The Human Race Really Outdid Itself with Porn Searches in 2017

Well done, fam.

In 2017, the human race made a grand total of 28.5 billion visits to Pornhub, clocking in 81 million daily average visits to the site and 4,052,543 pornographic videos uploaded, enough hours for a single person to continuously watch porn without breaks for 68 years. The U.S. was the biggest consumer of porn in the world, and each American spent an average of 10 min and 33 secondson the site per visit. Great effort out there, team.

Pornhub collected data from the last year and churned out statisticscomparing men and women, characters, kinks, and more to put everyone's privately enjoyed 2017 into public perspective. Culture-wise, Cardi B and Donald Trump made it into the most-searched celebrities—as did every single Kardashian/Jenner sister—and Harley Quinn was the most-searched movie character, followed by Wonder Woman.

As far as the porn searches that "defined" 2017, Pornhub said "porn for women" came in at number one, which we'll take as a huge win. Unfortunately, that win was followed by "Rick and Morty" in the number two spot, then "fidget spinner" at number three, and, well, ugh. Women's favorite search term in 2017 was "lesbian,"and men's was "milf."

And there's your snapshot. What a glorious year.

Here's a closer look at some of the most popular porn searches and categories of 2017:
