Turning Porn into Beautiful Data

Breakdown of female porn stars' hair colors

Gentlemen do not actually prefer blondes.

You know the concept of data analytics has hit the big time when people start analyzing porn. Deep Inside, a fascinating visualization project gave me a laugh, but its findings were also pretty revealing about the culture and science of sex.

These findings made me laugh and think at the same time, which is not often:

  • Even though 32.7% of female porn stars have blonde hair, only 5% of Americans are naturally blonde.
  • A whopping 70.5% of female actresses are Caucasian. What does this say about the audience?
  • 90.5% of adult entertainment is produced in my backyard.
