History

XVideos was founded in Paris in 2007 by the French owner Stephane Michael Pacaud. XVideos serves as a pornographic media aggregator, a type of website which gives access to adult content in a similar manner as YouTube does for general content. Video clips from professional videos are mixed with amateur and other types of content. By 2012, XVideos was the largest porn website in the world, with over 100 billion page views per month. Fabian Thylmann, the owner of MindGeek, attempted to purchase XVideos in 2012 in order to create a monopoly of pornographic tube sites. The French owner of XVideos turned down a reported offer of more than US$120 million by saying, “Sorry, I have to go and play Diablo II.”[9] In 2014, XVideos controversially attempted to force content providers to either pledge to renounce the right to delete videos from their accounts or to shut down their accounts immediately.

Web traffic and ranking

As of August 2021, XVideos was the most visited porn website and the seventh most visited website in the world, as ranked by SimilarWeb.

XNXX, another site owned by WGCZ Holding, is the tenth most visited website overall and the second most visited website in the adult category. Both XVideos and XNXX were also the world’s most visited websites for virtual reality videos in 2021.

Further information: Internet censorship in India
In 2015, the company was censored by the Indian government on a list of 857 pornographic websites, which also included non-pornographic websites such as CollegeHumor. In 2018, major Indian internet service providers also blocked access to XVideos and other porn sites.

Lebanon


In 2014, Lebanon’s Minister of Telecommunications ordered internet service providers to block six pornographic websites including XVideos. Some internet providers did not oblige, while others like Mobi DSL did.

Malaysia


In 2015, the Malaysian government banned XVideos for violating the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, which bans “obscene content” from being digitally distributed.

Philippines


On 14 January 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte blocked XVideos as a part of Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Law.

Vietnam


Since November 2019, ISPs have silently blocked access to every major pornographic website, including XVideo. Most ISPs declined to comment and denied blocking the sites. Most users assumed that this was a result of a secret Government mandate. Despite that, the sites are still accessible through the use of a VPN.
