No one is safe from OMF's Whiner Line.

I’m not even joking when I say that the most useful tool in the study of human behavior we have today is online porn. You can learn more about the human race by what people are watching on adult sites than all the clinical research, sociological trends and psychiatric case studies in the world.

To that end, the team of crack researchers over at Pornhub Insights have analyzed the most recent data of search trends around the Rio Olympics (link SFW), both at the Games themselves and world wide. Some of the most telling conclusions:

  • From the first day of the Olympics, the usual traffic volume from Rio itself  jumped as high as 15 percent above its usual average.
  • Pornhub searches containing “Rio” were 243 percent above average. The third most common Rio related search was “Rio Olympics”.
  • Searches relating to “Olympic” and “Olympian” went up 2,729 percent above average.
  • The most popular search was “nude Olympics”, followed by “Olympics” and “sex Olympics.”
  • Searches for “athletes” in general were 417 percent above average during the games, with “athlete Olympic” the second most searched term.
  • The most searched for sport was “Volleyball,” followed by “Soccer/Football,” “Swimming” and “Gymnastics/Gymnast.”
  • The second most popular search was “beach volleyball,” followed by “volleyball ass.”
  • Searches relating to gymnasts and gymnastics increased 245 percent during the Olympics, peaking at 382 percent above average on Aug. 10. The most popular search was “naked gymnastics.”
  • Searches for judo were 76 percent above average. While “judo” was the most popular search, “nude judo” and “judo footjob” were also increasingly popular.
  • Searches for “marathon” were up 462 percent overall, but that was mostly non-running related, with “sex marathon,” followed by “marathon” and “masturbation marathon.”

I might not be an actual scientist, but I feel like my whole life’s work has been a sort of amateur form of anthropology. People and their behavior are my passion and always have been. So here is my expert analysis of this data.

People are horny.

That might sound overly simplistic, but it’s something I think a lot of us try to deny. There’s a segment of the population that acts offended by the mere suggestion that we’re motivated by sex, but that doesn’t mean we’re not. And that goes for sports.

Part of the appeal of sports is watching attractive, athletic, fit people do physical things in revealing outfits. Yet there are those who claim it’s somehow sexist or demeaning to admit that. The media covering say, beach volleyball act as though its appeal is all about the competition and the athleticism and not the obvious butt shots. Feminists would prefer that you appreciate gymnastics for the grace and power of the athletes while ignoring the fact they’re adult women with sex appeal.

But all of them are in denial of basic and very, very human impulses. No matter your orientation, if you’re a sexual being you’re going to be interested in seeing sexy people doing things. To claim otherwise is to try to repress millions of years of evolutionary hard-wiring.

So relax, everyone. And just accept it. Whether you have a crush on Aly Raisman, are a gay man seeking “a swimmer’s body” or searching Pornhub for judo feet, you’re just being natural. And I’ll see you during the next Winter Olympics, searching for videos during the ladies figure skating finals.

Heat StreetThe University of Chicago, one of America’s most prestigious and selective universities, is warning incoming students starting this fall not to expect safe spaces and a trigger-free existence during their four-year journey through academia.

In a letter sent to the class of 2020, Dean of Students John (Jay) Ellison said one of the defining characteristics of the school was its unwavering commitment to freedom of inquiry and expression. Civility and mutual respect are vital to the campus culture, the letter states, but not at the expense of shielding students from unpopular opinions or ideas.

“Our commitment to academic freedom means that we do not support so-called “trigger warnings,” we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual “safe spaces” where individuals can retreat from ideas and perspectives at odds with their own,” the letter states.

Now you’ve gone and done it, University of Chicago. You’ve run headlong at full speed into the withering fire of the political correctness machine gun nest. It’s a move that takes balls of titanium, and I admire you for it. But it’s not going to be an easy year for the Maroons.

And believe me, you do so to the sound of a hundred million standing ovations. The non-academic community has your six all the way on this one. You could have taken the easy route. Looked around to find yourself surrounded by the rest of the frail, terrified, rabbit-eared uber-sensitive college administrators across America and refused to capitulate. But you chose a nobler path. You chose bravery over cowardice. And you will not be abandoned. Not on my watch.

I just hope the John (Jay) Ellisons on campus are willing to stand their ground, because there will be consequences. Parents from next year’s freshman class who decide to send their precious little snowflakes to some other institution where they won’t have to, say, listen to a conservative economist. Coeds who faint at the sound of the word “girl.” Liberal arts majors who need treatment for PTSD if they see “Vote Trump” written in sidewalk chalk. Faculty who refuse to use potential “trigger” words like “male” or “female.” Students desperate for protection from “microaggressions” like … well, like anything at all that you’ll find in normal, human interactions.

I’d say “Godspeed” on the U. of Chicago’s efforts if I wasn’t worried that would interfere with the “safe space” of whatever atheist/agnostic/pagan/devil worshippers are still on campus in the wake of this announcement. So instead, I’ll just say, “Good luck.”
