Self-proclaimed ideas detective Jon Millward spent six months looking at data from 10,000 porn stars to discover how an average performer looks, what they pull off onscreen, and how their role has evolved over the last forty years. He ended up creating a massive infographic and a 5,000 word report.

Fun facts: Nikki and David are the most used porn names, dark-haired porn stars outnumber blonde ones almost 2-to-1, and the average life span of a porn star is now four years for men and three years for women, compared to 12 years for men and 9 years for women in the 1970s. Even porn stars are getting burnt out.
