What To Know About Presidential Candidate Porn Searches

Almost everything pop culture has to offer is reflected in pornography these days. New Ghostbusters movie? There’s a porn parody. Presidential election? Presidential candidate porn searches skyrocket.

As Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are on everyone’s lips, it’s fitting that election-obsessed folks might find themselves slipping into political territory when they get to glad-handing. After all, it’s nearly impossible to go online without reading an unhinged rant and/or astute analysis of the debacle that is the 2016 presidential election, so why not masturbate some of the anxiety away? According to Pornhub’s latest insights, people are getting politically erect like never before.

Although there have been multiple Trump porn spoofs already (:::shudder:::), up until now we weren’t exactly sure what kind of person would seek them out. Thanks to the ways the internet can track your smut-seeking predilections, however, there’s stats and facts about the gender, location, age, and taste of presidential hopeful porn pervs across the nation.

While we’re on the subject of porn and presidents, I should note the latest sex-negative shocker in this election: Donald Trump’s pledge against porn if he becomes president. If you needed one more reason not to vote for Trump here it is.

Check out what Pornhub insights reveal about presidential porn searches:

1. Trump Is More Popular In Porn Searches

Trump is notoriously obsessed with winning, so he might be happy to know that Pornhub visitors search for Donald Trump 144 percent more than they did for Hillary Clinton. Women were 26 percent more likely to search for him, which I personally chalk up to the fact that sometimes jerking off is like rubbernecking as you pass a particularly awful accident. It's so wrong and horrifying to look at but somehow you just. can't. stop...

2. During The DNC, Clinton Searches Skyrocketed

During the Democratic National Convention, Pornhub saw a surge in Hillary's popularity. Clinton was searched 222 percent more across the country as Dems took the stage to sing her praises, and in Philadelphia in particular, her search rate increased 233 percent. FLOTUS Michelle Obama saw a 275 percent increase as well during this time.

3. Young People Are Doing The Bulk Of This Presidential Candidate Porn Searching

It's no surprise that folks 18-24 are the ones who have the time and/or interest in hitting Pornhub to watch salacious videos featuring faux Trumps and Clintons sexing. Young people in this group search for Trump 92 percent and Clinton 61 percent more than any other age group. I'm not saying they'll regret all the time they spent searching for smutty Trump videos, but, OK, yeah, maybe I kinda am.

4. Some States Really Like Their Presidential Candidate Porn

Although Trump reigns in porn searches across the board, certain states are more sweet on him than others, including Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and Massachusetts. However, there are definitely some Hillary fans in Wyoming, South Dakota, West Virginia, New Hampshire and Ohio, where Clinton porn searches are highest.

5. Melania Trump Is The Latest Hot Search

After it was revealed that Melania Trump posed nude during her modeling days, searches for the Republican nominee's Slovenian-born wife were off the charts. Plenty of folks have taken the time to slut-shame the potential future first lady since then, but how much do you want to bet many of those very same people helped cause the 2,019 percent spike in Pornhub searches for Mrs. Trump?
