Pornhub’s annual Star Wars Day surge is as worrying as ever

To mark May 4th 2018, aka Star Wars Day, Pornhub has analysed its users’ Star Wars-related search and viewing trends – and let’s just say it looks like a fair few people are planning to go Han Solo tonight.

Star Wars-related smut searches grow by a staggering 10,430% when May 4 comes around. On Star Wars Day 2017, searches for “lightsaber” (classic) went up by 766%, “star wars sex” (imaginative, but good keywords) grew by 663% and “ashoka tano” (freaky and misspelled) rose to 598%.

(Disclaimer: No, it’s not those kind of toys…)

The chart below features other such delights as the rather painful-sounding “Star Wars anal” and probably-not-as-cute-as-it-sounds “Star Wars cartoon”. Fortunately, there’s nothing about destroying the Death Star.

“Princess Leia” is the current reigning number one Star Wars-related search term for Pornhub users in 2018, with the fun-sounding “Star Wars parody” in second place.

“Rey”, “Oahsoka Tano” and “Twilek” are the most searched for characters behind Princess Leia and coming up the rear is “Kylo Ren”, whose high-waisted bottoms are clearly not doing it for too many Pornhub fans. Disappointingly, there’s not place in the top 22 for Yoda, Darth Vader or even Wookiee nookie.

Pornhub has also found that men are 59% more likely to search for Star Wars-themed porn than women. Perhaps surprisingly, the vast majority of the Star Wars-related searches being made on Pornhub are coming from 18-24-year-olds. As a fairly recent former 24-year-old, I can sit back and shake my head disapprovingly.

To our great pleasure, Pornhub has also gone hardcore with its tech breakdown. On mobile, iOS users are 10% more likely to search for Star Wars-related content than Android users, according to the site.

On desktop, Pornhub says that Windows users are 28% more likely to search for Star Wars porn than Apple Mac OS users. If you know a Windows user, we’d advise keeping away from their keyboard and mouse.
