Over the past year, technology has played a more pronounced role in our daily lives, as both a source of entertainment, and how we communicate with friends, family and coworkers. Quite often it’s the same tech that we use to touch ourselves, that we use to keep in touch with others, so Forbes asked Pornhub’s statisticians to take a closer look at the tech we use to log on and get off.
130 million people visit Pornhub every day, from all parts of the world and representing a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Analyzing these billions of visits and pageviews gives us a snapshot of not only what sort of porn the world was viewing, but what devices and technologies we were using to connect with the internet.
Pornhub’s statisticians weren’t able to predict who each state voted for, but they were able to share what each state was searching for during election week!
The top relative search is the term that was more often searched in each state when compared to all other states. It’s a snap-shot of what was truly in the hearts and on the minds of everyday Americans while they waited to find out who their next president will be.
Some curiosities included the relative popularity of “succubus” in Oregon, “tushy” in Colorado (how cute!), “tickling” in Georgia, “yoga pants” in Iowa, “wedgie” in Connecticut and “accidental creampie” in Missouri.
Fans of mature porn were searching “granny” in Tennessee but nearby South Carolina preferred “grandma” and Ohio liked “cougar” porn. Hawaiians were searching “808” (the local area code), Louisiana had a craving for “popeyes”, Utah was checking out some wholesome “Mormon” porn while Texas was spicing things up with “sexmex”.
A few of the terms were even election related. There’s no doubt that Florida was big into “Trump”, Delaware was searching for “election” and in D.C. people were more likely to search for “vote” than any other state.
Video games are always a popular search on Pornhub, with New Mexico distracting themselves with “Fortnite” and Kentucky searching for “Among Us”. (See our recent Among Us Insights).
Bigly things, really huuuuuge, massive results were happening in several states like “fat ass” searches in Pennsylvania, “BBW” in West Virginia, “chubby” in Kansas and “big booty” in Alabama.
Oh, and Mississippi, we hope you found what you were looking for when you searched “pron” more than any other state.
On Tuesday November 3rd, millions of Americans headed to the polls to cast their vote for who will be the President of the United States for the next four years. Tens of millions had already cast their vote by mail, making 2020 the largest number of votes ever in a Presidential election.
Mashable asked Pornhub’s statisticians to take a closer look at how Erection Election Day affected Pornhub’s usual traffic levels.
The online game ‘Among Us‘ was originally launched in June of 2018, but didn’t receive mainstream recognition until 2020 when well known Twitch Streamers and YouTubers began playing it. Our friends at Kotaku reached out to see if the increase in popularity carried over to Pornhub as well.
Searches containing ‘Among Us’ began picking up around September 1st and reached their peak on September 16th, with nearly 700,000 searches in a single day! Since September, there have been 4.7 million searches!
With average daily searches of 115,000, ‘Among Us’ currently rivals Pornhub’s most searched games such as Fortnite.

In many ways, and for many people, the upcoming Presidential election will be the defining event of 2020, a year that’s already been like no other in recent memory. The first presidential debate between current President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden took place on September 29th, and was described by news outlets as everything from “unruly” to a “hot mess”.
We’ll leave the political analysis to the talking heads, and instead focus our insights on how the first presidential debate of 2020 affected traffic coming to Pornhub. Since 2013, the Pornhub Insights blog has shown how live events lead millions of people to briefly change their daily porn viewing routine. In fact, we revealed similar data for the 2016 First Presidential Debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
