A gaming console is essentially just a computer that you can connect to the Internet, so — of course — people use their systems to watch pornography. One of the bigger sites on the Web for that kind of content is sharing details for how gamers get down with their PlayStations, Xboxes, and Wii devices.

YouPorn, a massively popular site for adult entertainment, has illuminated the habits of gamers who use their consoles to access its site. Gamers represent around 200,000 of the 20 million who visit YouPorn daily, and the company has quantified which of the three consoles generates the most traffic and the categories of porn the gamers on each system prefer. While this might seem like inconsequential data, it does reveal how people consume media other than games on their consoles. And that is something that Microsoft and Sony have both tried to emphasize about their systems.

“More and more of our users are leveling up and accessing the site through gaming consoles like the Wii, Xbox, and PlayStation,” reads a blog post that YouPorn shared early with GamesBeat. “And each subset of users score very differently when they log on to the site.”

YouPorn notes that PlayStation systems are responsible for the majority of its console-based traffic. Sony gamers are on YouPorn more than the Xbox and Wii systems combined, with 51 percent of the total traffic compared to 39 percent for Xbox and 10 percent for Wii.

Of course, the differences between gamers on Sony consoles and the other systems is not just in the amount of porn consumption.

“Each of these user subsets also have their own distinct tastes and preferences, as well as very particular ways of interacting with YouPorn,” reads the YouPorn blog.

YouPorn’s data reveals that Xbox gamers prefer lesbian porn, Sony players prefer “MILF” movies, and Nintendo fans rock it the most to Japanese cartoons.

YouPorn also pointed out that while the majority of people who use their consoles to view adult content are men, women also enjoy the pastime as well. On the gaming systems, women make up 8.5 percent of the total traffic. That’s compared to YouPorn’s total traffic across all devices, which is about 26 percent women.

“Interestingly, the highest proportion of female users is found among Wii players, where they constitute 11 percent of traffic originating from the console to YouPorn,” reads the company’s blog.

Finally, YouPorn revealed a map that shows where each system is most popular among YouPorn viewers. Xbox consoles dominated in the United States and Mexico. Wii and Wii U are No. 1 in many Southeast Asian countries. And PlayStation is the top just about everywhere else in the world.
