South Africa comes 20th in Pornhub’s top countries for 2016


Pornhub has released it’s insights for 2016 and South Africa has climbed four places, landing in the top 20 countries that frequent the service.

This is the first time South Africa has cracked the top 20 list (aren’t you bursting with national pride?) and Pornhub has revealed some interesting statistics local tastes.

Before we dive into the stats please be advised that the content within this story may offend sensitive readers.

Still here? The top three categories viewed by South Africans in 2016 where Ebony, Teen and Lesbian. The search term “black south african” takes the top spot moving up two places thanks to a 279% increase in searches of the term.

As for who South African’s like to watch, we’re quite different to the rest of the world. Kim Kardashian, Mia Khalifa and Lisa Ann were among the most popular starlets on Pornhub for South Africans. In the rest of the world that list is flipped on it’s head with Ann taking the top spot and Kardashian taking third place.

Of course porn is not just about the ladies, and the top three male stars viewed on the site are Mandingo, James Deen and Rocco Siffredi.

The countries that visit Pornhub the most

The statistics also reveal the average age of South African viewers with 41% of the local viewership being between the ages of 18 and 24 and 29% being at ages 35 to 34.

South Africa is also the number one country to visit the website on mobile devices. Pornhub saw 73% of traffic to the website coming from a smartphone, 16% from a desktop and only 11% of traffic was from a tablet. Handheld is the way to go it seems (oh, my aching sides -ed.).

Watch time

Despite the high cost of data South Africans spend a lot of time on Pornhub, more than the United States in fact. On average locals spend 10 minutes 46 seconds on Pornhub, more than a minute over the global average of 9 minutes 36 seconds. Overall, the average time spent on the website increased by 16 seconds.

Another interesting tidbit concerns the time of day when folks are watching porn. Pornhub’s stats reveal that the site doesn’t fare to well between 3am and 9am, presumably because people are asleep and then getting ready for their day. This means most of us don’t crack open pornhub as we sit down at the breakfast table.

What is interesting however is that from around 10am traffic to the website picks up before peaking at midnight.

It seems like everyday is a good day to visit Pornhub.

There also appears to be no preferred day to visit Pornhub though Fridays and Saturdays see folks visit the site later and leave later possibly due to being able to lie in on a Saturday.

Virtual sexuality

With 2016 being pegged as virtual reality’s big year it’s no surprise that Pornhub saw a massive increase in the amount of searches for VR porn. Pornhub increased it’s VR compatible videos from 30 at launch to 1 800 videos by the end of the year.

The most popular search terms for the category include VR, 360 VR and 360 Degree in order of popularity. Interestingly the search for VR porn was lead by those in the 25 – 34 age group who are 47% more likely to strap a pair of goggles to their face.

We’ve just touched on some of the statistics presented by Pornhub and if you want to learn more you can check out its year in review, though we suggest you read that in your own time, when you aren’t in the office.
