Chart: use of "penis" and "vagina" ranked by ratio


#1

#2

Pretty sure the chart misses the thousands of (well, maybe not thousands) of Gawker “Is this a dick?” posts because it is based on the actual word “penis” and not variants. Shrug.


#3

Even BusinessWeek uses “vagina” more often that the DrudgeReport, which is a 100% sausage-fest.


UPDATE: the original source notes

The data in that chart came from computers, but I wouldn’t go citing it all around town. For example the DrudgeReport.com ratio is so high because there are only a handful of results for those searches — and Drudge doesn’t appear to be indexed by Bing. Businessweek seems be indexing a “most cited story” that appeared on lots of pages and included the word “penis.” And so forth. The outliers are suspect; things closer to the median less so.

I like the mirror image between Elle and Vogue. I assumed they were pretty much the same magazine, but apparently not!


#5

Mildly surprised that Reuters has such a high Vagina-ratio.


#6

Weather.com seems like a strange place for either penis or vagina comments.


#7

So how many uses of vulva, or labia?


#8

Where does Boing Boing fall in the “cats are jerks” vs “dogs are bros” issue?


#9

Someone needs to send an emergency supply of penises to India, stat.


#10

Well, that’s just a load of bollocks.


#11

I’m surprised to see such a stark gulf between hacker news and slashdot.

Clearly you need to write about vaginas more.


#15

The hindu prefers the term trouser snake.

Get out of my head!


#17

Seriously, get out…

Fumbles, it was always Fumbles…


#19

It nice to see en.wikipedia as exactly balanced.


#20

So… lots more vaginas on BoingBoing?

…or just not so many dicks?
