PS4 Gamers Are Way More Likely to Watch Porn Than Xbox One Owners

In gaming, not all porn is created equal.

When I was growing up, my sister imparted some solid wisdom: "All men watch porn and play video games. There's no way around it." Little did she know that in the 21st century, people would be watching porn on their video games. SugarDVD, which touts itself as the "Netflix of porn," is the only porn web app that works on both PS4 and XBox One consoles, which means, it has proprietary information about the masturbation habits of the latest gamers. The December 2013 data found that PS4 owners are three times more likely to have signed up for SugarDVD than Xbox One owners. (See, it's right there in the name. 4 as opposed to One.)

Though PS4 is generally the favored device, it isn't enough to explain the wide disparity between the purchasing stats. The results stumped the SugarDVD execs. As BuzzFeed's Joseph Bertstein points out, "the Xbox One is the console more clearly designed with the web browsing in mind, from the voice controlled browser to motion controls that are designed to eventually support device-free browsing."

One reason could be that Xbox One just seems more family-friendly, but don't forget it also has a disturbingly omnipresent camera and motion tracking device attached to it. Maybe choking the chicken in front of Big Brother is a little too eerie for some Xbox devotees. Another reason, as Gizmodo points out,  could be that Xbox users are notoriously better at real-life sexual encounters than other console fanatics. But it might also be that Xbox users are passing off SugarDVD in favor of creating their own homemade Kinect sex tapes. (One could always hope because 3D porn is amazing). 

It would seem the divide between PS4 and Xbox One is pretty consistent throughout all user tastes. The top three porn categories for PS4? All girl, black, and amateur. Xbox One users prefer anal, college, and MILF porn. At least there's something for everyone to enjoy.
