Apparently St. Patrick’s Day Brings Out Some Interesting Searches On PornHub

St. Patrick’s Day is famous for bar crawls, green beer and leprechaun porn.

Yes, you read that right. It turns out that people like to make sure everything on this drunken holiday stays on theme. PornHub released their top St. Patrick’s Day searches, and leprechauns topped the list.

Mashable states

“According to data from the popular adult video site, searches for ‘leprechauns’ … spike over 1,200 percent on the Irish-themed holiday while searches for, well, ‘St. Patrick’s Day’ increase by over 1,000 percent. More interesting are the increases for ‘shamrock’ (811 percent), ‘clover’ (328 percent), and ‘luck’ (251 percent).”

PornHub even released these handy graphics.


Not only was “leprechaun” the top search, but anything “Irish” or “green” seemed to top all of PornHub’s searches.

People were amused.

Though, PornHub may have been leading their customers down the merry green path themselves.

Some wondered what the baseline number for PornHub leprechaun searches would be.

And others even said they were part of the statistic.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
