'Porn for Women' Searches Went up 1400% in 2017

The Houses of Parliament are seen in London

"Porn for Women." There was a 359 percent increase among female users searching the phrase between 2016 and 2017.

Every year, in addition to several petabytes of porn (1 petabyte = 1 million gigabytes, fyi), Pornhub releases a list detailing the year's NSFW trends.

The difference in data could also be due to the sample size of both sites: Pornhub reports 28.5 billion annual visits to their site over 2017 and xHamster reports over 15 billion annual visits.

Politics also heavily influenced our porn habits a year ago with the Trump family, including patriarch Donald, seeing their Pornhub stock rise as well as British royalty in waiting, Meghan Markle. Or the fact that every 5 minutes, Pornhub transmits more data than the entire contents of the New York Public Library, which contains 50 million books?

Earlier this year, figures from Pornhub, showed that women are far more likely to look at online porn using their phone than men are, it has been revealed. See for example this one, which reveals that the top three trending porn searches past year were "porn for women", "Rick and Morty", and, uh, "fidget spinners".

For men, the most searched terms were typical and unsurprising - "milf", "stepmom" and "mom" porn. The Big Bang Theory Premiere also saw traffic drop off by 5%, and, amusingly, Apple's iPhone X Launch caused Pornhub traffic on Apple mobile devices to drop by a staggering 12%. With last year's fascination with fidget spinners, it's not surprising that spinners were also one of Pornhub's most searched words.

Alabama WR Calvin Ridley entering NFL Draft
His best season with the Crimson Tide came when he had 812 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns in 2016. He finished his collegiate career with 98 yards on 14 carries against Alabama.

In 2016, around 70 percent of the traffic came from smartphones while only 28 percent from desktops and the remaining 2 percent was tablets.

Australia, meanwhile, had a few interesting stats of its own.

The USA continues to be Pornhub's horniest country yet. On average, South Africans spend 11 minutes and 02 seconds on the site. And we still love lesbian porn, while massage porn has apparently fallen out of favour.

Also popular for some ungodly reason? Make of that what you will. If you're feeling particularly shocked by this news, chances are you aren't a woman.

Women represent 26 percent of xHamster's total users with "daddy" the top search among United States, with "mom" the top search term for women globally.
