Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Porn: It’s something we all watch. Your friend, your coworkers, your girlfriend, your boss, even the sweet old lady who used to babysit you as a child.

There’s no getting away from it: We love our pornography.

So much so, in fact, that porn accounts for more web traffic that Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Twitter combined.



Sure, you love watching it and using porn apps for hookups. But do you know everything about it?

Before you consider yourself an expert on the subject, make sure to check out these 15 crazy, unbelievable facts about porn.

1. Porn Accounts For 35% of All Web Traffic

You already knew that porn is popular. If we’re being honest, that’s nothing new. Porn has been popular for as long as people have been able to draw.

But did you know that it’s so popular it makes up over 1/3 of all web traffic?

According to The Chive and its statistics on pornography, the exact figure comes out to be around 35% of all web traffic. For reference, over 4 billion people have access to the Internet.

Going by the numbers, that means that the person on the bus across from you might be staring at hardcore pornography. Try not to make eye contact.

2. Some Prefer to Keep It All in the Family

From stepmoms and stepdads to, yes, brothers and sisters, the world seems to have an odd fascination with incest.

If you don’t believe us, here’s a small experiment. Head to one of your favorite porn sites like Pornhub or Brazzers.

Now, check out the top-watched videos. Chances are at least a few of them will have something to do with incest. In fact, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising to find out that all of the top-featured videos are of fictionalized incest.

So what gives?

Some experts suggest that it has little to do with the actual idea of fornicating with family, and more to do with the taboo surrounding the idea. In fact, they point out that the taboo isn’t even new, tracing it back to the Bible.

Rest assured, your fetish doesn’t mean you have the hots for your cousin.

3. Porn Isn’t Just For The Guys

While the audience for porn undoubtedly skews in favor of men, that isn’t to say that plenty of women don’t get off on hot pics or videos.

With that said, since most porn is designed with horny guys in mind, it can be tough for the ladies to find some quality entertainment.

That’s where AbbyWinters comes in.

Based in Amsterdam, AbbyWinters is dedicated to bringing the joy of the female orgasm to, well, females.

The company touts its female-first approach in a number of ways. For instance, they insist that all on-screen orgasms are 100% natural. In addition, they let women cum as they are, encouraging women to embrace a natural look.

4. There’s More to Porn Than Photos and Videos

While most of the world’s porn consumption comes from photos and videos, technology is advanced enough that a new market will soon erect its place among its predecessors.

Welcome to the wild world of video game pornography.

Now, gamers don’t have to watch the action — they can be a part of it.

Popular sites like Patreon have tons of great adult games that players can back, ranging a wide spectrum of fetishes.

So get ready to grab your joystick and plug-in with these awesome new adult games.

5. One of the Biggest Sources of Porn Isn’t a Porn Site

Wikipedia is one of the world’s most-browsed sites and can be a great source of information. But its counterpart, Wikimedia Commons, is actually one of the world’s largest sources of pornography.

Provided that an image or video has a free license, a user can put anything on the site.

As a result, Commons is a veritable porn museum!

Users can browse through thousands of pornographic images and videos spanning centuries.

Truth be told, it’s more fascinating that it is titillating. While there are plenty of modern videos of masturbation and various sex acts, there are also some wonderful examples of drawings and early photography.

6. Ted Cruz’s Peculiar Pornographic Past

While politician Ted Cruz is no porn star (thank god), the Texas senator has a rather strange history with adult entertainment.

It all stems back to 2016 when Cruz featured adult entertainment star Amy Lindsay in a campaign video. Cruz and his staffers swear up and down that they had no clue that the actress was involved in the porn industry and took the video down hours later.

That wasn’t the end of the story, however.

Some months later, Cruz’s love of porn once again made headlines. This time thanks to a “liked” tweet of some seriously hardcore pornography.

Cruz insisted the “liked” tweet was the result of a fellow staff member and placed the blame elsewhere, claiming a staff member on his cabinet had access to his Twitter account.

And they say porn is a dirty industry.

7. VIP Treatment

If you’re a fan of Naughty America, you’re likely familiar with Jaclyn Case. The hot young actress took the site and industry by storm in a few short months.

And yet, as quickly as she came (eh?), she was gone.

So what was the reason for Ms. Case’s sudden departure? She was fired for reportedly offering customers private dates, including sexual favors.

Regular browsers of our site will know that we think this was a huge mistake. As long as both parties are willing to engage, there’s nothing wrong with hiring an escort for the evening.

8. Unsung Heroes of the Industry

While we at Red Light Vegas love our porn stars, certain heroes on set deserve more credit than they get.

Today, we salute you, fluffers!

For the unfamiliar, a fluffer is a hybrid cast and crew member. While they’re not technically part of either, they play an integral role in both.

Their entire purpose is to get male stars to rise to the occasion in between takes.

According to Vivid Entertainment’s GlassDoor profile, a fluffer can make between $42,000 and $45,000 per year.

9. A New Reality

Looking at porn is hot, but it isn’t as engaging as the real thing. Thankfully, there’s a middle step in virtual reality.

The porn industry is banking on fully-immersive, 360-degree videos as its next source of revenue.

And with headsets, like the Oculus Go or Google Cardboard becoming more affordable and VR porn sites popping up every day, we’re inclined to agree.

So if you’re tired of experiencing porn in the same old way, consider investing in a headset and a Fleshlight. You’ll get to experience your favorite porn stars as if they were right next to you.

10. 50 Shades of Grey is The Bestselling Book Ever in Britain

Though 50 Shades of Grey’s prose may leave a lot to be desired, it’s hard to argue with the sales figures.

E.L. James’ BDSM-flavored book is such a hit that it’s now the top-selling book of all time in Britain, selling more than 5.3 million copies.

11. Good, Clean Entertainment

There are a ton of misconceptions about the porn industry. Chief among them is the safety of the industry’s performers.

While plenty of amateur sites feature bareback encounters, you won’t find such a thing in any Los Angeles-produced porn.

In fact, safety is such a big issue that the city passed Measure B, legislation requiring the use of condoms, in 2012.

12. The World’s Biggest Gangbang

Everyone likes a little group activity from time to time. But what if you and 918 strangers took turns having with one of the world’s hottest porn actresses?

It may sound like a bizarre fantasy, but that’s exactly what went down at Eroticon in 2004.

Adult actress Lisa Sparxxx and her 919 buddies made history by participating in the world’s biggest gang bang.

As they say, the more the merrier.

13. Going The Distance

A lot of people may watch porn, but how long does the average session last?

According to Bustle, the average American’s porn-watching session lasts around 10 minutes and 15 seconds.

Mississippi managed to beat out the rest lasting 11 minutes and 08 seconds, while Oregon’s sessions were the briefest, only lasting 9 minutes and 27 seconds.

14. The Queen of Porn Still Reigns

It may seem strange to mention Jenna Jameson these days. Though the Queen of Porn is, indeed, done appearing on camera for the foreseeable future, that doesn’t mean she’s stopped earning.

Her residuals and work in the industry still earn her an estimated $30 million per year! From toys to books to media appearances, she’s still killing it.

15. Stocking Stuffers

As popular as porn is, most people need to take a day off every now and again. But as research has found, most Americans take off the same day: Christmas.

The holiday is reportedly the day in which the fewest number of people browsed porn sites and was closely followed by Thanksgiving.
