than Netflix itself!
According to Netflix, here’s what you can expect going into this documentary:
«With interviews with artists, activists and former employees, this documentary offers a deep dive into the successes and scandals of Pornhub.»
Finally, we want to highlight the soft launch (again got 0 Netflix promotions) of Highwater on the Netflix mobile gaming service, bringing the total number of games available with your Netflix subscription to over 53!
Here is a brief summary of the game:
“In the midst of a major weather catastrophe, the flooded region of Hightower has become a kind of safe zone between the two dry regions: the almost completely devastated land of the War Zone and the fortified city of Alphaville, where the obscenely rich live behind of giant walls. . Rumors abound that the rich are fleeing to Mars. He travels a submerged world by boat as a humble survivor: picking up friends, fighting insurgents, and stealing food, all while fighting to find out if the rumors are true. Can you make it to the rocket ship in this atmospheric, story-driven adventure?
