‘Fleshing out’ Porn Hub’s data

PERCENTAGE-WISE vis-à-vis their male counterparts, Filipino women were the most voracious viewers of pornography among the fairer sex for the whole of 2017 based on the latest data released by the world’s No.1 website dealing with man’s sexual desires, Porn Hub.

Among Filipinos, women comprised 36 percent of the visitors at Porn Hub while males formed 64 percent, setting some kind of a record for Filipinas often characterized as demure and least likely to be watching porn.

But in looking at the table below, it should be said that since the Philippines ranked only 13th overall among countries which had the most visits to Porn Hub, the percentages did not paint an accurate picture.

As the United States led all countries with the most visits to Porn Hub, its female visitors comprising 25 percent of American traffic would pose in absolute number terms a way bigger figure than the 36 percent of Filipina-visitors to Porn Hub.

Okay, I am not lawyering for Filipinas but only pointing out that the percentages are deceiving and that it would best to look at the actual numbers of visitors – males versus females, country by country.

Now, another ignominious data is that the Philippines led all countries with the most time spent at Porn Hub, 13 minutes and 38 seconds. The Philippines leading that category would not be the issue but the category-topping 13 minutes and 38 seconds.

Your guess would be as good as mine as to what people did with the time they spent on Porn Hub, though for whatever comparative purposes it may serve, the clinically validated length of intercourse among males and females ranged only from five to seven minutes.

What that should tell us would be that people spent more time watching porn (and, okay, maybe pleasing themselves) than engaging in actual intercourse with  live, breathing partners.

By definition, intercourse length does not include time spent on foreplay or even kissing, but is the actual time spent by the bees frolicking at the flowers.

Okay, yeah, 5-7 minutes would be so short a time for actual intercourse and, experts have said, the reason why only about 20 percent of women actually experience the “Big O” because women, generally speaking, need more time – certainly way longer than 7 minutes – to be experiencing the big bang.

Porn interaction these days often involved the use of gadgets like cellphones, tablets and computers connected to the Internet – way different decades past when to view porn one has had buy porn magazines or rent so-called “Triple X” videos on Betamax or VHS format.

So, in “fleshing out” the figures, it may be deduced that most men and women spent more time with their gadgets on porn sites than in actually making love with one another. This may be in line with what we know for a fact that in these days  people spent more time texting or sending personal messages via gadgets than actually talking with one another.

Therein would lie the  problem: people now would rather spend time with their gadgets than with actually interacting with other people and, here, we’re not even talking about sex, but the usual scenarios at restaurants where we see people with their noses buried in their cellphones.

There’s a part 2 begging to be written on this topic, including on these tables below:
