Masturbation Month of May

May has come, so it’s time to celebrate Masturbation Month with 31 days of self-love. And of course, Pornhub is always here to lend a hand.

Mashable asked the Pornhub Insights team to take a look at what type of masturbation searches are popular, and what visitors are most interested in watching masturbation videos.

Some of the most popular masturbation related searches have to do with public masturbation or being caught by another person. Solo female masturbation ranks higher than solo male masturbation. Other terms have to do with people masturbating together, and ‘jerk off instructions’ which are a form of verbal encouragement.

Women are 24% more likely to search for masturbation videos when compared to men, and the popularity increases by age group. Millennials under the age of 34 are far less likely to search for masturbation, while visitors over 55 are proportionately 50% more likely to search compared to other age groups.

The following chart show the Top 20 masturbation searches by male and female visitors. Many of the top searches are shared by both genders, but we can easily see that most masturbation searches are proportionately much more likely to be searched by women.

‘Solo male masturbation’ is 305% more popular with women, while ‘jerk off instruction’ is 51% more popular with men. Men are more likely than women to search for videos of ‘girls watching guys jerk off’.

Visitors from New Mexico are +27% more likely to search for masturbation videos compared to the U.S. average. They are also more popular in Alaska by +22%, Kansas by +14%, Arizona by +13% and Nevada by +10%.

The states least likely to search for masturbation videos are Wyoming, Idaho, Maine, Kentucky, Nebraska and Vermont.

Tesla Autopilot Drives Searches

Last week a video appeared on Pornhub featuring adult film star Taylor Jackson and her boyfriend having sex while their Tesla Model X was on autopilot. Soon after, this marvel of technology was not only driving itself, it was driving millions of people to search “Tesla” on Pornhub.

On May 9th, Tesla CEO Elon musk responded by tweeting “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined”. “Shoulda seen it coming”. While Elon’s tweets usually just cause stock prices to fluctuate, he also managed to drive up searches on Pornhub.

Projecting results for May 10th (as of 3pm ET), our statisticians recorded over 3 million Tesla related searches since the video was first uploaded.

Star Wars: May the 4th Beat With You

Every year on May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day) we see a big increase in Star Wars related searches on Pornhub so Mashable asked the Insights team to take a closer look. In 2018, searches on the day grew 748% above average. That’s less than May 4th 2017 when they increased by 1048% but higher than the 633% increase in 2016.

The most popular Star Wars related search remains “Princess Leia”, but “Star Wars Rey” (referring to the character first introduced in 2017’s The Last Jedi) continues to gain popularity. Other popular character searches include “Ahsoka Tano” (Clone Wars), the humanoid species “Twilek” and “Padme Amidala” (The Phantom Menace).

Star Wars is often combined with other terms like “hentai”, “cartoon” and “cosplay” so our statisticians thought it would be interesting to see what other types of porn the visitors searching Star Wars commonly look at.

The following list shows the top 25 terms that are most likely to be searched in the same visit session as a Star Wars search.

Topping the list is “parody” and “cosplay” but then we see several other game and movie searches including “Tomb Raider”, “Star Trek”, “Avengers“, “Fortnite“, “Flintstones”, “Dragon Ball Z”, “Halo”, “Overwatch” and “Call Duty”.

Other characters that pique the same visitor’s interest include “Princess Peach”, “Brigitte Overwatch“, “Wonder Woman” and “Harley Quinn“.

The demographics data shows that men are 38% more likely to search for Star Wars videos when compared to women. Our statisticians also found that Apple iOS users are 14% more likely to search compared to their Android counterparts and Windows users are 29% more into Star Wars porn than Apple desktop users.

Visitors aged 18-24 are 77% more likely to search Star Wars when compared to all other age groups, and those aged 25-34 are 11% more interested. Popularity of Star Wars decreases by age group with those over the age of 55 more than 50% less likely to search than younger visitors.

We hope you enjoyed this edition of Pornhub Insights. Be sure to check out our earlier Star Wars posts from 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015.

Avengers Search Popularity

When the last Avengers Infinity War movie was released in 2018, it caused a 356% surge in ‘Avengers’ searches on Pornhub. At the time, that seemed like a sizable increase for an already popular search term. That was then, and Avengers Endgame is now. Men’s Health asked the Insights team to see what effect the new movie has had on searches.

With plenty of spoilers making their way around the internet, ‘Avengers’ searches increased an incredible 2912% on April 19th, when compared to their pre-April 16th average. In real numbers, that’s an additional 2 million searches over 7 days.

In addition to the searches containing ‘Avengers’, Pornhub’s statisticians found that major Marvel characters also peaked in popularity. Topping the list is ‘Captain Marvel’ followed by ‘Black Widow’ and ‘Spider Man’.

It’s not only movies that peak Pornhub users’ interest. New video game releases also have big search results as seen in our recent Trending Game Searches insights.

‘Fleabag’ Leads to Religious Search Increase

Huffington Post asked Pornhub’s statisticians if the March 4th return of the BBC show Fleabag has any effect on Pornhub users. We found that immediately after the Season 2 premiere, searches for ‘religious’ increased by 162%, ‘nun’ by 145% and ‘priest’ by 103%.

Of the three terms, ‘nun’ is by far the most popular with more than half a million monthly searches, about four times that of ‘priest’.

Are You a Cock Hero?

The folks at LADbible asked Pornhub’s statisticians to find an interesting porn genre that we haven’t already taken a detailed look at. Challenge accepted! To be honest, even after 400 posts on our Insights blog, people’s tastes are so varied we’re still spoiled for choice. So today we will be taking a detailed look at… Cock Hero.

Over 1000 “cock hero” videos are presently available on Pornhub, for anyone who’s looking to add an extra challenge to their masturbatory routine. What exactly is a “cock hero” video? They’re similar to the popular Rock Band and Guitar Hero games, but instead of strumming to the beat of the music, you’re stroking to the beat of porn clips as the on-screen action changes rhythm. Typically a pulse meter at the bottom of the video indicates the pace you’re aiming to match. And just like the real video games, if you can keep up the beat and make it all the way to the end of the video, you’re a “cock hero”. Sound fun?

“Cock hero” videos are popular enough that they’re searched an average of 800,000 times each month, with more than 10 million “cock hero” searches in 2018. Some of the top “cock hero” videos have been viewed millions of times. Search popularity peaked in March of 2017 when the most recent Rock Band VR game was released. Searches that month totaled more than 1.2 million.

The most popular search (besides simply “cock hero”) is “cock hero cum challenge”, followed by “cock hero hentai” and “cock hero trans”.

Men are more than twice as likely (+102%) to search for “cock hero” videos when compared to women. As a testament to how many people take the challenge seriously, the top “cock hero” videos are typically watched for twice as long (+94%) when compared to the viewing times of other popular Pornhub videos. Even if people don’t make it to the end, they seem to keep up the beat(ing) for longer.

Visitors from Finland are by far the most likely to search for “cock hero” videos, followed by visitors from Switzerland, Norway, Germany and Sweden. Canada ranks 9th, Australia 13th and the United States 21st.

Trending Game Searches

In the 2018 Year in Review, Pornhub’s statisticians revealed many of the year’s most searched for games and characters including Fortnite, Overwatch, Red Dead Redemption and more.

The first three months of 2019 have seen numerous new game releases, so our friends at Kotaku asked which ones sent gaming fans to Pornhub in search of the hottest new game-play and porn parody videos.

So get you’re joysticks ready, here are the Top 6 trending game searches of Q1 2019.

Apex Legends was featured in a recent Insights post, and even though it’s dropped from it’s February peak, there have been over 2.3 million Apex Legends searches so far this year.

Hot on Apex’s heels is Resident Evil, which saw a peak growth of 223% above average on February 3rd, coinciding with the release of Resident Evil 2. The franchise has been around for many years so even though the new release only caused a 223% increase, there have been more than 2 million searches so far in 2019.

Kingdom Hearts was released on January 29th, and saw a peak searches 927% above average on January 31. Searches have since trailed off, but more than 1 million searches mean it’s made a noticeable impact on fans.

Devil May Cry 5 was released on March 8th and saw a peak of 557% above average on March 12th, while clocking in over 600,000 searches in just a few weeks.

Next up is Metro Exodus, with searches 544% above average on it’s release date of February 22nd. Metro Exodus has since been searched over 240,000 times.

Finally we have Anthem, which was also released on February 22nd. Although ‘anthem’ is a general term that may appear in a variety of video tags and titles, the release of the game was certainly responsible for an increase of 242% above average on February 24th.

While none of these games have come close to overthrowing the reigning search champs Fortnite and Overwatch, we look forward to seeing what other 2019 releases will cause more search increases on Pornhub.

Mel B & Geri Halliwell

Ahead of the Spice Girls’ upcoming reunion tour, the group’s own Scary Spice, Melanie Brown (a.k.a. Mel B) revealed in an interview that she had slept with bandmate Geri Halliwell (aka Ginger Spice) during the group’s heyday back in the 1990s.

If you’ve been following the Pornhub Insights blog, you already know that Lesbian is the most viewed category of video, so we weren’t surprised when searches for Mel B, Geri Halliwell and even ‘Spice Girls’ all saw massive increases over the last 48 hours.

While Geri Halliwell had the biggest search increase of 2187%, it’s actually Mel B who had the most searches. On an average day, Mel B has four times the volume of Geri’s searches, so an 802% increase is quite significant.

No word yet if a sex tape of their encounter exists, or if it would be available on VHS or LaserDisc.

Saint Patrick’s Day – Getting Lucky

Whether you’re feeling lucky or not, St Patrick’s Day is always a fun time and that fun carries over to Pornhub.

Searches containing “leprechaun” increase by 1238% on March 17th, “shamrock” by 811% and “Irish anal” by 412%. Other Irish related terms that grew on St. Patrick’s Day include “Irish cougar”, “Irish Amateur”, “Irish lesbians” and “Irish creampie”.

The following chart illustrates the huge increase in searches containing “Irish” that occurs every Saint Patrick’s Day. On March 17th, they were 429% higher than on an average day.

Even if you’re not getting lucky, you can always find a bit of luck on Pornhub. Searches containing “Lucky” increase by 171% compared to an average day.

On March 17th, Pornhub’s statisticians found that while overall traffic didn’t change, the average time spent per visit increased by around 5%, indicating that people may be taking (or needing) a bit more time to get the job done. The duration increase is 7% longer for women and 4.5% for men.

Why the increase? It may be due to inebriated fingers taking a few extra attempts to find the videos they’re tasked with searching. Just as we found on previous years, misspelled searches increase on Saint Patrick’s day. Variations of “hentai” increase by 18% including a 31% increase for “hentia”. Searches for “lebsian” increased by 19% and “massagw” by 14%.

Thankfully our auto-correct feature is there to guide Saint Patrick’s Day visitors in the right direction — much like a timely Uber (but minus the 500% surge pricing). We hope you enjoyed this edition of Pornhub Insights, and best of luck to ye!
