What Women Want … in Porn

The folks at Pornhub sent over its latest Insights Report about what people are looking for and watching on its site. This time, Pornhub took a close look at what women are looking for and watching on its site. Although the peeps at Pornhub didn’t get back to me about the number of women or the ratio of women and men who watch porn on its site, what women look for reveals some pretty interesting details. By segmenting by gender within Pornhub’s analytics tools, it was able to generate anonymized data that brings us one step closer to answering the time old question: What do women want?

What does she desire?

Apparently women want to watch a bunch of gay sex. Pornhub’s Lesbian category is the leading favorite among the ladies, with Gay (male) following close at second place. The Gay category only falls into seventh place for men in terms of top viewed categories so it’s noteworthy here that overall, this category ranks higher with the sex opposite to that which this type of content is intended for.

Women also have a lot more interest in For Women, Gangbang, Rough Sex and Bondage than men, but there was no love from the ladies for the bigger beauties of porno land with the BBW category. It was noticeably absent from the list on the female side despite its ranking at 13th place for the men. Women didn’t share the same love as men for Amateur, Asian or Creampie porn.

It’s also worthwhile taking a look at which categories on Pornhub women are more likely to view than men, as outlined in the following chart. Unsurprisingly, the female friendly stuff comes out on top here, with the ‘For Women’ category being 193% more likely to be searched by a woman than a man. The same goes for the Lesbian category, which, despite ranking as the sixth most popular category for males is still 132% more likely to be perused by the ladies.

Apparently, women also really like watching men take care of business as the Solo Male category is 132% more popular with the fairer sex. Things get heated pretty quickly after this though, with the Hardcore, Rough Sex, Double Penetration and Gangbang categories all showing women to be between 80-100% more likely to be lurking these extra explicit parts of Pornhub.

What is she looking for?

Through Pornhub’s anonymized data analytics tools, it was also able to compare and contrast the specific search terms used by both men and women to locate their preferred type of porn. Here again, “lesbian” emerges as the most searched term by women in comparison to “teen” for men. The ladies are also much more into multi-partner scenarios with terms “threesome” coming in hot at No. 2 and “gangbang” in at fourth place. Chocolate cravings are also strong on the female side with terms “ebony”, “big black cock”, “black” and “ebony lesbians” all ranking in the Top 25 most searched.

When Pornhub looked at the terms that women are more likely to search for than men, the results are simply Sapphic. For instance, “eating pussy” is over 900% more likely to be searched by a woman than a man, as are terms like “pussy licking”, “tribbing”, “lesbian scissoring” and “ebony lesbians”, which on average are over 600% more searched for by the ladies.

Who gets her going?

Reality television appears to be a theme over on the women’s side, with small-screen stars Kim Kardashian, Mimi Faust and Farrah Abraham all showing up within the Top 5. Men are more drawn to DD cups rather than the D-list as traditional porn star favorites like Lisa Ann, Madison Ivy and Asa Akira top off their list, though Kimmy K. holds it down in third place.

Interestingly enough, Miley Cyrus ranks at 13th place for both genders despite the fact that she’s never even made a sex tape … yet.

Last but not least is a look at which porn stars women are searching for more than men. Like we saw earlier, women were searching for a lot of same-sex porn. Here, male stars dominate the list but Jake Bass and Colby Keller are surprisingly the only gay performers in the slew. Among the few female stars appearing on the list is lesbian favorite Sinn Sage, who is 159% more popular among the ladies.

Industry hunks James Deen and Xander Corvus top off the list and are both around 500% more likely to be searched for by females. Again, there are very few females on this list at all but of the four, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez’s presences reaffirm the interesting intersection observed between women, the porn they search for, and reality television stars.
