Australia among the top porn consumers in 2019

Adult website Pornhub has released its 2019 data, revealing the porn viewing habits of its users worldwide – many of whom are Australian.

According to the year in review report, Australia ranked ninth in the world for daily traffic to the site, unchanged from the previous year.

The average Pornhub visit length was just over 10 minutes, putting Australia in the top countries for ‘stamina’ as well, ahead of countries including Japan, Sweden, and Mexico, where users finished their average visit quicker.

Overall, women stayed on the site 23 seconds longer than men, with Lesbian their favourite category.

The most popular category for Australian users overall was also Lesbian, matching recent research findings.

Top trending searches for Australia included amateur (up 791%) and thick (up 677%).

Worldwide, some of the more unusual top searches that defined the year in porn included alien, cosplay, and ASMR.

“People are searching for out of the box porn with searches like cosplay and ASMR,” said Dr Laurie Betito of the Sexual Wellness Center.

“The interest in cosplay indicates the desire for all kinds of fantasy play.

“It’s not just about the sex — the costumes play a big role in stimulating the brain, taking people out of the ordinary.

“It’s the same for ASMR, which is all about the sensorial experience.

“People want to be transported to another state of mind, not just by images, but also sounds.”

Pornhub Gay had its own most popular search terms, with Korean, Japanese, and Black topping the rankings.

Also among the most common gay porn searches were daddy, massage, and twink.

As lesbian content is a perennial favourite among ‘straight’ porn, straight was likewise the fifth most popular search on Pornhub Gay, and Straight Guys was the top category viewed.

The most commonly searched gay porn stars last year were Zilv Gudel, William Seed, and Austin Wolf.

The majority of Australian viewers were aged between 25 and 34, but the average user age was 40.

Most people are no longer sitting down at desktop computers to watch porn, with more than three quarters of visits to the site in 2019 being on mobile phones.

Online porn’s popularity shows no signs of waning, with Pornhub receiving 42 billion visits in the last year.
