Sexualitics is an interdisciplinary collaboration among sociologists, political scientists, and statisticians that has created a quantitative analysis of online pornography. The team analyzed more than 800,000 videos uploaded to the porn site Xhamster between 2007 and February 2013 to uncover keywords and how they trended in that time period.

Using their dataset, the team created an interactive tool that lets you search for and compare the terms used in various porn videos’ titles. The name of this particular tool? ”Porngram.” The no-nonsense named tool lets you track the instances of keywords over time, as a percentage of the entire dataset.
