What Porn Did People Watch Most In 2016?

The statistics on the world’s porn watching habits are in, and to no one’s surprise, people watched billions of pornos last year. That’s 92 billion videos to be exact, according to Pornhub’s big, pulsating study.

And what what countries watched the most porn on pornhub itself? USA was first, followed by Iceland 2nd, the U.K. 3rd and Canada 4th. New Zealand was 5th, Ireland 6th, and the horndogs in Scandinavia came in 7th (Norway) and 9th (Sweden.)

If an alien landed on earth and surveyed our porn viewing habits, he would first go to “Pornhub’s most popular search terms from 2016.” To prove that men are the ones who watch porn the most, “for the second year in a row”  ‘lesbian’ was the number one search term worldwide. Apparently, men have more mommy issues than previously thought with ‘Step Mom’ second (up 1 spot from last year) followed by ‘MILF’ up 2 places from 2015. ‘Lesbian scissoring’ jumped a couple dozen positions to make the top 20 this year. Girlfriends Films told us that while they make lesbian porn for a lesbian audience, “straight males” are their biggest audience.

“An all-new term that shot into our top search terms lists” says Pornhub is ‘Overwatch’, in reference to the video game released earlier in 2016. The same guys who watch video games watch porn and those same guys don’t get out much. Which brings us to “When exactly do people watch porn?”

10 pm-1 am are the biggest porn viewing hours, but more interesting are the statistics showing that people watch it a lot from 3-5pm in the afternoon. (This explains why so many businesses put you on on hold for so long during that time.)

One of the more interesting questions asked was “Who is your favorite porn star?” In practically every country surveyed, Kim Kardashian, a reluctant/non-professional porn star, came in number one. (Her leaked sex tape is one of the most popular porn vids of all time.) Coming in second and third in almost every country was Mia Khalifa and Sarah Palin impersonator and MILF Lisa Ann.

Other random findings included the fact that  “BBL” (“Big Beautiful Latina”) was searched more this year than last, especially in America, and that the younger you are, the more porn you watch. People 18-24 watched the most porn, followed by those 25-30.

The study even found local cultural differences, including the findings that New Zealanders like “Samoan porn”, Indians like “Aunty porn”, Chileans like “Pokemon porn”, Maltese like “giantess porn”, and  Finns like “Sauna porn.”
