xHamster Reveals Valentine's Sex Study Data

LOS ANGELES — xHamster has revealed the results of its Valentine’s Sex Study, a global study of search data showing that traditional “missionary” sex is the most searched for sex position, followed by the female-dominant “Amazon” position.

According to the company, the three-year porn searches study was done both internally by xHamster along with additional data on Google searches by SEMrush, an online visibility management tool.

“For Valentine’s Day, we wanted to offer some actionable advice for lovers,” xHamster VP Alex Hawkins said. “We see more and more consumers interested in equitable sexual practices, rather than one that favors men. We’re particularly encouraged by the dramatic rise of interest in the ‘Amazon’ position, which gives women greater control.”

Hawkins revealed that among U.S. Google searches, the most searched for sex positions were:

  1. Missionary
  2. Amazon
  3. Cowgirl
  4. Eiffel Tower
  5. Doggy Style
  6. Piledriver
  7. Butterfly
  8. Reverse Cowgirl
  9. Spooning
  10. Wheelbarrow

While among U.S. porn users, the most searched for positions were:

  1. Missionary
  2. Cowgirl
  3. Doggy Style
  4. Reverse Cowgirl
  5. Chair
  6. Amazon
  7. Scissors
  8. Cowboy
  9. Butterfly
  10. Spooning

Hawkins also noted that despite heavy rotation in porn, consumer interest in anal sex has fallen dramatically over the past three years.

“We are seeing a global decline in interest for more aggressive sex acts,” Hawkins added. “This may have to do with a return to a more conservative culture, or merely a return to the mean after ‘50 Shades,’ but consumer interest in BDSM, anal sex and other fetish sex has flagged in the past few years.”

The survey also looked at global searches for sex information, both through Google and on porn sites, with xHamster sharing the graphs and data on its blog.
