Pornhub 2013 Year in Review

It’s that time of year again: The internet is looking back at 2013 and reliving the most relevant news stories, YouTube clips and astonishing world feats that happened over the past 12 months. This year, our Pornhub statisticians have made it their mission to break-down and understand the events over the past year, and how they affected traffic to our website.

From offering to help Obama fix his broken website, to making sure that Pornhub can be accessed from every possible device known to man (porn is that important), our statisticians have been busy compiling all the data YOU need to know from the world’s number 1 porn site.

pornhub-visitors-2013bOver the last year, our oh-so-valued users came to Pornhub an astonishing fourteen billion, seven hundred seventy–five million times. What a fantastically astronomical number of visits. The number of users who came to (and thanks to) our site, is so big that we had to make sure we were writing it out correctly. That works out to roughly 1.68 million visits per hour over the entire year. Thanks for giving our servers the workout you did this year – best diet ever!

Why Can’t Every Day be Hump Day

How Long Did You Last?

So that my friends is Pornhub’s 2013 year in review. It seems sex is a hot topic on this new “internet” gizmo; who woulda thunk it? It’s important to note that we would not be able to provide as much content as we do without our diligent users who reward us (and themselves) by coming back to Pornhub day after day after day after day after day after day after day! Everyone needs a stress outlet, and we understand that… Without Pornhub, the world may very well descend into anarchy.

Now that all this data has been compiled, we’ll let the statisticians enjoy the holiday season with their families – but only for a short while, we’ll have plenty of great new insights for you in the New Year… Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friends at everyone’s favorite website (secretly, or not)!
