Sex-based web search in Australia

Searching for sex, state by state | NEWS.com.au

VICTORIANS are lonely and South Australians are kinky, while Queenslanders and people from New South Wales are mad for it, according to a survey of sex-based web searches.

The inaugural Pentagon Grand Australian Sex Survey has measured the number of times web users in each state search for sex-related words through the internet site Google.

Queensland and NSW are bed to bed in the competition, each topping the list for five sex-related words each, ahead of all the other states.

The survey shows people from NSW are more likely to search for “sex”, “brothel”, “adult services”, “porn” and “gay” than in any other state.

But Queenslanders didn’t take the challenge lying down, equalling NSW’s tally of five by searching for “stripper”, “swingers”, “free porn”, “threesome” and “sex shops” more than anyone else.

“While it was a very close battle for internet sex supremacy between the rival states, Queenslanders were not as keen to hand over their credit cards to pay for porn websites,” says Rachel Love, who is the general manager for Gold Coast brothel Pentagon Grand, which is behind the study.

“This could mean that Queenslanders are either smarter or cheaper.”

Naughty South Australians were found looking up “orgy”, “sex toys” and “bondage”, while lonesome Victorians were topped the list searching for “internet dating” and “prostitute”.

“With a capital city known as the city of churches, South Australians really are a different breed behind closed doors,” Ms Love said.

“There are probably a lot of people lining up at confessional each Sunday.

“It’s probably time that the Victorians put down the footballs and VB cans for a while and step out into the world to meet other people.”
