The fives times a day most people enjoy watching porn may or may not shock you. 

According to PornHub's Annual Year in Review, more people are watching porn at 4 p.m. than at the more professionally-appropriate time of 9 p.m. But the most popular times remain pretty predicatable at 10 p.m., 11 p.m. and 12 a.m. The site also states that people are spending about 9 minutes and 16 seconds on the site per visit. 

“This indicates that most people are not ‘addicted’ in a way that they spend all of their time on porn or doing little else with their time,” notes Dr. Laurie Betito, who commented on some of the results. “Your average person only stays long enough to find what they like and masturbate to it.”

During the weekday, most people are watching porn in the early morning between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. and in the evening into the night starting at 4 p.m. But on the weekend, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the number dips after 4 p.m. and goes up slightly after 10 p.m.

The terms that increased in popularity the most in 2015 were "lesbian," "black" and "celebrity sex tape."

Interestingly enough, the most popular word featured on the PornHub comments is "love."
