Clown porn searches spike thanks to creepy clowns

We’ve seen numerous reports of dodgy clowns in the news but, when combined with the proximity to Halloween, it seems like clown porn is enjoying an uptick in┬ápopularity.

According to adult streaming website Pornhub, clown-related searches have grown by as much as 213% over the past few weeks.

There have been over 100 000 clown-related searches in the past 30 days, Pornhub said, but added that clown porn isn’t anything new.

The combination of creepy clowns and Halloween makes for an uptick in clown porn searches

“The most popular search is ‘clown porn’ followed by ‘clown girl’ and ‘clown gangbang’,” the Pornhub Insights blog explained. Other notable searches include “sexy clown”, “scary clown”, “birthday clown” and… “clown fart”.

Proportionally speaking, women were 33% more likely to search for it, Pornhub added.

Pornhub also looked at search terms used immediately before clown-related searches, with the most popular term being “circus”. This was followed by “juggalette” and “harley quinn”.
