The Look of Ecstasy – Hentai Trending!

Welcome back to Hentai Trending, the article series where we get down and dirty with data and look at what you all have been searching for across the web!

We’ve spent a lot of quality time with some fine T&A, but that’s not all there is to a woman. Science suggests that many of us make a split-second decision on whether or not we like a person we’ve just met by the appearance of their face, so let’s explore an explosive face-based trend this week!

Ahegao is all about the wonderful pleasure-based expression someone makes when having sex. The word has an interesting etymology – the first part of the word, ‘ahe’, comes from the onomatopoeia ‘aheahe’ expressed by a girl’s breath and moaning from the sexual excitement of sex while the latter part of the word, ‘gao’, means face.

We’ve seen a gradual increase in interest in ahegao hentai over the last 5 years with every year showing a marked increase in searches over the previous years. It’s reached a point where you can buy ahegao sleeping masks and even shirts with ahegao plastered all over them! Let’s take a look at the countries that are really pushing this trend up:

 

 

South Korea takes the #1 spot for countries that love to see a girl’s face in rapture! Brunei, the Phillipines, Singapore, and Malaysia take spots 2-5 in respective order. It’s no surprise that the trend has a stronger presence in the East, but it is interesting to see it so fiercely represented by many smaller countries!

The USA is ranked 15th in countries that love ahegao, but it doesn’t mean the States don’t have a lot of love for it! Let’s see what states show the most:

Hawaii takes home the trophy for #1 ahegao loving state, but other states aren’t far behind! Arizona, Nevada, California, and West Virginia all have a lot of love for that glazed over look in a woman’s face during sex. With one exception, the western states dominate this trend.
