What we can learn from 10,000 porn stars

Like most of us, writer Jon Millward has spent the last few months thinking about porn on the internet. He’s been crunching numbers taken from 10,000 profiles of porn stars on the Internet Adult Film Database, compiling the data—heights, weights, and bra sizes; roles, movie titles.

But it seems fair to assume that some of the more basic demographic information is right. Among the things we might learn from (the processed data of) 10,000 porn stars:

The most common bra size is 34B, and most female porn performers are brunettes.
The top porn star-producing state is California, which has birthed four times as many porn stars (939) as its next-closest rival Florida (at 216).
Internationally, Hungary and the Czech Republic follow the United States as the most common birth places of porn stars.
The most common role for women in porn: “teen.” Followed by: “MILF,” “wife” “cheerleader” and “nurse.”
The average age of performers playing “MILFs”: 33. Only 7 percent are over 40 years old.
“Butts,” and its synonyms, appear in porn titles twice as frequently as “boobs” and its synonyms.
