Soft lighting? Meaningful gazes? Gentle caresses? If this is what you think women want from sex, we suggest you sit down—you’re in for a shock. What Women Want, a (slightly sub-academic) study recently released by the aptly named hub of all things x-rated, Pornhub, indicates that women’s pornographic interests veer off in a dramatically different direction than the prevailing consensus would have us believe.

The popular idea that women prefer scented candles to “extreme gangbangs” has been dealt a blow by Pornhub and the anonymous data they collected using Google Analytics. It reveals that when it comes to sexy time, women’s interests may be more explicit than you’d assume. And Pornhub’s statistics prove it:

The category “Hardcore” is viewed 113% more frequently by women than it is by men

While women make up less than a quarter of Pornhub’s users worldwide, the site features certain categories that are far more popular with women—only they aren’t the ones you’d assume. The “Rough sex”, “Orgy”, and “Bondage” pages (thanks, E.L. James) are visited by women 106%, 33%, and 91% more often than they are by male users.

The number one category women search for is “Lesbian Porn”

Suddenly Orange is The New Black star Ruby Rose’s popularity among straight-identifying women makes so much sense. Coming in at the number two spot is “Threesome”, followed closely by the innocuous-when-removed-from-this-particular-context term, “Squirt”.

The search term that saw the biggest growth among women: “Real Celebrity Sex Tape”

In the period since Pornhub last analyzed their user data, the search for “Real Celebrity Sex Tape” grew in popularity by 1028%. Exactly how many celebrities are making home movies these days? Guess everyone just wants to direct.

Celeb sex wasn’t the only category to blow up though. Search terms that included the words “hard” and “screaming” together, in one search, for one specific thing that might get you reprimanded at work for reading about, enjoyed a 300% uptick in popularity. “Gentle Sex With A Loving, Committed Partner” didn’t even register on the charts!

And the world’s most popular female porn star is…

Drumroll please! For women, the reigning queen of Pornhub searches is Ms. Break The Internet herself, Kim Kardashian (despite the fact that she hasn’t released any new material in over a decade). In second place is another porn-dabbling reality star: former Teen Mom Farrah Abraham. Leading the pack of male stars is Lindsay Lohan’s one-time castmate (in R, not X-rated cinema) James Deen. 504% more women looked him up than did men.

Per visit, women spend more time looking at porn than men do

This doesn’t mean that the woman in the office next to you looks at x-rated websites all day. (Omg, is she doing it RIGHT NOW?) It means that women, when they do look at pornography, spend more time with it. Pornhub found that their male visitors typically lingered a mere nine minutes and 22 seconds. Female users stayed for nearly a full minute more, with virtual dalliances lasting an average of 10 minutes and 10 seconds. Is it hot in here, or is it just us?

Oh, and the kind of porn we always assumed women preferred? It’s on the decline

Pornhub’s “For Women” category was in fourth place the last time the site checked its data. It’s since slid down in the rankings to eighth place. Who has time for story-driven plots and character development these days anyway? Busy women have exactly 10 minutes and 10 seconds. So save us the soft lighting and string arrangements and lets get straight to the money shot, shall we?
