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.

We hope you enjoyed this edition of Pornhub Insights. If there are other interesting porn genre’s you would like to learn more about, let us know in the comments below!

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!

Facebook & Instagram Outage

On March 13th, 2019 popular social media sites Facebook and Instagram experienced their biggest service outage ever. Beginning around 12pm Eastern Time, many users were unable to access the sites for up to 10 hours. The folks at CNET checked in to see if this outage had any effect on Pornhub’s traffic.

Much like we found during the YouTube outage in October, many users keep their fingers busy by heading to Pornhub while waiting for the SFW sites to come back online.

Immediately after the outage began, Pornhub’s traffic surged by up to 11% at 1pm. The increase in early evening traffic was even more dramatic, reaching as much as 19% above average at 7pm, already one of Pornhub highest viewing periods.

The increase in visits also caused a shift in the type of videos people were searching on March 13th. Perhaps unsurprisingly, searches for “Instagram” were up 323% and “Facebook” 221%. The next largest increase was “tentacle porn” by 308%, “wwe” by 274% and “game” by 236%. Other game related searches included a 97% increase for “Fortnite” and 133% for “Overwatch”.

Searches for “celebrity” were up 72% on March 13th, and many celebrities with strong following on Instagram and Facebook also saw large search increases. Compared to an average day, “Emrata” was searched 37% more often, “Ariana Grande” 32% more and “Shay Mitchell” by 29%.

“Kendall Jenner” searches increased by 25% followed closely by “Kylie Jenner” at 24%. The only male celebrity with a significant search increase was “Christiano Ronaldo” by 9%.

Big Beautiful Women

Pornhub Insights last took a detailed look at BBW searches (aka Big Beautiful Women) way back in 2015. In the meantime, BBW searches have continued to appear in numerous Insights posts like our annual Year in Review and niche topics like Feeder Fetish. MEL Magazine asked us to take a more detailed look at what keeps big women hugely popular on Pornhub.

BBW related searches have changed since 2015 with ‘ebony bbw’ now taking the top spot and ‘milf bbw’ also seeing a big increase.

Men are 21% more likely to search for BBW when compared to women. Visitors aged 18 to 24 are -34% less likely to search BBW when compared to all other age groups, with visitors over 65 being equally uninterested in BBW.

Visitors between the ages of 35 to 44 are most interested in BBW, with popularity being 25% greater when compared to all other age groups.

Worldwide, it’s still countries from the African continent that proportionately search the most for BBW videos. Nigeria takes the top spot followed by Ghana, Kenya and Egypt. The United States comes in at 10th for popularity, the United Kingdom at 12th and Canada 20th.

In 2015 it was the state of Georgia that was most likely to search for BBW, but today it’s West Virginia that’s 24% more likely to search BBW compared to the national average. Generally, it’s the Southern States like Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina that are most interested in BBW.

BBW searches are the least popular in Hawaii, Utah, California and Colorado.

Worldwide, the popularity of BBW searches (as a proportion of all searches) decreased slightly over the last 2 years. That’s not to say that Big Beautiful Women aren’t as popular as ever, but as Pornhub’s traffic has grown in certain parts of the world, other genres make up a larger portion of total searches (for example, Hentai’s popularity in Japan).

If we compare the popularity of BBW searches worldwide to those of the United States, we can see that American’s desire for Big Beautiful Women has remained relatively consistent from 2015 to 2019.

The pornstar and model names most often combined with BBW searches are as follows.

  1. tiffany star
  2. sofia rose
  3. chole bigcutie
  4. ms marshae
  5. crystal blue
  6. lisa sparxxx
  7. thunda859
  8. mazzeratie monica
  9. anastasia vanderbust
  10. nikki nailz
  11. kelly divine

Women of the World

International Women’s Day is March 8th, so our friends at Mashable asked us to take a closer look at what’s Pornhub’s female visitors like to watch. Women’s Day is about bringing women together, but this year the Insights team has decided to showcase how female porn viewership differs all around the world.

If you’ve read our 2018 Year in Review, you may already know that Lesbian is by far the most popular category of videos viewed by women, and in fact it’s 151% more popular with women when compared to men.

In some parts of the world, women favor a different category for their number one choice including Hentai, Ebony, Anal, Indian, Japanese, Mature and MILF. The following map illustrates how these popular categories tend to be focused in certain regions.

We can also see how female favorites vary by country when we look at the top relative categories — those being the ones that are proportionately more likely to be viewed by women when compared to other women around the world.

In the United States, women are 102% more likely to view Ebony videos and 69% more into Interracial. As you might expect, women in the United Kingdom are 474% more likely to view the British category, but they’re also 31% more into Rough Sex. Women in Canada are 36% more into Threesomes, French women are 103% more into Cuckold videos and Germany women are 165% more into Feet.

Women in Mexico are 95% more likely to view Striptease videos, in Brazil they’re 71% more into Transgender, in Spain they watch Handjobs 91% more and in the Ukraine they’re 277% more into Fisting.

Across most of the United States, Lesbian is the most viewed category, but in the Southern states women prefer Ebony videos. In parts of the West, Midwest and Northeast, Threesome videos are the most watched by women.

The differences become more clear when we compare the relative categories that women in each state are more likely to view compared to the national average. For example, women in Alaska are 110% more into Party videos, in Colorado they’re 41% more into Brunettes, in D.C. they’re 166% more into Smoking videos and in Kentucky they’re 66% more into Feet.

In Oklahoma women are 67% more into seeing Tattooed Women, in North Dakota they enjoy Cosplay videos 76% more, in Missouri they’re 25% more into Fisting and in West Virginia they’re 72% more likely to view Virtual Reality videos.

To further differentiate, we can look at the top relative search terms that have been entered by women in each state. Women compared to the national average, women in Montana are are 99% more likely to search ‘surprise anal’, Indiana’s women are 19% more into ‘daddy’, in Maine they’re 91% more into ‘gloryhole’ and in West Virginia they prefer ‘bdsm’ 23% more.

Some other standout searches include a preference for ‘Navajo’ videos in Arizona and New Mexico, ‘bedgasm’ is 52% more popular with women in Nebraska, Idaho’s women like ‘My Little Pony‘ 61% more, and ‘anime’ is 36% more popular in Kansas and 95% more popular in Wyoming.

In some states women prefer to keep things local. For example, in Maryland they’re 66% more likely to search ‘Baltimore’, in Michigan they’re 39% more into ‘Detroit’ searches, in Pensylvania ‘Philly’ is 309% more popular and in Nevada women are 11% more likely to search ‘Las Vegas’.

Our statisticians also took a quick look at how female porn viewership differs among women of different age groups. When compared to all other ages, women aged 18 to 24 are 81% more into Hentai videos and women over the age of 65 are 143% more into seeing Handjob videos.

  • 18 to 24: Hentai (+81%)
  • 25 to 34: Tattooed Women (+32%)
  • 35 to 44: Double Penetration (+29%)
  • 45 to 54: Mature (+39%)
  • 55 to 64: Vintage (+78%)
  • 65+: Handjob (+143%)

To learn more how women differ from men, you can check our our 2018 Year in Review. For events that bring women together, be sure to check our traffic changes during the 2017 and 2018 Women’s March. For a previous Women’s Day, Pornhub’s statisticians also took a closer look at Women and Tech to see how device usage differs among women when compared to men.
