As clowns surge in notoriety in a country riveted by a scary clown epidemic, people are turning to porn to better understand their fears. Or something. What we mean is: Clown searches on Pornhub were up 213% in October.

According to the porn site, this surge happens to any subject that gets "increased media coverage," but as a media company we refuse to take the blame for this. This is on you guys.

The most searched for terms are, in order, "clown porn," "clown girl," and—wow—"clown gangbang."

As if you didn't already know that.

For unknown reasons, women flock to this freaky fruit 33% more than men.

Pornhub statisticians (the dream job for any math major) were also sure to research the preceding searches, or what people were watching before they decided, "you know what? I'm gonna look for clown porn now."

Cool, no comment.
