Google, after recently running an analysis of its search queries, was able to determine which country stands at number one in sex-related content search. And you’ll never guess which one won out.

It’s Pakistan. This Muslim nation, notorious for conservatism, religious orthodoxy, and fanatical censorship seems to actually be the world’s forerunner in sex searches online according to data in Google Trends parsed by Fox News. It seems contrary that a nation who responds to blasphemy charges with execution is also the nation with more searches for a number of searches related to beastiality, sexual violence and other beyond-the-pale search terms.

The irony is overwhelming. Pakistan constantly supervises the web for ‘anti-Islamic content’ and in the process has banned over a dozen websites, has, at one point suspended access to Facebook, and continues to monitor sites such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, YouTube, Amazon, MSN, and Hotmail. (Maybe you’ve heard of some of them.) But despite vigilant policing online, Pakistan still managed to come out number one for pornographic searches. (via Fox News).
