We're Giving Free Access to xHamster Premium for Shutdown Employees
Starting January 4th, we noticed something unusual. Searches of "R Kelly", "R Kelly tape" and other search terms started to surge. It coincides, clearly, with the debut of Lifetime's "Surviving R Kelly" documentary, which details multiple allegations of coercion, assault and sex with under 18s. In fact, in the past week, we saw searches jump 388%.
We feel compelled to put out this statement:
"The R Kelly tape is not on xHamster, nor would we ever allow it to be. Regardless of the news or sens Read more
From Stormy Daniels to SESTA/FOSTA, 2018 was a watershed year for porn. But for all the attention paid — and in some cases, attacks lobbed — consumers are just starting to feel the effects.
What’s coming in porn for 2019? We looked at several year’s worth of data, from traffic to searches, to identify what’s growing (and what’s shrinking) for porn users in the year ahead.
Michelle Obama was recently handed the "Most Admired Woman" award, and the runner ups were: in second, Melania Trump; and in third, Hillary Clinton.
In total xHamster's data shows that during 2018 searches have surged for Michelle Obama and Melania Trump.
Michelle Obama has risen by 380% and Melania Trump has also surged by 201%.
"It looks like xHamster users are admiring Michelle Obama and Melania Trump in other ways as well," said Alex Hawkins, VP of xHamster. "Fantasies are priceless, so here’s to our inner thoughts and kinky feelings!” Read more

xHamster goes in full force with the AI-based anti-spam filter
You ask – xHamster delivers.
As we’ve said earlier, we’re focusing our AI, as well as other tools, on combatting spam.
Today, we are happy to release an AI-based anti-spam filter to help xHamster moderators stop spammers and bots.

Help us out, won’t you?
How it works:
• Any suspicious user or spam-like message will be marked as “spam” in the comments field to your content.
• You and only you will be the one to decide whether a particular user who contacts you is a spam
• Let us — and our AI know — by pressing either “Delete” or “Not Spam” to finalize it
• Our AI will note and use your decision to help block spammers in the future

xHamster users in the US are thawing the turkey, combing through recipes, unbuttoning their pants and preparing for an epic feast. But Thanksgiving affects porn viewing more than you might think! From search terms, to dramatic traffic drops and “family” dramas — even the debate between dressing and stuffing has salty implications!
To help you prepare for the week upcoming, we took a look at Thanksgivings past. Because there’s nothing like good data on warm pie!
Every November, millions of young men renounce masturbation. The data shows it's not just all talk. When we looked at month-to-month traffic to xHamster, October to November, we saw traffic fall an astonishing -14.5%.
At first, we thought that decline might have something to do with Thanksgiving. So, we instead compared the first week of October 2017, with the first week of November 2017 — that way, we can avoid statistical noise like Halloween. Again, the decline held. As we dug deeper into the data, we noticed something else. The decline in traffic wasn't universal. Visits from wome Read more
