In case you somehow managed to miss this very important bit of news, we’ve just ended Masturbation Month – a month-long celebration of wanking that occurs every May. Hooray!

It was a glorious occasion. We talked about vibrators. We learned how to have better orgasms. Masturbation was discussed in offices and over family dinners (just me? Oh).

But how did Masturbation Month impact actual, well, masturbation?

Turns out it actually had quite an effect on people’s jerking off habits. People love sticking to a theme.

Pornhub has just released its insights for Masturbation Month, and the results are a pretty interesting read – and proof that Masturbation Month is a wonderful thing.

Searches for ‘masturbation’ and ‘jerking off’ increased 3.5% over the month of May, and the average visit duration to Pornhub lasted ten seconds longer than the usual.

Pornhub also shared the masturbation-related searches that increased the most in May. The infographic is probably NSFW if you read out the data aloud, but it’s a pretty intriguing look at what people are enjoying masturbating to in recent times.
