Pakistanis top hits to porn sites: report

Last updated: 15 July, 2010
Islamabad, July 15 (PTI):

Pakistan may well be named 'Pornistan' after search trends thrown by Google indicate that it is the world leader in porn searches.

Pakistan -- the land of the pure – where websites get banned for showing offensive and blasphemous material at the drop of the hat, has been ranked as the top country for searching sex-related terms, according to a Fox News report.

"So here's the irony: Google ranks Pakistan No. 1 in the world in searches for pornographic terms, outranking every other country in the world in searches per person for certain sex-related content," the report reads.

"Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for 'horse sex' since 2004, 'donkey sex' since 2007, 'rape pictures' between 2004 and 2009, 'rape sex' since 2004, 'child sex' between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, 'animal sex' since 2004 and 'dog sex' since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms."

The country also tops -- or has been No.1 -- in searches for "sex," "camel sex," "rape video," "child sex video" and some other unprintable searches.

Google Trends generates data of popular search terms in geographic locations during specific time frames.

Google Insights is a more advanced version that allows users to filter a search to geographic locations, time frames and the nature of a search, including web, images, products and news.

Pakistan ranked No. 1 in all the searches listed above on Google Trends, but on only some of them in Google Insights.

"We do our best to provide accurate data and to provide insights into broad search patterns, but the results for a given query may contain inaccuracies due to data sampling issues, approximations, or incomplete data for the terms entered," Google said in a statement, when asked about the accuracy of its reports.

The Embassy of Islamic Republic of Pakistan did not reply to a request for an interview, the report read.

In addition to banning content on 17 websites, including islamexposed.blogspot.com, Pakistan is monitoring seven other sites -- Google, Yahoo, Bing, YouTube, Amazon, MSN and Hotmail -- for anti-Islamic content.

Pakistan temporarily banned Facebook in May when Muslim groups protested the 'Everybody Draw Muhammad Day' page.

The country's punishment for those charged with blasphemy is execution, but the question remains what -- if anything -- can be done about people who search for porn on the web.
