Minnesotans have a thing for stepsister porn

Technically "Cruel Intentions" is not porn. But we wanted you to be able to read this at work.

In general, your use — or non-use, you liar —  of pornography is your deal. What titillating material you choose to consume in your free time is between you and your internet connection, so long as you don't do it on the subway. (Or in line at Subway.) 

But it's less unseemly and a little more interesting, from a sociological perspective, to take a larger scale look at what's turning people on. And, in this case, where.

The folks at Pornhub released their annual review of the most-searched terms on its website by United States users. You can see it here. (Link surprisingly not-NSFW.) 

Many states, including the most populous, like watching women have sex. "Lesbian" was the top search term in 30 states, capturing the imaginations of users in territories as different as California, New Jersey, Texas and the Carolinas. 

But not here. Minnesota's top term, shared with a handful of other states, is "stepsister."

Our fellow step-curious states on Pornhub are Montana, Wyoming, Maine, and Ohio. It's a strange grouping of states, and it's hard to guess at share traits across the five of us.

What do Montana, Wyoming, Maine, Ohio, and Minnesota have in common? We like thinking about getting it on with our half-siblings. That's what. 

If, behind closed doors (please, close the door) you were contributing to our most-searched term, now you know you're not alone in your tastes. Far from it: Step-sibling romance is popular, with 2,000-plus titles on Amazon under that category, and some climbing its bestseller lists.

So, anyway. Go ahead, go back to work now. Though, this statistical finding might just give Minnesota's divorcees something to think about.

Hopefully not too much thinking.
