Pornhub reveals iOS vs. Android porn preferences

“September means the beginning of sweater weather, the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the launch of a new iPhone,” Pornhub Insights (SFW) reports. “Now that the highly anticipated iPhone 6s line has finally hit stores and is smashing sales records, the Pornhub statisticians have decided to dig through the data and found out what it is that separates iPhone-wielding Pornhub users from our Android-loyal visitors, in terms of how they interact with the site and what kinds of content they prefer.”

“Currently, just over 60% of our traffic comes from mobile devices, so without any further ado, let’s take a look at what makes each of these major subsets of Pornhub’s viewership tick,” Pornhub Insights reports. “We’ll start by taking a look at how traffic shares for iOS and Android have grown over the course of the last 5 years. As depicted in the chart below, back in 2010, traffic originating from devices operating on either iOS or Android accounted for a mere 12% of overall traffic collectively. Jump forward to today, and this figure has shot up to a whopping 63%.”

Pornhub: iOS vs. Android traffic shares

“Interestingly, Android-based users take the lion’s share of traffic shares when it comes to phone-based traffic [52% to 42%] but iOS really cleans up on the tablet front [68% to 30%],” Pornhub Insights reports. “Android and iOS-based users also have their own distinct tastes with regards to the types of content that they enjoy on their respective devices. To illustrate this best, our statisticians took a look at which categories earned proportionally more views from one OS group to the other.”

“iOS users – let that freak flag fly. This group views videos in the Bondage and Fetish categories 105% and 66% more than Android users, who appear to prefer ebony and cartoon-themed content significantly more,” Pornhub Insights reports. “Android users also enjoy more full-figured women in their porn, in that they view videos in Pornhubs’s BBW category 138% more than iOS users, while iOS users like their ladies mature, as made evident by the fact that these viewers browse videos in our MILF and Mature categories 134% and 70% more than Android users.”

“If we’re going for efficiency here, iOS-based users get the job done faster. They tend to spend a mere 8 minutes and 40 seconds on site when they visit Pornhub and tend to reach satisfaction after just 9.8 page views,” Pornhub Insights reports. “There is also an argument to be made for lasting power, which is where Android users shine. They spend a leisurely average 10:06 per visit and peak out at 10.9 page views.”

“We’ll shift the focus over to geography now, to take a look at where each operating system is more popular in different parts of the world, as well as within the US,” Pornhub Insights reports. “First off is a breakdown of traffic shares within the top 20 countries that bring the most overall traffic to Pornhub.”

“This next chart indicates which states have the highest proportions of both Android and iOS traffic,” Pornhub Insights reports. “iOS scores especially high in New England and the non-contiguous states, notably Vermont, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Alaska and New Jersey. Much like in the world at large, higher proportions of Android users are located in the southern states, namely South Carolina, Texas and Alabama.”

  1. “If we’re going for efficiency here, iOS-based users get the job done faster.” – PH

    “Phones with off-the-rack processors slapped into mismatched commodity hardware with lowest common denominator software from a search engine company load pages slower.” – MDN

    Well, it’s either because the pages on Android load slower, or….the added exuberance…”Because it’s an iPhone”.

    1. I’ve visited over two-thirds of the states in the U.S. and South Carolina was, in many ways, the most “behind” state. Granted, this was twenty years ago, but racism was rampant.

  2. It is worth noting that over half of the states with the highest Android porn traffic are conservative “red” states. Among iOS users, only one state (Alaska) is red. Hee-haw indeed.

  3. So iOS users like to push the boundaries with bondage and fetish while android users like to settle for fat chicks. Sounds about right as android users are used to settling.
