Statistics on Porn Searches...

A few remarkable stats from Click: What Millions of People Are Doing Online and Why it Matters, a book that analyses historical patterns in search engine use.


  • The domain name Sex.com has generated over $100 million in revenues over the last decade, despite having no content (only advertisement links).

  • Porn sites account for 10% of all internet activity.

  • Friday is the day each week with the most searches for porn; Sunday the least.

  • The gender gap for porn searches - 72% male, 28% female. However, when it comes to "fan fiction", meaning sites based more on the written word than video, the ratio is 65% female with the over-24 age group in the majority.

  • Midwest users are more likely to search for porn than those who live on the coasts.

  • Winter sees a rise in porn search for cold weather states.

  • Red-state users are more likely to search for wife-swapping sites, adult webcams, adult matchmaking sites, and voyeurism. Blue-state users are more likely to search directories for adult entertainers and escorts.

  • There is a negative correlation between porn sites and online social networks. In other words, as social networks have risen since 2006, there has been a decrease in searches for porn, particularly among 18-34 year-olds.

  • There is a similar negative correlation for online dating sites as well.


Just some fodder for your upcoming Thanksgiving Day Dinner.
