Women watch porn. Alright? We watch it. And some of us watch a lot of it. In fact, recent research has shown that women watch more porn than men do— at least when length is considered. Pornhub and their Pornhub Insights have long broken down interesting facts and trends about all things porn. But now we have ten years of Pornhub data at our fingertips and looking at the information as a whole provides a whole new understanding. One things that the research found, according to The Cut, is that women, on average, spend 1:14 more minutes a day on the site than male viewers. Which means you're more likely to walk in on one of us flicking the bean than a guy doing... well, whatever it is they do to socks.

Anything that opens us up to discussing women and porn is a huge step forward. Because so many of us do it, but not enough of us talk about it. In fact, a Marie Claire survey found that almost a third of women watched porn every week and nearly 10 percent watch it every day. So it's great to have the conversation and fight the taboo head on.

Here are some other interesting tidbits the data found, because women are into some pretty kinky sh*t:

Women Love Women

The most popular category for women? Lesbians. Straight, gay, or bi — women love women. Interestingly within lesbians searches, women were more likely to search for squirting and strap-ons than men were.

37 Percent Of Gay Male Porn Viewers Are Women

That's right, women love themselves some gay porn — it's the second most popular category for women overall. In fact, it was actually the most popular category when for women over 45. Try looking your mother in the eye now.

Some Women Really Like Rough Sex

There were some big changes in what women were searching for between 2014 and 2015. Men performing cunnilingus skyrocketed by over 500 percent, but so did "f*cked hard and screaming". Romantic sex, meanwhile, only grew by 125 percent.

There's A Valentine's Day Drop

After 6 p.m. on the big V-day, porn searches drop by 17 percent — but more so for women than men. Interestingly, men also show bigger jumps in searches for "love" and "passionate" than women do on Valentine's Day.

Women Are More Likely To Look For For Pregnancy Porn

They're actually 27 percent more likely to look for pregnancy porn and it's most popular in the 25 to 34 age range. It may be that women going through it are the ones most likely to want to watch. I guess it speaks to them.

Women Get Political

The Women's March apparently caused a 20 percent drop in Pornhub traffic to New York, D.C., and L.A.. Interestingly, the drop was in both men and female viewers. Don't worry though, everyone logged back on at 8 pm.

We Like To Go Mobile

Giphy

Women are 16 percent more likely to watch porn on their phones. In fact, we don't like sitting still— we're 34 percent less likely to use our desktops than men are.

As you can see, women and porn go together like — well, women and porn. Ten years of research proves it: we love it and we're not slowing down.
