Extreme Category Insights

Men’s Health asked Pornhub’s statisticians to look into the popularity of our more extreme video categories. It’s hard to say what makes a particular video “extreme”. What one person might consider “hardcore” might seem like perfectly standard sex to someone else. None-the-less, Pornhub has several categories that might be considered extreme, including the three we’re looking at in this edition of Insights: Hardcore, Fetish and Rough-Sex.

Our statisticians noted that all three of these categories have been on the decline in recent years. We can’t say for sure why this might be, but over the same time period interest in real sex including model and amateur videos has been increasing. Out of 90 available categories, Rough Sex presently ranks 35, Fetish ranks 69 and Hardcore ranks 33.

Proportionately, men are 7% more likely to view the Fetish category when compared to women. When compared to other age groups, Fetish videos are less popular with millennials between the ages of 18 to 35. Fetish popularity is highest with visitors aged 45 to 64.

Hardcore videos are 75% more popular with women compared to men. Millennials between the ages of 18 to 34 are also more likely to watch Hardcore videos when compared to older age groups. Visitors over the age of 55% are -17% the least likely to view Hardcore videos when compared to all other age groups.

Just as we found in our 2017 Year in Review, women are far more likely to view Rough Sex videos than men. Our latest data shows that proportionately, women are 63% more interested in the Rough Sex category. Once again it’s millennials aged 18 to 34 who are more likely to view Rough Sex videos. Visitors over the age of 35 are less interested in Rough Sex, especially those over the age of 65 who are -22% less interested.

We hope you enjoyed this extreme edition of Pornhub Insights. Be sure to check out our other recent Insights including Feeder Fetish and Wedgie Fetish.
