Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys

Our first Insights post to focus on the porn interests of women was What Women Want. One of the most interesting take-aways from that study and it’s follow-up More of What Women Want was the large amount of gay porn viewed by women. Not only do women view a lot of lesbian porn, but the second most popular category among women was gay porn featuring men. Our friends at Cosmopolitan asked the Pornhub statisticians to dig a little deeper.

In our 2016 Year in Review we found that Pornhub’s proportion of female users had grown to 26% worldwide (from 24% in 2015). The gender split viewing gay male porn is actually much higher at 37% female. Proportionately, that means women are 69% more likely to be viewing gay porn than their male counterparts.

Overall, Gay Male porn is still the second most popular category among women, but for those over the age of 45 it surpasses “Lesbian” to become the #1 most viewed category. To see what types of Gay porn women like the most, we broke it down into the most popular categories.

Gay “black” men are by far the most popular, followed by gay porn involving “straight guys”. Older gay men are more appealing than younger, with “daddy” ranking 6 spots above “twink”.

In our More of What Women Want post, we expanded the demographic statistics and found that 36% of Pornhub’s female viewers are aged 18-24. The number of 18-24 year old women watching Gay Male porn is slightly higher at 40.3%.
