This Surprising Country Spends More Time Watching Porn Than Any Other

At the start of the year, companies usually do a ‘look back’ at the previous year – checking their top sales, worst and best moments, or most loyal customers. World’s biggest porn site Pornhub has been doing their version of this annual review for 5 years now, and for the third consecutive year, this archipelago in Southeast Asia topped the list for time spent visit. Yep, you guessed that right – it’s the Philippines.

Pornhub’s latest report revealed that their Filipino visitors spend more time watching porn than any other country. Their average time spent per visit on the website is 13 minutes and 28 seconds – even longer than the global average visit duration which is only 9 minutes and 59 seconds. If you look closely at the data, the Philippines is the sole Asian country who landed on the list.

Comparing it with Pornhub’s previous report, 2017’s data also showed that Filipinos are now spending more time on the porn video-sharing site. In 2016, their average time spent per visit on the site was 12 minutes and 45 seconds.

The country continued to top the list in spite of the government’s efforts to block major porn sites in the country. In January 2017, some Filipinos reported to have been surprised that they can no longer access their favorite adult sites. This was after the government ordered to block these adult sites pursuant to the country’s Republic Act 9775 or anti-child pornography law. Others however revealed that their internet service provider still allowed them to visit Pornhub and other porn sites. This might be the reason why this Asian country wasn’t among the site’s top 5 country referrers of web traffic.

For a known conservative country like the Philippines, the results could either suggest that its people are becoming more open to their sexual desires or it’s a way of distracting themselves from life’s difficulties.
