Porn-site commenters use these emoticons most (bow-chicka-winky)

Because everything can be turned into data, Pornhub has compiled statistics showing the cyber shorthand its users prefer.

These are the most popular emoticons used in Pornhub comments, if that's the kind of thing you like to know.

Pornhub

Porn viewers have a definite preference when it comes to emoticons and emoji, and thankfully, it's not a farm animal. According to Pornhub, it's the simple winking face.

Since 2014, more than 12 million comments have been left on the adult site, and over 1.5 million of those comments contain an emoji or emoticon, the site reports on its Insights page.

The wink ;) shows up more than 420,000 times, followed by the basic smiley :) at 383,000 times. The third most popular is the sticking-out-tongue face :P. That one is way, way far down the list, used 70,900 times.

Pornhub also has its own texting service that lets users text a certain emoji and get sent back an X-rated video relating to that emoji's topic. Most popular among those is the video-camera emoji, which sends back an amateur adult video.

Pornhub also revealed last week that searches for Pokemon porn on its site are up 136 percent since the launch of hit mobile game Pokemon Go. Because not only can everything be turned into data, but everything can be turned into porn.
