Hello, readers! In today's edition of "I didn't need to know this but now I do, so you have to as well" we're talking about the pornography viewing habits of North Koreans.

Now, I know what you're thinking - porn is banned in North Korea, right? And you'd be right. But as the saying goes, life finds a way - and nothing can hide from Google Analytics for long.

There have only been a few thousand visitors to Pornhub in North Korea over the last couple of years, but that's still enough to make some graphs filled with too much information for this time of day (which is any time of day).

Behold, the things you were always curious about but didn't realise until this exact moment:

The most searched for terms from North Korea include many different nationalities including “Chinese”, “Mongolian”, “Japanese”, “Korean”, “Swedish” and “Indonesian”.

The most viewed categories of porn include Japanese, Asian, Big Tits and Cartoon. The Korean category falls into ninth spot. Most other countries we have studied tend to search for and view porn featuring their fellow citizens more than any other type, so this may support the idea that searches in North Korea are coming from foreign visitors to the country.

While the tablet proportion of traffic (11%) is consistent with most other parts of the world, North Korea’s smartphone traffic (36%) is much smaller than elsewhere, and desktop/laptop traffic still accounts for more than half of all visits. Worldwide, mobile devices account for more than 75% of all traffic to Pornhub.

Worldwide, Google’s Chrome browser makes up 51% of all traffic coming to Pornhub, but in North Korea it’s much less at 32%. Much of that difference is made up with Apple’s Safari browser, accounting for 32% in North Korea but only 9% elsewhere in the world.

Worldwide traffic from iPhone and Android mobile devices is roughly equal (with Android slightly in the lead), but in North Korea Apple devices are 2.5x more popular than Android. Desktop traffic from MacOS accounts for a larger proportion of traffic in North Korea compared to worldwide, where most people are still using Windows based computers.


I'm sure this information has greatly enriched your life, as it has mine.

Thanks, Pornhub.

    This article is pointless for three glaringly obvious reasons.
    But first and foremost because it fails to state that the slaves (general population) of North Korea are unable to access the internet.
    1/ Internet access is ILLEGAL to the general population.
    2/ Infrastructure for the public does not exist.
    3/ They are unable to purchase devices to access the internet.
    The internet in North Korea is strictly prohibited to Government, tourists and restricted access for 'educational' facilities (which are actually indoctrination camps).
