11 interesting things we’ve learnt about gamers’ porn habits this week

That's NOT what RumblePaks are for

Twenty years ago this month, the PlayStation arrived in homes across North America and Europe. Competing with the Nintendo 64 and the Sega Saturn, the PS1 enjoyed almost 10 years in the gaming limelight before being officially retired in 2004 to make way for the sleek PlayStation 2.

It wouldn’t be long until decent internet access powered its way through those gaming cables. And we all know what the internet is truly for: porn.

To celebrate the PlayStation’s 20th anniversary, porn purveyor YouPorn put together this infographic to showcase how users peruse porn using their games consoles. Here’s what we’ve learnt.

1. Almost no one in the UK uses their Wii for porn.

It’s a near even split between Xbox and PlayStation though. Well, it might be difficult to navigate using a Wiimote while your other hand is otherwise… *ahem* busy.

2. Xbox users are very, very specific about their porn tastes.

Many of their most searched terms sound like risqué cocktails. “Can I please get four Squirting Orgasms, two Lesbian Strap Ons, and a Celebrity Sex Tape?”

3. Wii users’ tastes are a little more Japanese.

Unsurprising, as the majority of YouPorn viewers using the Wii are located in Japan. Big hitters include “hentai shemale”, “anime” and “cartoon porn”, coming in straight after “Zelda” and “Pokemon”. There is truly something for everyone on YouPorn.

4. Women watch porn.

OK, maybe not something we’ve learnt this week. But it does bear repeating sometimes.

5. And they last almost a minute longer on YouPorn on average.

BRAGGING RIGHTS.

6. They also have different tastes – but not the ones you might expect.

Hitting the high notes for top categories searched more by women than men are “threesome”, “DP” (double penetration) and “orgy”.

Despite all that, “romantic” is also up there. Because there’s nothing quite like a candlelit orgy.

7. Grandad’s into it too.

The largest age demographic to get their rocks off via console are unsurprisingly the 18-24s, but there’s a small percentage of golden oldies who like to plug and play too. Go gramps.

8. PlayStation users last the longest.

Congratulations!

9. PlayStation and Xbox users prefer their porn kept in the family.

Grim.

10. All three games consoles rate highly for lesbian searches.

SURPRISE.

11. Women are searching for granny porn more than men.

Different strokes for different folks…?
