We’ll share the MOST famous Pornstars and most searched based on the results from 5 of the biggest porn sites. See results and the trend across all sites!
Pornstars – we all have our favorites, fetishes, and kinks. But who are the most people getting off to? Which of our lovely adult performers is drawing in the most searches from around the world?
At this point, Mia Khalifa is practically a household name, and Lana Rhoades has been fighting her for the crown – even though both retired from porn years ago. Newcomers and die-hard fans alike are still clicking their videos, but searches are slowly trending away from them.
We won’t spoil it for you, but Mia and Lana’s spots at the top might be in danger.
Here are the hottest and dirtiest data from our research:
- On XVideos, Mia Khalifa is the most popular pornstar of all time – both in the U.S. and worldwide. On XHamster, she’s currently the site’s most popular pornstar.
- Cherie Deville appears in at least 8,843 videos across five different popular porn sites, which is more than any other top pornstar.
- Tony Profane has over 3 billion views on Pornhub, roughly 600K more views than the next runner-up, Johnny Sins, with 2.4 billion views.
- Mia Khalifa is the most famous pornstar in the world based on exposure alone – her videos have been viewed well over 11.5 billion times.
- Pornstar Alex Adams appears in gay and straight videos. He’s the #1 gay pornstar on XVideos, the #2 overall pornstar on XNXX, and the #2 male pornstar on Pornhub.
- On XNXX, only 5 of Russia’s top 10 pornstars are the same as the USA’s, and only two of them are female – Adriana Chechik and Cory Chase.
- Abella Danger and Mia Khalifa are the only pornstars in the top 10 most popular list on all 5 sites – XVideos, XHamster, XNXX, Pornhub, and Redtube.
- On both XVideos and XNXX, none of the top 10 pornstars among Chinese viewers are women of European descent.
Daisy Taylor, Natalie Mars, and Chanel Santini are the only transwomen who rank in the top 10 trans pornstars across three different major porn sites.
The Most Searched Pornstars on the World’s Most Popular Porn Site – XVideos
As the world’s biggest porn site, XVideos’ top pornstar picks might carry a little more weight than those of other sites.
Their viewers are also slightly more diverse than some other sites. However, they still only represent one audience of porn viewers. Therefore, their popularity rankings are based on worldwide visitors seeking out these pornstars.
As of 2022, these are the all-time most popular global pornstars on Xvideos:
Of the Top 15 global pornstars on XVideos, Cory Chase appears in the most videos (2,909 videos), followed by Abella Danger (2,623 videos)
Of the all-time top 15 pornstars on XVideos, at least 7 are commonly categorized as MILFs.
Here’s a list of the top gay pornstars in the world, according to XVideos:
4 out of the all-time worldwide top 10 gay pornstars on XVideos are from Brazil.
While there is some crossover between gender and sexuality categories on XVideos, these are the world’s most popular pornstars on the trans version of the site:
Binho Ted appears in more videos (2,177) on the site than most of the top female pornstars.
In the U.S., the most popular pornstars are a little different – but you’ll still recognize many of the names.
XNXX – The Most Famous Pornstars in the U.S.
As the world’s second-biggest porn site – and a site with the same owners as XVideos – their rankings should be looked at similarly to those of their sister site.
However, XNXX popularity rankings are based on views. Views often indicate that the user searched for the videos first, but not always. Therefore, these rankings are better at gauging a pornstar’s fame than their search volume.
XNXX also provides rankings based on countries – not the world. We used the U.S. rankings here but randomly picked a few other countries to pull some interesting data.
Of all categories, here are the most searched and viewed top pornstars in the U.S. from XNXX. These results go by views and are updated frequently, which explains why some male pornstars tagged in many different videos are at the top:
3 of the top 10 most-viewed pornstars on XNXX are male, and at least 4 are women over the age of 30.
XNXX provides top pornstar data by country. The only pornstar that appears in the USA’s top 10 but not in Austria’s is Riley Reid, who is replaced by a star called “Dirty Tina.”
Russia only shares 5 pornstars with the USA in its top 10, and only 2 of them are female – Adriana Chechik and Cory Chase.
Here are XNXX’s top gay pornstars in the U.S. While all of these stars aren’t necessarily gay, they’re the most popular among the site’s gay users:
Alex Adams is XNXX’s most popular pornstar among homosexuals in the U.S., and its second-most popular pornstar for straight people in the U.S.
These are the most popular trans pornstars on XNXX in the U.S.:
Lucy Hart is the #1 star on XNXX’s trans section and the #2 star in the site’s gay section.
Pornhub’s Top 10 in ALL Categories
While XVideos and XNXX pull more site traffic, Pornhub pulls more data from its users (anonymously) than possibly any other porn site. They post annual reviews of pornographic trends, search patterns, and more.
Their audience isn’t quite as large as our last two sites, but it is impressive and growing every day. Because of their persistent attention to detail, Pornhub’s data may be slightly more reliable.
However, their rankings aren’t based on viewership alone; the pornstars that the most people are watching may not be the highest-ranked. In a way, this makes sense. You might’ve seen more videos of Johnny Sins railing pornstars than you have of Mia Khalifa – it doesn’t mean you were looking for him specifically.
Their rankings are also yearly; they don’t list their all-time top stars, so this data is all from 2022.
These women are Pornhub’s most popular female pornstars worldwide for 2022 so far.
Despite retiring from professional porn in late 2017, Lana Rhoades remains #1 on Pornhub and other adult sites. This is likely due to her Instagram activity and large social media following.
Though ranked lower in popularity, Riley Reid and Abella Danger beat both Mia Khalifa and Lana Rhoades by hundreds of thousands of views.
Pornhub provides more data than any other site on its user searches. Their most-searched pornstars from 2021 are nearly identical to their top pornstars of 2022, so it stands to reason that their top-rated stars are also their top-searched.
These men are Pornhub’s current top 10 male pornstars:
Alex Adams is Pornhub’s 10th most popular pornstar overall in 2022 – the only man to make the top 10.
While they’re only ranked #124, #12, and #10 in overall Pornhub pornstars, respectively, Tony Profane (3B views), Johnny Sins (2.4B views), and Alex Adams (2B views) have the two highest view counts on the site.
Pornhub is one of the only sites that differentiate between transmen and transwomen in its “trans” categories. Here are the current top 10 transwomen pornstars on the site:
Daisy Taylor started her career later than most of Pornhub’s top 10 transwomen stars (2018) but quickly made it to #1.
These transmen are Pornhub’s top 10 current most popular stars in their category:
Redtube’s Top Pornstars
Despite being owned by the same company, Redtube’s top rankings are significantly different than Pornhub’s (Brandi Love is in the top 3, so we’re not complaining). They don’t have yearly rankings. They rank by current week, current month, or all-time.
Pornstar popularity changes daily, so we wouldn’t be doing you any favors giving you the weekly rankings. So instead, these numbers show the all-time most popular pornstars on Redtube.
These women make up Redtube’s top 10 most popular female pornstars of all time:
Redtube is the only site that lists Kendra Lust in its all-time top 10 pornstars – though she is #11 on XVideos.
These men are the all-time top-rated male pornstars on Redtube. They’re ranked by gender, but their ranking among all pornstars overall is also included:
Redtube is the only top porn site that does not list Alex Adams in its top 10 male pornstars.
The Best of XHamster
Last but not least, XHamster isn’t owned by the world’s two largest porn firms. That’s not to say it isn’t a heavyweight – just that its data is its own and will be significantly different from our last four sites.
Mia Khalifa still tops the charts for XHamster, and there are some other familiar faces, but by and large, its users have unique preferences that are revealed in its top 10.
With that in mind, it’s easy to see how a star who makes it to the top on our other sites and XHamster truly has talent.
The site offers global rankings and the ability to see the top pornstars from any country. Here’s a look at the data.
XHamster’s current most popular female pornstars worldwide are as follows:
Despite being ranked #42 overall, Alex Adams has 535.8 million views on XHamster – more than any other pornstar in the top 50.
Here’s a list of XHamster’s current top 10 female pornstars from the USA:
Of the top 10 American pornstars on XHamster, 6 of them are commonly categorized as MILFs.
Cross-Site Pornstar Statistics
We looked at data from the world’s top 5 porn sites and tried to identify interesting trends, statistics, or information that could shed some light on which pornstars are the most searched for and most famous.
Also, we included any data that we thought was just too interesting to leave out.
Without accounting for repeat videos, Cherie Deville seems to appear in most porn films out of any of the world’s top pornstars:
Pornstar Alex Adams appears in gay and straight videos. He’s the #1 gay pornstar on XVideos, the #2 overall pornstar on XNXX, and the #2 male pornstar on Pornhub.
The male pornstar known as “Mandingo” has more videos than any other top male pornstar:
On both XVideos and XNXX, none of the top 10 pornstars among Chinese viewers are women of European descent.
Few stars make the top 10 lists on all five sites. Here are the pornstars everyone is looking for, no matter what site they’re on:
Of the three sites with trans pornstar rankings, Daisy Taylor, Natalie Mars, and Chanel Santini made the top 10 in all three.
Most Famous Pornstar: We took the women with the highest views on Pornhub, then cross-referenced them with the other four sites (Lana Rhoades didn’t quite stack up) and added the views.
Mia Khalifa’s video views:
Abella Danger’s video views:
Riley Reid’s video views:
Adriana Chechik video views:
Based on views alone, Mia Khalifa is the world’s most famous pornstar – we couldn’t find any star with more views across all five sites.
Pornstars are ranked differently across the five major porn sites (XVideos, XNXX, Pornhub, Redtube, and XHamster). Still, their differences and similarities tell us quite a bit about who the world is searching for when it needs to blow off steam.
While Mia Khalifa is unequivocally the world’s most famous pornstar, she is no longer the most-viewed or even the top-ranked on all sites. For now, searches have been trending toward Lana Rhoades (likely due to her media presence on Instagram and OnlyFans), but some sites rank her much lower than others.
Abella Danger is forging ahead in views and rankings like a lion on the prowl. She outranks Lana Rhoades on XHamster and XNXX and is right behind her on Pornhub and XVideos. While she’s still more than 3 billion views behind Mia Khalifa, it’s a solid second place.
Riley Reid isn’t far behind, either. Mia Khalifa may be the world’s most famous porn star, but Abella Danger and Riley Reid are steadily making their way to the top.
Aside from them, the rankings on most sites change weekly. Pleasure demands variety, and the top XVideos stars for the last three months are full of women who didn’t make their all-time list; how we search for sexual gratification changes all the time.
