Gay Searches in the United States

As part of a special collaboration with Daily Dot, Pornhub Insights is looking into the popularity of gay porn for the first time, beginning with Americans who account for nearly 40% of Pornhub’s 60 million daily visitors. The proportion of visitors viewing Pornhub’s gay male content in the United States has grown 45% from 2012 to 2016. As of May 2016, over 3% of all U.S. Pornhub visitors go directly to our gay male section of the site.

These numbers exclude the large number of lesbian videos viewed on Pornhub, as those are most often associated with straight visitors. Specifically, this study will look at people viewing Pornhub’s gay male content, where in the U.S. they visit from, and what searches and categories are the most popular.


Slow Motion is Moving Fast

Vocativ asked our Pornhub statisticians to see if Slow Motion videos have grown in popularity over the last few years. With the development of new high FPS cameras, more studios are producing scenes and compilations featuring slow motion sex. But has this translated into interest from Pornhub’s 60 million daily visitors? Apparently it has.


Eurovision Song Contest 2016

The Eurovision Song Contest is the longest-running annual international TV song competition. Beginning in 1956, the 2016 edition marked it’s 61st year. The finale took place on Saturday May 14 and lasted for 4 intense hours as the performers sang and viewers from across Europe televoted for their favorites. As often happens with hotly-anticipated televised events like the Game of Thrones premier, the Super Bowl, NBA Finals and NHL Playoffs, we saw major changes to Pornhub’s normal traffic levels before, during and after the Eurovision finale show.


Norway Insights

Pornhub Insights last reviewed the country of Norway back in 2014, and although they rank 117th worldwide for population, they turn in an impressive 30th spot for traffic to Pornhub. We felt it was time for a full Norwegian update, so we worked with the folks at to provide the following new data.


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.
