Our intrepid porn-search correspondent Josh Kurp touched on this phenomenon a few weeks ago when discussing the most popular (or poopular, in the case of South Africa) porn searches in certain US states and countries. Now it’s time to touch on it some more, as additional evidence seems to prove even further that areas which are hotbeds of homophobia (great gay porn title, btw) are often simultaneously the most chock full of people searching for gay porn. You don’t say.
Web users are defying legal bans on homosexuality to enjoy an array of gay pornography on their computers in countries where same-sex relations are prohibited.
Sex searches compiled by country reveal appetites for gay activity in African countries where homosexuals are stigmatised and hounded by the law.
In Iran, gay porn searches litter the top of the XXX search charts.
It makes obvious sense, since I can’t imagine caring that much about whether a couple gay dudes grind boners or lesbians scissor unless it’s really your own urges that you’re worried about. Anyway, let’s talk specifics, because you know this is going to be fun…
In Kenya, homosexuality is a crime and an overwhelming 96 percent of Kenyans think it is unacceptable. Yet the second most popular search in the country was “gay monster cock”.
Well, if you think gay people are monsters, it makes sense that you’d want to recognize them by cock, just so nothing weird happens. This could be considered important research. Ironically, I’ve found gay monster cocks are only distinguishable from regular cocks by taste.
