Here Are The Most Searched Porn Stars Worldwide

You may know some of the household names in the porn industry, like Jenna Jameson or Ron Jeremy, but have you ever wondered who's really the most popular these days? Luckily, Pornhub’s 2015 Year in Review revealed the most searched porn stars in the world ― who are they? An interesting collection, to say the least.

With the release of Pornhub’s 2015 Year in Review, we’ve learned a lot of interesting things so far. We know that the most popular 2015 porn searches in the United States involved a lot of “step mom” and “step sister” terms, along with people looking to get off on watching pornographic cartoons. We also discovered that men and women want different things when it comes to porn, with the ladies still craving as much cunnilingus and lesbian action as possible.

When it came to top porn star searches this year, it was all about the ladies who completely dominated the top 20, with a lot of familiar names from Pornhub's 2014 Year in Review. We also so a combination of brand new porn stars, porn stars who have long been retired, and of course the token celebrity.

Although she didn’t make it into the top 10, interest in August Ames jumped considerably in 2015 as she moved up 47 spots in the ranks. Dillion Harper found herself 18 spots higher than she was last year, but she, too, couldn't break it into the top 10.

But who did make it into the top 10 Most Searched for Porn Stars Worldwide? Here they are in descending order, from 10 to one:

10. Sasha Grey

Coming in at the tenth spot, just like last year, is Sasha Grey. Interestingly enough Grey hasn’t done porn since her 2009 appearance in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience. Maybe the rest of the world hasn’t gotten the memo yet that her porn star days are behind her?

9. Alexis Texas

Down three spots from last year is Alexis Texas in ninth place. Texas has won multiple awards for her performances, and her most recent award was for “Best Butt” at the 2015 NightMoves Awards.

8. Riley Reid

Not only has Riley Reid’s name jumped seven spots on Pornhub’s Most Searched for Porn Stars Worldwide list, but she apparently in the running for being the next Jenna Jameson. According to 2013 piece in LA Weekly, she’s eighth on the list of the "10 Porn Stars Who Could Be the Next Jenna Jameson."

7. Brandi Love

Despite her name, love for Brandi Love is slipping. Although she was sitting pretty in the fifth spot on the top 10 list of most searched porn stars in the world, she has now slid to the seventh spot.

6. Asa Akira

Another porn star that’s slipping in the ranks, but still manages to hold onto being in the top 10 is Asa Akira. Last year Akira, who takes her last name from the 1988 Japanese anime film of the same name, was in third spot but now finds herself in sixth spot.

5. Madison Ivy

As we move into the top five on Pornhub’s Most Searched for Porn Star Worldwide, we come upon Madison Ivy, who is down three spots from last year.

4. Sunny Leone

Up eight whole spots from last year, enough to push her into the top 10, is Sunny Leone in fourth spot for the most searched porn stars worldwide. Despite the obvious new interest in Leone, she retired from the porn industry in 2013.

3. Lisa Ann

She may have quit the porn industry in 1997 for several years, then quit permanently in 2014, but searches for Lisa Ann are alive in well, putting her in third place with global searches for her name.

2. Mia Khalifa

Although Mia Khalifa is brand new to the porn industry, entering in October of 2014, she has made a huge name for herself. Not only have searches for her increased by 2129 percent in the last year, but on the top searched list she’s jumped 197 spots, putting her in second place.

1. Kim Kardashian
