India gets more ‘incredible’ with third most porn consumption

MONTREAL, Quebec (Web Desk): With a terribly rising rate of rapes in the country, Indians are watching more porn than ever this year.

Ban or no ban, ‘The Land of Kamasutra’ has knocked out Canada to grab third position – after the US and Britain – in visiting one of the world’s largest adult websites Pornhub.

In its annual review of how people around the world watch porn, Pornhub found that while the US added 11 seconds to their average time spent on watching porn, India – at nine minutes 30 seconds – recorded a higher average time with a one-minute increase in the duration of each visit.

“More of our users are opting for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets when they visit Pornhub,” the website noted. The website received 21.2 billion visits in 2015 – 40,000 visits every minute or 2.4 million per hour.

The most famous keyword search among Indians was “Indian, including bhabhi, aunty and teen. Bollywood actor Sunny Leone is the top searched porn star” in India, the review added.

Last year in August, India partially lifted a ban on online pornography after criticism over authorities’ decision to block more than 800 pornographic websites.

In the first large-scale crackdown on the internet in India, the world’s largest democracy, websites were blocked in the first week of August as telecommunications companies began to implement government instructions.

The Department of Communications said the aim was to prevent pornography becoming a social nuisance, but the move immediately prompted a nationwide debate about censorship and freedom.

India has the second-largest number of internet users in the world after China. The country is expected to have more than 500 million internet users by 2017, compared with approximately 350 million now.
