A surprising country has topped Google’s rankings for searching for pictures of gay sex.

Anti-gay laws and strong social stigma appear to be doing nothing to abate the curiosity of everyday people – with Kenya’s searches for gay sex outranking those of all Western countries.

Kenya tops the Google trends rankings for both ‘gay sex pics‘ and ‘gay porn pics‘, with an extraordinarily high search index.

South Africa came second, follow by Nigeria and Pakistan – with the US and UK ranking a distant seventh and eighth.

92% of the Kenyan population agree that homosexuality is ‘unacceptable’, while having sex “against the order of nature” in the country can carry a prison sentence of up to 21 years.

MPs in the country recently discussed a new anti-gay bill that would see gay people sentenced to death by stoning.

The Anti-Homosexuality Bill would introduce harsh punishments for homosexuality, with life imprisonment or the death penalty for ‘aggravated homosexuality’.

The bill’s author, Edward Onwong’a Nyakeriga, said: “The petition aims at providing a comprehensive and enhanced legislation to protect the cherished culture of the people of Kenya, legal, religious and traditional family values against the attempts of sexual rights activists seeking to impose their values of sexual promiscuity on the people of Kenya.

“There is need to protect children and youth who are vulnerable to sexual abuse and deviation as a result of cultural changes, uncensored information technology, parentless child developmental settings and increasing attempts by homosexuals to raise children in homosexual relationships through adoption, foster care or otherwise.”
