Pornhub reveals which Kiwi region watches the most porn

News 17/07/2019

The numbers are in!

Pornographic site Pornhub has released a snapshot of NZ's viewing habits, with statistics revealing what we watch and how long we watch it for.

Gisborne has retained the top spot, with those on the East Coast spending a lengthy average of 11 minutes and 16 seconds on the site per visit.

Tasman was three seconds back in second. Followed by Northland, Hawke's Bay and Taranaki to round out the top five, all spending at least 10 seconds longer than the average Kiwi visit of 10 minutes and 30 seconds.

It looks like those in New Zealand's biggest cities didn't have much time to wait, coming and going in some of the quickest times. Auckland and Wellington were tied on 10 minutes and 29 seconds.

Those in Dunedin made quick work of things with an average time of 9 minutes and 59 seconds spent on the site.

The site also reported on the proportion of gay (male) content being watched in New Zealand which made up 4.25% of total views, less than the global average of 6.03%. Gisborne took top spot again in this category, watching 36% more gay porn than the average Kiwi.

Those low numbers could be due to the high number of female porn viewers in NZ, with Pornhub's stats showing that nearly 40% of Kiwi porn viewers are women, well ahead of the global average of 26%. 

We are all quite old school when it comes to how we're watching porn. Most of Pornhub's traffic comes from mobile devices (80% globally), but Kiwis still prefer a laptop or desktop experience with 66% using computers.
