The adult video platform, pornhubpublished the “Pornhub’s 2021 Year in Review“, a list where the most popular search trends of the current year by platform users were compiled.

But around the world it most often describes the pornographic form of anime, a style of Japanese film and television animation. Hundreds of thousands of hentai videos can be found on Pornhub, including professional productions, amateur homemade animations, and 3D generated scenes. “Hentai” became the most popular search term in the world after reaching number one in the United States, Pornhub’s largest audience. Hentai was one of the top ten searches in almost every country in 2021».

Keep going: “Dr. Laurie Betito, a clinical psychologist, sex therapist, and director of Pornhub’s Center for Sexual Wellness, notes that “cartoons are more fantastic than normal porn. They can offer more visual stimulation in terms of movements, angles, colors and facial expressions. Since it is not real, it can go further, with fewer restrictions than reality offers“. Hentai porn also tends to have more of a plot and people seem to be more and more drawn to the context.”».

With “hentai” taking the first position, which categories took the rest? In the order of second place and up, the searches were: “Romance“, “Group Sex (Group Sex)”, “Fitness (Exercise)”, “swappable (Change of Partner)”, “Challenge (Challenges in Trends)”, “transgender (Transgender)”, “gothic (Gothic)”, “roommate (Roommates)” and “How to… (tutorials)”.
