Here's The Porn That Turns France On

When we think of countries where sex and romance come first, France usually tops the list. Both single and coupled tourists frequently flock to Paris and other cities across the country of cheese and wine for a taste of its signature joie de vivre. But while we know foreigners are seduced by France, what is France seduced by? A new Pornhub Insights study of French users endeavored to find out.

Sexy cliches about French folks abound. French women are supposedly fun-loving, fashion-forward, body positive, care little about diets, and love sensual expression. There's so much PR out there about them that many have tried to clear up stereotypes so they can just be seen as regular women. When it comes to porn searches, do these carefree stereotypes come into play? Even as someone who has traveled in France for many years, my first thought when I saw Pornhub's latest stats was "oh la la! how erotic is this going to be."

Well, it turns out, not very much more or less erotic than other countries getting their porn on. At the core, we're all just human beings, looking up internet porn by our lonesome or not-so-lonesome on a Saturday afternoon. Here are five things Pornhub found out about French sexuality. But first, check out our video on sex positions to last longer in bed:

As far as categories go, after the top search for "French," "Anal" comes in second as the most explored term. Interestingly, this search is most popular in the South of France. How very unsurprising.

2. The French Like French Porn Stars

Of course the top searched woman is Kim Kardashian, because, humanity. But it seems the French like their sex symbols local, since the third most searched porn actress is Clara Morgane, who was born in Marseilles, and the fifth and sixth most searched porn stars are Parisians Anissa Kate and Katsuni.

3. French Women Aren't That Into Pornhub

Compared to the worldwide average of 24 percent, French women clock in at only 20 percent of Pornhub's female customers. However, German woman are only 17 percent, so maybe they're all getting off elsewhere.

4. French Women Like Watching Gangbangs

Giphy

French women may not make up a huge percentage of PornHub's viewership, but when they pop on the site, they're 106 percent more likely to search for gangbangs or double penetration than French men are.

5. French Women Watch Porn For Longer Than Men

Giphy

French women watch porn for an average of nine minutes and 43 seconds, which is 35 seconds longer than their male counterparts are watching. In case you were curious, in the U.S., American women spend a whole minute longer on the site than their male counterparts. So it looks like American women do have something on French ladies after all.
