New York, Boston & Philadelphia

In this edition of Pornhub Insights, we’re joined by our friends at Metro US to look at the porn viewing habits of three of the largest cities in the United States. New York city accounts for nearly 8% of all U.S. traffic, while metro area Philadelphia ranks 8th with 2.7% of traffic and Boston at 10th with 2.4% of U.S. traffic. Visitors from New York and Boston both spend about 17 seconds less time on Pornhub compared to the national average visit time of 10 minutes 26 seconds, while visitors from from Philadelphia manage to hold out for 8 seconds longer.

The most popular search terms in New York and Boston are ‘MILF’, ‘step mom’ and ‘hentai’. Philadelphia beats to a different drum, with ‘lesbian’ ranking first, following by ‘MILF’ and ‘step mom’. We find it interesting that while lesbian consistently ranks as one of the top search terms in the United States, it doesn’t make the Top 10 list in either New York or Boston, although ‘lesbian scissoring’ searches are popular in N.Y.C.

The diverse ethnicity of these cities shows through in their relative search term popularity. When compared to the rest of the United States, searches for ‘indian’ are 220% more popular in N.Y.C., ‘latina’ is 103% more popular and ‘asian’ 52% more. In Boston, ‘chinese’ is 173% more popular than elsewhere in the U.S., and in Philadelphia ‘ebony’ and ‘black’ are both more than 90% more popular.

Ebony, Lesbian and MILF are the most viewed video categories in all three metro areas. Once again, ethnic categories shine through in New York when compared to the rest of the U.S., with an 85% increase in popularity for Indian, 43% for Brazilian, 39% for Latina, 37% for Arab, along with Japanese and Asian.

In Boston, Bondage is 25% more popular, as well as 20% for Female Friendly and 19% for Blowjob. In Philadelphia, the Gay – Black category is 47% more popular than elsewhere in the U.S., as well as a 33% increase for Ebony videos.

Lisa Ann is the most searches for pornstar in New York, while Riley Reid takes the top spot in Boston and Philadelphia. In New York, Asa Akira is 110% more popular than elsewhere in the U.S., while Boston sees a 131% increase for Rachel Starr and Philadelphia goes for Cherokee D Ass 142% more often.
