U.S. moving its porn viewing to mobile devices

Posted: , by Alan F.

U.S. moving its porn viewing to mobile devices
The U.S. has shifted much of its internet viewing to mobile devices. That also applies to porn, according to information from PornHub. That site alone generated nearly 15 billion hits globally last year. That works out to 1.68 million visits per hour. And in the U.S., 52% of those who visited the site did so using a mobile phone while 10% came to the site (no pun intended) using a tablet. That is up from the 47% and 7% who used a phone and tablet to access the site in the states during 2012.

Out of all the countries tracked by the site, the U.S. led the way in the use of mobile devices to visit. On the other end of the spectrum, only 21% of PornHub's German based, uh, viewers. used a mobile phone to view the XXX rated videos. The U.S. is the only country that used a mobile phone more than half of the time to access the site.

We have to hand it to PornHub (again, no pun intended) as their stats are amazing. They have broken down usage of the site based on days of the week and time of day in each country, even posting which countries watch the site the most during one session. That would be the U.S. where the average user takes ten minutes to complete his, uh, task. The shortage average duration is seen in Japan where the average PornHub viewer spends 7 minutes and 14 seconds viewing a video.

Considering the heavier use of mobile devices to access the site, perhaps next year we can learn the locations in each country where the site is used the most.

What makes you think that only men are watching porn? That very sexist indeed.

Sorry, I meant most guys/those who watch porn. And I'm a guy (wasn't trying to be sexist).

Women watch just as much or more..Women are generally more discreet about it though

They tend to be discreet about a lot of stuff. But in general, most of them have little self control. And how do you know that about women? I'm curious.

It isn't that hard guy, go get some female friends and just ask them. Most will admit to trying it without much real hesitation because no one really cares any more.

It's 2013, watching porn is not a big deal at all whatsoever. Men watch it, women watch it, couples watch it.

I hope you saying that you don't watch it and never will doesn't mean that you place yourself on some kind of high horse or something lol

Oh, but he did place himself on a high horse... on the internet!

Now no one believes you, XperiaFan. When will you come to realize this?! (no pun intended - teehee :P)

Not really. I'm just a few who'd never watch it. But that's just me.

Women may view it a little less, but they'll "READ" the f*ck out of it.

i'm seriously beginning to dislike being an xperia liker after seeing how badly unusual xperia fans are on this site.

they don't seem to be paid trolls but their personalities are just too ridiculous—at least based on what they've been writing here.

those who have to post their opinion about porn online are either narrow minded idiots that watch it just dont admit it, same with masturbation wont admit it but go off and molest little kids.

Oh my... This is for real? I have a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and it's still not good enough to enjoy porn. If I watch it, it will have to be on my 23" desktop monitor.
I guess people are so busy nowadays they have to watch porn during breaks at work or in the car? lol

It is actually all the kids that have mobile phones now that are adding to that stat. Computers can be monitored, but theres no stopping little mobile phones from viewing that stuff.

It's far more better to watch on pc sinfce when on you're mobile the player won't always work and it's laggy for a couple of times. But for convenience, i guess thats the reason that even i chose mobile

On most mobile browsers, users can set their "mode" to desktop, meaning that any such statistics are flawed. The percentage of mobile/tablet users is certainly higher than reported.
