“Porn for Women” is the Top Trending Search on Pornhub in 2017

The Philippines nabs a few top spots, too!

By many accounts, 2017 was the year when women’s issues took center stage, and it looks like this was reflected in Pornhub’s top trending searches. After all, the number of queries involving “Porn for Women” increased by a whopping 1400%, showing that the male gaze is taking a back seat for once.

“Two thousand seventeen seems to have been the year where women have come forward to express their desires more openly” says Dr. Laurie Betito, sex therapist and director of the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center (yes, apparently this is a real thing). “From the 'Me too' movement to prominent females the likes of Hillary Clinton and Nikki Haley on the world stage, women are feeling more empowered and they have found their voice. This is a sign of things to come.”

The second most trending search is a lot...stranger. Apparently, people on the internet enjoy Rick and Morty parody porn, and we don’t even want to know what that looks like. Last year’s fidget spinner craze has made its way into people’s sexual fantasies too, with the toy landing third on the list of trending searches.

The Philippines tops the list of countries with the most time spent per visit for the third year in a row, clocking in at 13 minutes and 28 seconds. People the world over have been spending more time on Pornhub, with the average viewing time increasing by 23 seconds. 

It seems like Filipino women are a little more sexually liberated than our reputation as a Catholic country would have people believe. The Philippines has had the biggest proportion of female Pornhub visitors since 2014. In 2017, the proportion of female viewers increased from 35% to 36%.


Pinoy pride has extended to people’s porn viewing habits, too. For the second year in a row, “Pinay” has been the top search term from users in the Philippines. It looks like Filipinas are a little less interested in local men, however—this year, “Pinoy” has given up the second spot to “hentai.”
