How much porn is there on the internet?

Are you at all curious about how much pornography is actually out there in cyber space? Probably not but cyber dirt is a mega business and has led to many of the innovations we use today such as social networking, video streaming and chat rooms (think Messenger). All of these started as tools for shady raincoat wearing individuals. 

These days it's not just "certain" types who indulge in the fleshy arts but doctors, lawyers, airline pilots and certainly a fair few priests have indulged but where you aware just how much there is out there?

We have these figures direct from Google but there are many more search engines who will have a fair amount too but let's focus on just Google. The figures below are only 2016 and do not include the so called Dark Net that accounts for up to 98% of web pages so in effect the figures below are possibly only 2% of what some people get up to behind closed doors:

  • In 2016 alone, Pornhub got 23 BILLION visits. That’s 729 people a second, or 64 million a day -nearly equal to the population of the United Kingdom!
  • Enough porn was watched in 2016 on this one website that all the data would fill 194,000,000 USB sticks. If you put the USB sticks end to end, they’d wrap all the way around the moon.
  • Last year alone, 91,980,225,000 videos were watched on Pornhub. That’s 12.5 videos for every person on the planet.
  • Also, 4,599,000,000 hours of porn were watched on the site in just one year. That’s equal to 5,246 centuries.
  • The most popular search term in the whole site was "step mom" for the second year in a row. That’s right, incest-themed porn.

What a world right?!?!

Shockingly and very sadly one of the highest searches is related to under legal age sex from which it is supposed only 0.01% will ever face justice!

Access to the WWW needs to be taken very seriously.
