2016 has mercifully come to a close, and what better way to celebrate than by looking back on the year's most popular porn stars? All kinds of people love to watch porn, so it's about time we stopped being embarrassed about our porn consumption and instead openly discuss what does (or doesn't) make us tick. Thanks to Pornhub's 2016 Year In Review, we have more info about people's porn habits than we could have ever possibly asked for — but I'm not complaining.

Whether you're the type to admit it or not, it's totally normal to be curious about what other people get off to. Part of the beauty of sex is that it's so personal to each of us: we all have likes, dislikes, kinks, and fetishes that shape how we experience sex. The same is true of masturbation — there are so many ways to do it, and none of them are wrong. Exploring your own body is one of the best things you can do for your health, and it even makes you better at sex with a partner.

So what kinds of porn do people love to watch? Pornhub revealed the top five porn categories of 2016: lesbian, teen (18+), ebony, MILF, and anal — all pretty predictable IMHO. Pornhub also compiled a handy list of which porn stars were most popular in 2016, based on how often their name was searched.

It's not weird to have a favorite actor or actress, so why should it be taboo to have a favorite porn star? Even porn stars have favorite porn stars! Here are the top 10 most searched-for porn stars of 2016, all of whom are far braver women than I, so kudos to them. (Kim Kardashian technically made the list at number three — apparently people are still searching for her infamous sex tape — but since she is not a porn star, I chose not to include her.)

1Lisa Ann

Lisa Ann scored an impressive 237,170,207 video views in 2016, and was the most searched for porn star overall.

2Mia Khalifa

Mia Khalifa's videos got an impressive 195,122,070 views.

3Riley Reid

Riley racked up 340,127,141 views on her videos last year — she wasn't searched for as often as Lisa Ann, but she's number one in video views.

4Sunny Leone

Sunny's total views for 2016 were 53,945,505.

5Brandi Love

Jumping up one spot in popularity from 2015, Brandi Love was the fifth most searched-for porn star.

6Asa Akira

Though still undoubtedly popular, Asa Akira actually slipped down a notch in the search rankings between 2015 and 2016.

7Madison Ivy

8Alexis Texas

Props to Alexis Texas for a truly great stage name, and for being the eighth most popular porn star of 2016.

9Dillion Harper

Dillion Harper moved up an impressive 10 spots in the popularity rankings in 2016.

10Mia Malkova

Last but not least, Mia Malkova rounds out the top 10 most popular porn stars on Pornhub in 2016.

Though it's certainly an accomplishment to be one of the most searched-for porn stars on the planet, it doesn't have to be a competition. All that really matters is that people are free to enjoy porn however they choose, and get in tune with their sexual desires free of judgment. So no matter who you love to watch or what kind of porn you're into, keep up the self-love in 2017!
