In 2014, over the holidays, the number of searches for incest-themed videos on PornHub and its competitors spiked dramatically — hundreds of percents in a single month — and only continued to grow over the course of 2015.

Against better judgment, David Wallace-Wells wanted to know why mother-son porn was becoming more popular, so he sat down with Jesse Bering, author of Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us, to find out.

Plus: Other data, just released this month by PornHub, reveals a whole new set of super-interesting proclivities — it turns out that Italians are really into foot-fetish stuff, and Russians can’t get enough of sexy My Little Pony. With Allison P. Davis, Maureen O’Connor, and David Wallace-Wells.
