Pornhub’s 2019 Review Reveals What People Were Watching


Pornhub’s 2019 Review Reveals What People Were Watching

Adult film site Pornhub that most pretend to publicly know nothing about, but are privately well aware of, has released its annual year in review, highlighting what men and women were searching for and have been watching in 2019.

“Amateur” was the top search on Pornhub in 2019, followed by “Alien” and “POV.” While we have no answers for why “Alien” became such a popular search this year, Dr. Laurie Betito believes the emergence of “Amateur” speaks to an overall increased interest in seeing “more realistic depictions of sex” on the site.

“It seems that people are looking for more realistic depictions of sex,” Dr. Betito of the Sexual Wellness Center told Pornhub. “‘Real’ people vs. actors seems to be the draw. It’s interesting that more and more people are putting themselves out there as amateurs. Sex has become so much less taboo that those who get a kick out of exhibitionism can do so with very little experience or equipment. The message is: anyone can be a porn star!”

Lana Rhoades was, by far, the most searched pornstar on Pornhub in 2019, jumping three spots from last year with 345 million video views. Mia Khalifa and Riley Reid stayed pat at second and third place for a second straight year.

“Japanese,” “Amateur,” and “Mature” were the top three most viewed categories among men while women were most interested in watching “Lesbian,” followed by “Popular With Women” and “Japanese” this year.
