Ten things about porn in the USA

1. Canada-based porn site PornHub, one of the three biggest in the world, recently released data showing the top search terms for each state in the United States and the average time spent visiting the site, which ranges from about four minutes (in Rhode Island) to just less than 12 (in Mississippi).

2. It is presumed that what PornHub means by "search term" is a category offered on its site, hence "creampie", "compilation" and "teen", the most favoured search terms on PornHub, overall, in the US. "MILF" (moms I'd like to fuck) and "college" are also high on the list. Many states have both "teen" and "MILF" in their top three. According to Urban Dictionary, "creampie" denotes internal ejaculation, but "the actual creampie or 'proof' is … when the man pulls out and the semen can be seen leeking [sic] out."

3. As a commentator on Gizmodo.com noted, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Maryland, historically among the most racist of US states, have "ebony" as their top search term on PornHub. It is also number one for the District of Columbia and in the top three for the Carolinas.

4.  New York and New Jersey ­are the only two states with "massage" in their top three.

5. Only one state emerges with a porn star's name as its top term: Nevada really likes Anita Queen, a Czech-born porn star with about 40 titles to her name, including Big Titty Lesbians.

6. Only Hawaii has its own state name, "Hawaii", among its top three searches on PornHub.

7.  Montana is the only state to include "wife" and "anal" in its top three terms.

8. Uniquely, Wyoming has ­"smoking" as its top category, with, also uniquely, "BRCC" (back-room casting couch) as its third most-searched term.

9.  Possibly showing they are more advanced than other states, Kentucky and Virginia favour "hentai", Japanese-style animated porn.

10.   Idaho, to its credit, has "­parody" among its top three (though admittedly after "creampie" and "compilation").
