A porn site pays anonymous visitors a generous sum to help get the job done. 

Pornhub is partnering with HackerOne, a platform designed to connect freelance hackers with corporations and websites looking to improve their cybersecurity, as part of an effort to provide the most optimal online porn experience for its users, free of any viruses, bugs or complications that would require both hands to resolve. 

What's more, the popular porn site will provide a maximum bounty of $25,000 to hackers able to expose any of the site's major issues, with $50 as a minimum reward for any detected problems.

"If you believe you've found a security bug in the services listed in our scope, we will be happy to work with you to resolve the issue promptly and ensure you are fairly rewarded for your discovery," Pornhub wrote in its announcement. 

A look at the site's ongoing relationship with HackerOne proves the porn site is putting its money where its mouth is — Pornhub has been rewarding online hackers for their services with HackerOne for nearly a year, though it's unclear how hefty those bounties were. 

There are a few rules for those attempting to watch porn while hacking: Pornhub notes there is absolutely no leaking user data, no automated tools and no interrupting any user's online experience.
