Twenty years ago, if you were to mention the word “porn” in a social setting, you might have been perceived as “weird” or just plain “crazy.”

Today, with the widespread accessibility of the internet and the pornification of mass media, porn is no longer taboo. In fact, now, it’s completely normalized, and you’re “weird” or “crazy” if you don’t have a porn habit.

Now, all one has to do is sit down at their computer or grab their phone and, with just two clicks, be immersed in an endless world of the most extreme pornographic images/videos in every conceivable genre. No matter the consumer’s age, background, or culture, porn is completely available.

The easy access of porn today is contributing to its rapid spread across the globe. Bottom lineporn is more popular today than ever.

Fight The Status Quo

Billions of Site Visits

Here are just a few stats on the state of porn from the last couple years, according to one of the most popular and largest hardcore porn websites today, Pornhub. All data gathered from their insights site:

Enough porn was watched in 2016 on this one website that all the data would fill 194,000,000 USB sticks. If you put the USB sticks end to end, they’d wrap all the way around the moon.

In 2017 alone, Pornhub got 28.5 BILLION visits. That’s almost 1,000 visits a second, or 78.1 million a day—way more than the population of the entire United Kingdom. That number has since jumped to 33.5 billion site visits in 2018.

In 2016, 91,980,225,000 videos were watched on Pornhub. In 2018, that number jumped to more than 109,012,068,000. That’s over 14 videos watched for every person on the entire planet. 

-Also, more than 5,517,748,800 hours of porn were watched on the site in just 2018. That’s equal to 629,880 years of content consumed in 1 year, on one porn site.

-“Lesbian,” “teen,” “stepmom,” “mom,” and “step sister” have all topped the charts as some of the most searched terms on the site for years.

We don’t share these stats to scare anyone, we share to shine a light on the reality of popular and normalized it is. The numbers don’t lie. And keep in mind, this is just one popular porn site’s stats—there are dozens more free porn tube sites likely with similar metrics.

The Magnitude of Porn

In a study done in 2006 of Norwegians aged 18-49, 82% looked at pornographic magazines, 84% consumed pornographic films, and 34% consumed pornography online. Consider how that study was just one year before the smartphone came out.

In fact, just a few years after that study was done, we can see how much of porn has left the material world and saturated the internet, to hardcore pornographic video-streaming websites. Now, it’s estimated that 90% of children aged 8-16 have seen porn online. Not only that, according to one survey, 70% of kids have said they’ve accidentally encountered porn while doing an online search for homework.

The reality is, we are the first generation in the history of the world to be dealing with this on such a huge scale.

At the time of the study in 2006, 68% of those who consumed porn online were men while women only made up 13.6%. However, times are changing are fast due toyou guessed itinternet porn. In analytics released by popular porn site Pornhub, women are 113% more likely to search the term “hardcore” than men. They are also over 105% more likely to seek out more intense genres of porn like “gangbang” and “rough sex.” (Click here to read an article about why we think that is.)

Not only does the porn industry include both male and female consumers, they have even begun to target children, or at least do less than the absolute minimum to keep kids from accessing pornographic content.

A study done in 2008 found that 93% of boys and 62% of girls had been exposed to pornography in their early adolescent years.

Studies have shown that the average age of a child’s first exposure to porn is around 11 years old. However, we see that that age is rapidly falling with more kids learning how to use phones, tablets, and computers at earlier ages. In 2007, internet security company McAfee did a study on “cybersquatting” and found there is a 1-in-14 chance of a child typing in a misspelled URL and stumbling upon a porn site by accident. That chance has surely gone up as porn has taken over more of the internet.

Consider how there is nothing stopping people from buying domains and creating porn sites, all that porn companies have to do is buy purposely misspelled or seemingly innocent URLs, and anyone can accidentally end up on a hardcore porn site.

Why This Matters

Countless personal accounts have shown that first exposure to pornography on a young, developing brain has the potential to lead to a lifelong toxic habit. Recently, research by security technology company Bitdefender found that kids under the age of 10 now account for 22% of online porn consumption among the under 18 age. And do you know why this is? Because porn is more accessible, anonymous, and affordable than ever before.

Gone are the days where people shoved their Playboy magazines under the mattress—we’ve now in a society where porn is the norm. It’s clear how this shift in society is harming consumers and relationships, so we are doing something about it. Speak up, and speak out that porn isn’t normal, harmless, or healthy.
