Women watched more porn in 2017 — Surprise

Share

Two of the most popular adult websites: Pornhub and xHamster released their year-in-review reports for 2017 which listed women as the highest porn consumers of the past year.

"2017 seems to have been the year where women have come forward to express their desires more openly" notes Dr. Laurie Betito, sex therapist and director of the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center.

Data from the report was gathered from around 28.5 billion site visits in 2017, with the site averaging 81 million daily average visits worldwide.

It has been reported that users and content partners uploaded over four million videos, and users submitted over 120 million votes on videos.

The data, which the Press Association has obtained through the freedom of information (FoI) act, also indicates a sharp increase in attempts to watch porn in September 2017, the month when the parliament's filtering system blocked some 9,467 attempted entries to the porn websites.

The Year in Review, which you can view here (while it discusses categories of porn, the page itself isn't explicit at all), is full of gems like that, and then some, all illustrated with lovely infographics. Overwatch ranked 13th in Pornhub's most searched for terms in 2017-two slots lower than it was previous year.

More on the company's figures, the app-based sales were up by a massive 50% on a year over year from the last Cyber Monday sales. The perk for Amazon is that Prime subscribers spend more and buy more frequently than non-Prime members.

The cuckold trend on xHamster grew by 23 percent, while on PornHub, cuckold video views went up by 72 percent. "We're excited to see how things like AI and smart speakers are tied into pop culture, and in turn into searches on our site", says Price. Xbox's share of console traffic dropped by 6% since 2016, while Playstation gained once again to now represent 56% of gamers watching porn. The affordable smartphone data packages and equally responsible for the rise in traffic on porn sites.

Interesting stats, that's for sure.

South Korea, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and India had the biggest growth in porn users by country. That makes us pretty much one of the horniest countries per capita.

Pornhub has also revealed that the average time spent on the site has increased by 16 seconds to nine minutes 36 seconds - with the Philippines maintaining the top porn-obsession spot. And we still love lesbian porn, while massage porn has apparently fallen out of favour.
