Disturbing Valentine’s Day porn stat



IF YOU are single this Valentine’s Day and jumping on Tinder seems like too much effort, you could always just pay a visit to PornHub.

While it might sound slightly crude, the adult website said on Valentine’s Day last year, the website had a traffic increase of 308 per cent.

In order to make those lonely singles feel a little less depressed about being unaccompanied on the romantic holiday, PornHub is giving users access the ‘premium’ material’ on the site, which usually costs money to view.

The special access will be limited only to Valentine’s Day so those wanting to see what can be found beyond the paywall need to act fast.

According to the adult website’s analysis, the country responsible for biggest boost in traffic last Valentine’s Day was Chile with a 7288 per cent increase. This followed by Mexico, Peru, Columbia, and Ecuador.

If you were wondering what people like to view on this romantic day, heartwarming terms like ‘valentine’, ‘cupid’, ‘love’ and ‘massage’ all rated highly.

Surprisingly ‘quickie’, ‘babysitter’, ‘kinky’ and ‘cuckold’ also made an appearance.

The last PornHub traffic increase came from Hawaii after the ballistic missile threat was declared false in January this year.

PornHub said traffic increased in Hawaii by almost 50 per cent more than what is seen on a regular Saturday.

“Based on real-time, per-minute page views, and compared to levels on the previous two Saturdays, our statisticians found a precipitous drop in traffic at 8:07am immediately after the warning was sent out,” it explained.

“By 8.23am, traffic was a massive -77 per cent below that of a typical Saturday. As residents were notified around 8.45 that the initial warning was sent in error, traffic began to return to normal and Hawaiians collectively breathed a sigh of relief.

“Those seeking further relief, headed back to PornHub where page views surged +48 per cent above typical levels at 9.01am.”

Last year, more people voted on PornHub videos than in the United States Presidential election — perhaps not that surprising being as the website attracted 28.5 billion visits overall, or 81 million per day.

The top trending porn searches of 2017 were Porn for Women (an increase of more than 1400 per cent), Rick And Morty, Fidget Spinners, 1080p, ASMR, Hentai and Cheerleader.



The Cuckold category had the biggest increase in views, up 72 per cent from 2016.

A whopping 3732 petabytes of data was streamed, which is enough to fill every last iPhone on earth — that’s a lot of porn!

Australia turned out to be one of the randiest nations per capita, coming in as the eighth-biggest porn consumer. The United States, United Kingdom, India, Japan, Canada, France and Germany led the charge.

The Outdoor category was 24 per cent more popular in Australia than in other nations, while the top five most viewed categories as a whole were Lesbian, MILF, Ebony, Hentai and Japanese.

Most viewers — 67 per cent, in fact — used their smartphones to watch porn in 2017, while just 11 per cent used internet Explorer.
