How Women Are Watching Porn Today, Because We're Viewing It On Our Phones More Than Men

In case anyone out there had any doubts, women do watch porn. In fact, many love watching it on the regular and the number of women who admit to watching porn continue to rise each year. So in honor of International Women's Day, Pornhub put together a list of insights on how women are watching porn. It might surprise you to know that we're significantly watching more of it on one particular device than men are.

According to Pornhub's 2016 Year in Review, it was found that women make up over a fourth of all visitors on the site. And, Pornhub saw significant decreases in traffic on January 21, the day of the Women's March. Viewership even dropped over 20 percent in major cities like Washington D.C., New York, and Los Angeles. If traffic can change that much, clearly porn isn't just a guy thing like many choose to believe.

For these latest insights, Pornhub wanted to look into how women are viewing porn. More specifically, the technology behind where they're getting it and how it compares to men's porn habits. So here are some things you should know on how women are watching porn:
