More porn and less COVID-19

The main internet search engines reported that Mendoza are more interested in porn content than COVID-19.

As we are
más porno

The most commonly used search engines on the internet are saving information permanently. Thus, they can compile statistics on the tastes and preferences of the inhabitants of a given region in a given period. In the case of Mendoza, the data is curious. These show that   Mendoza  is only looking for information about COVID-19 during the first month of quarantine. The rest of the confinement, to date, we have been more interested in porn and erotic content than the pandemic.

Although COVID 19 is “the theme” of 2020, in the privacy of Mendoza has not been the priority, neither throughout the year nor in the last three months. According to  Google Trends  data about the province,  there are more searches for “porn” than for “coronavirus”. 

The trend changed only during the first month of the quarantine, when restrictions, cases and deaths were the main interests. However, after April 26, when the last peak of interest occurred in Mendoza (the day when departures were allowed up to 500 meters), the boom stabilized below the erotic content.

If you take into account the period  between January 1, 2020 to date, the results are surprising, since the sectors leading the searches are towns or towns far from urbanization. The area where pornography was most searched through Google was La Consulta, in San Carlos, followed by   Malargüe , who usually leads the ranking in the different time spans that can be measured.

For the past six months, only in four departments the interest in “porn” remained above what was happening in the world: San Carlos, Malargüe, Tunuyán and  Tupungato .  The rest of the municipalities reprioritized this type of content only after April 26. 

Once the first month of quarantine passed, coronavirus searches stabilized below adult content.  In the case of COVID 19, interest shifted from what was happening in countries such as Italy or Chile to the numbers of deceased, the confinement phases and the situation in other provinces, such as San Luis. 

 Victims of confinement 

The strictest confinement Mendoza had coincides with the time when porn content was prioritized over coronavirus information.  Mid-March and April was the time when people stayed, in some cases, more than a whole month inside their home, without even leaving, to go to  supermarket .  This led to many feeling the need to consume erotic content, given the logic of sexual abstinence.

Similarly, as the restrictions were more moderate and flexible, people stopped consuming these products since, despite the ban, many people began to have casual encounters.

However, also many others left to consult on porn terms as technology, phones and cameras also helped the much commented  “sexting”. A  practice  that the authorities themselves promoted to avoid physical contact between people.
