Sooner or later, this had to happen. Generally, one can research or review just about any topic on the internet nowadays. With this in mind, the folks at Bedbible.com decided to analyze the number of sexual wellness internet searches, state by state. (Editor’s note: Bedbible.com is an adult-only website which displays sexual toys. The website is not suitable for viewing by minors or by those who do not wish to view these types of objects.)
Here’s How The Sexual Wellness Internet Search Rankings Work
Basically, all of the sexual wellness Google search queries were combined to come up with state-by-state rankings. For instance, if someone in Idaho searches the topic “men sexual health,” that counts as one query for that state. Then, if someone in Ohio types into the search bar “symptoms for herpes,” that counts as one query for that state.
Obviously, the sheer total of internet searches for the most populous states would put locations like California, New York, and Texas at the top of the list. However, they determine the final rankings by the average number of sexual wellness internet searches per 100,000 people.
How The Study Determines A Sexual Wellness Internet Search
Furthermore, the study includes 93 Google search terms and phrases. For example, searches to prevent certain sexually transmitted diseases were very common. Moreover, definitions for sexually related diseases and their symptoms were also frequent queries. In like manner, searches for treatments for sexually related ailments were also included.
While many of us would rather not make these questions a topic of discussion amongst friends, co-workers, or family members, the anonymity of doing an internet search can be useful. In any case, make sure you educate yourself with verified information when using the internet. And it’s always a good idea to discuss these matters with a qualified physician.
Some Interesting Notes From The Study
One of the most interesting findings in the study reveals that “symptoms of Chlamydia” is the most searched sexual wellness term across all fifty states. That term averages close to 300,000 Google searches per month. Yikes!
Before we take a look at the top 10 states making sexual wellness queries on the internet, let’s find out which state has the fewest searches per capita. It’s our neighbors to the north in Idaho, who average 603 sexual wellness searches per 100,000 each month. Is that good or bad? I’m really not sure when it comes to this study.
And now, the ten states making the most sexually related internet searches each month.
