AWAKENING ‘THE FORCE’

For the past three years, xHamster has experienced an explosion of traffic coming from people searching from Star Wars. At xHamster, we’ve come to call the phenomenon “the Force Awakening!”

So far though, the searches this year have been unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Based on comparison to trends in year’s past, we’re expecting The Last Jedi to explode previous box office records for the franchise.

Like the Resistance, we’re ready for the Dark Side to come. Below, some of our favorite Star Wars-themed cosplay and parody scenes on... Dalej»

A Net Neutrality Explainer — for Porn Fans

You’re a porn fan. Maybe you’re not particularly political. Maybe you hate ALL CAP tweets, petitions, and righteous indignation, and don’t understand why you should waste precious time with your one available hand. Well, dear xHamster fan, net neutrality is the lube by which porn sites live. Kill it, and we’re going to be facing a dry, limp, and painful future.

Below, a quick explainer as to why you need to put down the tissue and fight for net neutrality — with both available hands.

Your Porn Could Be Blocked

2017 Halloween Searches

Yes, all Halloween costumes are now required to be "sexy" ... but not all costumes are created equal. In order to help you to maximize your ghoul-appeal this Halloween, we took a look at the top trends in Halloween searches to see what xHamster users were searching for.

The good news? Halloween is officially sexier than ever. Searches for Halloween themed porn jumped 271% over last year. However, sexy witches are on the rise, while sexy clowns are on the decline this year. So, before you tape any candy corn to your nipples, or put on a barely there mummy wrap, be sure to take a look at our... Dalej»

Social Media Guidelines for Journalists

Social Media Guidelines for Journalists Writing About Porn

Social media plays a vital role in expressing our raunchy, sexual desires. On social platforms, reporters and editors can ogle beautiful breasts, “like” freshly shaved pudendum, flirt with MILFS, and masturbate to freshly cut GIFs.

But social media also presents risks for journalists. Can you accurately report on a transwoman to whom you’ve not only retweeted, but DM’d for customs? If you’ve liked and rubbed one out to a free porn clip, can readers trust you to accurately evaluate Jon Ronson’s Butterfly Effect? If you con... Dalej»

xHamster's College Guide

Dear First Year Students:

We need to have a word with you about sex, and porn. In the past month, we’ve seen a dramatic uptick in visits from college towns, as newly minted 18 year olds, liberated from parental monitoring and ready for adulting, log on to our site.

A 67% increase in new visits from Chapel Hill. A 52% increase at State College. Goooo team!

Not so fast.

It turns out that half of you haven’t had any formal sex education at... Dalej»

Porn in Virtual World

Porn in Virtual World

Nick Fast, CTO of xHamster, found some time in his busy schedule to have a chat on Virtual Reality (VR) and how xHamster is changing the industry with VR projects, starting with XXXReal.com.

Does VR have any chance of growing beyond hardcore geek crowd? The devices are not cheap, and some tech skills are required to get your VR kit up and running.

Many perceive VR as an expensive, exclusive technology, but that’s not exactly true. Thanks to Google Cardboard, all you need to connect is a smartphone and their $10 Cardboard viewer.

Top Search Terms in Westeros

Periodically looking at xHamster data has given us some surprising insight into human sexuality, but could the same be said for White Walkers and Dragons?

In honor of the Game of Thrones finale, we took a look at the top search terms from Westeros, Essos and beyond!

Top Search Terms in Westeros

Porn Eclipse!

Traffic to xHamster Plummets During Eclipse.

Traffic to xHamster went this across the country during today's solar eclipse … but the differences, like our porn preferences, were regional.

Below the percentage drop in traffic for the peak hours of the eclipse:

Nashville: 43%
Charleston: 36%
