4 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About PornHub

Pornography has become a modern day phenomenon. We all know what it is and what it’s used for. These days, it’s not that much of a big deal because we come across ‘it’ everywhere – one share and the whole world has seen it all.


However, the definition of pornography and an exploration into the world of those who enjoy (or hate) is not why we are here, well at this point. Why we are here is the medium of distribution, which in this case is Pornhub – the king of them all.

Yes, Pornhub is the king of all porn sites. According to Google Trends, Pornhub is one of the top searches in relation to the keywords ‘sex’ and ‘porn’.

If Google Trends says so, then it is so.

Pornhub is not your regular porn site (don’t ask me how I know) for a lot of reasons and we will share with you some of these reasons:

  • 1. Pornhub has a section that provides adequate data from the activities of its users

If you’re looking to do a research on pornographic stats or online sexual interests, you should look up www.pornhub.com/insights. This site contains a storehouse of information about the activities of PornHub users ranging from the most popular search terms, the kind of devices used, what women are searching for and so on.

This section, which began with a blog post on June 20, 2013 focused on how the peak points of the NBA Finals caused Pornbub users to leave its the porn site.

Insights like this may sound nonsensical to you but they will be surely useful to the organizers of NBA 2013 Playoffs.

  • 2. Pornhub owns a clothing line and an online store.

The top rated porn site owns a clothing line called Pornhub Apparel and you can easily find them on the online store, store.pornhub.com/#.

The line features simple men’s t-shirts, women’s tank tops and snapbacks. According to Bustle, Pornhub Apparel is the way to go if you’ve been searching for a way to broadcast your sex-positivity to the world though fashion, while keeping your nipples safely inside the ride at all times.

  • 3. Pornhub owns a record label.

Pornhub launched Pornhub record label on September 24, 2014. The company’s Head of PR and marketing, Matt Blake told Billboard:

“We’ve always seen a strong music presence from the beginning of Pornhub. Artists upload their own stuff, like uncensored tracks and R-rated versions of songs. Some people come in and upload exclusive videos, so it creates a buzz for them.”

“We’re looking for acts that aren’t necessarily porn-focused,” says Price. “We’re an ad-based network looking for content that appeals to our demographic. Mature lyrics for an adult audience; no boy bands or teen-pop, for instance.”

  • 4. Pornhub is also into wearable tech.

The Wankband, which came out sometime in March 2015, got a lot of buzz. The device described as an innovation that allows you love the world while you’re loving yourself is the funniest of wearable techs as it advocates masturbation as a way of generating energy. LOL. Watch the ad below:

As much as pornography is big business, Pornhub did not constrain itself to the creation and distribution of erotic acts.


This is a good lesson for us all.

Being a thought leader in your field is everything.
