MANILA – Filipinos are among the world’s top consumers of porn at No. 19, according to the 2014 year in review report by website Pornhub.

In terms of time spent watching porn, Filipinos even topped the list with an average visit duration of 12 minutes and 40 seconds, beating the Americans, who were second with 9 minutes and 40 seconds.

“As we previously reported, according to data from wearsocial.sg, the Philippines outranked all other Asian-Pacific countries for time spent on the Internet each day (6+ hours) and clearly, a good amount of that time is being spent on Pornhub,” the report said.

“Overall, Pornhub saw a whopping 78.9 billion video views through 2014, which considerably surpasses last year’s 63.2 billion. Specifically, this breaks down to 18.35 individual visits to the site over the course of the year, translating to about 5800 visits per second,” it added.

The United States remained the top source of traffic for Pornhub, followed by the United Kingdom and Canada.

In Asia, India topped all countries, climbing three notches to No. 4, while Japan was up a notch to No. 15. But the Philippines registered the biggest jump among Pornhub’s Top 20 countries as it zoomed eight notches to make the list.

Japanese porn star Maria Ozawa remains the favorite adult performer among Filipinos, while Lisa Anne was this year’s No. 1 ranked porn star overall.

Pornhub also reported that “teen” was the most searched term in the world both this year and last, while coming in at No. 2 was “lesbian.” Among Filipino users, however, the terms “Pinay” and “hentai” were the most searched terms.

The website also found out that Filipinos were most busy watching porn in December and least in January. Monday was the preferred day for porn-viewing among Pinoys but not Tuesdays.

The report also noted that 25% of Pornhub users in the Philippines are female – the fourth highest in the Top 20, led by Brazil with 29%.

“Of particular note are the Philippines and Finland, both of which are home to populations featuring over a quarter of female Pornhub viewers. This is interestingly juxtaposed to the most recent Global Gender Gap Report compiled by the World Economic Forum, which reports Finland in 2nd place and the Philippines in 5th of all countries in the world as having most successfully closed the gender gaps. It looks like these countries are getting closer to sealing the same gap here too as far as porn is concerned!” the report said.

In terms of device used, more Filipinos (48%) now watch porn on their mobile phones compared to desktop computers at 38%. In 2013, more than half of Filipinos used desktops to view porn.
