Google Search Volume Index ‘Sex’ – Sri Lanka Beat All The Nations

By Colombo Telegraph

With over 2400 million internet users worldwide, Sri Lanka has managed to secure the number one slot for searching the term ‘sex’ globally.

Sri Lanka became the 100 in the Search Volume Index.

Not many will doubt that one of the most sought after keyword on Internet is “sex”. And Sri Lankans, it seems, are the most search savvy when it comes to Googling that term.

This is according to Google Trends, a public web facility that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages.

Second-placed India is not far behind in search for the term, and so isn’t (surprise, surprise) #3 Papua New Guinea and #4 Ethiopia even as Pakistan completes the Top 5 nations that Googled for ‘sex’ in 2012.

According to Google Trends, search for the term peaked in Sri Lanka during the week April 15-21, 2012, even as the partial data for the current week (December 23-29, 2012) shows it as second-highest week during which the term was Goggled in 2012.

In India, people most Googled for the term during the week November 11-17, 2012 while the week October 21-27, 2012, wasn’t far behind.

When it comes to breaking down the data by cities, however, India’s Bangalore tops the charts for people Googling the term ‘sex’ in 2012.

In fact, the top 5 slots are all Indian cities – Bangalore is followed by Chennai, Pune New Delhi and Calcutta, in that order.

And mind you, this is a worldwide list – not the list of Indian cities most searching for the term. Pakistan’s Lahore is at No. 6 while the next two – Chandigarh and Mumbai – are again Indian cities, followed by Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, both in Vietnam.

Below are the ‘rankings’ for 2012, as of December 26, 2012.

    This could well be because of the lack of adequate awareness programs about sex.

    Unlike any other nations in the regions, ours have been busy with sex as a result.
    May also be possible that our school education clearly lacks the need of young ones to know about sex education. Authorities should have to think about this – not just criticising the youth.

    Avoid risks on Aids OR any other sexually transmitted diseases can easily be controlled if the youth are well informed about the danger. This the statistics from European countries have clearly proved in the last few decades.

      “Native Vedda at full throttle hating the Sinhalese!”

      I don’t hate people. How can you hate stupid people. Actually the stupid need a lot of love and support. To prove it I am even responding to your comment.

      I oppose Sinhala/Buddhists stupidity not Sinhalese nor Buddhists.

    The reason for this peak of sex mania is their self styled cultural taboos, encaged sex drives, lack of opportunities in finding fulfillment, legal barriers, social barriers, religious barriers and now they have found an ideal way of peeping into others bedrooms though internet! Since this internet thing is a new thing they got hold of they are using it at full throttle until they are fed up of it! In a way Native’s anger is justified due to the actions of the ill-bred fuckers in the armed forces for which this MARA fucker is solely responsible!

    The main reason for this is because people in Sri Lanka aren’t aware of the terms used, other than the word “sex”.
