I always love it when certain tech companies release their user data for the general public’s education/amusement. Last week, we learned about OkCupid stats. This week, it’s Pornhub.
Pornhub is pretty good about releasing user insights (see their recent post on activity during winter storm Jonas), and their year-end data, released last month, is no exception. The following numbers are just what I found most interesting, and you can read the full report on Pornhub’s Insights blog (NSFW, BTW).
Amount of bandwidth used: 1,892 petabytes (PBs)
- Context: 1 PB = 1,000 terabytes (TB) = 1,000,000 gigabytes (GB), i.e. that’s a hell of a lot of data
Average visit duration (U.S. only): 9 minutes, 51 seconds
Most popular search term worldwide: lesbian
Top pornstar: Kim Kardashian
Top term searched more in 2015 than in 2014: giantess (+1,091%)

Country with highest proportion of female users: Japan (17%)
Average age of Pornhub users: 35.3 years

This is all so fascinating to me, and I hope you feel the same!
