Earlier Canada had occupied the third spot in Pornhub’s ‘most visits’ list, but this year, India took over the third place.

In India, most searches contained the word ‘Indian’, while ‘Japanese’ and ‘Indonesia’ were also popular with viewers. Sunny Leone remained the most searched porn star. There was also a predominant interest in the ‘Teen’ category among Indian viewers.

 

In 2015, ‘lesbian’ was the most-searched word on Pornhub. This is not surprising as female viewers grew in number this year and lesbian sex is popular with them.

Interestingly, female viewership in India witnessed a big leap as it jumped from 26% in 2014 to 30% in 2015.

 

There was also a steady increase in people using smartphones to access Pornhub videos. Smartphone visits make up for 53% of the traffic. This year saw a slight decline in visits from Android phones (from 50% to 47.9%) and a hike in iOS visits (40.2% to 46.2%).

Android users spent around 10 minutes and 8 seconds on the site, while iOS users were done in about 8 minutes and 40 seconds.

 

In July 2015, ‘Times of India’ revealed the results of a survey of around 400 students. 70% of the boys had watched porn at the age of 10; 93% of the boys said that they thought porn was as addictive as drugs; and 86% said watching porn led to sexual activity in real life.

 

In a 2014 report, ABP Live stated that 80% of college students in India watched porn; 40% of these watched rape porn and 76% admitted that watching rape porn led to the desire to rape women.

Rohit Kumar, 22, a seller of pirated DVDs in Chandigarh, claimed that desi and foreign rape videos are highly sought after. “Everyone, students, rickshawwala bhaiyas and older gentlemen” all like rape videos, according to him.

 

A survey of 8,000 Indian girls and women in 2014 revealed that 49% of girls had learned about sex by watching porn videos.

In 2014, Google Adwords revealed that Indians had used phones 4.1 million times in 2013 to search the word ‘rape’.

 

Keywords included “Indian girls raped”, “raping video”, “raping stories”, “raped in public”, “little girl raped”, “raping mom”, “father raping daughter” and “raped to death”.

We’ve also seen cases of perpetrators uploading videos and photos of rapes and beatings. Instead of being ashamed about it, it seems quite a few Indian men feel like being a rapist is a badge of honor.
