A study of Google Trends performed by Charlotte Markey, Rutgers University psychologist, and her husband Patrick Markey of Villanova University, tabulated porn keyword usage during the weeks before and after presidential elections in each state during 2004, 2006 and 2008. What they found was a heightened search for online porn in states voting for the winning presidential candidate after the election. Who knew voting for your perception of the lesser evil could effect your libido?
“Research has shown testosterone levels fluctuate with whether or not one wins in a competition,” Charlotte Markey said. “Even if a man is sitting in a bar and his team wins, his testosterone levels will rise.”
