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!
