The Differences in What Sons, Dads & Grandpas Like in Porn

PornHub has just released its latest data dump. I’m not a PornHub viewer, but I love the way it analyzes the who’s, what’s, why’s, where’s and how’s of viewers that visit its site. It tells so much about almost everyone’s dirty little secrets. Not surprisingly, sons, dads and grandpas like very different things in porn. The same could be said for daughters, mothers and grandmas since women comprise 23% of viewers on PornHub. I thought it was odd that only 23% of PornHub viewers were 45 and older, but 61% were between the ages of 18 and 34. People between the ages of 35 and 44% make up 16% off PornHub visitors. The average viewer age is 35.3, but the most significant demarcation in what sons and dads prefer is most notable at the 45-year-old mark. The 18-24 group is devoid of any group sex type searches but is heavy on terms like “step-mom”, “MILF”, “mom” and “step-sister”. They tend to be more into “cartoon” and “hentai”. “Massage” doesn’t make an appearance until the 25-34 and 35-44 age groups at number 6 in both groups and then moves up in popularity as ages increase. It’s the top search term for viewers 55 and older. The reverse can be said about “squirt” in that it is a popular search for the 18-24 and 25-34 crowds but doesn’t rank in the age groups beyond. “Smoking” is only really of interest to the middle aged crowd and “granny” is only really searched for those who have either entered or are approaching retirement age. Some interesting trends can also be observed when looking at the top viewed categories for each age group. The “teen” category dominates the top spot across the board until the 65+ group where “mature” takes over, indicating that as people age, they are more and more interested in content that is more representative of who they are. This is further reinforced by the fact that the “mature” category doesn’t appear until we look to the 45-54 group, where it then climbs in popularity until it hits No. 1 with the 65+ group. The “MILF” category is also more popular in the 35-65+ crowd versus the 18-34 bunch.   PornHub found that 18-34-age users are more porn star oriented than their older counterparts. Sixty percent of the list here is comprised of prominent industry names and use social media outlets such as Twitter and Instagram to engage with and build their fan bases. In the middle aged group, porn stars wane a little in popularity but those that do make the cut are definitely indicative of their age group. Leading ladies of yesteryear like Traci Lords and Jenna Jameson are 822% and 29% more likely to be searched for by the 35-54 group than among 18-34-year-old viewers. Perhaps suffering from some considerable seven year itch, the middle aged group is also seemingly very interested in content featuring wives and various “spicing up the marriage” type scenarios. The 55+ group is all about embracing old age. Searches like “very very old granny”, “soft”, “hairy pussy”, and “hairy” show significantly more popularity. It shows that older people are more drawn to visual representations of bodies that are more like their own. While older viewers are far outnumbered, they do last longer on the site. While none of the age groups here can really accurately be accused of being one-minute men or women, it’s clear that the older one gets, the longer they last. The 18-34 crowd finishes up on PornHub a little prematurely in regards to the international 9:16 average time on site. The 45+ crowd hits the 10-minute mark. Perhaps having kids out of the house and retirement affords more time to spend doing the things they enjoy or that older age requires a little more time to get the engine going. I can’t say for sure. However you choose to spin it though, older people just have what it takes to make the good times last.
