The verdict is out. Ban or no ban, India is watching more porn than ever. In 2015, India knocked out Canada to grab the 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 9 minutes 30 seconds – recorded a higher average time with a one-minute increase in the duration of each visit.

Pornhub received 21.2 billion visits in 2015 – 40,000 visits every minute or 2.4 million per hour. The review noted that 53 percent of the traffic shares were from smartphones alone.
