Top 10 Countries That Search For Gay Porn The Most On Google


According to the most recent Google’s search rankings Kenya tops the list, followed by South Africa. The list shows some very interesting insight given the rights of the LGBT communities in the world.

Kenya ranks number one primarily with searches for ‘gay sex pics’ and ‘gay porn pics'.  Gay sex is illegal in Kenya. The East African country punishes homosexual sex between men with 14 years' imprisonment, which goes up to 21 years if it is not consensual. For some inexplicable reason, the  law only applies to men. Also 92% of Kenyans reportedly claim to believe that homosexuality is ‘unacceptable’

South Africa at number two, is one of the countries touted around the world for its progressive stance on gay rights. Presently Mzansi is the only African country that recognises gay marriages and offer gay citizen full rights enjoyed under the law by everyone. 

However, as some of you may have seen on Checkpoint recently, South Africa's cultural attitude, predominantly amongst black communities, is still tilted towards anti-gay sentiment. Another concerning issue is the prevalence of crimes committed against homosexuals with corrective rape towards lesbians being at the centre of issue. 

Interestingly, countries with the highest intolerance for gay people have the highest numbers of people searching gay terms online. The top 5 countries with the exception of South Africa have laws that punish homosexuals for the act of sex between same sex couples. 

The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) which compiles an annual report on laws that either criminalise, or recognise and protect, same-sex relations around the world found that; in 34 African countries same-sex sexual acts are illegal.

Africa has 55 states that are recognised by either the AU or the UN or both, and the reports by leading groups on gay rights count 34 African countries that outlaw same-sex sexual acts. However,  Benin and the Central African Republic, laws on sexual acts in public or with people under 21 apply differently to gay and straight people, but it’s not illegal for them to have sex in private or with people aged 21 and above.

As for our neighbours; In Zimbabwe men who practice anal intercourse or perform other so-called “indecent acts” can face a prison sentence of up to one year and a fine. Botswana's criminal law states that anyone who has “carnal knowledge of any person against the order of nature”—a phrase often used in legal codes to refer to homosexual activity—can be sentenced to prison for up to seven years.

I personally know of no-one in Botswana who has been prosecuted for being gay. Festus Mogae, the former president of Botswana, has been reported to have said that African leaders who refuse to acknowledge LGBT rights are “selfish” and have the “wrong mentality.”. 

In August 2017, Botswana High Court sat for a groundbreaking case of a transgender woman Tshepo Ricki Kgositau who’s been refused to be legally recognised as a woman. She challenged the Registrar of National Registration law for "violated her rights through its refusal to change the gender marker on her identity document".
