When it comes to watching porn online, women are slowly bridging the gap in India with as much as 30% of women in India now regularly visiting porn websites, says a new study.

Last year, 26% Indian women were online searching for porn .

While lesbian porn was found to be the runaway hit among women, women across the globe are also watching more "hardcore" acts than men, revealed the study done by popular general interest website Pornhub in collaboration with New York-based news website, The Daily Beast.

The data came from nearly 40 million Pornhub users.

Compared to the worldwide average of 24% female porn viewers -- an increase of one percent over the previous year, the Philippines and Brazil took the lead with 35% female viewers.

India and Argentina came in a close second with 30% female porn viewers.

Using high-tech analytics software, the study revealed that women are also more selective than men when it comes to online porn viewing.

"Women are spending more time watching porn - a worldwide average of 10 minutes and 10 seconds compared to men at just nine minutes and 22 seconds," the results showed.

Japan presented the largest proportional gap between male and female porn viewers (83% male and 17% female).

Women in the US ranked pretty low (23% women and 77% male).

Nearly 24% of women in France visit online porn websites regularly.

Earlier, global research firm Pew Research Centre in 2013 surveyed the online viewing habits of 1,003 Americans and found that 25 percent of men admitted to watching porn in comparison to eight percent of women.
