The stats are in and it appears that the Philippines has topped Pornhub’s annual global rankings who spend the average longest time on the site.

According to the popular adult website’s 2017 year-long data, Filipinos have spent the longest time watching steamy videos for the 4th straight year. Clocking in at an average of 13 minutes and 28 seconds, Pinoy users are significantly higher than the average global visits of 9 minutes and 59 seconds.

South Africa came in at the runner-up spot at approximately 11 minutes. Following closely behind at more than 10 minutes are countries such as the United States (which dominated Pornhub’s “biggest source of traffic”), Canada, Argentina, and the United Kingdom.

The most popular porn stars in 2017 from Pornhub were awarded to Riley Reid (for the woman’s category) and Jordi El Nino Polla (for the man’s category). Currently 26 years old, Riley entered the porn industry in 2011 when she was 19. The psychology major has even more numerous awards including Female Performer of the Year.

Similarly, Jordi El Nino Polla was already a sensation in the porn industry when he hit 20. The Spanish adult actor earned the nickname “El Nino Polla” due to his small frame and youthful appearance. In 2016, he was approached by Montreal investors to collaborate in a production company called Brazzers, who play host to multiple pornographic sites.

The newcomer, who is the second most popular female porn star behind Riley Reid, has been the talk on the internet. People have been curious about pornographic actress who performed sexual acts while wearing the Islamic hijab.

Born in Lebanon and raised as a Catholic, she married an American man shortly after her 18th birthday. Since becoming famous, Mia has been met with various controversies and death threats for tarnishing the image of Islam. The 24-year-old told The Washington Post that she has since quit the porn industry for a more “normal job”. She is reportedly pursuing her career in broadcasting for a daily sports show.

It is mostly searched by the younger generation aged between 18 to 24.

Lately, leaflets advertising money loan have been making waves around Petaling Jaya (specifically Section 52).

The interesting thing is, these “Ah Longs” (or loan sharks) having been distributing flyers that look quite similar to the traffic summons issued by Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ). The group, who calls themselves “Malaysia Pinjaman Berlesen Agency (MPBA)”, had place the leaflets on various vehicle’s windshield and door handle.

To echo writer John Lim’s observation, not only does the logo looks almost alike to MBPJ but the colour scheme as well. Yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, 2nd January), MBPJ took to their official Facebook page to warn the public against falling for such schemes.

Do note that the group that issued the aforementioned fake compounds, which details interest rates for loan amounts and repayment schemes, does not have legitimate licence for any businesses nor promotions.

The statement from the city council reads:

We would like the public to be cautious against the abuse of logo in a leaflet that appears almost like the Council’s logo which is being misused. We have been alerted of such leaflets being circulated around Section 52, Petaling Jaya. Not just the logo, but even the design of the leaflet looks like the compound issued by MBPJ.”

Warning: This post will make you miss Barack Obama just a tiny bit more.

Barack Obama’s presidency was ground-breaking for multiple reasons. He was politically sound, socially approachable but what made him stand-out for millions of people around the globe was just two things: The fact that he was America’s first Black President, merely decades after slavery was abolished and his unparalled charisma.

In the middle of his presidency, Obama kicked-off a tradition of sharing his favourite literature and music to the rest of the world and these lists would usually include a fine blend of old school choices as well as fresh picks that made it relatable to the average kid on the street.

While he is no longer the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America, Obama decided to keep the tradition going via a Facebook post that was released yesterday. “During my presidency, I started a tradition of sharing my reading lists and playlists. It was a nice way to reflect on the works that resonated with me and lift up authors and artists from around the world. With some extra time on my hands this year to catch up, I wanted to share the books and music that I enjoyed most,” said Obama.

While the official list was posted on Facebook, someone has kindly created a playlist on Spotify with all of Obama’s favourite tracks from 2017 added into it. You have Kendrick Lamar’s Humble, DJ Khaled’s Wild Thoughts, Portugal The Man’s Feel It Still and even Brandi Carlile’s The Joke. Check out the whole list below!

I suppose it’s fair to say that in a few years, Barack Obama’s name will be officially recognized as a synonym to the word ‘cool’.
