In 2018, "Stormy Daniels" was the most defining search term on Pornhub dot com. When her name surfaced in the news, whether in reference to bribery payoffs on behalf of Donald Trump or "mushroom penis," searches for her pornographic work skyrocketed. And right behind Stormy in terms of 2018's most defining search terms on Pornhub was "Fortnite." What a glorious year we've had.
Every year, Pornhub releases its "Year in Review" report, churning out statistics on America's kinks. And every year, we're confronted with data on what was tickling our sexual subconscious and how much time we dedicated to getting off. In 2018, the human race made a grand total of 33.5 billion visits to Pornhub, clocking in 92 million daily average visits to the site and 4,791,799 pornographic videos uploaded—enough hours for a single person to continuously watch porn without breaks for 115 years. Great effort out there, team.
The U.S. was the biggest consumer of porn in the world, according to Pornhub, with Americans spending an average of 10 min and 37 seconds on the site per visit, up four seconds from last year. American women made up 27 percent of Pornhub traffic, which was below the worldwide average of 29 percent. "Fortnite" was a top trending search for men and women, and Stormy Daniels was the most searched for porn star for women. In general, women's favorite search term in 2018 was "lesbian," and men's was "japanese."
As far as other porn searches that defined 2018, Pornhub said "romantic," "trans," and "tattoos"—"tattooed women" in particular—were all significant terms. Unfortunately, so was "Bowsette," the viral Nintendo gender-bending version Bowser with a sexy choker. (Last year's defining terms included "porn for women," which we took as a huge win, as well as "Rick and Morty" and "fidget spinner." Those were less flattering.)
Here's a closer look at some of the most popular porn searches and categories of 2018:
