Pornhub’s Numbers Are on the Rise

Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 2:45 PM


Pornhub, the world’s largest pornographic video sharing website, recently released some staggering statistics about pornography usage around the world. In 2013, 14.7 billion people visited their website, about 1.68 million per hour. Pornhub has become one of the prime destinations for pornography viewers.

On average, Pornhub visitors spend about 9 minutes viewing pornography per visit and revisit the website about six times a day. In the United States, that figure increases to just under 11 minutes per visit. This was an increase of 5.1% compared to usage in 2012.

With the average viewer revisiting the website six times per day, it is very likely that many of these users are spending more than an hour per day on this site while at work. At 267 hours per year and $15 per hour, a company is losing over $4000 per year per viewer. This is a huge amount of money and time lost, and if your company employs multiple pornography viewers, this amount increases dramatically.

Sunday is the day that Pornhub has the least amount of visitors. However, once work starts back up on Monday, Pornhub has the highest volume of traffic of the week. Pornography viewers also take breaks for Christmas and New Year’s Eve, with a 28 percent decrease in usage on those days, and breaks for summer vacation, with August being the month with the least amount of traffic. January is the month with the highest volume of traffic.

If this is not alarming enough, Pornhub also released what search term is the top in the world: “Teen.” Pornography users are turning to portrayals of younger people to satisfy themselves. This could be a legal problem for your company and your employees if the underage children are shown.

To protect your company from productivity loss due to employees viewing pornography and any other problems that can result from pornography usage, it is important to block sites such as Pornhub that may contain pornography.
