Animated Demon Rape is the Second Most Searched For Category on Pornhub (4th Among Women)

What a world we live in. On Pornhub Hentai is the second most searched category overall, which weirded me out to no end until I scrolled down a little further. Did I read that right? Hentai is the fourth most popular category among women? I suppose I knew that some women are into this (and I’ve dated women into rape fantasy stuff), but again, I ummm, this is one of the weirder things I’ve ever read. And yes, I know not all Hentai is super creepy but it didn’t make as catchy a headline. This is the natural arc of the human imagination apparently. I still see posts in my feed where rich people are apparently Illuminati Satanists because of their taste in modern art, buuuuut, getting off to tentacle demon rape? Totally normal. Everybody does that shit. (from Inverse)

“Between climate change disasters and hyper partisan politics, 2017 was a true bummer of a year. It’s no wonder, then, that our porn-watching habits turned to pure fantasy to lighten things up. Pornhub, the largest pornography site on the web, released its annual year in review statistics Tuesday and judging by our interests — in everything from Hentai, to Rick and Morty, to fidget spinners — it looks like escapism is in style, and sometimes the goofier the better.

Search terms in 2017 saw Hentai move up six spots to land as the second most searched term of 2017, behind “lesbian.” Equally non-3D searches for “Cartoon” and “Overwatch” also made it to twelfth and thirteenth place, respectively.

In terms of new search trends in 2017, Rick and Morty-parody porn, ASMR, and VR porn rose from relative obscurity over the year.

So did fidget spinners; the most asinine of toys somehow became a sexual accessory to Pornhub’s male-identifying viewership. It was one of the biggest breakout search terms in 2017, followed by “cheerleader.”
