Ontario residents Google “missionary position” more than other Canadians

Inspired by a bit of research from website Estately, which used Google Trends to find out what terms separate states searched for on the internet more than any other, the Vancouver Province recently did the same with Canada’s provinces and territories.

How should we interpret the fact that Ontario residents Google “missionary position” more than any other province? Is the bulk of Canada’s population in the dark about the subject? Looking for instructional DVDs or diagrams? Those outside the province might have a different take than those within. You can hear the chuckles right now from, say, Calgary.

But wait a minute, Albertans, you searched for “Adult Diapers” more than any other province. What does this mean? Depends, really.

Other notable results? In Nova Scotia, home of the “Trailer Park Boys”, they searched for “Weed”. In Saskatchewan they searched for “Cold Sores”. And Quebeckers searched for “Ron Jeremy”. What’s French for hedgehog?

The U.S. results from Estately were a little more predictable, for the most part. Residents of Alabama searched for “God”. Alaskans for “Mail Order Bride”. And Arkansas, one of the country’s fattest states, led the nation in searches for “Lap Band Surgery”.

Massachusetts topped the nation in, among other things, “Canadian Men”. Careful, New Englanders looking for a date with a tall handsome Canuck, you might find them to be a tad boring in the bedroom. Unless of course, you extend your search to Manitoba, where they search for “Dress Up” more than any other Canadians.
