Milton Keynes: world centre of porn and sex

Google Trends tells it like it is

It's official: Milton Keynes is the world's centre of pornography and sex, according to Google Trends.

In fact, the UK completely dominates the global porn/sex rankings, holding the top five positions:

  1. Milton Keynes, United Kingdom
  2. Sheffield, United Kingdom
  3. Birmingham, United Kingdom
  4. Edinburgh, United Kingdom
  5. Manchester, United Kingdom
  6. Dublin, Ireland
  7. Auckland, New Zealand
  8. Melbourne, Australia
  9. Irvine, CA, USA
  10. Sydney, Australia

It's a pretty poor showing by Dublin, it must be said, which might explain why the city still tops the international loneliness index, almost a year after we first reported on Dubliners' misery.

Mind you, Brentford seems to have cheered up a bit. In May last year, it ranked 8th in the slough of despond league table, but has now dropped out of the rankings. Readers are invited to speculate what exactly has provoked this remarkable improvement. ®
