Writer Jon Millward has compiled perhaps the most exhaustive statistical study on what makes up the "average" porn star.

"Deep Inside: A Study of 10,000 Porn Stars and Their Careers" sheds light on what makes up the people who work in the porn industry. Over the last six months, Millward dug through the Internet Adult Film Database, which is basically IMDB for porn, and compiled the data into shockingly comprehensive infographics.

Above is a face morph that takes the most popular adult film stars and averages out their faces in what could be called the statistically most common porn star — which certainly goes against the popular notion of the blonde, big-boobed, blue-eyed face of pornography.

The study uses 10,000 porn stars as a sample size for much of it, but while compiling physical details, such as skin tone or skin color, Millward took from almost 31,500 adult actors.
