Internet Porn is Seasonal

Who knew?

From a paper published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior

“Harmonic analyses were used to examine the seasonal trends of Google keyword searches during the past 5 years for topics related to pornography, prostitution, and mate-seeking. Results indicated a consistent 6-month harmonic cycle with the peaks of keyword searches related to sex and mating behaviors occurring most frequently during winter and early summer.”

Thanks, Science!

The childhood home of Jeffrey Dahmer is up for sale in Akron, Ohio. As an added piece of history, it is also the location of his first murder —“a hitchhiker named Steven Hicks whom he lured back to the house with promises of drugs and alcohol, and then clubbed with a barbell after Hicks said he wanted to leave. Dahmer later dismembered Hicks’ corpse in the house’s crawlspace.”
