Two days after the Kim Kardashian cover on Paper Magazine came out Nov. 13, featuring the reality television star-turned-mogul balancing a glass of champagne on her backside, searches for Kardashian increased by 629 percent in the U.S. and 558 percent worldwide on Pornhub, the largest porn website in the world.
Apparently, full-frontal nude images of Kardashian weren’t enough; fans wanted to see Kardashian's sex tape with Ray J, which some argue launched her career.
Pornhub, which refers to Kardashian as a “porn star,” says that more women all over the world search for her on the porn video sharing site than for any other porn star. Kardashian is also the porn star most searched for by men and women in the U.S. and the U.K.
Since it was uploaded in March 2011, Kardashian’s sex tape with Ray J has over 93 million views on Pornhub, and every time Kim Kardashian makes the news -- whether it's by getting married, divorced, or pregnant -- searches for her sex tape spike anew.
Her marriage to Kanye West in May 2014 caused the lowest spike in sex tape searches of her life events, however. Searches for her sex tape went up only 17 percent in the U.S. and 25 percent around the world.
