PornHub Report Part #3: The Hottest Porn Trends of 2019

Reading time: 3.5 minutes

When PornHub launched in 2007, it changed the adult entertainment industry forever.  Never before has such a massive collection of xxx videos been available in one place! But did you know that their internal data collection has been just as much of a game-changer for the industry?  

They track porn trends with more efficiency and accuracy than anyone, thanks to their enormous amount of web traffic. They recently released their 2019 Year in Review, which has all the hottest adult industry trends. We have all the highlights for you, as well as our own expert analysis!

The huge popularity of Japanese and Asian porn, I was pleasantly surprised to find, owes very little to being fetishized by Westerners. Not that there’s anything wrong with being attracted to Asian women regardless of your own cultural background, but I think we all know that one guy who takes it to a super creepy place. Rather, porn is gaining popularity throughout Asia, and many of the searches from that region are for Asian porn. If we were just looking at the Americas, “lesbian” was the category that utterly dominated this year! 

Categories That Gained the Most Traffic in 2019

  1. Amateur - Up 108%

  2. Varified Couples - Up 93%

  3. Tattooed Women - Up 85%

  4. Popular with women - Up 65%

  5. Romantic - Up 56%

  6. Japanese - Up 53% 

  7. Solo Female - Up 46%

  8. Hentai - Up 36%

  9. Anal - Up 30%

  10. Mature - Up 22%

This has definitely been THE year for amateur porn.  While it’s been steadily growing for more than a decade, it is quickly becoming the dominant force in the industry. PornHub even names it the #1 term that has defined 2019, which we explain more about in Part #1 of our PornHub Report Analysis.

Other search changes are largely a result of changing demographics among porn viewers. While men in Western countries are still the biggest porn consumers, they no longer represent as much of the market as they once did. You can really see the influence of female viewers on this list, and, as mentioned above, viewers from Asian countries. We go into more detail about who’s viewing what types of porn in Part #2 of our analysis.

19 of the top 20 pornstars are women, Jordi El Nino Polla being the exception. At just 18 years old, Miami native Abella Danger is by far the youngest star on this list.  Given the rising popularity of MILFs, she can expect to enjoy a long career if that’s what she chooses. The oldest pornstar on the list is 47 year old Lisa Ann, though she is hardly the only MILF to make the list. 7 out of 20 of these starlets are over 30 and 3 more will be turning 30 in the coming months.  

Most Searched For Male Pornstars of 2019

  1. Jordi El Nino Polla

  2. Alex Adams

  3. Owen Gray

  4. Johnny Sins

  5. James Deen

  6. Mark Rockwell

  7. Rocco Seffredi

  8. Danny D

  9. Ricky Johnson

  10. Manuel Ferrara

  11. Mandingo

  12. Antonio Mallorca

  13. Juan El Caballo Loco

  14. Nacho Vidal

  15. Bruce Venture

The list of male pornstars is notable for its variety.  There is a huge range of ages, nationalities, and ethnicities represented here.  However, it is clear that people searching for heterosexual porn are more inclined to search by the name of the actress, rather than the male costar. The only man to crack the top 20 overall was Jordi El Nino Polla. Alex Adams grabbed the #2 slot for male pornstars, but is ranked 31st overall on PornHub. At the bottom of the list, Bruce Venture is the 15th most searched for male pornstar, but ranks at #264 overall when female pornstars are included.

Most Searched for Celebrities

  1. Belle Daphine

  2. Kim Kardashian 

  3. Cardi B

  4. Lena the Plug

  5. Ariana Grande

 

This is is hardly surprising, given that most have all dipped their toes into the Adult Entertainment industry.  Belle set up a spoof page on PornHub as a publicity stunt, Kim K has one of the most infamous celebrity porn videos in history, Cardi B worked as a stripper before she got her big break, and Lena the Plug promised to release a sex tape if she hit 1 million subscribers. 

Most Searched from TV & Movies

  1. Avengers

  2. Harley Quinn

  3. Teen Titans

  4. Incredibles

  5. Captain Marvel

  6. Family Guy

  7. Star Wars

  8. Simpsons

  9. Black Widow

  10. Joker

As you can see, superheroes are by far the most popular characters when it comes to porn searches. 

Most Searched Video Games

  1. Overwatch

  2. Fortnite

  3. Pokemon

  4. Minecraft

  5. Apex Legends

  6. Resident Evil

  7. Mortal Combat

The biggest news for this list is that Apex Legends shot straight up the list after its release in February and has remained popular all year.
