Xbox One users view less porn than those on the PS4

Have you heard of SugarDVD? If not, they're the Netflix of porn, giving customers the ability to rent DVDs or stream content directly to supported devices. They have an app for both the Xbox One and the PS4 and have recently released stats showing that PS4 owners are streaming porn three times more frequently than those who own the Xbox One.

Buzzfeed posted the stats, although there's only speculation as to why PS4 owners are signing up with SugarDVD at this higher rate. One theory is that the Xbox One is being marketed by Microsoft as a family console, while another idea is that people don't want to get naked in front of the ever-watching Kinect camera.

SugarDVD also provided Buzzfeed a list of the top 10 titles viewed for each console, as well as the top 10 categories, so if you're interested, check it out. The link is safe for work.

Why do you think PS4 owners are watching so much more porn than their Xbox One counterparts? Regardless, none of this should come as any surprise. After all, the Internet IS for porn...

And this is, in actuality, because PS4 has no games.

/troll oh god, that felt so good. Okay okay, back to reading this xD

Is this because there are more PS4s (they didn't say if it was based on ratio or net viewers), or is it because the Xbox One is where the cable box is and not some bedroom? Also didn't think about the kinect thing until the article mentioned it but lol maybe people are self conscious in front of it!

I saw side threads titled "PS4 outselling Xbox One worldwide by 36%" so I assume that is the main reason for this 1 to 3 ratio.

actually there is a simpler explanation. xbox apps are behind a paywall. ps4 apps aren't. that's why they are used more often. I can't believe neowin missed this basic fact.

This simply cannot be true. Sony told us that people do not want their consoles to be used for media, just games. Sony wouldn't lie to us, would they?

Except Sony never said that, and if they truly believed that, they wouldn't have added all of those media features.

You think you're be running out of straw by now.

I suspect the Xbox One app requires a paid gold membership while the PS4 version doesn't. That's why the Netflix app on the PS3 is used more than the Xbox360 as well. Put something behind an additional pay wall and less people are likely to use it.

Having a camera looking at me 24/7 I wouldn't watch porn too.

LOL! Good point. Don't want NSA to leak that **** on YouPorn.

No wonder PS4 owners are signing up at a higher rate than XboxOne owners!
The PS4 has sold a few more units after all! XboxOne's are easy to find in stock. PS4's - not so much!

Wouldn't it be more that there are specific apps for the PS4 that stream porn and not so much for the XBox One? I'm pretty sure that's the case, someone correct me if I am wrong

The company releasing these figures has apparently released an App for both...

My guess is that since the PS4 is geared towards being a gaming console it may be in someone's room vs. the Xbox One which is probably in a living room or family room.

My guess would be they made it up for free advertising like this.

I'm sorry, but seeing your username (Mr. Hand) in this article made me chuckle.

XBOX is for families and PS4 is for dungens.

Nah, the people with XB1 are just too busy playing actual good games and getting laid for real.

I think you have a contradiction there, mate.
