Oh, The Irony: Can You Guess The Most Common Word In Porn Site Comments?

At the end of every year, companies and organizations typically release an annual report that details what happened in the last 365 days. These reports usually contain numbers, statistics, charts, figures, and breakdowns of the past year, and then what the company projects for the upcoming year.

Unfortunately, giant porn websites have become no different. In their effort to normalize their toxic product in society, Pornhub collects detailed analytics from their site and releases a “year in review” containing all the information. But instead of talking about annual goals, charities supported, or environmental contributions, PornHub reports on things like “Favorite Porn Star,” “Most Popular Search Terms,” and “Average Time Spent Per Visit.”

If you hadn’t seen them yet, Pornhub’s 2017 year in review numbers shows the extreme growth that the epidemic of pornography is currently experiencing (i.e over 28.5 billion visits last year to the site) and the money-making machine that basically celebrates in making this harmful problem in society even worse.

Check out just some of the stats:

Now, as shocking as all that information is, want to know which one we found most interesting from past reports?

Just a few years ago, Pornhub used to catalog the most common comments under videos on the site. We’re guessing they stopped sharing this info because it definitely didn’t make them look good as a company, but they shared this little tidbit in 2014, and we never forgot it. Take a look at the most common word in comments on hardcore pornographic videos:

And again in 2015:

Wow.

Now, how ironic is that? And we’d venture to guess that “love” is still one of the more popular in 2018, too.

The Irony

How ironic is it that one of the main places that you can get the furthest from real love is where that word pops up the most in people’s online conversations about sexual objectification on the most humiliating and degrading content imaginable? Now, granted, we realize that the word is probably being used in a much different way than we should associate “love” with, but does that make it acceptable? Does it make it okay that this word, which is meant to be used to describe selfless devotion, is now the most common word on a site that shows nothing but toxic relationships and pain?

We don’t think so.

We know that real love is something that should be cherished, valued, and not cheapened by fake imitations like porn. And it’s possible that these consumers are looking to experience feelings of love or connection, which is why they turn to porn performers as an easy, effort-free substitute. But ultimately, there is no long-lasting satisfaction to be found on sites that sexually exploit humans for profit, and feelings of loneliness can only be compounded by the isolation porn drives consumers into.

Watching just isn’t worth it, and porn is nothing compared to real love. We invite anyone looking for love to disconnect from harmful fantasy and connect to meaningful reality.

And maybe if this image below was the message getting 28.5 billion views per year, society would be in a more healthy place:
