The Bush is Back!

Every one has their preference when it comes to hair. Especially the hair from body parts unknown. Some like to keep an 80s vibe going on, others run a tight ship and have no time for furry business. Then there are those who prefer a well kept landing strip, trimmed initial or some other funky design. Redtube did some research to see if the bush is really back, or if it’s just another fad. 

As we get older it seems we become more particular about whether we have bush or no bush. Of all age groups, users 65 years + are 258% as likely to search for “Bush” as they are to search for “shaved”. Our users aged 18-34 are much less likely to search for either term. Seems as though porn preferences are not dictated by whether or not the pornstar is “Bushy” or “Shaved” for our millennial-aged users, but that bush makes all the difference once you’ve hit senior citizen status. It is also clear that among every age group, “bush” is more popular by a long shot. It is more popular among 18-24 years old by 891% and 982% more popular among 25-34 year olds. For 35-44 year old it is 1126% more popular and 1147% among those 65+.   

 

 

Ever wondered which search terms are most often combined with each type? We’ve got you covered. On the bushy side of things, “hairy pussy”, “hairy teen (18+)” & “hairy MILF” all made the top 5. While “hairy ginger” and “bush” closed out the list. Moving on to terms most searched for combined with “shaved”, first up have “shaving hairy pussy”. The word “shaved” on it’s own was 2nd and “shaved milf” fell into 3rd most popular.

We took a deeper dive into the preferences among US viewers. The heat map below shows “bushy” is searched for much more among Central and Western states than the rest of the country. “Bushy” search terms are more popular in states like Colorado (+98%), Texas (+76%) and Utah (+86%). While North Eastern states like New York and Vermont don’t need the extra layer to stay warm in the winter, opting for hairless instead.

We can also clearly see how over the last year, the trend is moving more and more towards the “Bush”. In May 2016 searches were below average, and although there was a dip in February of 2017, you can see it that over the last few months the bush is back on the rise.

Vanessa Grimaldi Will Win ‘The Bachelor’

Just last week we asked our viewers to help us predict who would win Nick Viall’s heart in this season of ABC’s hit show, ‘The Bachelor’. By now we know that it’s down to the final two and already RedTube viewers are making us proud. After reviewing the poll results on Monday morning, Redtube viewers knew that only hours later, we’d all watch Viall break Rachel’s heart as he handed the first of two roses to Raven, and the second to Vanessa. Although it’s no surprise Rachel was eliminated– host Chris Harrison spilled the beans back in February that she would be next season’s ‘Bachelorette’ so would have happened sooner or later, but it seems our viewers knew that Monday night was the night.

We’ll need to wait a few more days to see if our viewers get it right next week, during the final rose ceremony. For now, here are our predictions

We started with the most obvious question to ask; which of the final three (yes three, survey went out last week remember?) contestants do you think Nick will give the final rose to? Viewers had little faith in Rachel, falling into third place with 20% of viewer votes. Fashion boutique owner Raven, is runner up with 36% of the viewer votes and if they get their way, Grimaldi (44%) will walk away with a Neil Lane diamond on her left hand Monday night. 

 

Next we asked who our viewers would have liked to see in the top three? Of all the beautiful, smart, charismatic women in the top 22, 39% our viewers voted for none other than Corinne Olympios. Alexis Waters, who was eliminated in week 5 came second in our viewer wishlist with 25% of the votes and Kristina Schulman, the dental hygienist from Kentucky came in 3 with a solid 23% of viewer votes. 

Next up, our favorite question for our viewers. Who do you want to see on RedTube? Take a guess, any guess. If you guessed Corinne again you could win a BRAND NEW CAR! Not really but I’ve always wanted to say that…The 24 year old who has admitted to having a personal nanny, might not be in the race for Viall’s heart anymore but that doesn’t mean she can’t have a spot in ours. With 48% of the votes, Corinne received the most votes by far to make it onto RedTube. Corinne, our offer always stands. Seems like Vanessa and Alexis not only won the hearts of Bachelor fans but also left their mark on RedTube viewers everywhere. Rounding out the top three preferred contestants to be in a RedTube video, Vanessa comes in second with 25% of the votes and Alexis in third with 10%. 

Didn’t get to vote this time around? Leave us your comments below to tell us who you think will walk away with the final rose Monday night.    

The Bachelor: Who will get the final Rose

The 21st season of The Bachelor has been a bumpy one. Even if you don’t follow the show, chances are you’ve at least heard about this season’s very colorful, breakout star Corinne. Although she got kicked off the show last week (right after the hometown visits, tear) there are three lovely ladies still in the running for Nick Viall’s heart.

We’ve asked for your votes on important events like the Oscars and the Grammys, even the U.S. election, so of course we would ask for your votes on who will get the final rose on March 13. 

RedTube Predicts Oscar Winners

Hollywood’s biggest night is almost upon us. This Sunday, February 26, the Dolby Theater will fill up with some of the industry’s biggest names. The host, none other than late night talk-show star Jimmy Kimmel. The nominees? Well there are plenty! La La Land leads with the most nominations of the year with 14, the last movie to get this many nods was Titanic in 1997. The coming-of-age tale Moonlight, and sci-fi thriller Arrival are tough contenders, each with 8 nods of their own.    After polling more than 100,000 RedTube viewers from all over the world about who they thought would take home awards in the end, clear winners were established for some of the most anticipated awards of the evening. We’ve already correctly predicted two other major events, let’s take a closer look at the results from our most recent survey and see if we can do it again.  

Although it’s usually the last award of the night, we thought we would start with the award for Best Picture. By a landslide, La La Land is the film most likely to walk away with an Oscar for this award. Hacksaw Ridge came a very far second with 12% of the votes and was followed by Arrival and Hidden Figures, both with 10% each. Manchester by the Sea (6%), Lion (5%), Moonlight (4%), Fences (3%) and Hell or High Water (2%) rounded out the category with only a handful of RedTube users predicting a big win for these titles.  

If RedTube viewers are correct, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone should bring home another two awards for the film. Gosling for Leading Actor, up against Denzel Washington for his role in Fences; Andrew Garfield from Hacksaw Ridge; Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea and Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic. While Stone, up for Lead Actress should beat out Nathalie Portman who portayed Jackie O Kennedy in Jackie; Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins; Isabelle Huppert in Elle and Ruth Negga from the film Loving, according to our poll.   

 

Unlike 2016, there was a noted improvement with respect to lack of diversity in the list of nominations this year. In the Supporting Actor category, RT viewers are torn between Jeff Bridges and Dev Patel for their supporting roles in (respectively) Hell or High Water and Lion. Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali was close behind with 21% of the votes, followed by Lucas Hedges, Manchester by the Sea (17%) and Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals (13%). As for Supporting Actress, Viola Davis is predicted to win for her role in Fences. Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Nicole Kidman (Lion) are close second, each with 20% of the votes. 

If our viewers predict correctly (as they have with the US election and Grammy Awards), La La Land should also take home an award for Best Directing. Damien Chazelle was a step ahead of the pack with 51% of the votes in this category. Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge received 21% of the votes; Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival, 10%; Manchester by the Sea received 10% for their directing, by Kenneth Lonergan and Barry Jenkins walked away with 8% of the votes for his film Moonlight.   

The last two categories we polled viewers on were Best Writing – Original Screenplay and Best Writing Adapted Screenplay. Both received very different results. First up, Best Writing – Original Screenplay. Although the title might not scream original to some, La La Land is predicted to win the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay with 49% of the votes. Manchester by the Sea and 20th Century Women were tied up with 16%, while Hell or High Water received 12% and The Lobster received a mere 7%. 

Finally, Best Adapted Screenplay. Our viewers have their money on Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi’s film, Hidden Figures. Moonlight directed by Barry Jenkins and written by Tarell Alvin McCraney received 20% of viewer votes. While Arrival by Eric Heisserer, Lion originally written by Luke Davies and Fences written by August Wilson round out the category.   

2017 Oscars: Who will win, who will lose

Every year the city of Los Angeles and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences work together to organize of one the biggest events of the year at the Dolby Theater (formerly known as Kodak Theater, for all you old folks) in Hollywood. What event? You might ask. Well, none other than the annual Oscar awards ceremony, duh! While the Academy works out last minute logistics, we at RedTube thought we would take to the streets (figuratively speaking, of course) to ask you- our loyal viewers, to help us predict who you think should win an Oscar on Sunday, February 26.

The battle lines have been drawn and here are some of the nominees, let us know who you think should take home a gold statue at next weeks 89th Annual Academy Awards. You hit the nail on the head with your Grammy predictions and the US elections, let’s see if third time really is a charm.

 

 

 

 

RedTube’s Dirty Cupid

There are some holidays that are unanimously liked by most people in this world. Christmas or Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, and Saint Patty’s day to name a few. Valentine’s Day is most definitely not, one of those holidays. For some, it’s a silent reminder that another year has passed and they are (still) single. While for others it’s a time to celebrate their relationship with some quality time together. For others it’s an excuse to ask for (or treat yo’self to) those expensive earrings you’ve been eyeing for the last 9 months. Most people have mixed feelings about the hallmark holiday and we at RedTube want to help settle those feelings. Without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to Dirty Cupid.

Grammy Predictions – We asked, you voted

It was not too long ago that we at RedTube, asked our users to help us predict the U.S. election. And as it turns out, your prediction came true. We are back at it again, only this time we are trusting you to help predict the Grammy winners at this year’s awards ceremony. A couple of weeks ago we hosted a survey on the site to see which artists you think will walk away with a Grammy. We’ll need to tune into the broadcast on Sunday, February 12th to see if you were right in your predictions, but for now, here’s how more than 100,000 of our viewers voted.

Let’s begin with the most anticipated award of the evening, Record of the Year. With 39% of viewer votes, Adele’s recent hit “Hello” should get her the Grammy for this one. Although “Stressed Out” by Twenty One Pilots is pretty close, with 24%. Queen Bey rounds out this category with a mere 11% for her anthem “Formation”.

“Hello from the other side” is right! If our viewers had a say in who should walk away with this year’s Grammy’s Adele would be on her own playing field. Voted most likely to walk away with Album of the Year and Song of the Year, Adele is pulling ahead of the other nominees with her album “25” and popular hit “Hello”. Beliebers came out voted for their main man but JB’s “Purpose” falls second for Album of Year. She tired to make lemonade from lemons, but Beyonce is tied at 3rd with Drake for their albums (respectively) “Lemonade” and “Views”. “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth” comes in last with 3% of the votes for Album of the Year.

Moving on to Best New Artist, The Chainsmokers were voted most likely to take home the gold in this category. With top 40 hits like “Closer”, “Don’t let me Down” and “All We Know” it’s no wonder they have the popular vote. Best Pop Solo Performance goes to queen of the evening, Adele for her song “Hello” followed extremely closely by pop diva Ariana Grande with her summer hit “Dangerous Woman”.  OG American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson rounds out the category with 7% of the votes. No surprise here, Adele also takes home a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album of the year with 32% of votes.

“Death of a Bachelor” received 38% of the votes for Best Rock Album this year. Blink 182’s “California” followed with 33% of the votes. The winner for Best Alternative Music was the late, great David Bowie. According to our viewers, his last album “Blackstar” would add another notch on his Grammy awards belt.

We all remember that time Kanye West stole the mic from T-Swift to pronounce that “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time”. Well this year, Yeezy is going up against Queen Bey for Best Rap/Sung Performance, both tied in second with 17% of the votes. Although we’ll have to wait ’til Feb. 12 to see if any drama goes on should she win instead of him, one thing is for sure- our viewers aren’t counting of either of them to take home the award in this category. Canadian cutie, Drake is the front runner with 44% of the votes for “Hotline Bling”.

Don’t forget to tune into CBS on Feb 12 to see if we were right or wrong. In the meantime, didn’t get to vote? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Inauguration Day by the Numbers; Trump vs. Obama

January 20th was an important day for all Americans with the inauguration of their 45th president, Donald Trump.  The event was broadcast live on television and online and we thought we would check out how traffic on our site was affected during the inauguration.  To add an extra dimension we partnered with The Wrap to compare the new stats to the last time the White House changed hands; when President Obama was sworn in for the first time in 2009.

Throughout the day, RedTube traffic across the United States dropped by 13% , compared to only -8% during the 2009 Inauguration. Looking at hourly traffic to the site, it seems as though President Trump’s inauguration had very little effect on our traffic. Usually daily traffic falls below average between 4am and 10am, and around 11am it starts to pick up until it peaks at midnight. On Trump’s inauguration day, we see that traffic hit its lowest at 11am, right when the inauguration started and then began to pick up again around 12:30pm- very close to the norms. Whereas during Obama’s first inauguration, we see very clear peaks in traffic before and immediately after his swearing in- likely because even the most loyal among our viewers didn’t want to miss the historic event.

When we compare the traffic in this same way from state to state, we can see that in 2009, traffic in typically Democratic states have some of the greatest drops in traffic during the swearing in of the former President. Most areas of the United States saw a decrease in traffic, however there were a few that experienced an increase. Republican states like West Virginia and Alabama actually saw an increase in traffic during President Obama’s inauguration, perhaps because they had to let off a load to ease the fact that it wasn’t their party’s leader coming into the white house.

During the 2017 inauguration of President Trump, while South Dakota and North Dakota had the highest increase in traffic on Friday (up 11% and 10%, respectively), the states with the largest drops in traffic included Oklahoma (-32%), Kansas (-28%) and New Mexico (-25%). Besides Oklahoma and Kansas, other states that saw a decrease in traffic included Montana, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. All of which generally known as red states, leading us to believe they may have been waiting patiently to see President Trump, the Republican candidate, be sworn in as 45th President of the USA on the news.

We also took a quick look at popular search terms now and then. In 2009 ‘Obama’ increased a whopping 844%, while searches ‘Sarah Palin,’ who made quite a few waves during the 2009 electoral campaign, increased by 79%.

redtube-2009-inauguration-searches

This year on the other hand, RedTube viewers kept it in the family…for the most part. Searches for the new First Lady increased by 970% while searches for President Trumps’ daughters Ivanka and Tiffany increased by 390% and 379%, and searches for the Donald grew by 253%. The POTUS’ campaign manager made an appearance as well with searches for ‘Kelly Trump Anal” increasing by 321%. It should also be noted that searches for ‘Golden Showers’ were up by 50%.

The Grammy Awards – Viewers Choice Survey

In early December of 2016, the list of nominees for the 59th annual Grammy awards was released. Leading the pack with 9 Grammy nods total (including Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year) Beyoncé could beat the current female record holder Alison Krauss, for most Grammy wins if she walks out with 8 of those 9 awards. Close behind Queen Bey is Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West who each scored 8 nominations this year.

We’ll have to wait until Sunday, February 12th to see who takes home the hardware. But for now we thought we’d take it online and see who our viewers are placing their money on. Check out the poll below and let us know what you think.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Redtube Insights

On December 16th at 12 a.m., millions of excited fans packed into movie theaters around the world for the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film drew in a cool $29 mil on the night of it’s premiere. Although not nearly enough to pull ahead of The Force Awakens, it is nonetheless the biggest premiere of the year so far pulling ahead of Batman vs. Superman and Captain America: Civil War. We decided to check in and see how user behavior would be affected by the release of the film, here’s what we found.

Beginning at the as early as Thanksgiving weekend, Redtube began to see a slight increase in the volume of searches related to the film. Probably because it was right around this time that the media started talking more and more about the upcoming premiere. The search volume really started to pick up on December 13, the day the movie opened in Los Angeles. The biggest jump in volume, however, came on December 16th, the day the film premiered worldwide. That day we saw a +332% increase in search volume, about 4.3 times the usual volume.

We also saw an increase in some Star Wars related search terms over the weekend the film first hit theaters. ‘Star wards force rising’ saw the greatest increase (+537%). The franchise name got twisted into some pretty entertaining search terms as well, including ‘star whores’, ‘sex wars’, ‘star wars xxx’ and ‘star wars clone wars’.  ‘Princess leia’ was the most searched for character from the film, followed by ‘rey’ and ‘darth vader blowjob’. Then of course there’s our personal favorite- one that always sees a good increase in growth whenever a Star Wars movie comes out, ‘anal lightsaber’, up 73% this time around.
