Pornhub partners with sexologists to create the first research-based sexual personality test

Pornhub has announced the expansion of SexType.Me, the largest study of sexual personality ever conducted. Researchers intend to use Pornhub’s immense popularity to learn more about modern sexual habits, how they relate to common personality traits, and compare results with selected Porhub models.

Originally produced by the Museum of Sex with technology from molecular biologist Lee Silver (Professor, Princeton University) and Kristen Mark (University of Minnesota and the Kinsey Institute), SexType.Me utilizes sophisticated analytical techniques used for genomic research to discover sexual personality traits, aka ‘sexual dimensions.’ Additional features allow participants to compare their sexual personality to friends and lovers, and also discover Pornhub Models that share their sexual personality traits.

As the sample set of participants grows, SexType.Me will discover new sexual dimensions. Leveraging Pornhub’s massive user base, SexType.Me will expand its user base exponentially and periodically announce new, significant discoveries.

Completing the survey will also allow the sexual personality of consenting participants to be directly compared and matched with those of Pornhub Models such as Asa Akira, Kira Noir, Angela White, Keiran Lee, Jordi El Niño Polla, Charlotte Sartre, Aubrey Kate, MySweetApple, LuxuryGirl, MissLexa, Mini Diva, Lil D, June Liu, Jade Kush or Jkab Ethan Dale.

“At the core of sexual health is an understanding of sexual personality and desires,” said Pornhub. “SexType.Me will go a long way toward allowing users to fully grasp their sexuality type, even matching users with some of their favorite Models. We’re happy to partner with the Museum of Sex and take part in a project that can be both entertaining and educational, and utilize our loyal base to help fuel research that can make impactful change.”

Besides discovering new personality traits, this research project aims to help individuals learn more about their complete and complex sexual identity, and help researchers understand whether sexual personality traits are linked to well-known characteristics such as extroversions or empathy or are unrelated domains of mental expression. It also aims to empower participants to understand their sexual nature, start dialogues with partner(s) and lead a more authentic sexual relationship.

“We know from classical era writings that personality tests have been around for at least 2,000 years. Their premise has been that a comprehensive view of a person can be inferred from a small number of two-sided descriptors, like extroverted versus introverted or impulsive versus cautious. But legitimate surveys have failed to acknowledge the existence of a whole class of personality descriptors – those that have some connection to individual differences in sexuality. The SexType.Me survey will be the first of its kind to look into sexual personality descriptors,” said Professor Lee Silver.

The test consists of three pages, where at each question you indicate which of the two statements and to what extent it fits your personality. The test takes about 15 minutes to complete.

“Thanks to Pornhub’s collaboration and tremendous reach, we will be able to collect enough responses to obtain meaningful results that help analyze sexual personalities. Once the survey receives a sufficient number of participants, we will use computational tools developed for research in human genetics to sort out the hidden features of both traditional and sexual personality and how they commune with each other.” The professor continues.

Until recently, many Americans would stifle their sexual desires out of shame or embarrassment. More than half, 54% exacly, of LGBTQ Americans have hidden a personal relationship to avoid discrimination. Sextype.Me can be used to help participants understand where they are in their sexual journey. Pornhub and The Museum of Sex seek to remove the taboo around sex and help individuals learn more about their complex sexuality.

“The Museum of Sex is excited to work with Pornhub on this ground breaking project. Their massive user base will enable us to significantly increase our data set and uncover significant personality traits using Dr. Silver’s unique computational methodology. We believe this will be one of the most significant personality surveys ever done,” says the Museum of Sex.

SexType.Me won’t be around forever, with the site closing as soon as a meaningful sample size has been reached. Participants will need to act fast if they want to see who their Pornhub Model matches are.

To help encourage participation in SexType.Me, Pornhub will promote the project on its site, which gets 130 million visitors daily. The participating models, who have large social followings, will also be promoting SexType.Me on their social channels. After the survey is complete, researchers will share findings on the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center. Researchers also intend to publish their findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
