Pornhub’s Year in Review reveals the suss shit we searched for in 2018

It’s been a heaving year for Pornhub, with 33.5 billion visitors (up 5 billion from last year) or 92 million visits per day.

Before we get into it, here are my peaks and pits. My least favourite insight is that Elastigirl from The Incredibles as well as the larger Incredibles cast were among the popular ‘celeb’ searches. My heart is broken and you all officially ruin everything that is pure and decent.

My favourite insight is that Android devices now make up 54.4% of mobile phone visits, while iOS only accounts for 44.4%. The king is dead.
