Not That You’ve Ever Visited The Site, But PornHub Just Dropped Its 2019 Year in Review

The end of the year draws nigh, and with it, a whole slew of “year in review” posts by sites reflecting back on 2019’s content.

And while many of these may be a dull rehash of the content we’ve already seen or stats we don’t care about, at least one set of trends catches our eye every year — Pornhub’s year in review.

You can guess the gist of it. More people are watching porn! As a society, we’re getting more comfortable with porn rather than treating it as totally taboo.

Either that or people are just getting a lot hornier. Either way, the leading porn site had over 42 billion views during the course of 2019, which is up over 8 billion views from last year.

The United States still brings in the most views to Pornhub, and an average American’s time on the site clocks in at 10 minutes and 36 seconds (Thailand lasts the longest, boasting 11 minutes and 21 seconds).

39 billion searches were performed, 6.83 million new videos were uploaded, and 98,000 new performers (“models”) joined the site.

Alright, now let’s get to the fun stuff.

Pornhub released a list of the “searches that defined 2019.”

This seems to be made up of search terms that aren’t necessarily the most sought out overall (those are the more predictable terms like “hentai” and “lesbian” and “stepmom”), but are popular searches specific to 2019. The most interesting terms gracing this list are Alien (#2), ASMR (#9), and Apex Legends (#8).

Amateurs and pros both made a splash this year.

Lana Rhoades, Mia Khalifa, and Riley Reid topped the list of female pornstars sought out by visitors to the site, while Jordi El Nino Poll, Alex Adams, and Owen Gray were the most searched for male stars. James Deen trailed behind them at #5, despite those pesky sexual assault allegations.

But amateur models are still raking in the views. The top two amateur performers, Little Reislin and Solazola, both racked up over 200 million views over the course of the year.

Pornhub Gay pages got their own analysis.

“Camp buddy” was a trending term among gay men, and searches for “transgender,” “femboy,” and “furry” skyrocketed this year. But the #1 viewed category among gay men is still “Straight Guys.”

Though interestingly enough, Pornhub reports that 37% of gay male porn is being watched by women. Which should surprise absolutely no one who has ever gone near the Supernatural or One Direction fandoms.

As for women, their viewership increased to 32% of the site’s overall traffic this year.

Four of the male pornstars searched more often by women than men exclusively do gay porn, and all but three of women’s top 12 searched pornstars altogether are ladies.
