The Xbox 360 and Xbox One managed to win 2014 in at least one category: porn watching. Pornhub reports that Xbox hardware accounted for most of their traffic from gaming consoles.
Pornhub notes that the Xbox community's porn viewing climbed an impressive 70.5% from last year. Xbox gamers were responsible for 45.7% of all PornHub viewing in 2014. I guess Xbox One users are feeling a little liberated now that they don't have a Kinect camera pointed at them.
PS3 and PS4 still account for 40% of porn usage. However, their overall usage down -36.8% from 2013. Again, though, this data is based solely on Pornhub's data. It's possible PlayStation gamers are just relying on a different app. SugarDVD said in the past that their app's very popular among PS4 owners.
The gap between Xbox and PlayStation is narrowed considerably if you include the Vita in the latter's total. Vita owners racked up 5% of the total views. That's nearly five times as much as rival handheld the 3DS. That's surprising, considering the fact that the Vita's total sales are just a fraction of the 3DS'. It's worth keeping in mind, though, that the 3DS' player base is largely made up of kids too young to have the desire to turn their console into a mobile smut command center.
The lower average age of Wii and Wii U users likely accounts for their poor showing, too. They have only 8.2% of PornHub's console usage. Wii gamers are gaining ground, though. Their share of the total traffic is up 69.6% from last year. I'm waiting for a porn producer to start targeting this growing crowd of Nintendo viewers. A Super Smash Bros. porn parody would be easy. I mean, you wouldn't even need to change the name.
Pornhub's data reveals that the PC market's much more one-sided. Windows users made up 83% of desktop traffic to Pornhub. Linux and Mac chipped away at their lead a bit since 2013 but they're still only 2.3% and 11.5% of the total, respectively. As an side note, Pornhub notes that Windows users have a bit of a MILF fixation. Their top two searches were "Lisa Ann" and "mom."
In terms of mobile viewing, Android users rule the day. They were 49.9% of users, with their traffic up 10.9% compared to last year. iOS devices make up the other big chunk with 40.2% of the pie. Pornhub notes that iOS users search for lesbian porn more often than Android users. Android device owners, meanwhile, are more likely to search for cartoon-style porn.
