2017 Halloween Searches

Yes, all Halloween costumes are now required to be "sexy" ... but not all costumes are created equal. In order to help you to maximize your ghoul-appeal this Halloween, we took a look at the top trends in Halloween searches to see what xHamster users were searching for.

The good news? Halloween is officially sexier than ever. Searches for Halloween themed porn jumped 271% over last year. However, sexy witches are on the rise, while sexy clowns are on the decline this year. So, before you tape any candy corn to your nipples, or put on a barely there mummy wrap, be sure to take a look at our... Continua»

Social Media Guidelines for Journalists

Social Media Guidelines for Journalists Writing About Porn

Social media plays a vital role in expressing our raunchy, sexual desires. On social platforms, reporters and editors can ogle beautiful breasts, “like” freshly shaved pudendum, flirt with MILFS, and masturbate to freshly cut GIFs.

But social media also presents risks for journalists. Can you accurately report on a transwoman to whom you’ve not only retweeted, but DM’d for customs? If you’ve liked and rubbed one out to a free porn clip, can readers trust you to accurately evaluate Jon Ronson’s Butterfly Effect? If you con... Continua»

xHamster Releases AI Face Recognition

xHamster will be the first adult company to offer users a fully functional AI video face recognition, using facial and hair colour recognition technology to find videos featuring their favorite stars.

xHamster's College Guide

Dear First Year Students:

We need to have a word with you about sex, and porn. In the past month, we’ve seen a dramatic uptick in visits from college towns, as newly minted 18 year olds, liberated from parental monitoring and ready for adulting, log on to our site.

Not so fast.

Porn in Virtual World

Porn in Virtual World

Nick Fast, CTO of xHamster, found some time in his busy schedule to have a chat on Virtual Reality (VR) and how xHamster is changing the industry with VR projects, starting with XXXReal.com.

Does VR have any chance of growing beyond hardcore geek crowd? The devices are not cheap, and some tech skills are required to get your VR kit up and running.

Many perceive VR as an expensive, exclusive technology, but that’s not exactly true. Thanks to Google Cardboard, all you need to connect is a smartphone and their $10 Cardboard viewer.
We’ve even made our... Continua»

Meet xHamster X!

The iPhone isn’t the only tech innovation celebrating it’s ten year anniversary today — it’s xHamster’s anniversary as well. And like our friends in Cupertino, we’re celebrating our anniversary with the launch of our ground-breaking redesign. Introducing the xHamster X: clean, elegant, and designed with your happiness in mind.

We may not have a keynote speaker or a media tent or facial recognition technology — after all we’re already pretty adept at recognizing facials here — but we do have a video that will help introduce the world to the new, endlessly adaptable xHamster.

Porn Eclipse!

Traffic to xHamster Plummets During Eclipse.

Traffic to xHamster went this across the country during today's solar eclipse … but the differences, like our porn preferences, were regional.

Below the percentage drop in traffic for the peak hours of the eclipse:

Nashville: 43%
Charleston: 36%

We Offer Sean Spicer a Four-Year Porn Contract

xHamster is pleased to offer former White House Spokesperson an unprecedented $179,700 a year for a recurring role in their upcoming Trump parody series — matching his salary at the Trump White House.

“It’s hard to find someone so talented at repeating scripted, nonsensical lines,” says Alex Hawkins, VP of xHamster. “When we saw that Sean was no longer working for the White House, we knew we had to have him. We don’t know what he’s hiding under that ill-fitting suit, we’re willing to take the chance.”

Why We’re Still Opposing the Digital Economy Act

In April, the United Kingdom began the process of implementing the 2017 Digital Economy Act, a wide-ranging act that will require porn fans in the UK to register in a special database if they want to access sites like xHamster.

The Digital Economy Act has a laudable goal — to prevent minors from accessing adult content. Unfortunately, the way they are doing it puts millions of adult visitors at risk of shame, embarrassment and real harm.

xHamster Joins Fight for Net Neutrality

xHamster will participate in today’s Internet-Wide Day of Action to Save Net Neutrality an effort to oppose the FCC’s plan to slash Title II, the legal foundation for net neutrality rules that protect online free speech.

“Without Net Neutrality twenty years ago, we wouldn’t even have an adult internet,” said Alex Hawkins, VP of xHamster. “And without adult internet, we wouldn’t have ANY internet. After all, porn is the only reason most people bothered to get an internet connection in the first place!”
