What kind of porn are New Yorkers searching for? How about Nigerians? Palestinians? Portuguese?

PornMD, which, despite its distinguished-sounding name is actually a porn search engine in PornHub's popular network of pornography sites, just published a genuinely fascinating interactive infographic about the search habits of porn users around the world. You can see the top ten searches in an array of countries and all 50 states.

Some are expected--teen, Asian, MILF--and some are more a result of the fact that PornHub is an English-language site, so a speaker of another language might naturally search for pornography in their own tongue, so to speak. (Interestingly, while 49 of the states have the same standard 10 or 15 searches, Hawaii's searches are more similar to those of foreign nations than its fellow states: the most popular searches are for "Hawaiian" porn in addition to Asian and Japanese, cultures heavily represented on the islands.)

And then there's the...weirder...stuff. Why does Iran search so enthusiastically for gay hotel businessman porn? Especially given Ahmadinejad's statement that there are no gay people in his country? Why do Ukrainians search for "gay raincoat" porn above all else? What even is that? Does the entire nation of Finland have an Oedipal complex?
