Sex or Ice Cream?
Right now all the Geek Beat fans in prison are thinking… I’m not really in the mood for lovin’, so give me the Ice Cream! But you guys would be wrong! Because statistically speaking, Sex is WAY more popular than Ice Cream, at least according to Google!
No Contest, Really
And when I say way more, I’m talking by a factor of 50! That’s right. Even in August, Google trends scores sex searches at a blistering 101, which coincidentally is the temperature here in Texas, while Ice Cream gets a paltry 2. TWO!
What I really find strange is, although the interest in ice cream seems to remain fairly flat, the interest in sex has actually increased by about 80% over the last decade. How is that even possible?
Tracking Regional Interest
What’s fascinating however, is the amazing regional interest in sex coming from the Asia Pacific area. Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and… PAKISTAN round out the top five countries searching for all the right things in all the wrong places. I gotta admit, I did NOT see that one coming.
They Love Ice Cream in St. Vincent
Meanwhile, over in Ice Cream land, the top searcher by FAR is St. Vincent & The Grenadines, followed by the USA, Singapore, Dominica and the Philippines. But to be clear, the tiny island nation of St. Vincent, which I had to look up on Wikipedia, has about double the search interest as the US, which was in second place!
All I know is that the 120,000 residents of this 150 square mile island loves them some ice cream! And I do have a theory! Because St. Vincent is in the Caribbean, so it’s pretty hot there. But more importantly, they are definitely smoking a lot of weed! So I’m guessing they are extra munchy, which makes them want Ice Cream!
What’s Most Popular in Each Category?
Now, did you know that Google actually tracks what’s RISING when it comes to Sex? Yep. And searches for Phim Sex are up 3,450%! Though I have to admit, I don’t know what that is, and I’m too scared to even find out.
Back in the world of frosty desserts, I was surprised to see “bad ice cream” is up 1,100%. But that makes me wonder why? Is it because even bad ice cream is still good?
Well, anyway, it’s time for me to go get some ice cream. So I’m just gonna to leave you with this crazy video of girls eating ice cream in Japan…
