Oops, it looks like Hentai is really popular with Malaysians, according to a heatmap from Pornhub.

Hentai, which is a highly sexualised subgenre of Japanese anime and manga (well, basically its own genre of porn at this point) turns out to be the world’s eight most popular porn search item last year, with it being one of the top porn search terms among Malaysians.

The data comes from Pornhub’s annual report (yes they have one of those!) and while it doesn’t specifically pinpoint Malaysia, it’s more of a graphical representation of data.

Hentai is often searched up by the 18-24 age group, being the fourth most searched. As for the worldwide audience, the most popular search terms are lesbian, followed by step mom and MILF, with an average of 26% visitors being female.

Hentai also trended well in the Asian region, particularly so in China, Thailand, Japan (well, duh) and the Phillipines.

Interestingly, VR porn is also on the rise in popularity, with 360 VR, 360 Degree, VR Hentai and shemale VR being popular search terms for China, Thailand and Hong Kong as well. We can’t quite imagine watching your porn on your Google Cardboard, but we suppose it would have happened eventually.

Why do you suppose Malaysians like their Hentai so much? let us know in the comments!
