Ever wondered whether other people spend as much time as you watching porn on their smartphones, when they probably should be working?
The short answer is yes, they do!
A report published a while back by Business Insider found that of the 14.7 billion visits made to Pornhub in a single year, 52% was viewed via a smartphone. A further 10% was watched using a tablet PC of some kind, with laptops and desktops making up the remaining 38%.
Confirmation (as if it was needed) that mobile porn is the most popular form of porn in the world right now.
According to the folks at ePlay, the virtual porn market is also heading in the same direction. More people than ever before are accessing adult web cams using mobile devices, spurred primarily by technological advancements in mobile technology.
But aside from the way the world accesses adult web cams, a separate report published by The Cut brought to light some genuinely eye-opening findings. Some of which are admittedly more surprising than others, but in all instances help paint an insightful picture of what we’re getting up to behind closed doors regarding adult web cams and the adult industry in general.
Fast Facts, Figures and Findings
Extracting some of the most interesting elements from the report, it was found that women spend an average of 1.14 minutes longer on porn sites with each visit than men. Most men would probably admit that quick-fixes are their priority when watching porn online, so this comes as little surprise.
Likewise, the revelation that most online porn worldwide is at around midnight, followed by 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. After these times, the most popular hours of the day to watch porn were revealed as 3 p.m., 4 p.m., and 5 p.m. Each of which suggests that quite a lot of people are getting busy with themselves right after work.
In terms of age groups, the study found that the majority of visitors are aged between 18 and 24 (31%), followed by the 25 to 34 bracket (24%) and visitors aged 35 to 44 (11%). Just 4% of visitors to Pornhub fell within the 65+ age bracket.
India was found to have the most prolific audience of young users worldwide – 48% of hits coming from people under the age of 25.
Shifting Trends and Fetishes
Along with the figures above pertaining to usage statistics, research has also highlighted how the world’s porn preferences continuously shift and evolve over time. Simply by checking search volumes for specific types of porn from one year to the next, it’s easy to see what people were (and are) into.
A few further findings from the report published by The Cut:
2007 – Year of MILF
It’s worth noting that this was the year the most renowned porn site came into existence, at which time the single biggest search term by a significant margin was MILF. After which, searches for Asian porn came in second, which would then stick around firmly within the top 10 for several consecutive years.
2009 – Year of Amateurs
Undoubtedly spurred by the introduction of its DIY porn ‘Community’ initiative, amateur porn was the porn of the moment in 2009, it is important to note that this led to streaming or to what we know today as adult web cams and cam girls. This was a year where cosmetically enhanced porn stars comprised of 80% synthetic body parts suddenly took a back seat to imperfect amateurs. The whole thing would go on to effectively spark an online porn revolution, with amateur porn having remained one of the world’s favorite categories to this day.
2012 – Year of Cartoons
Questionable in terms of taste, quality and legitimacy, but nonetheless an exceptionally popular form of porn. Incredibly, cartoon porn was the single most searched-for category throughout 2012 as a whole. From crudely drawn animations of a completely random nature right through to parodies of everything from The Simpsons to Family Guy, everything was suddenly getting the cartoon treatment.
2013 – Year of the Creampie
Self-explanatory – no further details needed!. But if still in doubt experience it yourself in your favorite adult web cam.
2015 – Year of Step-Sex
Equally questionable in terms of ethics and morality, the term ‘Stepmom’ nonetheless came out as the single top search term in 2015. And just in case you wondered, the answer is yes – it’s still within the top 10 search terms today and is clearly a major kink for porn audiences worldwide.
2017 – Year of Hentai
The last major shift noted in porn viewing trends came about in 2017, when the entire world suddenly developed an obsession with Hentai. Often extreme in nature and almost always bizarre as hell, Hentai porn would go on to become the fourth most popular search term of all time among audiences.
