“We were surprised to learn that there are so many unique popular fetishes and sex toys in the U.S. Many states have something they alone can call their favorite, which just goes to show how varied human desire can be! And we think that’s a beautiful thing.
While the data provides insights into the online search behavior of each state, it’s essential to interpret these findings with caution. People may search for various reasons – from genuine interest to education or even humor.
States with higher search volumes for fetish-related content might have more open attitudes toward discussing and exploring different aspects of human sexuality. Conversely, lower search volumes could be attributed to factors such as cultural conservatism or lack of awareness”.
