As more and more internet service providers in India and telcos ban access to porn sites in the country, people are turning to every avenue to scratch the porn itch. Indians are searching for porn on other videos platforms.

YouTube is clearly the most popular videos site in the world and it too has seen a huge spike in searches for porn-related terms, presumably by those who do not wish to get into the hassles of using a VPN.

By analyzing YouTube trends, we can see that the government’s expectation that people will give up porn is totally mistaken. In fact, the search for such videos in the mainstream has only risen.

The frequency of searches for some of the common porn-related terms have shot up by approximately 200 percent or so over the past month, seeing a huge jump in the past 10 days, starting October 20, when the ban started trickling in, starting with Reliance Jio.

Searches on YouTube related to popular porn websites such as Pornhub and Xvideos surged by almost 400 percent. We tried 10 of the more popular search terms that we could find based on search trends on top porn websites to see how these terms have grown on Youtube over the last 30 days:

 

Indians searching for porn on other videos platforms after ban puts on Porn sites in India:

 

* Xvideos – 370%
* Pornhub – 357%
* Indian sex videos – 238%
* Xnxx – 227%
* Desi sex – 222%
* Porn – 204%
* Indian sex – 185%
* Mallu sex – 182%
* Sex scene – 147%
* Bollywood Sex – 144%

Yes, YouTube is not the best place to look for porn, but it’s something in the face of nothing. Secondly, this could become a bigger issue for Youtube as it does not have a very good record of keeping questionable content off its platform, which has often landed it in hot soup with privacy experts.

It’s quite evident that the porn ban which the Department of Telecommunication has asked telcos to enforce, following the orders of the Uttarakhand High Court has not had any effect on people wanting to watch porn online. Meanwhile, more informed users are taking the route of using VPN services to watch porn, easily bypassing the blocking.

It is interesting to notice that Indian government should need a better solution than this feeble implementation, and perhaps the government needs to have a rethink about what exactly a porn ban can solve as people seem to be just as keen to watch these videos.

It’s not exactly curing the population of its itch for porn, so perhaps it would be better to unblock these sites, and look at sex education for a solution.

 Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi shipped 11.7 million units and became the top brand in the Indian market with 27.3 per cent share in the third quarter this year, with Samsung at second spot, the International Data Corporation (IDC) said on Thursday.

According to the IDC “Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker”, the smartphone market in India reached an all-time high of 42.6 million unit shipments in the third quarter (ending September 30), registering a 9.1 per cent year-on-year (YOY) growth.

This is the first time when the smartphone market is at par with the feature phone market, each contributing 50 per cent to the overall mobile phone market.

With the growth in the smartphone segment came a warning.

“With the duty hikes in place and the dollar fluctuation, smartphone vendors are expected to raise prices of devices in the coming months rather than absorbing the cost or clocking it under cash backs and financing schemes,” said Navkendar Singh, Associate Research Director, Client Devices and IPDS, IDC India.

In the wake of the depreciating rupee and rising input costs, Realme and Xiaomi have already increased prices of some of their handsets.

Xiaomi increased the prices of its budget smartphones Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, along with Mi Powerbank 2i and Mi TV (32-inch Pro and 49-inch Pro variants).

Online-focused Chinese smartphone maker Realme increased the prices of its two popular budget handsets in India. The Rs 6,999 Realme C1 is now priced at Rs 7,999 while Rs 8,990 Realme 2 (3GB variant) is priced at Rs 9,499.

According to Upasana Joshi, Associate Research Manager, Channel Research, IDC India, shipments in the third quarter were primarily driven by the eTailer channel in run up to the festival season.

“eTailers continued to drive affordability with multiple financing options such as zero or low-cost EMIs (equated monthly instalments), buyback guarantees and cashback on debit/credit cards,” Joshi said in a statement.

Xiaomi grew to a new high on the back of its successful Redmi 5A and Redmi Note 5 Pro series and refreshed Redmi 6/A/Pro portfolio, said the report.

“Samsung registered an annual growth of 4.8 per cent in 3Q18 at the back of its ‘Infinity’ series model ‘Galaxy J6’ followed by Galaxy J2 (2018), J8, J4 and the recently launched Android Go Model Galaxy J2 core with a middling demand,” the IDC report added.

Vivo continued at third position with a growth of 35.4 per cent.

The offline segment registered a slower annual growth of 6.6 per cent in the third quarter.

Commenting on the premium end of the market (above Rs 30,000), Joshi said that OnePlus climbed to the leadership position at the back of OnePlus 6, surpassing Samsung and Apple in the third quarter.

With a 2.1 per cent (YoY) growth, the feature phone market registered shipments of 43.1 million units in the 3Q 2018. Shipments for Jio Phone continued to decline as the vendor focused on clearing existing channel inventory, said the report.
