For long India has been quite sensitive about porn. A ‘ban’ (which was later lifted) was reflective of the show of general negative consensus among the society about the topic. There was a time when even discussing the topic of rape in the parliament was considered a taboo. India has come a long way from that, but when it comes to topic of porn or sex a majority still cringe at even utter the two words.
So PornHub’s survey that puts India in the third position of world’s biggest porn consumers proves why its called the land of Kama Sutra. PornHub, which is one of the worlds’ most visited porn sites, boasts of a huge database of users and their fetishes. They recently released their latest stats which show how porn viewing in general has evolved.
The survey was done to find the connection between smartphones and porn all over the world. It divided porn viewers into three smartphone categories – Android, iOS and others. Due to its larger user base, porn surfers on Android platform were overwhelmingly higher than others in many countries, including India. Over 71 per cent of PornHub’s India traffic is coming from Android, with only 6 per cent using iOS platform. Back in 2010, India’s desktop traffic dominated the list with nearly 88 per cent. In 2015 that number has fallen considerably with a mere 37 per cent of the users using computers to access the site.
PornHub further revels that almost 26 per cent of mobile traffic comes from female viewers and that more that 36 per cent of mobile users are aged between 18 and 24 years.
What is more, compared to iOS users Android users spend more time on the website.
On an average iOS users will remain on the site for about 8 minutes 40 seconds. An Android user sticks around for 10 minutes 6 seconds.
