Ten Facts About Porn That Will Surprise You

Today, porn is ubiquitous on the internet, and studios are working tirelessly to devise fresh genres and fetishes. How much do you really know about the inner workings of the industry? These ten facts may surprise you.

1. Immense profits in the pornography industry

Lust is a primal human instinct. When sex is not discussed, it is certainly thought about. Now, it is the most lucrative industry in the world. It turns out that the production of adult content brings more revenue than Hollywood. Moreover, it is said to earn not only more than Netflix, but more than NBC, CBS, and ABC combined. More than tech giants like Google!

2. The majority of males have watched porn

In a recent study, one researcher from the University of Montreal tried to find men under 30 with no experience of watching sex videos. He failed miserably, as not a single specimen was identified. On average, over two-thirds of males aged 18 to 24 visit porn websites at least once a month, and they are not shy to admit it.

3. Most men watch pornography at work

In the United States, around a fifth of males access porn at their workplace. This obviously explains why business hours account for the largest share of traffic on porn sites. It is clear why many employers choose to restrict online access for their workers! It is possible to assume that elsewhere in the world, the situation could be similar.

4. Men focus on faces

You may think that men will only stare at a woman’s breasts, buttocks and genitals when they watch porn. However, this is a misconception. Male viewers often focus on the face of the female.

5. Most porn is made in America

Despite their religiousness, U.S. citizens are also avid porn producers. The country releases the biggest share of adult content. This might seem like sensationalism, but in the land of the free, a fresh steamy video appears every 39 minutes!

6. The internet is soaked in porn

In fact, sex videos constitute as much as 50% of all online content. On average, the number of unique visitors for such content amounts to 30 million per second.

7. Females and gays are best paid

In terms of income, straight males are discriminated against. Female performers are paid more, and gay porn pays as much as three times more than heterosexual.

8. Ladies like porn, too

A third of around 3,000 respondents in a recent Marie Claire survey admitted watching porn on a weekly basis, and 10% confessed to viewing it daily.

9. Women are most aroused by women

Multiple studies have concluded that the female body is the most erotically pleasing image for females. It is not clear why lesbian porn is rarely watched by men.

10. Americans and Brits adore pornography

A quarter of internet searches in the USA are porn-related! In the United Kingdom, porn sites can boast more traffic than all social media, online shops, gaming platforms, travel, and finance.
