Nutaku, a portal for playing adult-oriented games with sexy animated characters, also called hentai games, just turned three. To celebrate the milestone, the Canadian company released some insights into its 25 million North American customers.

Right now, Nutaku (Careful! This link may not be safe for work) is the most trafficked North American portal for 18+ games, and the company has had a lot of data to parse. The full infographic is below, but here are some of the most interesting tidbits:

Female hentai gamers doubled in 2017

Female gamers made up only 15% of Nutaku’s audience in 2017, but that’s up from 8% in 2016. This may have something to do with Nutaku’s expanded offerings that allow gamers both to play as girls and to seduce guys as well as girls. In Sweet Volley High, for example, the player avatar is a girl who chooses to romance different female and male cuties at her school.

A quarter of gamers have played porn games at work

I am not sure how Nutaku figured this one out, but 27% of its audience has apparently logged on at the office. I sure hope they are at least gaming on a discreet phone screen. After all, as another insight shows, Nutaku’s mobile audience now makes up 55% of traffic.

Almost half of hentai gamers play every day

In my June look into the hentai gaming community, I found out that it’s not just an excuse—a lot of hentai gamers say they are playing partially because they like the gameplay. There are puzzle games similar to Candy Crush, card games, and strategy games to pick from.

Check out all the statistics in the infographic below. And if you’re a Nutaku fan, feel free to take part in their birthday giveaway, too. Maybe your gaming habits will be included in the infographic next year!

Declared fail: It’s unfair students could not clear third year, says DUSU

New Delhi Members of Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) staged a protest at the university on Wednesday after they claimed that a number of third year students failed in their practicals and in turn failed to clear their third year.

The students claimed that they were not informed that they had to pass individual components of a course in order to clear a subject, and hence their failing in the course was ‘unfair.’

Slogans demanding “third year students be promoted” rang outside gate number four of DU North Campus on Wednesday, as many students gathered to demand that they be promoted, despite failing.

“I had scored 36 out of 45 in theory, and seven out of 15 in internals in Computer Applications which are both above the passing grade of 40%. Even my total score of 56% was above the passing grade. However, they said I have failed the subject because I have scored only 13 out of 40 in my practical exams. I was never told by my teachers, or my college, that I would need to pass theory, practical and internals separately to clear the subject,” said Jyoti, a BCom programme student at Laxmi Bai College.

Members of DUSU claimed that they had received applications asking for help from as many as 2000 students, most of whom had failed the practical component of a subject in their fifth semester.

“We have received at least 700 applications from BCom programme students who failed in practicals in Computer Applications. In addition to this, there have been many students who have had issues in Music, BCom (Hons), and Statistics (Hons),” said Saket Bahuguna, the ABVP spokesperson.

DU officials said that a committee had been formed to look into the issue.

“They will check if students had been misinformed and moot possible solutions,” said an official.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Yes! Keith and team are joining Twitter to help lead and strengthen our service!,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted on Thursday.

Jeff Seibert, who was recently head of product, stepped down in June after being in the role for about five months.
Kevin Weil, who now heads Facebook Inc’s Instagram product division, was with Twitter for more than five years and was vice-president of product development before Seibert.
Twitter, which faces stagnating user growth amid stiff competition from rivals, has for months been rumored to be up for sale and hired bankers last month to field acquisition offers.
