Once again, Pornhub’s 2016 Year in Review gave us the deets on our fellow porn-watching people across the globe. Who's watching? For how long? What are they watching? It's all covered there. From the fact that Americans watch the most porn (as is always the case) and that the search term “lesbian” is the most searched term everywhere, the report is filled with interesting AF info about what we want out of our porn and how we consume it.

And for those of us who stray from the “norm” in regards to our sexual desires, Pornhub's yearly report is a friendly reminder that different strokes for different folks isn’t just an idiom that’s overused, but a fact — it’s also a delightful pun when talking about sex and masturbation.

But while we already know the type of porn we're all watching and who's watching porn the most, let's take a look at exactly how much we're watching — in hours, weeks, months, years, etc. Here's porn consumption on Pornhub ,by the numbers, because we watched 16 seconds more than 2015.

1Porn Watched Every Hour

According to Pornhub, 4,599,000,000 hours of porn were watched in 2016. Wow. That is a very impressive amount, world!

Although you’ve probably yet to really digest that amount, let me throw another one at you. Ready? Pornhub’s research found that 191,625,000 days’ worth of porn was watched in 2016. But with 64 million visits to Pornhub on a daily basis, it’s hard to be too surprised.

3Weeks' Worth Of Porn Watched

When Pornhub broke down those hours by week, it came out to 27,375,000 weeks’ worth of porn watched in 2016.

Because I know your head still hasn't officially blown up yet, when those hours are piled into years, it comes out to 524,641 years’ worth, 52,464 decades’ worth, and 5,246 centuries’ worth of porn was watched this past year alone. Having gotten a D in math, my brain hurts just trying to think about it!

5The U.S. Didn't Win When It Came To Time Spent Per Visit

While the U.S. took home the top prize (well, if there were a tangible prize for it) for watching the most porn, when it came to how much time spent per each visit, the States came in third place at 10 minutes and 15 seconds. The country that did come in at first place were the Philippines at 12 minutes, 45 seconds, keeping them in the top spot for the second year in a row. South Africa came in second place at 10 minutes, 46 seconds.

6Germany Made The Most Impressive Jump In Time Spent

With eight minute and 51 seconds spent on Pornhub during each visit in 2016, Germany jumped 38 seconds from 2015. Argentina also jumped quite a bit by 34 seconds, as did Poland with 28 seconds. India, however, slipped by 70 seconds – more than a whole minute! – putting them at eight minutes and 20 seconds spent during each visit.

7Cubans Have Better Things To Do Than Watch Porn

When it came to countries that spent the least amount of time watching porn, that honor goes to Cuba, where the average time spent looking at porn in that county is a paltry four minutes and 57 seconds. Based on the photos I’ve seen of Cuba’s beaches, I understand this completely: Porn or beach day? It’s an easy choice, TBH.

8People In Mississippi Have A Lot Of Time On Their Hands

GIPHY

Although the U.S. didn’t come in first with time spent on Pornhub, when it was broken down by state, Mississippi came in first at 11 minutes, eight seconds. Not far behind, tying at 10 minutes and 48 seconds, were Alabama and Arkansas.

9More Time Was Spent On Pornhub This Year

GIPHY

Worldwide, the average amount of time spent on Pornhub in 2016 was nine minutes, 36 seconds. This average jumped up by 16 seconds from 2015.

Takeaway? We still have room for improvement when it comes to just how much time we spend watching porn! Sure, 4,599,000,000 is worth bragging about, but wouldn't five billion really be worth bragging about? Yes. That is if this were some sort of competition... but I don't think it is.
