Women are now more likely to watch porn on their phones than men

Women are more likely to watch porn on their phones that men are – with men still preferring to watch on their PCs.

Data from the world’s largest porn site, Pornhub showed that a majority of women watch pornography using mobile devices – with 71% opting for a smartphone and 17% for a tablet.

Around 26% of the site’s users are thought to be women – and women are 16% more likely to access the site via a phone than men.

Pornhub says that the level of female customers is now sufficiently high that the site saw a significant drop in traffic during the Women’s March in January 2017.

Men, by contrast, are more likely to access the site via PC – with just 69% accessing the site via mobile devices.

Statistics from Pornhub show that female porn viewership is on the rise worldwide – with women making up nearly half of viewers in countries such as Jamaica.

Sex expert Dr Laurie Betito said in a press release, ‘Women appear to be more in control of their sexuality and what excites them. It’s interesting to note that the majority of the countries where female viewership is the highest are democratic countries.

‘This trend will hopefully continue, to the point where women have as much control of their sexuality as men.’
