Gay porn tops internet searches in anti-gay countries

Search data charting the top 10 internet porn habits around the world reveals anti-gay regimes and laws breed an interest in gay pornography

Gay porn tops internet searches in anti-gay countries

Some of the most homophobic countries in the world are really into gay porn, reveals porn search engine PornMD.

The company has published search data today (13 March) mapping porn habits across the globe – and it reveals in many of the worst countries to be LGBT, gay porn is as popular or more popular than straight erotica.

In Kenya, where you can be imprisoned for being gay for up to 14 years, the second most searched for kind of porn is ‘monster cock’.

‘South African gay porn’ is fourth on the list in Nigeria, where you can face death for being gay, and Ghana, where homosexuality is also illegal, seem to have no problem with ‘black lesbians’.

Libyans, who could face up to five years imprisonment for being gay, search for ‘Silver Daddy’ gay porn more than any other type.

In Iran, the list for gay searches goes ‘Daddy love’ at number four, with ‘Hairy’ and ‘Hotel businessman’ at five and six with just plain ‘Iranian’ last. The country gives the death penalty for homosexuality.

Mauritius has ‘spycam gay porn’ as their top search, as well as ‘gay tickling’ at number seven.

In Chile, nine out of 10 searches for erotica were for gay porn. And, in Hungary, the seventh and eighth searches were gay porn featuring ‘Grandpas’ and ‘Koreans’.

Kazakhstan’s top search was Russian gay porn, Lebanon likes looking for guys with ‘big legs’, and the Ukraine’s favorite is ‘Raincoat’ gay porn.

It seems gay people are forced to go underground due to a country’s homophobic attitudes or laws, with many turning to the internet to fulfill their urges.

In countries with civil partnerships and marriage equality such as the United Kingdom, Spain and Sweden, gay men are far less likely to go online to get off. None of the top 10 searches in those countries were for gay porn.

Last month, a separate study revealed watching porn makes straight men more likely to support marriage equality.
