The Most Searched Porn Stars of 2019 (via PornHub)

Want to know the most popular porn stars from 2019?

In a constant battle for the top spot with XNXX and XVideos for the most popular and visited adult website in the world, Pornhub receives around 3 billion visitors every year. This makes it one of the best go-tos for reliable data on the global search trends for adult content. Fortunately, the folks at Pornhub are as generous with their insights as they are with free porn videos. As well as providing regular snapshots and features about how users are interacting with content on their site they also produce an annual Year in Review.

This report summarizes some of the best stats and facts from across the world and, in this feature, we’ll share with you some of the highlights starting with just why Pornhub is the market leader on porn facts as well as bringing you details of the most searched for porn stars of 2019.

Pornhub Insights

Whilst there are some countries where access to Pornhub is banned there aren’t many nations on the planet where this popular porn hosting site isn’t ranked in the top 50 most visited websites. With annual traffic numbers in excess of 42 billion hits, the information coming into their site is a powerful tool to assess global trends.

In 2019, more than 1.36 million hours of fresh, new content was uploaded to their platform which, if you watched without any breaks, would take you more than 169 years to finish….that’s not including their already staggering library of content which now runs to around 10.5 million clips!

Last year alone, they were responsible for the transfer of 6,597 Petabytes of data across the worldwide web. With the average laptop having 1 TB of storage capacity that’s the equivalent of almost seven million laptops! Stacked on top of each other, this would reach a height of 131,940m tall or 82 miles high…..enough to reach into space!

Not only are they a popular platform for uploading, streaming and downloading videos but Pornhub is also a pretty big social media platform too. In 2019, the site was responsible for:

  • 203+ million video votes
  • 70+ million messages being sent
  • 5+ million video comments

These numbers are staggering so try and imagine it this way instead; for every minute on Pornhub:

  • 14, or 2.8 hours’ worth of, videos are uploaded
  • 29 comments are made on videos
  • 134 messages are sent
  • 343 friend requests are sent
  • 219,985 videos are viewed
  • 80,032 visitors hit the site
  • 77,861 searches are performed
  • 12,550 GB of data are transferred

There’s little doubting that Pornhub know their beans when it comes to porn stats. So, what can they tell us about the world’s appetite for adult content in 2019?

Top Porn Searches 2019

There are lots of metrics for defining the top searches over the course of a year and the first is those trending searches that made the headlines in 2019.

Exactly what where we searching for on Pornhub in 2019? Image via Flickr.

The Most Searched Terms for 2019 were a common mix of the usual suspects with very little change in rank but a few big movers suggest that Asian porn is rising in popularity:

Rank Search Term Rank Change
1 Japanese Up 4 Places
2 Hentai
3 Lesbian Down 2 Places
4 MILF Down 1 Place
5 Korean Up 5 Places
6 Step Mom Down 3 Places
7 Massage Down 1 Place
8 Anal Down 1 Place
9 Ebony Up 1 Place
10 Big Ass Down 1 Place

 

Globally, the top ten searches which defined the year were dominated by an appetite for amateur porn and fantasy roleplay. The top search terms that defined 2019 on Pornhub were:

  1. Amateur
  2. Alien
  3. POV
  4. Belle Delphine
  5. Cosplay
  6. Mature
  7. Bisexual
  8. Apex Legends
  9. ASMR
  10. Femdom

Interestingly, the Instagram glamour model and Brit, Belle Delphine, who has made a name for herself in the world of Cosplay made the top ten after she promised to create an amateur account if her post reached a million likes. Of course, she achieved this goal and, true to her word, opened a Pornhub Model page. However, her foray into the adult industry has been disappointing for anyone who hoped to see her engage in any hardcore activity. Instead, her page features teasing troll/spoof NSFW videos that are (on average) downvoted to around 40%.

Most Popular Porn Stars of 2019

It’s no surprise however that this media stunt found Delphine topping the list of most searched for celebrities on Pornhub as well. Which is a surprise as this list is usually dominated by the media personality Kim Kardashian. But, for 2019 the Most Searched for People and Celebrities were:

Rank People/Celebrities Famous for… Total Searches
1 Belle Delphine Social media personality 30,910,569
2 Kim Kardashian Media personality 18,817,924
3 Cardi B Artist 11,823,278
4 Lena The Plug Social media personality 10,924,824
5 Ariana Grande Artist 9,009,394
6 Nicki Minaj Artist 8,459,709
7 Selena Gomez Artist 7,396, 703
8 Kylie Jenner Media personality 5,924,383
9 Maitland Ward Actor 5,235,383
10 Miley Cyrus Artist 4,923,335

But what about the ‘real’ porn stars?

Well, 2019 was another year for the same faces to be in the top ten but there were a couple of new entrants and big movers. The Most Searched for Porn Stars (Male & Female) last year were:

2019

Porn Star Nationality Rank Change Since 2018

7 Mia Malkova (F) American Down 1 Place
8 Kim Kardashian (F) American Up 6 Places
9 Nicole Aniston (F) American Down 2 Places

It is, perhaps, no surprise that this list is dominated by porn stars who hail from the United States with Pornhub getting almost 25% of its traffic from here. The picture varies a lot depending on which country you analyse (see ‘Top Regional Porn Stars of 2019’, below).

Just one male porn star made the top ten in the form of Spanish personality, Jordi El Nino Polla (Dick Boy) with the rest of the fellas ranking much lower. However, the most Searched for Male Porn Stars of 2019 were:
