Pornhub has released its Year in Review for 2018 and while we won’t be sharing any of the top videos from the site (sorry,) we will share some interesting and bizarre info from the platform.

The first thing to note is that in 2018, 4 403 petabytes of data were transferred within the service.

In a minute on Pornhub, 63 992 new visitors arrive, 207 405 videos are watched and 57 570 searches are conducted.

The country that spends the most time on the site is the Philippines with an average of 13 minutes and 50 seconds. South Africa is second on that list with an average time of 10 minutes 57 seconds spent on the site. Below us is the United States which spends an average of 10 minutes 37 seconds on the site.

South Africa is still one of the top 20 biggest markets for Pornhub and as such the company dives a bit deeper into what South Africans were searching for this year.

The top search for 2018 was the same as 2017 namely “black south african”. The term “ebony” climbed three spots to place second and the search term “black” remained the third most popular category.

In terms of top trending searches, searches for “afrikaans” increased 1 391 percent while “white south african” climbed 773 percent. Searches for Cape Town increased 172 percent, but we honestly could not tell you why.

Then things get, strange

As one might suspect there are some truly bizarre searches that were conducted throughout 2018. Being the geeks we are our eyes were immediately drawn to the movie, TV and game characters that folks searched for.

At the top of the list is Harley Quinn with 10 million searches in 2018. In second place is Elastigirl from The Incredibles and the same film takes third position with 7 million searches.

Curiously, despite its popularity in mainstream media there were no searches for characters from Black Panther.

Looking at video game characters, can you guess which fictional character was the most searched in 2018?

Bowsette.

Yes, the combination of Peach and Bowser was the most searched for game character on Pornhub followed by Brigitte from Overwatch and then Lara Croft with 4 million searches.

In terms of general searches Stormy Daniels was the most searched person on Pornhub in 2018.

In second position is Fortnite followed by 4K, romantic and trans.

“Interest in ‘trans’ (aka transgender) porn saw significant gains in 2018, in particular with a 167% increase in searches by men and more than 200% with visitors over the age of 45 (becoming the fifth most searched terms by those aged 45 to 64),” Pornhub said.

Finally, in terms of what people are watching Pornhub videos on, the winner is their smartphone by a country mile.

Mobile traffic to Pornhub grew 8 percent in 2018 to account for 71.6 percent of traffic. Desktop traffic has actually decreased 18 percent and only accounts for 19.7 percent of traffic. Tablets are by far the least popular way to watch flicks with only 8.7 percent of traffic coming from slates.

We’ll be thinking twice about asking somebody to use their phone from now on.

There is a lot of data to sort through in Pornhub’s Year in Review and if you’re a fan of getting insights into what folks do behind closed doors we recommend checking out the data in full over here.
