But really, how does sex work?

It’s hard to remember how questions were answered and arguments were resolved before Google.

Just think, without Google we could be walking the earth with our heads filled with a series of niche, slightly strange and heavily personal questions, probably worrying ourselves into an illness that only Google could diagnose.

And we’re not alone.

American real estate website, Esately have put together a map of the most Googled questions state by state over the last 12 years, and the results are a cross between hilarious, endearing, worrying and embarrassing.

Here are a few of our favourites in alphabetical order. Absolute shout out to Texas, by the way.
