Golden shower searches shoot up after Trump dossier

Searches for golden showers have rocketed since the alleged report into Donald Trump’s sexual activities broke.

A sensational but unconfirmed report alleged that Russia has a video tape filmed by secret FSB cameras at a hotel where Trump stayed in Moscow – which purportedly shows him engaging sex workers in acts of urination.

The news saw searches for the act of golden showers shoot up on website PornHub.

For those who don’t know, PornHub’s description of golden showers goes like this: “Sometimes referred to as “watersports”, it’s a surprisingly popular fetish in which people either enjoy being urinated on, or urinating on their partner.”

Searches containing “Golden Shower” increased by an incredible 289% compared to the usual daily average after the news.

PornHub also found that “watersports” searches increased by 215% along with other related terms like “pissing”.

Searches for “Donald Trump” were up by 273% on January 11 – though it’s not clear what users were hoping to see when searching for Trump.

The breakdown of where it’s most popular in the US is even more revealing.

The home of Bernie Sanders ranks in at first.

More people searched for golden showers and watersports in Vermont folowing the Trump news than anywhere else.

The global breakdown reveals that Russia was high up the list of places that searched the news.

The country where Trump’s alleged activities happened came in fifth for biggest golden shower search spikes.

Czech Republic was the number one in the search.

The unconfirmed report alleges that Russia has prepared a file of compromising intel aimed at influencing the US leader.

According to the report, one item held by the Russian government is a video tape filmed by secret FSB cameras at a hotel where Trump stayed in Moscow – which purportedly shows him engaging sex workers in acts of urination.

It says: “Trump‘s (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs. Obama (who he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him.”

A subsequent report from the Guardian has alleged that the FBI last summer applied for a warrant to monitor four Trump campaign officials over suspicions of “irregular contact” with Russian officials, after the dossier was passed on by Senator John McCain.

The foreign intelligence surveillance court declined to grant a warrant.

Trump has angrily denied the claims, tweeting: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!”.

Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, who is named in the report, has denied making a trip to Prague where the report alleges he met Russian officials.

The Russian government has rubbished the claims.

It says: “This is an obvious attempt to harm our bilateral relations Pulp fiction, that’s what it is called in English. Of course, probably the best way to react would be accordingly – with a certain sense of humor.

“Although there is a downside – indeed, there are those who are stirring up the hysteria, who go out of their way to maintain this state of a witch-hunt.”

However Buzzfeed has defended its decision to publish the report.

Editor-in-chief Ben Smith wrote in a message to staff: “Our presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers. We have always erred on the side of publishing. In this case, the document was in wide circulation at the highest levels of American government and media.

“It seems to lie behind a set of vague allegations from the Senate Majority Leader to the director of the FBI and a report that intelligence agencies have delivered to the president and president-elect.

“Publishing the document was not an easy or simple call, and people of good will may disagree with our choice. But publishing this dossier reflects how we see the job of reporters in 2017.”
