Pornographic movies are watched all across the world. Even despite strict anti-porn laws in some states, their citizens often access online adult collections through VPN. One of the largest such collections is PornHub, which in 2018 received 92 million unique visitors every day. This is more than the populations of Australia, Canada and Poland combined, and it amounts to 33.5 Billion hits over the course of the year. Here is where the most active users reside, based on the site’s Annual Report.
Sex is the most profitable business in the world. Overall, the porn industry is estimated to be worth $97 billion. Today, around half of all internet content is porn-related. Porn constitutes over a third of all downloads, and over 28,000 people are viewing porn at every given second.
Pornhub’s top five
According to the published statistics, Americans are still the most active porn consumers. This is hardly surprising, given the fact that the USA has traditionally been in the USA, and 2.5 billion porn-related emails are exchanged every single day. Approximately 40 million Americans watch online porn regularly. Here are the other four leaders:
- The USA;
- The United Kingdom;
The third place has come as a real surprise, as the Indian government has been taking severe measures to prevent citizens from accessing porn.
The most-watched categories
In 2018, most users watched lesbian, hentai and milf porn, which is a trend consistent for the past few years. Female porn fans preferred girl-on-girl scenes, while hentai was mostly enjoyed by males. Around a third of women using porn sites do so at least once a week, according to a survey by the Marie Claire magazine.
Interestingly, according to the PornHub statistics, the notorious Kim Kardashian’s video is still on top, getting 55 views per minute, despite it being 15 years old. The most popular star for the year was Stormy Daniel, followed by Mia Khalifa and Riley Reid.
Google search top 10
Americans may be watching the most content on porn websites, but Muslims lead the way when it comes to Google searches. That same year, a study conducted by PornMD analyzed Google search queries from various countries. As it turned out, over half of the top 10 porn consumers are Muslim states:
- Saudi Arabia;
So, what does it all mean? There are conflicting opinions on the effect of porn on family life and marriages. Porn consumption may indicate dissatisfaction with one’s actual partner, causing unrealistic expectations and further damaging the relationship.
On the other hand, some couple watches porn together to spice up their sex life, which could lead to opposite effects. What is clear, however, is that the world is still obsessed with porn, and the industry shows no signs of slowing down.
