Gay Star News reports that around the world, it's women who love to watch gay porn -- even more than men.

"Though other classics like 'teen,' 'MILF,' 'threesome' and 'anal' pepper this list as well, it's clear that the type of sex that women are most interested in watching what occurs between members of the same sex," said a spokesperson.

The results were gleaned from tracking visitors to Pornhub, the world's largest porn site. They report that of their 44 million daily visitors, women are the most interested in lesbian porn, with gay male porn coming in a close second.

With an estimated female viewership rate of about 21 percent, they discovered that women are 900 percent more likely to search for "eating pussy" than men are. Other lesbian-related searching like "scissoring" rank high up on the view list. (Take it from an actual lesbian, scissoring is not a real thing.)

For men, "lesbian" only ranked sixth, with "gay (male)" ranking seventh. Their top faves were "teen" "MILF" and "mature."

Pornhub notes that as much as ladies are into ladies doing other ladies, they prefer that the ladies be trim.

"There's no love from the ladies for the bigger beauties of porno land with the BBW category noticeably absent from the list on the female side despite its ranking at 13th place for the men," writes Pornhub.

The folks at Pornhub collaborated with their friends at Buzzfeed to analyze the data.

It shows that after gay and lesbian porn, women most want to watch so-called "For Women" porn, which focuses on sensuality. Following that, the most popular category for women are "solo male" videos. Women are also looking into the categories "rough sex," "double penetration" and "bondage."

And the three most common searches women are making are for "lesbian" "threesome" and "squirt" videos. Apparently, group sex is way more popular with women than with men. And finally, although she's never made (or at least never released) a sex tape, women's 13th most searched for celebrity porn star is Miley Cyrus.

"Which means that if she ever did, a lot of women would really want to see it," Buzzfeed concludes.
