The History of Porn


In the past century, few inventions have really affected or benefited mankind in the same way that Internet pornography has. This may be a slight exaggeration but today we are taking you back to porn’s prehistoric roots and ultimately helping you to fully appreciate the advances that have been made in the realm of porn. Truly, we have come a long way from scribbling renditions of naked bodies on to cave walls to today where we have porn streaming sites (NSFW) that load in the blink of an eye. So, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and touch upon some of the the most memorable moments in porno history.


Pornhub & Italy

Insights Italy 1

It’s been said that Italy has more masterpieces per square mile than any country in the world, so the Pornhub statisticians decided to see for themselves. Turns out it’s true! While excavating this historic land for all of its porn related data as a part of a special collab with our friends over at, we found that the country credited for having invented the thermometer really knows how to heat things up. Aside from all of the museums and ancient architecture, Italy really stuns when it comes to how they get down with the best site in the world. Let’s boot on over!


Pornhub & Easter

PHMKT-480 Easter Insights 3

Easter is the most important of the Christian holidays in that it commemorates Christ dying then subsequently resurrecting for the saving and forgiveness of all mankind. No small feat! Here at Pornhub however, our  research is generally oriented towards the types of resurrections that take place in our viewer’s pants, but today’s post happily marries the two. The Pornhub statisticians made like kids on Easter morning and searched high and low to bring you the data that shows how people all over the world get down with Pornhub on this highest of holidays, so let’s hop to it!


Pornhub & North Korea


East Asia has been on the Pornhub Statistician’s to-do list for a little while now. While most of our recent jaunts have been to European countries like Denmark and Croatia, we have made it our mission to leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting the cold hard porno facts out to our dedicated following. As such, today’s report accounts for an in depth look at how the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea gets freaky with the best site in the world, so let’s get into it!


St. Patrick’s Day Insights


The Pornhub statisticians took a break from their celebrations to look at how Saint Patrick’s Day affected traffic to Pornhub and the type of porn that people were looking to get lucky with. After the results of our Valentines and Christmas holiday reviews, we were expecting a pot of statistical gold from Saint Pat, and we weren’t disappointed.
