Overwatch Porn Tops the Charts During PornHub’s 2017 Year in Review by DG Goldstein

While porn is often seen as the domain of lecherous men, one of Pornhub's biggest search terms in 2017 was "Porn for Women", which saw a 1400% increase.

In their year in review, Pornhub says they catered to 28.5 billion visitors - about 81 million per day - while women made up about 26% of the site's visitors. This figure roughly translates to around 50,000 searches per minute and 800 searches per second. For instance, there was a 8 per cent drop in traffic during the Strictly finale traffic, while the Great British Bake Off finale saw a drop of 3 per cent, as people tuned in to watch a different type of cream bun.

"2017 seems to have been the year where women have come forward to express their desires more openly", said Dr. Laurie Betito, sex therapist and director of the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center. And that's right, you got it, people searched for those following the word "porn".

"Hentai" (Japanese cartoon porn) was most viewed through nearly all of Asia.

The website also revealed that they saw an increase in searches for Hentai and fans of cheerleaders also caused a massive boost in these searches too.

Hentai paved its way to the second position, making a six-term leap to the spot after having gradually climbed the ladder each year. Pornhub also manages to record a ton of statistics (warning, this links out to Pornhub, but there's nothing explicit on the page), and there's a not-very-surprising amount of crossover with gamers.

The results reveal a pretty notable difference between what men and women porn consumers were searching for. Really? Rick and Morty is kinda understandable, but I'm not sure how fidget spinner-themed porn works. Brb. The views for these categories have lasted the longest.

Perhaps in a blow to masculine pride, both in the Philippines and globally, women are most likely to search for lesbian pornography.

Sunny Leone once again found a place in the list of top five most searched porn stars.

Numerous most popular pornographic websites (Pornhub, RedTube, YouPorn) and production studios (Brazzers, Digital Playground) are owned by Luxembourg-based firm MindGeek. The top-searched character on Pornhub in 2017 was Overwatch's D.Va.
