Thought you were in the know about pornography? Think again. Jon Millward, a self-described Ideas Detective, took it upon himself to delve deeper into the world of porn to study 10,000 porn stars and their careers. This is the first time a massive data set has been analyzed from the IMDB of porn, fittingly named the Internet Adult Film Database, and it seems that Jon was the man for the job.
“Without any mental deliberation, picture the average female porn star. Just let her spring into your mind’s eye looking however she looks. Can you see her?” Millward writes on his blog jonmillward.com. “I’ve spent the last six months analyzing it to discover the truth about what the average performer looks like, what they do on film, and how their role has evolved over the last forty years.”
While the infographic is extensive, if you want even more information you can check out his explanations on his site. “Deep Inside: A Study of 10,000 Porn Stars” delves into who the average porn star is.
If you’re curious, she’s a dark-haired Caucasian girl from California whose name is Nikki Lee. Nikki may be 5’5” but her measurements are 34-24-34. She has size 34B breasts and weighs only 117 pounds. Nikki probably has a tattoo, will be in the industry for about three years and will appear in approximately 19 films.
