According to a new report from SimilarWeb, we really like watching porn on our phones and tablets — even more than we like watching movies.

For the fist time, SimilarWeb has included mobile devices in its ranking of most popular websites. Due to that timely inclusion, Pornhub now ranks as the 23rd most popular website in the world.

Mobile porn stimulates impressive growth

The inclusion of mobile traffic helped Pornhub jump 15 spots in these rankings. It’s now officially more popular than eBay, Netflix, MSN, Bing, Tumblr, Reddit, Craigslist, Pinterest, LinkedIn and various regional Google portals.

Pornhub says since 2010, traffic from mobile has increased 1,424 percent (nope, not a typo). The company says “more of Pornhub’s 60+ million daily visitors get off on-the-go using their smartphones than all other platforms combined.”

Impressive growth, but not quite the biggest porn site in the study. Xvideos ranks 18th in the study, up six spots thanks to mobile traffic. Both sites (along with a few other porn portals) saw the most growth when factoring in mobile devices, proving we’d rather get down with ourselves on the down-low. From SimilarWeb:

The biggest beneficiaries of the move to combine both mobile web and desktop visits are adult sites, with 11 porn sites now in the top 300 most popular sites globally. PornHub, attracting 1.1 billion visits a month globally, sees a staggering 54% of its visits from mobile phones, with an average user session lasting about 8 ½ minutes. It rose from 38th place to 23rd, a higher position than online titans such as eBay, MSN and Netflix.

Overall, the world’s biggest porn site is xvideos.com, a site that attracts 60% of its total visits from mobile devices. In the new rankings, the site jumps to 18th overall and has a global visit duration of 10 minutes 49 seconds. The site, attracting 1.5 billion worldwide combined visits, saw its traffic and page-views beat that of Google Japan, Google Germany, and Google Russia.

Other online porn destinations that made SimilarWeb’s list of the top 300 most popular sites are XHamster (37), Xnxx.com (41), Red Tube (87), YouPorn (107) Chaturbate (117), Tube8 (233), Spankbang.com (246), Bongacams (251) and Youjizz (287).

Hey — 8.5 minutes; not bad, everyone! But if you guys can keep it up, you’ll push Pornhub past Google’s Russian, Japanese, Dutch and French portals in no time.
