America's most prestigious newspaper, The New York Times. . . has published a super interesting article about how often people Google super gross stuff, like the size of their... um... situation, and why they smell bad.

But don't get up on your judgey high horse, after all, you clicked on this article.

An economist just studied search data to find out what sex subjects we're turning to Google to answer.  (And, for the record, I feel super unsafe about this practice!  I mean, how much of the information available on the internet is even real?!)

Alas, here are some of the most interesting findings . . .

  • People Google, quote, "my penis" more than any other body part . . . by far.  More than questions about their lungs, liver, feet, ears, nose, throat, and brain COMBINED.
  • Of the top 10 most common Google searches about men's junk, NINE are about size.  The top search is, "how to make my penis bigger" . . . number two is "how to make my penis longer."
  • The only search that isn't about size is the seventh most common search . . . "Why does my penis smell?" Gross.
  • 1% of men's searches about their junk are about how to make it smaller. (huh?)
  • However, 40% of Google searches by women about men's junk are that their partner's is TOO BIG, and causes pain. (huh??)
  • Men are 20 times more likely to search for porn featuring big breasts than small breasts.
  • The top 10 things women Google regarding the ODOR of their lady parts are:  Fish . . . vinegar . . . onions . . . ammonia . . . garlic . . . cheese . . . body odor . . . pee . . . bread . . . and bleach. (eeeeeewwww!)
  • Since 2010, the number of searches for butt implants has quadrupled. #nickymanaj
  • The most common thing men Google about their girlfriend's breasts is . . . "I love my girlfriend's boobs."  (Where are they trying to go with that? But, at least they're not trying to find someone else's girlfriend's boobs.)

So, there you have it.

Gross, but interesting none the less.  Thanks New York Times!  But hey, you had a snow day today, right?  I'm just trying to help you pass some time!
