You may be surprised by what makes the list

It's that time of the year again -- Pornhub has just released the biggest searches for the past 12 months, with a spike in a specific category over the others.

The Canadian-owned internet pornography video-sharing website is one of the most popular for adult entertainment, and one of the most visited websites in the world.

Launched in 2007, the platform yearly makes public data about what make their audience tick. As 2023 is drawing to a close, the website has looked back at the recent months, sharing what the NSFW content their users like to watch.
