Who Uses Sex.com More? Men or Women?
It’s been a whole year since our team of skilled individuals transformed Sex.com from a shitty site with tons of banners and internet garbage to a legitimate free porn site with millions of amazing sexy pictures and free adult movies and possibly the best sex blog ever written.
Though there are a lot of imitators, Sex.com is the only site for pinning porn videos and pictures. But after a year there is a question I’d like to ask all our users and the people visit Sex.com that haven’t yet made account (which by the way, accounts are free and if you don’t have an account you’re not using Sex.com to its full potential so click here to make one).
If you’ve been on the main page of Sex.com, you probably have noticed some similarities with Pinterest. That’s because Sex.com is Pinterest for porn (even though we all know that Pinterest has tons of porn on it).
Pinterest basically is scrapbooking internet content. When you see something you like, you pin it, repin it or like it to preserve it. Unless it’s a viral sensation, internet content can be hard to find again, which is why pinning is great. It’s an easy way to save and access things you like from anywhere in the world. Plus it’s shared with an online community that either give you approval for having great taste.
I must admit, when I first saw Sex.com using the same pin and board interface as Pinterest, I wasn’t sold on the idea. My reaction something like, “Pinterest is stupid so this is stupid as well.”
But when I started pinning pictures and videos, I realized how good it was for internet porn. There’s a lot of porn on the internet. Like a lot of porn. There’s so much internet porn that you can’t even begin to speculate how much there is. So equipped with Sex.com‘s Pin It button, browsing internet porn became less of a transient experience. I could now organize the sexy pictures and adult movies I liked in a way that I saw fit without ever having to worry about how I was going to find a certain picture or video. It also keeps all that porn off my hard drive so no one will find it and ask me, “What’s up with all this porn on your hard drive?”
The key to Pinterest‘s success is its female user-ship. Just look at this infographic of Pinterest users:
The important figure is the gender breakdown:
Why is Pinterest so much more popular with women than men? Well that’s because pinning/scrapbooking appeals to a female sensibility of nesting. Though it may sound sexist coming from me a porn addicted pervert, I’ll let Jerry Seinfeld explain this theory in a way that’s much funnier and doesn’t sound as sexist:
Even though Jerry is talking about TV, the same principle can be applied to surfing the internet for cool content.
Last year, a French survey on porn was conducted and they found that 80% of the women they interviewed watched porn even though most people will tell you that it’s only men who watch porn.
Because our site is based off a system that mostly appeals to women and the content traditionally appeals to men, I’ve been wondering after a year of Sex.com, who uses Sex.com more, men or women? Is Sex.com‘s pin and board style finally attracting a strong female audience to porn? Or have men learned to nest with the content that they find, debunking Jerry Seinfeld‘s theory?
So the question I’d like to ask all our users and casual visitors is:
Are you a man or a woman?
