Pornhub Top Searches for 2018 Include Fortnite, PS4 Was the Best Place to Watch

2018 was a great year for the gaming industry and also for PornHub. It’s now revealed by Pornhub in the 2018 year review that the video game searches were among the top 10. We got to see big games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Fortnite with new seasons and new Overwatch characters in 2018. With the release of each, there was a huge increase in traffic for these terms on Pornhub in 2018.

It’s confirmed that gamers do love in-game characters and that’s the reason why they end up looking for them on other sites like Pornhub. Gamers do watch porn a lot according to the year review by Pornhub.

Fortnite is a global phenomenon and this time in 2018, it was the second most searched term on Pornhub after a popular pornstar. We don’t know if that’s an achievement or not for Epic Games. Red Dead Redemption 2 searches on Porn sites also increased rapidly following its release.

Fortnite stands at No.2 and Bowsette which is a fan-made female version of the villain from Super Mario stands at No.9 spot. Many games made their way to the top in 2018 but Fortnite did overcome them all.

According to the Pornhub stats for the year review, every time a new character was introduced in Fortnite, searches for each of them increased eventually.

Dr Laurie Betito, Director of the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center said:

Searches like these serve as an indication that people use this site to not only satisfy sexual urges but also to get a different angle on something they are already interested in. To see a famous character or hot topic in a sexual context.

Fantasy plays a big role in pornography (and indeed in human sexuality), so it’s only natural that people will desire seeing sexual scenarios involving the game characters they emotionally connect with. In April when Fortnite’s servers crashed, searches for Fortnite increased by as much as 60% over a 24 hour period.

Now keep games aside, Stormy Daniels managed to reach the top. You can check out the list of top searches on Pornhub below.

The Searches that Defined 2018

  1. Stormy Daniels
  2. Fortnite
  3. 4K
  4. Romantic
  5. Trans
  6. Outdoor
  7. Tattoos
  8. Tinder
  9. Bowsette
  10. Threesome

That’s not all as the game consoles did bring most of the traffic to Pornhub in 2018. Though PS4 traffic to the site dropped by 3% and share of Xbox traffic increased by 4%. PlayStation 4 was the most used to watch porn in 2018 by bringing 54.4% of all console traffic.

Pornhub then also mentioned how they would like to see Nintendo unlocking the web browser feature on Nintendo Switch to see how it impacts the Pornhub traffic.

Nintendo’s 3DS traffic was reduced by nearly half to a measly 0.7%, while the PlayStation Vita grew by 50% to a total of 7.3% of the overall shares.

Should Nintendo decide to unlock the Switch’s hidden web browsing function, it will be interesting to see how that impacts game console traffic to Pornhub. We’ll have to wait for Nintendo and the 2019 Year in Review to see if that happens!

That’s it, folks. Pornhub does thank you for bringing all this traffic to their site. Now you can go back to try out the latest season 7 in Fortnite which is now live. Also, with rumors of next-gen consoles, we can finally get better versions of internet browsers in next-gen consoles which will help the gamers and Pornhub furthermore.
