Celebrating 10 Years of Porn.. and Data!

Pornhub turns 10 Years Old on May 25th, 2017! To celebrate, we’ve compiled the following infographics to show how the trends have changed over the last decade. Not only have the most popular porn genres changed over the years, the way in which people consume Pornhub has changed as well. In 2008, only 1% of Pornhub’s traffic came from mobile devices, whereas today over 75% of people visit Pornhub on their smartphones and tablets.

How much content is available on Pornhub? As of our birthday, there have been over 10 million videos and 1.5 million hours of content uploaded. 2.8 million of those uploads have been tagged as Amateur videos. With 75 million visitors per day, and 22 million registered users, Pornhub fan’s are a very active community. There have been 6.9 million comments on videos, and nearly half a billion videos ratings!

In 2007 and 2008 the average time spent per visit to Pornhub was from 12 to 13 minutes long. That number has decreased over time to an average of 9 minutes and 46 seconds in 2017. Why the decrease? Over time we have worked hard to optimize the Pornhub experience, in order to help people find the videos they want in the least number of steps. The worldwide penetration of broadband internet has grown considerably in that time, so faster loading means less waiting.

The following infographic features the top 10 video categories over the last decade. Lesbian tops the list, followed by MILF and Amateur. From 2007 to 2010 the most viewed category was Amateur, MILF from 2012 to 2014, and the last 3 years have seen Lesbian on top.

In the following infographic you can see how pornstar tastes have changed over 10 years. Lisa Ann came in first more years than any other pornstar, and her videos have been viewed over 1 billion times!! In second place is Riley Reid with 770 million views and Madison Ivy with 651 million.

The most popular studios producing porn content have changed over the years. Brazzers has topped the annual popularity charts for 3 out of the 10 years, and has had 2.1 billion views of their videos! In second place is Mofos with nearly 1 billion views, plus Nubiles and Fake Taxi with over 700 million views.
