America is a sexually liberated country which is why it’s no surprise that so much porn comes from them, but hey, can we blame them?

The data furnished by Pornhub.com, a popular online adult destination, shows data of how Americans view porn including the time they spent on the site, pages per visit, holiday traffic changes, and seasonal satisfaction. Here’s America’s porn statistics:

Time on Site

At 10 minutes and 49 seconds, data shows that Hawaiians like to stick around and spend more time per visit to Pornhub than any other state. Mississippi comes in a close second (10:46), followed by Arkansas (10:33), Alabama (10:24) and South Carolina (10:22). The bottom of their list shows the state of Arizona comes and goes the fastest spending 9 minutes and 12 seconds on their site. Joining the bottom list are Utah (9:21) and Nevada (9:24). This data also shows that the average visit of time on the site across America is 9 minutes and 53 seconds.

Pages Per Visit

When it comes to visiting pages and finding exactly what they want, Hawaii is at number 1 again for the most number of pages visited. That’s 9.93 pages per site visit which is ahead of the country’s average of 9.05 pages.  Arizona is at the bottom list showing visits of 8.69 pages before they find the kind of video they like.

Holiday Traffic Changes

Events and public holidays put a break on porn it seems as there’s a 22% drop in traffic on Christmas, an 18% drop on Thanksgiving and a 14% drop on Independence Day. This is probably caused by lots of travel, family time, celebrations and get-togethers. If you think about it, there’s really not much time to sneak off and spend some precious moments watching porn. But, holiday traffic changes during President’s Day as there’s a 7% jump on porn viewing. Seems like paying respect to the head of state get people back in a sexy mood.

Traffic by Season

There are also changes in porn viewing during the 4 seasons with a tad more traffic in the Spring at 25.32% of the total whilst summer has the least amount of traffic at 24.73%.

Traffic by Month

At 8.73%, January appears to be the favourite month which Americans like to watch porn. Maybe they like to start the year with a bang? It’s followed by March (8.65%) whilst February has the least traffic.
