Ban or no ban on porn websites, India has remained as one of the top porn watching nations in the world. It has now moved ahead of Canada, to  become the third largest porn watching population.

According to a report released by Pornhub, a leading adult website, India only trails the United States and the United Kingdom in this regard. Besides Canada, it has also pulled ahead of countries like Germany, France and Australia.

The Pornhub report notes that the media age of  porn consumers in India was 22 as compared to the world average of 29. “In countries like India and the Philippines which have median ages that are lower than the world average (22 and 27, compared to 29 worldwide), there are much higher proportions of younger viewers,” it said.

About 30% of the porn-watching population in India constituted women and as for demographics, a majority of the porn watchers in the country were aged between 18 and 24. India also ranked fourth (behind Philippines, US and Australia) as far as ‘duration’ of a visit was concerned (9.30 minutes per visit).

Porn movie star Sunny Leone, who now acts in Bollywood movies was the actress most searched by Indians. Even in 2014, she had topped the chart.

Pornhub says that people around the globe watched a total of 88 billion videos  in 2015, taking the total porn watching to a whopping 4 billion hours. This translates into roughly 12 videos viewed per person on the planet, and on an average around 6,700 videos were watched every second.

In August last year, the Indian government  had ordered internet service providers to block 857 websites hosting pornographic content. Following public outrage on the issue, the Ministry revoked the ban and issued a clarification saying they asked the service providers to block access only to those sites which have child pornographic content.
