It’s almost the end of 2018 and we all are getting ready for Christmas and new year celebrations. But wait are we missing something? Oh no, we are not as Pornhub is back with its end of the year review. As we all know Pornhub loves collecting stats on the searches on its site and like every time porn giant had hit the right chords.

Like always Pornhub Insights has delivered its 6th annual year in review, revealing everything that we were searching for on the site, in colorful infographics and charts. And as the years are passing the review by Pornhub is just getting deeper and deeper. Come on don’t start imagining.

Pornhub stats

Stormy Daniels, the upcoming host of the 2019 XBIZ Awards, reached the No. 1 spot for Popular Celebrity Searches thanks to all of those headlines about her and Trump’s past tryst, topping the site’s list of “searches that defined 2018.” That list also includes your standard adult fare like “romantic” and “threesome” and gaming terms like “Fortnite” and “Bowsette”. She had more than 30 million Pornhub searches this past year. Damn Women!

While Bowsette is a fan-made video game character, she’s not the only gaming character to see millions of video searches. Bowsette had the most searches at nearly 35 million but Overwatch’s Brigitte and Mercy, as well as Lara Croft, were other top gaming-related searches. And in case you were wondering, Mario received 2.6 million searches and, yes, Pokémon characters also popped up on the list.

Something new in this year’s review is seeing which events caused the prominent drops and surges: Apple’s September live event and the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Royal Wedding caused the significant drops in the non-sports category. But the biggest increase? Valentine’s Day of course, which was up 7%.
