Eine Studie hat festgestellt, dass die (männlichen) Gewinner von Wahlen (und ihre Wähler) erhöhte Testosteron-Werte aufweisen. Das führt dazu, dass sie vermehrt Porno im Internet schauen. No shit: Wahl-Afterhours werden mit Porno gefeiert.

According to a new study in this month’s Evolution and Human Behavior, researchers expect a significant increase in Google search terms like "xvideo," "tits," and "boobs" in states in that voted Republican in yesterday's midterm elections—and a significant decrease in those that voted Democrat.* This phenomenon is likely because victory increases testosterone levels, creating a biological impulse to go out and spread one's seed.

So if elections leave some voters feeling victorious, then we would expect to see this behavior dominate in regions where the majority were rooting for the winning side. According to this research, that is exactly what we have seen in the past three major elections in the U.S. In the week following the 2004 U.S. presidential election, Google searches for pornography increased above the average for the year in red states and fell in blue states. After the midterm elections in 2006, when the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives and the Senate, Google search terms for porn increased in blue states—and fell (rather dramatically) in red states. And in the week following the 2008 presidential election, porn searches were up again in the blue states and down again in the red states.
