If you think it's men who are the ones predominantly hitting up sexxxy videos...you'd be right. But there's one sector of women who are watching porn even more often. 

According to a Vocativ and Pornhub study (opens in new tab), women aged 18 to 24 are watching five percent more porn than men aged 18 to 24. It's just further proof that porn—among other things (opens in new tab)—is slowly becoming less taboo. 

Other interesting findings? The average age for men who watch porn is 36 and the average age for women is 34. When it comes to search, hentai and porn stars get the most play among 18-to-34-year-olds, while viewers aged 35 to 54 prefer swinging and wife swapping. And those older than 55? Just give 'em something "nude." Aw, sweet.
