A cooler blend of culture

Porn This Way…

article-2x

Whether we like to admit it or not, we humans watch a lot of porn. In fact, judging by the statistics unveiled this week by popular porn site Pornhub on a global level we watched enough porn last year that would fit on 194 million USB sticks which – end to end – would wrap around the entire circumference of the moon.

The total amount of bandwidth used in watching porn last year added up to 3,110 petabytes (or 3,110,400,000 gigabytes) while the total number of videos viewed on the Pornhub site alone was 91,980,225,000 (I’ll spell that out for you: over ninety billion).

On average that equals 12.5 videos viewed for every person on earth (assuming they have broadband in Outer Greater Mongolia). Of course some people would say they’re petrified to view porn, and others would gladly watch more than twelve-and-a-half clips a day (or at least snippets of them until they’ve gotten bored and moved onto the next one).

In sum, Pornhub reveals it receives around 64 million visitors per day, or 44 thousand every minute. Collectively, that’s 4.6 billion hours of porn-watching stuffed into one year – and that’s coming from the one site. The average time spent on-site per visit is 9 minutes and 36 seconds – up 16 seconds from 2015. And, remember, Google analytics doesn’t lie…

The most popular search terms on the Pornhub site were ‘lesbian’ at number one, ‘step mom’ at number two, followed by ‘MILF’ up two places from last year. Also in the top 20 popular search terms are ‘teen’, ‘massage’, ‘black’, ‘threesome’ and – curiously enough – ‘cartoon’. Kinkier terms like ‘creampie’ and ‘squirt’ also feature.

It appears porn selection has gotten more specific, or ‘niche’ if you will, with studies showing that generic ‘in-out, in-out’ style of sex is now considered pretty boring while searching for exact scenarios is becoming more the norm (go on then, type ‘MILF teaches teen how to massage’ into Google and see what comes up).

Basically, any situation, anywhere around the world, in any language, with any given paradigm of props / backdrops / scripts (or ad libs in the case of amateur video) / accents / costumes – you name it – is up for grabs in the grubby world of online dirty videos.

So far as national trending is concerned, the USA topped both the ‘most traffic’ and the ‘countries with the most per capita page views’ lists, while the UK also made top three for both. Iceland, interestingly enough, came in at number two on the per capita page views list. And Australia sits at number eight on both lists, making us part of the world’s overall top 10 porn viewers.

A general look at the other nations that make each list – from the Netherlands to New Zealand, Mexico to Japan, Russia to South Africa – and one thing becomes pretty clear. When it comes to sex, the human race is a fairly horny lot, no matter what continent we might be spanking that monkey.  Antonino Tati
