We’re sure you are as interested as we are in the statistics of pornography. Thankfully, Pornhub – the most visited porn website in the world – happily and regularly provides all the statistical analysis you could ever dream of. Their Pornhub Insights page is remarkably detailed, providing numbers, graphs, and infographics. This rather huge data set has yielded many top 10 search lists before, and this time is no different: Behold, the top 10 search terms for the United Kingdom in 2015.

The top three are “lesbian,” “squirt” and “step mom,” in descending order. Perhaps somewhat bizarrely for a top 10 list, the rather niche term “cartoon” comes in at number seven; oddly, the term “British chav” landed at a remarkable number nine, soaring up 23 spots from the position it occupied in 2014 – a whopping search increase of 169 percent. The top three categories are “lesbian,” “teen” and “mature,” at least showing that pornography isn’t ageist, if anything.

Although this may not come as a surprise, the most common time for Brits to have a bit of masturbatory mischief is between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., with the least likely time being at 4 a.m. – presumably because they’re then asleep. Curiously, there is another peak at 4 p.m., when most people are at work. Make of that what you will.

What’s with that 4 p.m. peak? Pornhub

Pornographic preferences vary between men and women, of course – British women, which make up 22 percent of British users, are most interested in “lesbian,” “threesome” and “squirt” digital naughtiness. Men, on the other hand, are far more stimulated by “step mom,” “teen” and “MILF” pornography.

Pornography isn’t always viewed on a desktop device either. The British public visit the website mostly on their smartphones: An incredible 53 percent use their iPhones or Android devices to have a cheeky peek. Combined with the slightly mysterious 4 p.m. porn-viewing peak, this makes for slightly uncomfortable reading.

Lastly, the age demographics. Apparently, roughly 31 percent of randy Brits that meander on over to the site are aged between 18 to 24 – a clear majority. The average age of a Pornhub visitor is 35.3 years, but a not-insignificant 4.5 percent of browsers are over the age of 65.

What a diverse bunch of filthy-minded people the Brits are. If you’re still curious, there are plenty of stats for different countries around the world available on the site itself. They even track which game consoles Pornhub is visited on – which even includes the handheld Nintendo 3DS. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

The PS4 is the most popular console by several measures, it seems. Pornhub
