Life imitates art, and eventually porn imitates everything, so perhaps it’s no surprise to see that ‘Bowsette’ also made our list of searches that defined 2018. After the original Nintendo fan-art went viral, searches for Bowsette exceeded 3 million in just one week and resulted in the release of a live-action Bowsette themed porn parody (NSFW) with more than 720,000 views.

Last year’s most popular video game search ‘Overwatch’ dropped 7 spots to make way for new video game favorite ‘Fortnite’. 2018 saw ‘cartoon’ slip 6 positions, while ‘anime’ gained an impressive 22. Both ‘big ass’ and ‘big tits’ saw big growth by 4 and 6 spots respectively.



Searches for ‘Fortnite’ were equally popular among Pornhub Gay viewers (as with non-gay viewers).


‘Japanese’ continued it’s second year as the most popular search among 25 to 34 year olds. ‘Fortnite’ was the top trending term,



Game Consoles

PlayStation’s share of console traffic dropped by 3% in 2018 while the Xbox share grew by 4%. That wasn’t enough to unseat PlayStation as the top choice for playing with oneself, as it still made up 54.4% of all console 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!



Video Game Characters

There’s good reason that Bowsette became one of our top 10 terms that defined 2018, with an incredible 34.6 million searches! (See Bowser and Bowsette Insights for more coverage). Although she was based on fan art and never actually appeared in any games, we nonetheless felt that Bowsette deserved a spot at the top of our game character searches.


Video game Fortnite gave 2017’s favorite Overwatch a run for it’s money in 2018, but Overwatch characters were still on top when it came to searches. Overwatch’s Brigitte was the most searched game character at 4.8 million with a massive surge in searches after the March game update. (See Overwatch Brigitte Insights). Mercy was the second most popular Overwatch character at 3.2 million searches, followed by the Ashe character who only arrived in November but managed 2.6 million views in just over a month. (See Overwatch Ashe Insights).



As one of 2018’s defining terms, Fortnite had a big year on Pornhub, beginning with our first Fortnite Battle Royal Insights in March. When the Fortnite Server Outage happened in April, searches for Fortnite increased by 60% as players were looking for something else to keep their hands busy. The Fortnite Season 5 release caused another increase in searches, as did Fortnite Season 6 in September. Season 6 introduced the character Calamity who would be Fortnite’s most searched character of 2018 with 2.5 million searches.


Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft is a top game (and movie) character search year after year. Her popularity was bolstered in 2018 with both a fresh game and big screen movie release leading to 4.5 million searches. Lara Croft is also one of our top Halloween Costume Searches each year.


While it didn’t register any specific character searches, the game Red Dead Redemption became a top search on Pornhub after it was released in October, leading to over 1 million searches and a 745% increase in ‘Wild West’ and 489% in ‘Western’ related searches. See our full Red Dead Redemption Insights for more details.
Thanks mods for the title change:geek:

I wonder if Trans being such a searched subject, has resulted in a lot of self-hatred and shame become the target for outward hate against the trans community. Kinda like how many homophobes are gay themselves, but in denial. Trans searches up massive for 35-44, 45-54 and 55-64. (124%, 214% 290%)

Among the younglings, Hentai, Japanese and Korean are totally dominating. Oh my tentacles! Asian women fetishized indeed!




Stopped watching porn a while ago and feel better for it! Recommend it for others. Not in a NoFap sense, but just use your imagination. Think its better for your mental well being over the long term.

PS4 users are the biggest wankers, no surprise there (that has been consistent for many years now, although slight drop in market share this time around), but the rise in Vita users is certainly impressive. Perhaps since the system really is on its last legs, people want to give it one last chance. Shake hand(s) to say goodbye.

Some really interesting stuff there.

Lots of love for asians across all categories.

Very curious about the "Romantic" search being so high.

Someone is searching for Kitana. Back in the days I thought she was so hot (the one in the Mortal Kombat movie).

Interesting results, before the whole Trump thing never heard of Stormy.
Quite the career boost (though she's retired I think?)

Not gonna lie I didn’t know people watch hentai like that. I’m not surprised at Japanese porn being high, also it seems vita owners found something pretty useful.

Why is Japanese porn so high? Is it the allure of mystery provided by the pixelation?

They make the best porn with all kinds of fetishes. They pretty much make 3D hentai with all the taboo topics and people also have started fansubbing that stuff as well... so anyone who is into hentai will go down the JAV route.

Out of all the times I've thought about sex, I'm pretty sure I have never thought of anything resembling a video game character or cartoon. I guess straight up traditional human ladies is fading away. lol.

I can understand some people sexing it up with characters that resemble human form, but who the fuck is thinking about fucking Pokemon characters?
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Stormy Daniels #1! This should go to politics instead lol.
We have politics infiltrating games, now we have politics infiltrating porn.

Are we going to have a politics porn category now?

Well in that case, I'm never going to play Pokemon with my nieces again. Don't want them thinking bad thoughts about this guy...

Reading this, my first thought was, "They have Fortnite porn?" But I went and checked and now I'm deeply disappointed.
