On Tuesday, Buzzfeed published a dossier of unverified allegations by a former British intelligence official claiming that Russia has some very compromising information on president-elect Donald Trump. Since then, both Trump and Russia have denied the claims. While the report is 35-pages long, and filled with plenty of other allegations involving treason, so much attention has been given to these two words in the unverified documents: Golden Showers.

...aka the sex fetish where people enjoy urinating on or being urinated on by their partner. As it turns out, many people have taken their curiosity even further because the latest report from Pornhub insights found that searches for “golden shower” porn has increased by 289 percent.

According to Pornhub, golden showers are actually really popular fetish. On January 10, when Buzzfeed published the report, searches for “Golden Shower” on Pornhub increased by 102 percent in comparison to their usual daily average. By January 11, searches increased by 289 percent. The term “watersports,” which is also used to refer to the kink, saw a 215 percent increase in searches. But that’s not all. Here’s everything you need to know about golden shower porn:

Perhaps it's our parents Googling the sex act they're seeing all over the news, but according to the insights, the demographic most likely to search for golden showers is men over 65-years-old. They're 75 percent more likely to search for it than all other age groups. People between 18 to 24 are least likely to search for it, and searches grow with age.

It makes sense given what that's all about. Other popular related search terms include "caught pissing," "watersports," and "pissing lesbians."

Other countries where golden showers are popular include Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Russia.

5Searches For "Donald Trump" Increased A Ton

By January 11, searches for "Donald Trump" increased by 273 percent. Maybe the curiosity over the alleged video proof has something to do with it. But considering that this allegation has become such a big thing, I wouldn't be surprised to find a porn made of it very soon.

In denying the allegations in a press conference, Trump claimed he’s actually a germaphobe. Whether or not that actually makes sense isn’t the issue here. I’m more concerned over why this even matters. Believe me, I'm not a fan of Trump's, but if the reports are true, and he’s really into golden showers, who really cares?

Shaming someone on social media for allegedly enjoying a kink is actually something Trump would do if it were anybody else but him. We should be asking ourselves, what would Trump not do in this situation? Besides, there are so many other worse things in the report to talk about than a sexual kink. We all have kinks. So let’s get over it and move on.
