After Pornhub released its most popular searches for 2018, it was clear that never has online porn viewership overlapped so much with American politics. Stormy Daniels was the most popular search of the year, according to the site's stats. She beat almost every category, including threesomes (number 10), romantic videos (number four) and fascinatingly Fortnite-inspired porn, which landed the second spot, Daily Mail reports.

The notorious pornstar, 39, is milking the most of her fame from her alleged affair with President Donald Trump. Daniels outdid other searched-for stars including Kim Kardashian, Blac Chyna, and Nicki Minaj, and earned over 30 million searches on the porn site in 2018.

Pornhub's Year in Review report for 2018 was packed with some truly interesting insights. Although given her newsworthiness Daniels' accomplishment was unsurprising, she topped the lists for both overall searches and celebrity searches.

Her alleged tryst with erstwhile Presidential hopeful Donald Trump continued to dominate the news through this year despite making headlines way back in 2016. Daniels filed a lawsuit against Trump in March this year claiming that the non-disclosure agreement was invalid as he had never personally signed it. According to her, Michael Cohen, his attorney, had tried to intimidate her in the process.

In her interview on 60 minutes, the sex goddess discussed her affair with Trump and claimed she was threatened into signing the NDA. Daniels filed another lawsuit against Trump in April citing libel charges. However, when the charges were dismissed in October, Trump tweeted about the dismissal and called the adult star "horseface."

Nonetheless, Pornhub patrons do not seem to care about her face as much, considering they searched for her in droves this year. Among other popular celebrity searches, Kim Kardashian's sex tape is viewed 55 times per minute on Pornhub, according to the released data.

Aside from Stormy, who topped the list of most-searched-for female pornstars, the most popular male stars included Johnny Sins, Jordi El Nino Polla, and the infamous James Deen, who, despite multiple accusations of rape and sexual misconduct against him, remains in high demand. It is interesting to note that women searched for Stormy Daniels more than they did for her male counterparts.

Among fictional characters, Harley Quinn earned the most searches clocking at 10.24 million. While it is unclear whether people were more interested in the character or simply women who looked like Hollywood star Margot Robbie. Other popular characters included the Incredibles gang, Family Guy, Star Wars, the Avengers, Game of Thrones, Wonder Woman, Lara Croft, Rick and Morty, and even children's movie Hotel Transylvania for that matter.
