Popularity of Duke Pornstar Belle Knox on Pornhub

Belle Knox is hardly the first University student to do porn in order to pay tuition, but she’s the first whose outing by a fellow student caused a national firestorm of media coverage. In case you haven’t caught wind of this story yet, here’s the low down. Belle Knox (a.k.a. The Duke University Pornstar), a freshman at Duke University, was outed when a classmate of hers recognized her from one of her videos.

News of Belle’s part time porn work took off like a firestorm, starting mid-February in Durham (where Duke University is located), then across North Carolina, the United States and Worldwide. Pornhub’s statisticians analyzed the data in these key regions to see how interest in her videos compared to the international media coverage her story received.


Pornhub’s Top Search Terms in US Cities

Pornhub Insights previously told us what users from each state search for on Pornhub, and how long they last on the site. This time our statisticians got together with the folks at Digg to find out what the Top 5 search terms are in major cities across the United States. In addition we analyzed which pornstars are the most popular. Perennial MILF favorite “Lisa Ann” still tops the list in most cities, but new babes like reality star “Farrah Abraham” and Duke University student “Belle Knox” managed to take the top spot in some places.


Porn Equality – Gay Viewers by US State

If it’s true what they say about married couples not having sex, then many are still turning to porn for their sexual satisfaction.

Pornhub recently got together with our friends at Buzzfeed to bring you our latest porn statistics. They asked us if the same might be true about gay married couples? Do the states with legalized gay marriage watch more gay porn than the states where it is still illegal?


Pornhub & Serbia

This time around, the Pornhub statisticians set their sights on the Southeast European Republic of Serbia – home of the electrifying scientist Nikola Tesla. So did we discover any ‘shocking’ insights while looking at the ‘current’ porn habits of Serbians? Read on to find out!

Serbians spend on average just 7 minutes and 6 seconds per visit to Pornhub, far short of the worldwide average of 8 minutes and 51 seconds. Compare these numbers to other countries we’ve studied like the United Kingdom, where they average 9 min 42 secs and the United States with 10 min 39 secs.


Pornhub Traffic During the Olympic Opening Ceremony

The long awaited Sochi Olympics are officially underway! In this edition we will be hard at work to show which countries are more excited by the Olympic Opening ceremonies than they are by the world’s number 1 adult website (at least temporarily). As we saw in 2010 and 2012, the host countries log off of Pornhub to watch the start of their Olympic journey. This time around, Russia recorded a 15% drop while all eyes were on Sochi, compared to a 17% drop in Canada for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and a massive 27% drop in the UK for the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
