Slap the Penguin readers are perverts

Since there won't be any reslap posts for a while, I took some time just cruising the site looking for something to fill the gaping void. While I was looking at the site from a reader's perspective, I noticed a rather horrifying trend. Towards the bottom of the page we have a list of the top 5 most visited posts for the last week. It turns out that most of our readers are perverts. (Scroll down and see the evidence for yourself)

Four out of the five stories have a sexual theme. Flo in Playboy, Taylor Swift's boobs, Sexting, and Vajazzling. And it's not like these posts are recent. With the exception of the dog crapping at Crufts, these stories are at least 10 months old.

I dug around a little more and discovered that out of the nearly 300 posts published so far, these 4 account for almost 40% of pages visited in the last 6 months. With such overwhelming evidence, I have suggested that we rename the site 'Slap the Pervert'.

Why do you think that the stories with a sexual content are the most visited pages on the site? Please use the comments section below to share your opinion.

I'm guessing the reason all the sexual content is below because you used the word 'pervert' in the title of the post.

OR... this is one sexy blog! :-)

Well I think its because sexy sells as well as sensual stuff that raises an eyebrow.

Wha?! I'm a fine, upstanding citizen, just so you know. :) Sex does sell, though, doesn't it? Plus they're funny posts, which doesn't hurt either!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and comments.

Zobop, this IS one sexy blog, you called it.

Angie, you are so right that sexy sells, and the stats show that.

Janene, thanks for spotting the humor behind sex. It takes a fine, upstanding citizen to look beyond the sex.
